Steps to Fairfield’s Sasco Beach
Rooted in Southern tradition and giving way to their distinct passion for Manhattan Chic, the owners expertly renovated a 1920’s “rare find” to utter perfection. Steeped in charm & grace, they took the already classic bones of this “steps from the beach estate” into today’s hip, young, magazine quality expression of the new breed of world class LUXE elegance.
Our talented, successful couple (a business man and contemporary art dealer with three young children) studied intensively historical architectural detailing of grand estates. Their research resulted in a glorious exterior renovation that celebrates a brand new spirit for their timeless treasure. The new herringbone limestone portico heralds the elegant hospitality the home exudes and signals the classic take on stylish living inside. Inhaling an abundance of light reflected from the nearby water and strategically placed for a splendid view of the nearly 2-acre property and lovely gardens is the gracious conservatory they had custom designed with roll-down screens to capture the playful sea breezes that flow over the promontory of Sasco Point.
In addition to all the latest interior design work including luscious paints, draperies and papers, the owners designed a paneled library based on the best of established Georgian design with a variety of hand-carved architectural moldings that sets the room apart from typical paneled libraries. The lower level was climate controlled finished hosting a wine cellar (antique stone and old oak), a fabulous playroom, an office & a multi-use room. The Nanny’s/Guest Cottage is directly from a fairy tail with spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, bath & loft.
With a five year plan under their belt and having formed memories to last a lifetime, our owners are going home to the South.After accomplishing what they had set out to do and in the delight of knowing they have created a real-life spectacular work of art with an inspiring essence and a passionate soul, our owners lovingly pass on the romantic balconies with breathtaking water views, the porches and porch swings which echo the wonderful times with family and friends, the ambiance of the gracious public and private rooms, and the over all special feel of the home which seamlessly combines elegant entertaining with a strong sense of family comfort and fun.
