Property for sale in historic neighborhood of Fairfield
Fairfield, Conn. – May 11, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyannounced today that the firm has listed an amenity-filled classic Colonial estate located in the Greenfield Hill neighborhood of Fairfield, Conn. Southport agent Ellen Fusco of the agent team Foran Fusco Properties has the listing, which is offered at $2,295,000.
The Greenfield Hill community is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is most locally known for its Dogwood Festival, which annually celebrates the area’s variety of native trees. Greenfield Hill Congregational Church, located on the historic town Green, is perhaps the neighborhood’s most notable landmark, where former Yale University president Timothy Dwight IV served as pastor for many years. In addition, this rural section of Fairfield County contains two-acre minimum property zoning, as well as large expanses of vegetation and trees.
The residence, which is surrounded by 2.28 acres of sweeping grounds and open space, offers 6,500 square feet of well maintained, updated architectural features and amenities. The five- bedroom Colonial home boasts a seamless flow and light-filled, spacious atmosphere. Extensive windows and a stone fireplace can be found in the residence’s family room, which opens to a chef’s kitchen complete with top-notch appliances and an eat-in area, all overlooking the private grounds. The second level contains a luxurious master suite with a sitting room, fireplace and large walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms are located on the second floor, all with updated bathrooms, while the home’s fifth bedroom can be found on the third level. Out of these spaces, perhaps the most inviting and relaxing place to spend time is the second-floor bonus room, which contains a wet bar.
The residence’s grounds feature a gunite pool, pergola, patio, mahogany deck, stone walls, specimen gardens, as well as a well-maintained landscape with lighting. The property also boasts a pool house with a full kitchen, dressing room and full bath.
“This property offers so much—simply beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces in a totally private setting,” said Fusco. “In addition to its unbeatable outdoor amenities, the home’s location in Greenfield Hill is ideal, within walking distance of numerous community events and offerings including Fairfield’s famous Dogwood Festival, as well as Greenfield Farm, where delicious local produce is grown. I look forward to finding the perfect future homeowner for this exquisite, private paradise in Fairfield.”
