‘It’s an Iconic Place’: Bank Clears Sale of Deteriorating Antique Home on God’s Acre

A long-vacant, prominent antique home on God’s Acre is poised after years of holdups to transfer to a new owner, officials say. The ca. 1780-built Greek Revival at 4 Main St., tied up for more than six years in foreclosure proceedings, is expected to be transferred this month to Arnold Karp, according to Paul Stone, chief operating officer at New Canaan building firm Karp Associates. “It’s an iconic place,” Stone said of the home, located in New Canaan’s Historic District, next to St. Michael’s Lutheran Church.
