A historic home in Fairfield that was slated for demolition after a fire tore through it in 2017 is hitting the market after undergoing extensive repairs and renovations, the Connecticut Post reported. Trumbull-based real estate developer John Paul poured an “untold amount” of money into the 1816-built Sherman Parsonage at 480 Old Post Road to restore it after the fire and is now planning to sell it, according to the outlet. His company, John Paul Development, added a garage, several bedrooms, a finished basement and an attic to the original structure. “Nobody wanted to buy it and they’d listed it as a teardown,” Paul told the outlet. “We had to redo the whole house.” He said he hadn’t yet decided on a specific asking price. [CTPost]
