On the Market: Rare new construction in Fairfield
Published 12:00 am, Saturday, October 15, 2016
Construction has been underway in this development for the last couple of years. Several houses have already sold and families are living there. When completed, this development will have 18 luxury houses, all of which are on one-plus-acre lots, and convenient to local amenities. The neighborhood is just minutes away from Southport Harbor, Southport and downtown Fairfield train stations, Interstate 95, retail stores and restaurants. Mill Hill Elementary School is within easy walking distance. Westport’s east end shops and restaurants are also easily accessible from this location.
The white clapboard Colonial house with dark shutters at 141 Southport Terrace was built in 2015. It sits on a 1.01-acre level corner lot bordering Carriage Drive. It has 12 rooms and about 4,200 square feet of living space. The full, finished walk-out basement provides another 872 square feet of space. Its front entrance is flanked by sidelights and opens into the spacious foyer from which the formal living and dining rooms are accessed.
