Fairfield, CT —
Spend an afternoon in Greenfield Hill

What I love most about Fairfield is absolutely living in a town with both a countryside and a beach.
For a lovely afternoon in the country, take a drive up to Greenfield Hill. It’s a sprawling neighborhood of properties located in the northwest part of town, both above and below the Merritt Parkway. Homes are set on two or more acres, so hiking is literally in your own backyard. The beloved Audubon and Brett Woods beckon you to explore and delight in the quiet calm of a nature walk. The Audubon Center & Nature Store is open until 3 pm every day except Sunday, so be sure to take a peek at the owls and hawks in residence. The store has a great selection of bird-related items including feeders, birdhouses, birding books and gifts for the kids.

A recognizable icon in the quintessential neighborhood of Stratfield, this lovely Queen Anne Victorian delights inside and out. If you're searching for an updated antique, with loads of character and charm, then look no more. This one will have you at the wrap-around porch! Or maybe the stained-glass windows? The owners meticulously researched the era the home was built and kept that forefront of mind as they updated over the years. The Parlor, Family and Dining areas are rooms to savor, unwind and feel a bit like you've stepped back to yesteryear. The Kitchen is a showstopper, and in fact won top honors in the 2004 Sub-Zero/Wolf Kitchen Design Contest. It's still a classic with quarter sawn oak cabinets, copper and slate countertops, fir wood floor and tin ceiling. A rail ladder system allows you to reach high cabinets and adds to the whimsical allure of the space. A lot of cooking and entertaining have taken place at 538 over the years, and there's room for everyone! With five bedrooms on the 2nd floor & four on the 3rd, you won't want for space. Two of the bedrooms function as offices, a real convenience in the current work environment. Third floor has a large common area perfect as a playroom, homework center or tv/movie watching space. Basement has an exercise room and lots of storage. The perennial gardens are an added treat, and you are walking distance to Lincoln Park, Stratfield Elementary, places of worship and restaurants. Low monthly utilities!
