Town officials received an application to build a new home on a .37-acre lot on Harrison Avenue.

The 4,553-square-foot home at 80 Harrison Ave. will include five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and a half bath, according to a building permit application. It will include 11 rooms overall, the application said.

The new home will cost about $650,000 to build, the application said.

The town on Oct. 24 issued a permit to demolish the existing house, a 1952-built Cape, according to tax records.

The property had been purchased Sept. 21 for $675,000 from a family that owned it since 1970, tax records show.

The new owner is a limited liability company registered to a Wilton resident and builder. 

He is the contractor on the construction job, operating as Norwalk-based Anthony Tomas Builders. The same firm is listed as architect on the job.

  1. The builder is going to construct for $155 per square foot??? Pretty cheap.
    The house is too big for the lot. The design is mediocre at best.

  2. Builders get a break — why? don’t know — it’s a source of revenue
    that the town does not go after — you can’t build for $155 a sq ft —
    some play by the rules others put down as little as possible and wait to see if the building dept changes their numbers as done on the Mariomi construction —- permit fees have not gone up in 20 yrs — taxes go up every year — I think builders can afford to pay a little bit more
