There are many houses that marry old and new architectural elements to accommodate contemporary living needs in an antique space. The colonial house at 3236 Congress St. in the Greenfield Hill section of Fairfield goes a step further.
It has the appearance of a vintage house. It is imbued with the charm and character of a house that might have been built more than 100 years ago but since it is relatively new construction.
The first hint of its newness is its 7,800 square feet of living space; a new 2,500-square-foot post-and-beam barn with multiple vehicle bays on the main level and a large, open upper floor for entertaining.
The main house offers a number of features including a large mudroom with a pet alcove — a recessed area that would accommodate a large dog. The laundry/utility room has marble counters and a double sink.
A breezeway between the main house and the garage has French doors overlooking the front yard and the back.
On the second floor, the master bedroom suite has a marble fireplace, deep tray ceiling and a door to a large balcony. The master bath features white marble floors, a soaking tub, water closet, heated towel rack and a high-tech mirrored television.
In-ground Gunite swimming pool and spa with an automatic cover, has a resort-like in its appearance and level of privacy. It is hidden behind a large flower garden and a long arbor-enclosed bluestone path that is flanked by stone walls. The pool area includes a stone-and-wood pool house topped with a cupola and an outdoor fireplace.
The Guest House or Caretaker’s Cottage was built in 1914.
The entire property is level and includes terraced bluestone patios, open lawn, flower gardens and specimen trees.
