A demolition permit was issued March 10 for a 1926-bulit Colonial at 85 Carter St., a house that had been steeped in New Canaan tradition as the longtime, multi-generational Karl family home. The 1926-built home had been sitting on a 2.75-acre parcel in the 2-acre zone and has been razed, though no new building application for re-developing the parcel has appeared at the New Canaan Building Department. ***
The town on has issued a permit to demolish a house on a 2.27-acre Country Club Road property that saw new construction go up less than two years ago. UPDATE: A resident with knowledge of this property said the home that underwent demolition is a smaller Colonial located behind the new construction, visible from further east rather than head-on down the driveway. V&A Value Construction in May 2014 received a permit from the town to build a new, 7,690-square-foot home at 90 Country Club Road and, according to the Assessor’s database, that new 2-story Colonial had been the only structure on the property.
