The owner of a mansion in Rye has slapped its developer with a lawsuit claiming the home “was not constructed in a skillful and workmanlike manner” and “suffers from numerous defects,” the Westchester County Business Journal reported. The unidentified buyer bought the 7,976-square-foot home at 135 Highland Road from the developer for $5.4 million back in 2017, but discovered a number of leak-related problems soon after, according to a civil complaint filed on March 8 in Westchester Supreme Court. The mansion was supposed to be a “sensational home,” but allegedly ended up costing the buyer hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs, according to the complaint. The lawsuit, filed by a limited liability company that bought the property, seeks $720,000 from David Turiano and 135 Highland Road Associates. The outlet was unable to reach the developer for comment. [WBJ]
