Total Single-Family Home Sales in New Canaan Ticks Up in November as Median Sales Price Declines

The town saw a modest uptick in the number of single-family homes in November, while the median sales price fell by 21 percent on a year-over-year basis, according to new data released by the New Canaan Board of Realtors. The total number of homes that sold increased from 14 to 16, according to the data. Within that total, the number of homes that sold in the $3 million to $5 million range declined from four to two year-over-year. That difference, along with a decline in the $1 million to $2 million range from nine to five, likely contributed to a drop in the median sales price, from $1,727,000 in 2017 to $1,360,000 last month. Here’s a snapshot of single-family home sales year-over-year:

 

Board of Realtors President Janis Hennessy said in a statement that she “likes the 14 percent uptick in single family home sales.”

The number of single-family homes on the market held steady, at 296 in November compared to 299 in the year-ago month, according to the data.

New Construction Planned for Briscoe Road

The town last week received an application to build a new 4,688-square-foot home on Briscoe Road. The new five-bedroom home planned for 287 Briscoe Road will include three full bathrooms and a half-bath, as well as a kitchen, powder room, dining room, family room, den, mudroom and three-car garage, according to a building permit application filed Nov. 28. 

It will cost about $800,000 to build, according to the application. New Canaan-based Lanni Homes is the contractor on the job, it said. The architect is Bronxville, N.Y.-based Louis Campana Architects.

Orchard Drive Homeowner Seeks Permission To Build Second Story

The new owner of a 1947-built Orchard Drive home is seeking permission from the town to construct a second floor over part of the house. Though it does not predate the New Canaan Zoning Regulations, the 1,769-square-foot, four-bedroom Cape Cod-style home at 111 Orchard Drive encroaches on the front yard setback by mere inches in two places, according to a recently completed survey of the property, officials say. The .35-acre property, located in the “A Residential” zone, was purchased for $775,000 in October, tax records show. Under the New Canaan Zoning Regulations, a nonconforming structure in the zone may only be enlarged if it complies with the regs or gets a variance from the Zoning Board of Appeals (see page 158 here). The ZBA is scheduled to take up the application at its regular meeting Monday night.
