This cute mountaintop hideaway has perfectly retro vibes, a modern layout maximizing light and flow, and magnificently vaulted screen porch – made complete with an annex office/workshop shed. Gather, picnic, and sun bathe to your heart’s delight on the deck and grassy front lawn, and step inside to cool off in the central air, making summer days a breeze. Come evening, pop down the hill for a sunset swim, returning to settle into the screen porch for a nightcap as the fireflies put on their show.

A five minute walk in one direction leads to over 20 miles of resplendent woodland trailways crossing ridge, valley, and stream, while a five minute drive in the other offers endless shopping, dining, and amenities. Truly the best of all worlds, and in all seasons, in a peaceful community filled with lore, centrally located among all the multitudes of culture, convenience, and destinations Fairfield County has to offer.
