1889-Built ‘Red Cross Building’ on Main Street Under Contract with New Owner

The stately 1889-built structure at 51 Main St. in New Canaan, property of the Red Cross for more than 60 years, is under contract with a new owner. New Canaan resident and builder Arnold Karp of Karp Associates confirmed with NewCanaanite.com that he’s a member of a partnership that is hoping to close on the 2,600-square-foot building and .38-acre property next month. The new ownership group in the early going believes it will return the building to a residential use, though in any case the structure itself will be restored and preserved, Karp said. “We want it to continue as a character piece of New Canaan,” Karp said.

‘Concerns’ Among Homeowners as ‘Captain Jack LLC’ Now Owns More Than 10 Percent of Heritage Hill Condos

Though it remains unclear what designs, if any, a New Canaan man has on the Heritage Hill Road condominiums that he’s been buying up since early-2016 through a limited liability company, the homeowners association there appears to have taken steps to try and limit the resident’s ownership.

New Construction Planned for Valley Road

Town officials last week issued a permit to build a new, 7,600-square-foot home on Valley Road where an 1846-built antique about one-third that size stands. The 2-acre property at 867 Valley Road was purchased last June for $801,500, tax records show. Its new owner is a limited liability company whose principal is a Smith Ridge Road woman, according to records on file with the Connecticut Secretary of the State. The planned home, to be built by the New Canaan-based owner (the architect is New York City-based Lifeform), will have six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half-baths, four fireplaces and a three-bay attached garage. According to its original building permit application, filed in August, the home also will have a playroom in the attic, living room, dining room, study, kitchen and family room. Continue Reading →
