A historic home in New Canaan is getting a makeover made for television, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The house at 4 Main Street in New Canaan’s historic district will appear on “This Old House.” The 7,500-square-foot Greek Revival-style house “fell victim to years of neglect and deterioration” and became a popular hangout for raccoons until New Canaan developer Arnold Karp bought it for $810,000 in June, according to the outlet. “Plans are to save the historic facade, but downsize to 6,000 square feet and modernize with the latest and best building materials today,” states the website for the PBS show. [FBJ]
