A $1.5 million condominium in Bronxville was supposed to “afford [its] owners and residents an elegant, pampered lifestyle” but ended up having an unusable patio and defective courtyards, according to a new lawsuit. The buyer of the Villa BXV condo slapped its sponsor, Greenwich-based developer Gateway Kensington, with a lawsuit last month in Westchester Supreme Court claiming that water doesn’t drain off her patio and courtyard decks properly, and instead ends up harboring mosquitoes, mold, parasites and bacteria, the Westchester County Business Journal reported. The condo owner, Sharon Herstein, also claims that the 53-condo complex at 15 Kensington Road has a number of other defects. In a statement, Greenwich-based condo developer Fareri Associates, which owns Gateway Kensington, said it was “unfortunate that despite our best efforts, we have been unable to satisfy one of our buyers.” [WBJ]
