A colonial carriage house in New Canaan that was once occupied by noted photographic illustrator Oscar “Ozzie” Sweet has hit the market with a reduced ask of $1.995 million, the Connecticut Post reported. Sweet, who died in 2013, made a name for himself as a sports photographer but also produced portraits of notable individuals like Albert Einstein, Jackie Robinson, President Dwight Eisenhower and Ingrid Bergman, according to the outlet. The 1908-built carriage house has a number of vintage features, including chestnut wide-plank flooring and exposed beams. The 1.6-acre property at 306 Carter Street also has an attached guest house, a solarium, a swimming pool and a cabana. Jaime Sneddon and Kendall Sneddon of The Sneddon Team/William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing, which had previously been marketed a year ago this month with a sale price of nearly $2.5 million. That was followed by an April 2018 price cut to almost $2.3 million. [CTPost]
