749 Commercial Street

Not long after this peculiarly shaped and oddly detailed 1,900-square-foot house was built in 1991, it was acquired by Donald J. Slater and his wife Valerie J. Slater. Don Slater had until recently been the president and chief executive officer of the S&A Corporation, which owned and ran the Steak & Ale and Bennigan’s restaurant chains. The Slaters sold the house in 2007 to John DeMatteis and — in a terrific shock to family and friends — were a double suicide two years later on their farm in Albemarle County, Virginia. (Lisa Provence, “No Option? Possible Death Pact Tied to Financial Losses,” The Hook, 4 June 2009.) DeMatteis sold the property in turn to Joel S. Osnoss, of the giant international accounting firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, and his wife, Grace Torres Osnoss.
