The town on Oct. 19 issued a permit to build a new 5,700-square-foot home on Brushy Ridge Road where a 1953 Cape about half that size had stood.
The new house planned for 188 Brushy Ridge Road would include five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half-baths and three-bay garage with an unfinished basement and attic, according to building plans.
The 1.11-acre property had been purchased for $1,050,000 in November 2017, according to tax records.
The new owner is a limited liability company whose principal is a New Canaan man with the same address as the contractor, according to records on file with the Connecticut Secretary of the State.
A demolition permit for the Cape had been issued Feb. 20.
