Fairfield 12-room home from the 1930s offers commanding views

FAIRFIELD — The 12-room home at 794 Sasco Hill Road sits on a hillside with a commanding view of the Country Club of Fairfield golf course, Southport Harbor, Long Island Sound and - on a clear day - the Manhattan skyline in the distance.

Built circa 1937, the home was originally designed by MIT-trained architect Louis C. Rosenberg, who used the exacting classical rules of scale and proportion, according to the listing.

Mark P. Finlay Architects undertook a substantial recent renovation, creating a “magazine-quality residence,” the listing dubs in move-in condition.

Set on 1.6 acres, the brick estate features a full 5,777 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and 5.5 baths. The living room, dining room and library on the main level all sport hardwood floors, French doors and fireplaces.

The home’s eat-in kitchen also includes French doors and a pantry. A main floor half-bath has a marble floor.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite offers a dressing room and full bath. Two of the three additional family bedrooms are also en suite.
