Framed: 15 Richmond Hill in Downtown New Canaan

I'm building a new house in downtown New Canaan. It's an energy-efficient 5 bedroom Colonial of 3700 ft on a small lot downtown. With blown-in insulation and geothermal heating/air conditioning it will cost under $400/mo to operate. It will take 7 months to build and will be complete before Labor Day 2013. Check back periodically for more pictures or see the builders site at


For Sale: 618 Weed Street, new Construction on One Acre Close to Town in New Canaan

A rare combination of privacy and acreage that is close to town and 5 minutes from the Merritt Parkway; this new 5 bedroom colonial is on one acre at the top of Richmond Hill.  The fairly flat and slightly rolling backyard faces south and west. The land will support a poolsite and there are no wetlands. Special features include ICYNENE insulation and geothermal heating and cooling which cuts fuel costs in half. The gourmet kitchen features professional appliances by Wolf and Subzero, a 4'x 8' granite island, custom built-ins in library, family room,  and mud room.

This is the entrance to 618 Weed Street. It will be widened to two lanes and end in a planted cul de sac with two private driveways at the end. Below is an artists rendering of what it will look like when completed.
