William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Updated Colonial Home Designed by Award-Winning New Construction and Renovation Team


Amenity-rich residence designed by the highly acclaimed building firm, Gardiner Larson Homes

New Canaan, Conn. – November 10, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a completely renovated Colonial home, originally constructed in 1998 by premier residential design firm Gardiner Larson Homes. The dramatic modernist residence, which is located in the town of New Canaan, Conn., is represented by New Canaan agents Carol Hollyday and Rita Kirby, and offered at $7,995,000.

Gardiner and Larson Homes has been known for its fine house design and construction for over 20 years. The award-winning team includes the design expertise of Judith Larson, who has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, and Bill Gardiner, a builder of quality homes for over two decades. Although most of their work is primarily done in Connecticut, homes constructed and designed by the company can also be found in Kiawah Island, Stratton Mountain and the Hamptons.

The team’s work is clearly evident in the architectural design and quality of this stone and shingle-style Colonial residence, which contains six bedrooms, seven full baths and two half baths, with a total of 13,526 square feet of space. Glamorous new interiors, updated approximately three years ago by Done White of Connecticut Homes, grace each room with a distinct sophistication and style. Features and amenities include detailed millwork, ten-foot ceilings, walls of windows and glass, a mahogany library and more. Seven fireplaces can be found throughout, one of which is located in the home’s family room, an inviting space that offers a bar and other appealing features. A fully equipped kitchen and butler’s pantry as well as luxurious baths add even more to the home’s lavish appeal. The lower level contains other amenities including a gym and sleek, state-of-the-art wine cellar, to name a few.

“The estate has every cutting-edge amenity imaginable,” said Hollyday. “Any avid wine collector will fall in love with the outstanding wine cellar offered here, which is just one of countless premier features present in the home. The residence undoubtedly exudes absolute perfection both inside and out.”

“A home of true quality, this superb estate was constructed and designed by the best,” added Kirby. “I am honored to be co-listing such a gorgeous piece of architectural work, and look forward to seeing what the residential future holds for this fabulous New Canaan residence.”

Specimen gardens with expansive terraces that have been featured in regional garden tours as well as various publications complete the four-acre property.
