New Canaan compound on 8 acres listed for nearly $6M

The property at 78 Pastures Lane in New Canaan used to be sold as three separate parcels, but all 8 acres are being offered for the first time in their entirety by the current owners. The property still holds the three subdivided parcels.

At the center of it all stands a slate-roofed stone manor designed by noteworthy local architect Calvin Kiessling. The home features 11 rooms with more than 8,500 square feet of living space sited on a quiet cul-de-sac formerly known as The Pastures, said listing agent Richard Higgins for The Higgins Group.

The main home sits on 3.38 acres and the compound features a synthetic turf tennis court and oversized swimming pool. One of the three subdivided lots is buildable.

Originally built in 1927, the main house offers five en-suite bedrooms and there are additional bedrooms in the coach house and over the garage. The home’s primary bedroom suite features a welcoming fireplace and a double-height ceiling with a large loft office. 

The home features original random-width hardwood floors, millwork and rebuilt counterweight windows. It also has multiple sets of French doors for indoor-outdoor entertaining options on five patios and grounds with flowering trees and perennials.

The grounds adjoin the 46-acre Silvermine Fowler Preserve and Kelly Upland Sanctuary, am open space with walking trails protected and managed by New Canaan Land Trust.

This house is on the market for $5,995,000.
