There are certain home features that are simply timeless. A location within an hour’s distance of NYC. Beautiful gardens and outdoor amenities. Colonial architecture rooted in history. This premier Sasco Hill estate possesses these qualities and more on 4.5 private acres in Fairfield, Connecticut.
Hailed as an “unprecedented property” due to its proximity to the city and countless luxury lifestyle opportunities, the sophisticated compound has been meticulously renovated, with the newer portions of the property constructed from 2007-2011. Most of the design work was executed by award-winning architect Jack Frazen, with interiors by Forehand-Lake and construction by J.P. Ludwig Builders.
Distinctive craftsmanship and attention to detail beams throughout the home’s over 10,000 square feet. The interiors pay homage to the home’s Colonial architecture with exquisitely crafted traditional elements while managing to remain comfortable and modern for today’s families. A flowing, functional floorplan balances formal and informal spaces with ease as seven bedrooms, nine full baths and two half baths allow a large and growing family plenty of room. Meant to be a compound where one can live/work/play, the magnificent property boasts all of today’s most sought-after amenities. A guest house boasts a kitchen, living room, en-suite bedroom, fitness center and home office — perfect for long visits or perhaps an in-law arrangement. A perfect gentleman’s farm, the estate was seemingly tailor-made for entertaining.
The greenhouse can easily be transformed into a whimsical dining/wine tasting area since it lies adjacent to the stained white oak wine room. Thoughtfully designed outdoor spaces beckon one to enjoy a quiet life away from the city. A Gunite pool and spa invites relaxation — or play. The pool house, with indoor/outdoor kitchens and large sliding doors open to the patio, can become another beautiful space from which to entertain. Outdoor resort-style amenities such as a tennis court and bocce ball court invite play. The spectacular grounds, complete with cutting gardens, create a truly magical setting for outdoor living. A 6-bay detached garage completes the major list of amenities.
Ideally located one hour from NYC, this prized estate lies within minutes of a private golf course, Southport Village, Harbor, yacht club and beach. All of it — from the location to the resort amenities to the stunning historic design and craftsmanship — will always be sought-after in Sasco Hill…and well, anywhere.
