Cynthia Rowley, the notable designer who owns several properties on the East End, has plans to tear down and replace the structure at 69 Seaside Avenue in Montauk, reports the East Hampton Star.

Rowley purchased the home for $820,000. She also owns a neighboring home at 78 Seaside Avenue, which she purchased last year for $3 million.

She originally had these plans in 2011 when she purchased the property in foreclosure, but the East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals resisted. She has plans to build a larger house on the property.

However, the property has large pockets of wetlands, making it difficult to build while appealing to town code. There are environmental concerns associated with disrupting the wetlands. However, it might be possible for the environmental concerns specific to this property to be worked around.

A representative of Rowley suggested that during construction, the property at 78 Seaside Avenue could be used for large construction vehicles or other heavy equipment.

The main concern here is the potential damage that could be done to the wetlands, and ensuring that they remain as safely protected as possible.

Unfortunately, there are no photos available of the property.
