RISMEDIA, October 9, 2009—This stunning Farmhouse located in one of Fairfield, Conn.’s most sought after areas of Greenfield Hill sits on over 2 acres of manicured grounds with sprawling lawns. Upon arrival, you are greeted by a Belgium Block circular driveway entrance, classic New England stone walls, a mahogany front porch and 6,000+/- square foot of luxurious living space, rich in craftsmanship and detail throughout.
The oversized foyer is open to the 2nd floor stairway and hall. This home features deep base and crown moulding, raised paneling and wainscoting, 3 sizes of oak planking on the first floor and special wall finishes. There are 6+ bedrooms, 5 full and 1 half baths and a 3 room suite. There are 2 secondary staircases for easy access throughout the house- one that leads to the 2nd floor is near the kitchen and side entrance for total convenience.
The state of the art kitchen is luxurious while comfortable and offers the latest amenities. Enjoy the abundant work space with 2 working islands, 2 ovens and separate warming drawer along with a Viking gas cooktop, 2 Gaggeneau dishwashers and a wine cooler. Behind the kitchen is the sunken family room that is flanked by French doors overlooking the patio and pool area.
The library finished in wood paneling is located on the first floor just off the side entrance with a gas fireplace. The side entrance to the home doubles as a mudroom with ceramic tile flooring and a huge walk-in closet. A full bathroom is situated near the mudroom and boasts a designer bowl sink and an antique vanity that has been converted to a sink base.
The master suite has a separate sitting room, enormous walk-in closet and generous master bath with a double vanity, steam shower and private commode room. The floor and shower are finished in tumbled marble and the Jacuzzi tub is flanked by windows. Two of the additional bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom, while the fourth bedroom has a full bath which connects to the main hall. The 3 room Au Pair Suite is located at the end of the hallway with its own staircase leading to the first floor. The large 2nd floor laundry room has tons of built-in cabinets and tile flooring. The 3rd level of the house has a huge room with substantial custom built-in storage areas.
The outdoor living is just as spectacular as the indoor space. A covered porch is off the living room for shade or rainy days. The Brussels block patio is enormous and staged with 3 different gathering areas, and still room for more. The stone walls separate the patio from the built-in pool which is perfect for summer parties and holidays. The property is fenced in on all sides and includes lawn areas that are vast and private.
