Remarkable water views, the ocean breeze, and ultimate privacy define Fairfield County’s most coveted location: Sasco Point.
Amid this idyllic setting, Raney has listed an architectural masterpiece in the form of an award-winning, custom modern-day Queen Anne Victorian. Renowned architect Jack Franzen designed the imposing residence of over 15,000 square feet and was inspired by the historic elegance of the landmark Vanderbilt Shelburne Farms estate.
Franzen’s architecture creates an intimate feeling among the multitude of formal and informal spaces. A total of nine bedrooms, 12 full baths, two half baths, and an 8-car garage provides enough space for family and friends. Over four gracious levels with elevator access deliver all of the charm and warmth one would expect from an Inn.
The location is just as captivating as the architecture. Situated on a private lane overlooking Long Island Sound, the estate is within walking distance of Sasco beach, a short drive to Southport Village, and 50 miles from New York City. Magnificent water views are one of its most defining characteristics. Veranda access from all of the south-facing rooms, along with a sweeping terrace and pool enjoys the breathtaking views and contributes to a sophisticated indoor/outdoor atmosphere perfect for entertaining. Meanwhile, “the home’s primary suite is unmatched,” Raney reveals. “There are two full baths, a sitting room, immense closet space, an expansive deck, and gorgeous views.”
As one might expect, the highest quality luxury materials were used throughout the home to recreate the grandeur of Vanderbilt Shelburne Farms: mahogany true divided light windows, quarter-sawn oak double stairway, beautiful arches, paneling, floors, and more.
