Located in the heart of the University area, this quiet cul de sac Colonial is private, with close proximity to downtown Fairfield. Just 1.7 miles to the train, the home is situated at the end of a cul de sac, abutting a wooded area which will not be built on. In an area that doesn't always offer privacy AND convenience, this home has both! Not to mention the block parties! Upon first approach, you are met with an inviting front porch fit for rocking chairs. Once inside, the home greets you with a flex floorplan with many spaces that can be customized for your lifestyle. A spacious, fireplaced living room features triple front facing windows and leads to the dining room and kitchen area. The flow makes sense and offers an uncommon openness. The bright, white and light kitchen also boasts an eat-in area and entry to the more casual 4-season family room facing the private, fenced backyard. A full laundry room and updated partial bathroom finish off the main floor. Just a few steps up from the foyer is a versatile and sizable room with a wall of built-ins that can be utilized in many ways, such as sitting room, nursery, casual family room, dressing room for master, music room, playroom, etc. The master is its own quiet oasis with two walk-in closets and a large master bathroom finished in white cabinetry. The second level offers three additional guest rooms with large closets and a renovated full hallway bathroom. This home shows well and offers a truly functional layout.
