Southampton zoning board expected to OK revised Mocomanto renovation plans

The Southampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals is expected to approve a proposal to alter the Victorian estate Mocomanto, according to 27east. The move follows an approval earlier this month by the Board of Architectural Review and Historic Preservation that advanced the renovation plan. The dual decisions overwrite those by both bodies earlier this year about prior renovation plans to the home, which is also known as the “Jewel of Southampton.” Opponents of those plans sued the boards. In November, owners Ken and Ana Fox filed updated renovation plans with the boards that tried to answer the concerns of the opponents, who ultimately pulled their lawsuits. The ground floor will now include a west-facing porch, matching an existing wrap-around to the south and east. The roof will resemble a pyramid. The new plans, according to 27east, emphasize Mocomanto’s third floor spaces without making it appear towering. [27east]
