The cyan-trimmed house on the bay that belonged to Pulitzer Prize-winning Cutchogue composer Douglas Moore faced the wrecking ball Monday morning.

Workers began the demolition of the historic home a little before 11 a.m. The house, dubbed Salt Meadow, sits on the east side of Downs Creek on New Suffolk Avenue.

A demolition and building permit for a modern 8,766-square-foot home, designed by Barnes Coy Architects in Bridgehampton, was approved by the Southold Town building department on June 12. The new house is to have six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, spa and in-ground swimming pool. A wetlands permit for the project was approved by the Town Trustees last fall and 730 cubic yards of fill is to be brought in to regrade the property.
