A majestic American Colonial built 115 years ago and later renovated by Wadia Associates has been taken off the market in New Canaan, Connecticut. The residence last sold in 2000 for $2.5 million and was recently listed for $9.75 million. The nearly 12,000 square foot residence is believed to have been designed by legendary architect, Stanford White, of the renowned firm of McKim, Mead & White. Blending classic design elements with modern upgrades, the residence includes a grand reception hall, new mahogany windows, numerous French doors leading to terraces and exceptional detailing throughout. Wadia Associates transformed an existing semi-circular open porch into a new panelled library. Additional upgrades in 2019 include a Smallbone center island marble kitchen, breakfast room and butler’s pantry, opening to an al fresco dining terrace, family room and exercise studio. The garden level includes a cabana with kitchen, infrared sauna, massage/yoga room and wine cellar. There are five bedrooms, five full and one partial bathroom. The residence sits on a 4 acre Jay Fain landscaped property. It was on the market for $9.75 million with Houlihan Lawrence and Halstead Real Estate.
