Yeshiva bids in Rockland

Times Herald-Record:

Woodbury - A developer and a Rockland County yeshiva have each offered $3 million for a historic, 7,100-square-foot mansion that served briefly as a luxury bed and breakfast, according to the seller's real estate agent.
One bidder for the Roselawn Inn has a proposed sale contract that will likely be signed this week, if it hasn't been signed already, Meredith Lee said. She wouldn't say which suitor had the contract.
Developers, home buyers and three Rockland yeshivas, or Jewish schools, have all expressed interest in the graceful, 15-room structure - purportedly built in 1798 - and its 17-acre grounds off Roselawn Road and Route 105 in semi-rural Woodbury.
"The response to this property has been overwhelming," said Lee, who works for Keller Williams Elite Properties, a new branch of Keller Williams dealing exclusively with luxury homes....

If it were to become a yeshiva, it would be the fourth outside of Kiryas Joel in southern Orange County. In September, a Hasidic group from Westchester County bought the Inn at Chester for $3 million and announced plans to open a yeshiva for 110 students.
