FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Having a summer beach house at the shore is great, but for homeowners in Fairfield's close-knit "Beach" neighborhood, every day is vacation when your backyard is in the sand.
"You don’t realize you’re in Connecticut," said Brian Clarke, Jr., brokerage manager at William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty in Southport, of the waterfront community. "You’re looking out at the water and you’re in your own oasis." One of Fairfield County's most sought-after neighborhoods, the Fairfield Beach can be a difficult area to buy into. However, Clarke's Southport brokerage is offering buyers the chance to do so, currently listing 939/944 Fairfield Beach Rd. for just over $2 million.
Tucked away on a .22 acre lot, the listing features two separate buildings: a main house and a detached cottage. The larger home offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms, while the private cottage contains another two bedrooms, a bathroom and a two-car garage. Perfect for sand and salt lovers, both buildings boast views of Pennfield Reef Lighthouse, Long Island's North Shore and point east. "The views from every angle in the house are breathtaking," said Clarke. "The craftsmanship and attention to detail throughout the home is done to the nines, and walking in the front door, the straight shot view is incredible."
In the summer months, the back deck and beach area are perfect for fishing, paddle boarding, entertaining or just soaking up the sun. In cooler months, the floor-to-ceiling windows and large fireplace create a cozy, seaside ambiance. "This could be a second home, but the neighborhood tends to be mostly year-round residents," said Clarke. A five minute drive to I-95 and the Fairfield Metro North station, the house's proximity makes it as livable as it is luxurious.
"You’re buying a daily vacation," said Clarke of the house which was built in 1998. "You’re purchasing a little peace of heaven."
