At the end of a secluded cul-de-sac just past the tree-lined driveway and stone pillar entrance you’ll find a meticulously maintained English-inspired Colonial. Custom built by the homeowner himself, the attention to detail is unparalleled! This home provides a comfortable, private escape from downtown Fairfield yet only a few minutes from all the amenities one would need. The design comes complete with charming details such as a coffered ceiling, detailed crown molding, paneled walls, gleaming hardwood floors, and interior and exterior French doors. The accommodating and functional floor plan lends itself to be a perfect home to host parties and get-togethers – both indoor and out. Love cooking, baking, and entertaining? This eat-in kitchen is meant for you, as it offers perfect flow from room to room...imagine Sunday dinners in the screened-in-porch, surrounded by your friends and family, while gazing out into your own treed and private oasis. Just steps from the kitchen, the oversized yet warm family room, dressed in walls of windows, recessed lighting, and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with wood mantel, creates a cozy atmosphere. Finishing off this classic home is an oversized mudroom, five en-suite bedrooms, including a finished third floor with full bathroom, a bonus room above the garage, perfect for an au-pair, in-laws, visiting guests or for a legal accessory apartment, as well as a huge finished lower level...game room anyone? If you enjoy working in the garage, the large three-car garage with in-floor radiant heat is perfect for your own personal workshop. This high-efficiency home also includes six heating zones, camera system, central vacuum, indoor and outdoor sound system, and windows galore - letting in sunshine all day! Not to steal the show, the outdoors complete this dream home.
