Historic preservationists opposed Moss' first request for demolition in 2010. However, after further inspection last month Maxine Lutz, interim director of the Historic Beaufort Foundation, said her organization would no longer oppose it because the house lacked historical significance.

Moss bought the house in 2007 for $206,000 as part of a group called Beaufort Six. He plans to build several two-story buildings, with commercial space on the first floors and apartments on the second floors.
