Prepare to fall in love! Just a mile from vibrant downtown Fairfield and a stroll from award-winning schools, find this newly redesigned 4-bedroom home tucked away on a quiet side street. Hidden in plain sight, this is a ride-bikes-on-the-street kind of neighborhood lined with beautiful trees and well-maintained homes. 281 Taunton is much more than meets the eye! Inside find a spacious main level layout with gleaming hardwood floors throughout. The Dining Room opens to an updated Kitchen with shaker-style cabinetry, breakfast bar, granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Perfect for entertaining or cuddling up on the couch, the front-to-back Living Room and Family Room both feature wood burning fireplaces. The first floor bedroom/den offers access to a beautifully updated full bathroom, with a private entrance (ask us how this could make a PERFECT setup for teens or in-laws!). As Summer turns to Autumn, the rear of this property is to die for! The expansive deck, architectural gazebo, and sprawling rear lawn set the stage for al fresco dining, bonfires or sunset cocktails. At bedtime, you'll love the Master Suite with walk-in closet and newly updated full bathroom, featuring bright white finishes, modern bathtub, shower, and double vanity. Two additional bedrooms offer generous closet space and share access to the hall bathroom, also updated with clean modern fixtures. The lower level houses plenty of storage space and NEW HVAC! Perfect, isn't it? Don't miss out!
