JERRY WISHNOW FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE
By court order, this 5,000-square-foot, million-dollar house overlooking Marblehead Harbor came tumbling down yesterday.
The owner battled with his neighbors for 18 years. After hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, he dropped his latest zoning appeal.
In the end, the giant claw of an oversize backhoe needed only hours to demolish the house.
The owner, a financial adviser in his 70s, is moving to a rental apartment in Salem.
