Hi Garry -
There are several homes in the greater New Canaan/Darien area that include a typical "in-law suite" with varying layout configurations that might accommodate your needs. There are also a few properties that have "guest cottages", but price may be an issue here. As a licensed real estate specialist who has lived on the New Canaan/Darien boarder for nearly 20 years, I would be happy to assist you in finding a property that suits your specific needs. There is no obligation, just let me know if you would like my help. Have a great day!
Cheers - Stephan

Yes, you can buy in a two family zone or a one family with an accessory apartment. Both will have separate entrances and separate living quarters. They do exist in Ct. Call me. I do have a house in mind,

Hello Gary - If there is any chance you would be willing to move 20 miles north of New Canaan, Trumbull has lots to offer as well.
This is a great home just on the market. Easily accessible from Merritt Pkwy and a great house on a cul-de-sac. You may have to copy and paste this into your browser. I would be happy to show you others in our community as well.$PUB/35/7335/pub/pub_9311639508.htm

The best bet is to buy a multifamily. Work with an agent and they'll help you at no cost to you directly.

Hi Gary,
In New Cannan, two kitchens = two dwellings, with some exceptions, such as homes with lovely guest cottages or pool houses and a few with the accessory apartment grandfathered on the property. New Canaan town codes are available on line. A couple of places are popping into my mind, but since I do not know your price point it is too soon to suggest. If you are NOT currently under a written agreement with another Realtor, I would be happy to help you and personally preview until I find THE ONE for mom & daughter! I can be reached 24/7 on my cell at 203-218-6664 or by email
By the way if other towns besides New Canaan, would be of interest, I know of a great deal more listings with accessory apartments.
Many Thanks,

Which house are you looking at? Any changes needed would have to be approved as well. Are you working with anyone? You should. Realtors can help with your search. Give specifics and price point and towns you are looking at and you will save a lot of time. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
