Meet the Builder Behind New Canaan’s “Quail Hollow”

Three out of four masterfully built new construction homes await their lucky future owners in New Canaan’s latest high-end, luxury development, built by HOBI award-winning builder Reed Whipple of Heritage Home Construction. Known as “Quail Hollow,” the residential area provides a quiet neighborhood and convenient location, just minutes from downtown. On Sunday, June 12th from 12-2 PM, a unique opportunity to meet Whipple himself while touring the community’s three remaining homes, which are represented by New Canaan agent Rachel Walsh and offered from $2,195,000 to $2,225,000, will be available to the public. The builder behind the masterful construction will discuss the overall development project and work involved in creating each extraordinary residence for sale.



Heritage Home Construction was founded over 30 years ago by Whipple, providing homeowners with quality work that consistently exceeds all expectations. Based in Ridgefield, Conn., Whipple and his reputable local firm have built over 200 homes, many of which are subdivisions. Specifically recognized for his work on new construction residences, Whipple is also a recipient of the highly acclaimed HOBI award for this category—a not unexpected accomplishment given the impressive quality of his work at Quail Hollow. Much of Whipple’s expertise was acquired under the mentorship of his father, Fred Whipple. From digging and tarring foundations to completing framing, roofing and siding, Whipple mastered one skill after another, leading him to eventually build a business of his own.

Currently under construction, the spacious, open concept Colonial-style homes now for sale can conveniently still be customized to suit their future buyers’ wants and needs. All properties have ample acreage and a pool site option, as well as the ability to finish their lower levels for additional square footage. The design of the homes themselves display gorgeous architectural details both inside and out including extensive moldings and high ceilings, which forge a sunny, brilliant appeal. The kitchens and bathrooms are all top-of-the-line, and feature stone counters and finishes.



“Each residence is built to be extremely low-maintenance with top quality products that last through the years,” said Walsh. “As a result, the overall operating expenses will be much lower than other new construction homes due to the high-efficiency and energy-efficient materials used.”

During the June 12th “Meet the Builder” event, individuals will have the chance to see these matchless qualities come to life, and ask any questions they may have about their construction to the creator himself, Mr. Reed Whipple.

“Allowing interested buyers to meet the builder is a great way to provide an inside look at the home, while also offering an enticing incentive to stop by,” said Walsh, who often finds distinctive ways to present individuals with more than just your typical open house. In the past she’s invited a popular coffee and food truck to serve breakfast to attendees, held raffles, had cocktail parties, organized designer showcases and hosted vendor-driven holiday parties. “Whatever it takes,” said Walsh.

“Quail Hollow is an exceptional place to live,” added Walsh. “The sub-division is a lovely, private neighborhood and is suitable for any type of resident—young families, down-sizers, snow-birds, couples—the list goes on. I want everyone to fully see and experience its offerings, and I know Sunday’s one-of-a-kind event will succeed in doing just this.”
