Plan pulled for new home on Caroline Street

A new home won’t be built between the “Pink Lady” and “Sentry Box” on lower Caroline Street after all.

Local builder Alan Mendleson had been under contract to purchase the vacant lot at 141 Caroline St., with closing expected by the end of April. Fredericksburg’s Architectural Review Board had been scheduled to take up his plans for a new home on the lot Monday night.

But that item was pulled from the agenda after Mendleson worked out a deal last week to transfer the contract to longtime Sentry Box owners Charlie and Mary Wynn McDaniel. Mendleson said the McDaniels also agreed to cover the expenses he had incurred planning the new home.

Mendleson said in an email that he is glad that the matter is now resolved and that lower Caroline Street will remain the same as it is now. He said he wasn’t interested in building a house that neighbors didn’t want to be there.
