Significance

The Arnold House was completed in 1965. According to information on file at the New Canaan Historical Society, the architect was Victor Christ-Janer and the builder was Bill Frank. The L-shaped house was built with an attached two-car garage and a large wood deck. It appears that the original owners were Joyce and Robert Arnold, but this is unconfirmed since the assessor field cards for the 1960s are currently being conserved and are unavailable. In 1967, the Ostranders purchased the property and constructed a swimming pool.

In 1972, the house was purchased by Kenneth and Cary Robert. In 1979, Jawad S. and Havva S. Idriss acquired the property (later transferred to Havva S. Idriss in 1997). The wood deck was replaced in 1992. In 2002, Barbara M. Bellacosa purchased the property.
