A Breath of Fresh Summer Air

There’s nothing quite like a summer night with friends and family outside on the back deck, patio, porch, or maybe even the pergola-covered front terrace! As the weather grows warmer, it’s time to start spending more quality time in the great outdoors, and what better way to do so than in the peaceful surroundings of your own yard?

From the rolling hills of Kent to the pristine neighborhoods of Fairfield County, these three very different Connecticut homes have one distinct thing in common—their inviting outdoor spaces. So, uncover that furniture, grab the burgers and head outside to where a long summer of fresh air and good times await.

2 Bald Hill Road in Kent, CT, immediately greets its residents and visitors with an updated cedar shingle shake exterior and quite the extensive pergola-covered front terrace. After undergoing an expert transformation about ten years ago, this 1932 Litchfield County home now offers all new, quality features with the finest amenities. In addition to the home’s top-notch interior, which includes a kitchen with marble counters and floors throughout, a spacious living room, sunroom, den and more, the unique property also offers an art studio on its grounds, which could easily function as guest quarters, an office or even a gym. Venture further outside on the property’s 3.9 private acres and soak up the sun in style on the residence’s charming front porch, which overlooks a local farm in town as well as beautiful, open meadows. A rear bluestone terrace located directly adjacent to the dining room is another great spot to take in the warm summer months outside.

Another outdoor oasis, 28 Deerfield Road is an extravagant lake house with 520 feet of direct waterfront and sweeping views. The residence, which boasts numerous amenities, is located on “The Pointe” in Barkwood Falls, a well-established neighborhood in the town of Brookfield, CT. Also boasting an extensive renovation, the Colonial residence takes full advantage of its prime location, offering large windows with views of its 2.5 acres of waterfront land. The same could be said for the home’s exterior, which is full of great amenities for a summer day of fun in the sun. Cool down in the luxurious infinity pool, take a swing at tennis on the property’s lighted tennis court and maybe even go for a boat ride right off the private dock—the opportunities are endless. Of course, numerous patios as well as an expansive deck complete the property, creating the perfect space to unwind after a long New England summer day at the lake.

It may feel like a paradise vacation right on the beach while enjoying the extraordinary features and amenities of this Nantucket-style home located at 242 Wahackme Road, just a half a mile from the village of New Canaan, CT. The residence sits majestically on 2.3 acres of pristinely cultivated grounds with gorgeous gardens and landscaping. Charming stone walls surround most of the property, adding to its private, yet inviting, comfortable outdoor atmosphere. Even while inside the meticulously crafted home, individuals can appreciate the property’s one-of-a-kind exterior amenities. In addition to various elegant rooms, including two family rooms, a library, master suite and more, the residence’s wonderful chef’s kitchen and sunny breakfast room overlook the adjacent resort-like pool, tempting anyone to go for a relaxing summertime swim. And it doesn’t end there—an equipped outdoor kitchen graces the property’s backyard patio with outdoor entertainment. So, heat up the grill and call some friends—every day is full of sunshine at this exquisite Fairfield County home.
