Mansion demolition order has Truro residents debating
House changes vista that Edward Hopper painted
The biggest house in Truro, a $10 million glass-and-concrete mansion only recently completed, has been ordered demolished by the town. The home, on a ridge overlooking Cape Cod Bay, obscures part of the famed Hopper Landscape where the artist painted for decades. The reason for the demolition: The home does not qualify as an allowed “alteration’’ to a small home that sits a good distance away on the property owned by a Boca Raton widow.
