William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Beachfront Home Used as Filming Site for Marisa Tomei Movie


Madison, Conn. – October 6, 2014 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyannounced today that the firm has listed a waterfront estate that served as a filming site for the 2000 American movie “Happy Accidents,” starring Maria Tomei and Vincent D’Onofrio. The property is located in Buffalo Bay, a private enclave of seven large turn of the century summer cottages in Madison, Conn.  Essex agent team Jennifer and Jane Associates, comprising Jennifer Caulfield and Jane Macy Pfeffer, have the listing, which is offered at $4,495,000.

“Happy Accidents” is a romantic comedy that revolves around New Yorker Ruby Weaver, a woman of many failed relationships, and Sam Deed, a man who claims to be from the year 2470.

Direct waterfront views and beachfront access encompass this 5,582 square-foot home.  Constructed in 1968, the Colonial residence offers 1.13 acres of property including a separate guest house, in-ground pool, and private beach.  In its three levels, residents will find numerous amenities and features including 8 bedrooms, 6.1 full baths, a formal living room, four fireplaces, an eat-in kitchen with center island, a wetbar, library, as well as a luxurious master bedroom suite.  The property also offers a hot tub and access to a tennis court, in addition to an expansive deck and greenhouse room, all with views of the Long Island Sound.

“This home is perfect for anyone seeking a beach lifestyle in a private, tight-knit community,” said Caulfield.  “Its location and accommodations are nothing short of paradise.”

Buffalo Bay is a private waterfront neighborhood reminiscent of the romantic seaside communities of yesteryear.  Seven special homes constructed in the early to mid 1900s comprise this established area of Madison, 113 Buffalo Bay being one of the most recently built residences.

“We are excited to be representing such a special listing,” said Pfeffer.  “Not only does this home offer a great history and community, but its endless waterfront views and overall atmosphere are extremely difficult to beat.”
