New Construction Planned for Smith Ridge Lane

The town on May 28 received an application to build a 5,550-square-foot home on Smith Ridge Lane. 

The new five-bedroom house at 6 Smith Ridge Lane is to include four full bathrooms and two half-baths, according to a building permit application. 

It will include $842,000 to build, according to the application. 

The contractor and architect on the job is New Canaan-based Matthew R Dougherty Architect LLC, the application said. The two-acre property, located in the four-acre zone, was acquired six years ago for $1,685,000, tax records show. The town in November 2016 had issued a demolition permit for the 1953-built Colonial that had stood there, according to building records.

New Construction Planned for Raymond Street, Hillcrest Road

About one year after neighbors voiced concerns for a proposed two-family home on a .36-acre lot, the New Canaan Building Department on May 17 received an application to build a new 4,800-square-foot single-family dwelling on the property. The proposed five-bedroom house at 27 Raymond St. would include six full bathrooms, one half-bath and a finished attic and basement, according to the building permit application. It will cost about $500,000 to build, the application said. The contractor on the job is Norwalk-based Marcin Pyda, one of the principals of the ownership group, Raymond LLC.

New Construction Planned for Locust Avenue

The New Canaan Building Department on April 5 received an application to construct a new single-family home on a long-vacant .27-acre lot near the downtown. The proposed 2,500-square-foot home at 102 Locust Ave. would include three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a half-bath, according to the application. It would cost about $400,000 to build, the application said. The owner of the lot, a limited liability company whose principals live in Rye, N.Y., had purchased the property for $520,000 in June 2013 and received a demolition permit for the existing structure a few months later. 

Earlier this year, the LLC put in for a variance to build a two-family home on the lot, but that application never came before the Zoning Board of Appeals. 

The architect on the new construction job is Wilton-based Dennis Peters, the contractor Weston-based MEGEI LLC, the application said.

New Construction Planned for West Road

The town on March 18 received an application to build a new 5,344-square-foot home on West Road. The house at 534 West Road is to include 5,344 square feet of living space, including five bedrooms and full bathrooms and two half-baths, according to the building permit application. Tax and building records show that the four-acre property had been purchased in May 2017 for $1,950,000 and that multiple permits have been obtained since then, including a permit issued last summer to renovate part of an existing house for an estimated $450,000. 

A full demolition permit had been obtained in June 2018, records show. The construction planned now is to cost about $1.4 million, according to the application. 

The contractor on the job is Altamura Homes of Greenwich and the architect is Robert Dean Architects of New Canaan, the application said.
