Property Transfer: Local Man Now Owns Four of Five Contiguous Parcels on Husted Lane

A local man purchased an 1850-built Colonial home on a .19 acre lot on Husted Lane, according to a property transfer recorded Wednesday in the Town Clerk’s office, and now owns four of the five parcels on the short dead-end street. The four-bedroom home at 10 Husted Lane sold for $400,000 to Thomas Sanseverino as trustee, according to the transfer. 

He now is listed in New Canaan tax records as owner of numbers 8, 10, 12 and 14 Husted Lane. One remaining property, a 1,937-square-foot Cape on .22 acres at 16 Husted Lane (see map below), is owned by someone else. 

Husted Lane is a short dead-end road of eight residential structures—most of them multi-family dwellings—running off of the east side of Heritage Hill Road and curling in behind the back of Locust Avenue Lot. It’s in the B Residential zone. One year ago, First Selectman Kevin Moynihan indicated that the town had been eyeing the properties in an effort to expand that lot.
