Scott M. Volpe and Connecticut Residential: 40 Years and Counting

Second generation developer Scott Volpe and his company Connecticut Residential have been building custom homes and neighborhoods for almost 40 years.  Scott has over 30 years experience in the field and 15 years as President and owner of CR.  He and his team of handpicked craftsmen, tradesmen, and contractors have developed 7 residential projects comprised of over 120 custom single family homes along with countless individual site lots and projects including commercial additions, renovations and flips.  

Having worked personally on hundreds of home sites before the age of 25 Scott has a unique background of experiences not common among builders today.  This history allows him to recognize, attract and retain the best talent available.  “We understand what it takes to offer high quality at competitive prices and work to continually refine our systems, styles, trends, and offerings every year”, said Scott.  The result is a product offering quality you can feel, earned one home at a time, and delivered at the right price.  CR has won multiple HOBI awards in CT both for single family custom homes as well as entire residential projects.  All homes are high performance and Energy Star Certified.  Scott earned a BS from the UCONN School of Business with a concentration in Economics and has been a licensed Realtor for almost 20 years.

We’re Passionate About What We Do For You

While we do this for a living, we are not just in it for the money.  In keeping with our balanced approach to life we want to work hard, play hard, and have fun with all that we do. Floor planning & land planning is in our DNA and at the core of what we do everyday.  This creates a work environment dedicated to building what’s right for each home and parcel of land. It’s not a burden, it’s a puzzle!

We built a house with Scott Volpe in 2015 and highly recommend using Scott if you are thinking of building a new home.  His high quality, extras, trim work, energy savings and stress free process are amazing. As a builder Scott is unmatched in quality and value.
