Prutting & Company has sent us photos of the 173 Park Street Residence project, an impressive cedar-sided and zinc-clad contemporary townhouse they built in 2010.

Designed by Greenwich-based studio Joeb Moore + Partners, this 5,300 square foot three-level home is located in New Canaan, town in Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States.

The home features four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half-baths and a cool 750 square-foot roof terrace accessible by elevator with a hot pool and a cold pool!

The house, with its solar-assisted electric power and hot-water heater, showcases elegant use of green technology, earning itself a LEED Silver Certification.

Originally listed at $4.95 million in late 2009, the home is still on sale, now offered at $3.95 million.

173 Park Street Residence by Prutting & Company:

Philosophy and Goals
The goal of the townhouse is to construct a “state of the art” building, incorporating contemporary and “green” technologies and products directed by world-class design.  By incorporating these features with a prime location in the heart of downtown New Canaan, this project caters to the luxury home consumer valuing in-town convenience with modern amenities and features.

Specialties
This project has a modern, flexible floor plan with all the amenities.  There is a large, multifunctional lower level with a zoned apartment.  Amenities include three fireplaces, central vacuum and high-performance appliances, and a spa master bath including a steam sauna and a whirlpool.  This project also has an extensive roof top lifestyle program including an exterior deck with a hot tub, cookout center and a fireplace.  There is an elevator encouraging this program which travels from the lower level to roof top.

Construction
The building is supported by a concrete foundation with a structural steel frame and poured concrete decks.  There is also interior steel and engineered lumber wall framing.  The modern geometric exterior is achieved by zinc panels and cedar wood wall cladding and detailing.

Mechanical
The townhouse achieved LEED Silver certification by its use of several “green” technologies including thermal massing radiant floors with central air conditioning.  The use of photovoltaics supplements electric and solar-heated water.  Water is also recycled through a roof water collection system and sprinkler system.  Lutron lighting control systems and wiring for motorized window treatments create a comfortable living environment in addition to the alarm system and stereo system incorporated into the project.

Windows & Doors
Natural lighting is also factored into the project as a means of being ecologically responsible.  High performance glazing is used with European Lift & Slide door unites and casement windows.  Also incorporated into the project are a roof sky window, custom 2” interior doors, and high grade hardware.

Millwork & Finishes
The interior detailing and crisp joinery gives a clean, modern look using natural finished Sycamore Millwork, European ceramic/porcelain tiles, Caesarstone countertops, and European oak engineered wood flooring.

Landscape
Central to creating a specialty home is the well designed garden and hardscape plan, with custom designed decks, patios, water features, and a fountain.

Summary
This 5,300 square foot home with a cost of $4 million is a smashing, elegant 21st century building with intelligent and well-conceived design.”
