    Description

    Known locally as "The Castle", this venerable stone fortress offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in one of Fairfield County's majestic and spectacular homes, custom built by an entrepreneurial businessman and later owned by a NYC financial mogul and his wife, a famous opera singer that entertained the likes of Bette Davis and Humphrey Bogart on many occasions. Inspired by European influence and medieval architecture, this old world craftsmanship was reborn in 2013 with a massive renovation by the current owners, incorporating state-of-the-art technology and high efficiency systems for today's modern living. Nothing spared in this eclectic home complete with 6 working fireplaces, 10' and 11' ceilings, and multiple french doors on 3 finished levels. Perfect in-law suite location on the main level. Chef's kitchen complete with Subzero,Wolf and Bosch appliances including a beautiful fireplace incorporating locally mined lavender quartz. French doors lead to a covered terrace, pantry & mudroom. The structure was built by local Freemasons with incredible attention to detail and homage to the Masonic community at the time. Hardwood flooring throughout the home with radiant floor heat in the lower level and 2nd floor bathrooms. Amazing property with plenty of parking and a site-plan drafted for a 4 car garage & in-ground pool. Perfect for in-law/multi-generations or mixed use* needs. Can easily house horses/paddock; additional land is available to purchase. A rare find!
