The heart of the home is the updated kitchen with granite countertops which opens to a large family room addition with stone fireplace, french sliding doors to a rear yard/patio, and a separate dining area with built-in hutch/wet bar. The kitchen has a separate entryway with a covered porch/mudroom. The front entrance leads to a formal living room with coffered ceiling and fireplace, as well as a dining room with built-ins.

Enjoy all that coastal Fairfield has to offer - five public beaches on Long Island Sound, a vibrant downtown with restaurants and shopping, MetroNorth train to NYC, two universities, and award-winning public schools., Current owners expanded and renovated their home, adding dormers on second floor (96), master bedroom/bath over garage and kitchen extension (2001), and family room addition and patio (2005). They cleared the property in the rear yard, creating usable space and privacy between homes. Furnace is located in basement and three air handlers are in basement, crawl space, and garage. 4-zones.

Privacy of the back yard - great entertainment space. Convenience to town, beach and train, all within 1.5 miles - walkable if you choose. Friendly, family-oriented neighbors. The town offers a lot for all - beach, golf, shopping, dining - something is always going on. Warm home but can find private space away from family to read. The gardens are constantly blooming throughout the season with different views from each room. Sitting on the bench in the Body Spray Shower with Rain Head - great after a long day. The Family/Great Room is great to watch the snowfall while having a fire burn.
