New Construction Planned for Bickford Lane 

The town on Oct. 7 received an application to build a new two-story home on a Bickford Lane parcel where a 1963-built ranch-style house had stood. The new construction planned for 36 Bickford Lane will include four bedrooms and seven bathrooms in a 3,984-square-foot living space on the first and second floors, with a 1,557-square-foot finished basement, according to the building permit application. 

The contractor on the job will be Paul Hertz of Darien and the architect is La Vigra Associates of Ridgefield, the application said. The house will cost about $1,095,600 to build, it said. The property was purchased one year ago for $724,900, tax records show.

Data: New Canaan Home Sales More Than Double in September

Sales of single-family homes in New Canaan more than doubled year-over-year in September, according to new data. New Canaan home sales increased from 11 in September 2018 to 24 last month, a rise of 118%, according to the New Canaan Board of Realtors. 

The organization’s president, Janis Hennessy, said, “Some bright spots show themselves in the market data with single-family home sales in New Canaan up well over 100% in September 2019 over the same period last year. Inventory is down by 66 units over the same period. I like those trends.”

Much of the difference in sales came in the $1-million-and-under range, from zero one year ago to eight last month. Here’s a table tracking the data:

 

Sales of condominiums also increased from one last September to three this year, the data show.
