New Construction Planned for West Hills Road, Forest Street

The town on April 4 received an application to build a 7,827-square-foot home on West Hills Road.

This new 7,827-square-foot house is planned for 85 West Hills Road.

The new house at 85 West Hills Road will include five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half-baths, according to a building permit application. It will include a three-car garage and pool house.

It will cost about $2 million to build and the contractor on the job is Greenwich-based Premier Home Builders LLC, the application said. The architect is Neil Hauck Architects LLC of Darien, it said.

The 2.68-acre property (in the 2-acre zone) had been purchased for $1.5 million in October, tax records show.

The managing partner of the ownership company, 85 West Hills Road LLC, is a Greenwich man, according to records on file with the Connecticut Secretary of the State.

A demolition permit was issued in January for the 1951-built ranch-style house that had stood on the property.
