Main Street

Project Brief

KARP had the pleasure to partner with ‘This Old House’ in building an innovative and technologically advanced home branded as the 2019 Idea House. Vaulted ceilings, numerous skylights, toe kick lighting and multiple eco-friendly features are part of what makes this home so charming. In this Greek-Revival home in New Canaan, Connecticut that dates back to 1840, we preserved part of its history including antique windows, exposed beams and original trim. From the outside, you’ll be drawn in by the classic design elements. Once inside, you’ll be refreshed by the modern elegance and technology that addresses all your needs.

The first floor offers generous space and functionality to entertain guests or just relax by the see-through fireplace in the great room. The cozy home office is adjacent to the front porch that is easily accessible through French doors. White oak herringbone floors lead you to the built-in bar, floating wine display and outdoor living space. The two kitchens allow for the formal kitchen to always be tidy while the cooking and cleaning occur in large workspace beyond.

Minimalist Kitchen

4 Main Street offers 5 bedrooms each with a walk-in closet and en-suite bath. The master bath has both a freestanding tub and a steam shower to provide the ultimate luxury. Step outside onto your deck from the master suite and warm up by the two-sided fireplace. Multiple outdoor spaces include a raised deck fully fitted out for family entertaining, front and side porches for relaxing and a shaded rear patio. Stone- veneer walls create textural interest on the exterior. The spacious 5,450 square feet home has an additional 2,436 square feet in the basement that can be built to suit.

The unique opportunity to partner with This Old House and to meet and work with numerous professionals gaining exposure to a variety of new innovative products was truly a pleasure for all of us at KARP. A great team creates a great product and we were privileged to be supported by so many talented individuals.
