Driving Directions

As a commercial/residential property with a historic presence, private garden, and an in-town location near the New Canaan town center and train station, 63 Park Street has many options for a business looking for a distinctive location with elegant touches both historic and modern. This 1836 Greek Revival house has a historic exterior, but the interiors are decidedly modern with a two-story luminous loft-like architect's atelier and living quarters above. In addition, a 625 sq. ft. workshop occupies the carriage barn's second floor. The spacious office can accommodate a business with up to eight employees; the residential apartment can be rented out or can serve as a lovely pied-à-terre for company use. Though it is nestled in the center of New Canaan, the house and office have privacy and shade thanks to a contemporary garden, included in the Smithsonian's Archives for American Gardens, and a grove of mature evergreen trees. This property was once owned by publishing legend Max Perkins--editor to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Marjorie Rawlings, and Thomas Wolfe-and is on the National Register of Historic Places. This is a resource unlike any other in the New York area and an unusual opportunity for a business looking for a unique presence in the world.

  • Remarks addendumIts much-published garden is included in the Smithsonian's Archives for American Gardens. Though the house and garden offer privacy, the location is one block from the New Canaan train station with its rush-hour through trains to Grand Central Station. In this beautifully restored, 1836 Greek Revival house once owned by publishing legend Maxwell Perkins--editor to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings--is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its much-published garden is included in the Smithsonian's Archives for American Gardens. Though the house and garden offer privacy, the location is one block from the New Canaan train station with its rush-hour through trains to Grand Central Station. Inside, a spare modern aesthetic and a large 2-story open space are perfect for a home office or a dramatic gallery for painting and sculpture. Upstairs, the living quarters have the sophistication of a Manhattan apartment. On the lower level, side doors open onto a sheltered garden with pocket views of historic-district buildings. Throughout the house are bright spaces and a synthesis of the best of 19th and 20th-century design.
