From The Journal News, Lower Hudson Valley, NY:
The lifestyle guru wants to build a 3,200-square-foot storage building on her 137-acre estate, near the property line with her neighbor, Ralph Lauren.
Stewart’s plans were to go before the town Planning Board on Tuesday night. She needs special approval because the 4-acre zoning in her neighborhood allows accessory buildings of no more than 2,500 square feet.
It was not clear whether Stewart herself planned to attend the public hearing, as she has for other applications on her property.
The 25-foot-high building would be set back well off Girdle Ridge Road along a private entrance to the celebrity’s estate. It was not clear what Stewart planned to store in the proposed structure.
The property is in a wooded and well-kept neighborhood south of downtown Katonah that is adorned with stone walls and rural landscapes. It is tucked between the John Jay Homestead National Landmark and the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts.
