New Canaan Home Renovation Wins the Fairfield County A-List Awards

New Canaan Idea House A-List Award Winner

Pound Ridge Painting Co. is excited to announce that the New Canaan, CT home remodeled by Karp Associates and CAH Architecture & Design tied for the winner of the A-List Awards Renovation Category. The A-List Awards is athome magazine’s competition for the area’s leading architecture and design projects, showcasing the area’s top building professionals.

Pound Ridge Painting is honored to have been part of the award-winning project and worked on the painting and wallpapering of the home, which received a complete remodel inside and out. 

Historic Home Remodel: Old Meets New

The original home, known as the Scofield House, was an 1840’s Greek Revival in poor condition. Karp Associates worked closely with the historical commission to thoughtfully restore it. The team saved the home’s historic facade and stayed true to the architectural style while renovating from the ground up.

While downsizing from 7,500 SF to 6,000 SF, the home design received plenty of natural light and an open kitchen despite the smaller footprint. The exterior and interior of the home were both reinvented while keeping the home’s charm. Some of the contemporary interior elements include modern amenities, smart home features, and a car lift in the three-car garage.

Featured on This Old House: Idea House 2019

If you think the home looks familiar, then you’re right. It’s been featured on TV and in magazines before.

This Old House chose the project for the Idea House 2019. The program’s Idea Houses inspire homeowners with new residential design ideas and innovative building materials.

The paint we used throughout the home was from Benjamin Moore. The exterior paint color was Decorator’s White for the main house, and Gunmetal Gray for the connector. While the interior paint used on most walls, ceilings, bases, and closet interiors was Chantilly Lace.

Please refer to The Idea House 2019 Resource Guide for other paints used throughout the home, along with details on the project including the floor plan, materials, contractors, and sponsors.

Preserving Historic Connecticut

The home’s history is unique dating back to the 1800s, but now its new story begins…

Karp Associates waited eight years to acquire the property out of foreclosure to ensure it remains a part of New Canaan’s Historic District. The historical commission praised them for setting a great example for the future of downtown development.

The Connecticut builder has completed several historical renovations along with new custom homes of all styles and sizes. Learn more about Karp Associates and view more project photos.
