Best: Large Acre Estate

4480 Congress
Greenfield Hill
4480 Congress Street
Offered at $6,750,000

This property is absolutely breathtaking, with numerous notable features…It was hard to pick just one “best” category! The pastoral estate encompasses 9.55 beautiful acres, with a sparkling in-ground pool, tennis court, pergolas, and multi-level stone patios. All this is surrounded by lush, professional landscaping, with the property extending into the woodlands of Greenfield Hill, bordered by 155 acres of Audubon Property. Talk about privacy!

Best: Beachfront Oasis

2081 Fairfield Beach Road
Offered at $1,830,000

With the interior boasting a bold modern flair, the beauty is truly in the simplicity of both the indoor and outdoor spaces of this home. Panoramic, unblemished views of Long Island Sound can be enjoyed from new Ipe decks and a sun-filled veranda room in the main residence. Creating the perfect complement, the boat house creates a tranquil setting beside Pine Creek, with a dining deck, boat dock and mooring. Beachside living doesn’t get much better than this!

Best: In-Town Estate

Fairfield Center
75 Deer Park Road
Offered at $1,849,000

Not to toot our own horn or anything (This home is one of our featured properties), but you will be hard-pressed to find a Fairfield Center gem like this on the market right now. Just minutes from downtown Fairfield, this beautiful southern colonial is tucked away at the end of a cul de sac in an enclave of just a few homes. This one will truly attract those who love to be outside just as much (if not more!) than inside. A stone porch and dining terrace line the front of the home just off of the kitchen perfect for enjoying lunch or dinner in some of the beautiful weather we’ve been having lately in Fairfield. The rear landscape is certainly worthly of the stately architecture, with levels of gardens, patios and terraces, and several decks (what a view from up there!). A lovely descent down stone steps will take you to a tennis court and outdoor sitting area. I could go on and on about this home, it is one of my favorites…Truly beautiful inside and out.

Best: Pool

Greenfield Hill
3051 Morehouse Highway
Offered at $1,749,000

Now I know there are those of you out there who simply don’t “do” pools, whether it be for the extra maintenance, very young children, or simply personal preference. However, a pool/spa done as well as this one is a quite the wonderful vista to have in your own back yard. This luxurious “pool-scape” is laden with pristine stonework and features a spa, gunite pool, and custom waterfall. Coupled with the privacy of this home’s tranquil Greenfield Hill setting, this backyard oasis is not one to overlook.

Best: Outdoor Entertaining/Dining

Greenfield Hill
260 Homestead Road
Offered at $2,850,000

Welcome to Homestead Acres! Maybe it’s due to the fact that this is a Master carpenter’s home, but the detail on this outdoor space is astounding. The rear of this home boasts an amazing entertaining space, with a expansive covered patio with broad columns and custom built-in woodwork…Not to mention the manicured lawns, pristine gunite pool, and stone pool deck. I can’t imagine ever using the Formal Dining Room with such a fantastic outdoor dining space!

Best: Park-Like Acres

Greenfield Hill
291 Redding Road
Offered at $1,499,000

If you are looking for life’s “greener pastures”, this property is worth looking at. I personally have always been one to appreciate the tranquility in an everlasting expanse of green, so I’d snatch this one up just for the view. The property just happens to come with a beautiful, well-appointed home. With fantastic views from almost every room, this home takes advantage of its pastoral setting through an abundance of well-placed windows.

Best: River View

33 aspetuck
Greenfield Hill
33 Aspetuck Falls
Offered at $1,199,000

Romantically sited on over 2 acres bordering the Aspetuck River, this home enjoys (in my opinion) the best kind of direct waterfront: a naturally flowing river with the soothing sights and sounds of a waterfall, privately tucked away in Greenfield Hill! This custom home was clearly well thought-out and beautifully designed, holding a naturally cohesive relationship with the land on which it sits. Scenic views can be enjoyed from the majority of rooms in this home, but by far the best are claimed by the rear screened porch and two decks (one with private access from the Master Bedroom Suite), where you can experience the natural surroundings with all 5 senses (except maybe taste!).

Best Overall

273 Harbor Road
Offered at $2,975,000
This property really has it all. As such, I had to include two photos (even though the photos do not do this breathtaking setting justice) to display just how unbelievable this backdrop is. The harbor, golf course, and long island sound are all included in the panorama. Oversized windows and multiple decks take advantage of the sunlight and scenic views, while the extensive stone patio below makes for both a fantastic entertainment area and a tranquil private setting. The edge of the in-ground gunite pool is just steps from a private dock on Mill River, a seamless transition from man-made luxury to natural beauty.
