A Historic Home in New Canaan, Connecticut
8 Ferris Hill Road is the address of a historic home in New Canaan, Connecticut. A group of persons who just did not want the Hoyt-Burwell-Morse house to be torn down gathered over and over to figure out how it could be saved, and save it they did. With help from the builder who owned it they got the house listed on the CT Register of Historic Places, and then they purchased it, and immediately placed an Easement (restrictive covenant) on the Land Records that insures that the house will be the center of that property in years to come. The property will be sold to a new owner (or owners) who want to restore or expand it as a residence once again.
The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation holds the easement which protects the Hoyt-Burwell-Morse House from being torn down. The easement specifically protects the exterior of the house so that it will continue to look like a historic house. It allows for expansion of the house in the rear, the side not facing the road.
