About the Home

Own a piece of New Canaan history, the Benedict-Eells-Thatcher home built circa 1724. This great American Homestead is the oldest standing home in New Canaan & is considered its first “mansion”. The current owners have lovingly restored this home, keeping true to its antiquity and enhancing it with modern day mechanicals. The 2011 addition maintains the home’s historical character & includes an inviting family room, a master bedroom suite with soaring ceilings, and walk in closets. Three additional bedrooms & two luxury bathrooms complete the spacious upper level. The home is situated on an outstanding 2 acre flat, grassy lot with an apple orchard, heated in-ground pool & heated barn with guest quarters for the ultimate country experience.
