Real Housewives’ couple receive OK to tear down mansion

The “Real Housewives of Miami” couple have won the first battle in their effort to tear down their mansion on Star Island.

Reality TV show stars Lisa and Leonard Hochstein, received the OK to tear down their historic home built in 1925 by Florida’s first registered architect, Walter Degarmo.

Preservationists have fought to keep the house from being demolished, saying the house should be refurbished, not leveled, because of its historic and architectural significance to South Florida.

Even though the demolition was approved, the Miami Design Preservation League can still appeal it.
