The house at 494 Washington St., on property that the town received Wellesley residents’ okay to buy about a year ago for $1.365 million, has been demolished. Nearby orthodontist Dr. Jeffrey Lowenstein shared this photo of what was left on Wednesday afternoon.
The town bought the property to improve chances of building a senior center, providing the parking and other space needed to avoid overflow parking to be located across the street. A reconfigured Planning Board has recently proven to be open to a revised plan for the proposed senior center.
