OTM-NewcanaanThis open-concept residence was built in 2011 and is situated on the east side of New Canaan, about a mile from downtown shops. The homeowner happens to be a builder, and he constructed this property for himself, incorporating many sustainable touches throughout the nearly 4,000-square-foot interior. “All of the floors have hydroponic (hot water) radiant heat and the house utilizes geothermal and solar energy,” notes realtor William H. Taylor of Houlihan Lawrence. “Gutter water is also reclaimed in a tank for later irrigation use.”

The outdoor patio has a fireplace and stone bench for cozy gatherings. The red barn houses a three-car garage and a bedroom with an office upstairs. This area is connected to the main house via a second-level sundeck.

Numerous skylights also contribute to an open, airy atmosphere. Additionally, the house uses an electric geothermal heating and cooling system, which reduces greenhouse gases.
