People generally think of Greenfield Hill as the highest point in Fairfield, and though that neighborhood may sit at the highest altitude, other local neighborhoods also can boast attractive views from on high. The Georgian Colonial house at 301 Fulling Mill Lane sits at a point in its Southport area neighborhood to enjoy views of Long Island Sound even from the first floor.

Built in 1986, this house was renovated in 2009 to give it a new addition and 6,250 square feet of uniquely configured living space. Unlike most houses, this one has a wing that sits on an angle from the main portion of the house with a large, round atrium that is flanked by two separate garages, each one with two bays.

The upward sloping, paved driveway is lined with Belgian block. A stone path leads to the covered front porch with two fluted columns and sidelights framing the front door. The white wood clapboard house has dark shutters, a Palladian window above the front entrance, and on the front façade is dentil molding, which continues as a design element inside. Several rooms and fireplaces have dentil crown molding.

The foyer has Wainscoting in the lower walls and stone flooring with crushed oyster shells, which is repeated in the gourmet kitchen. The foyer powder room has an Asian-inspired wallpaper.

There are three fireplaces in this house -- in the formal living room, family room and master bedroom suite. The formal dining room has a double row of chair railing. French doors separate the living and dining rooms. There is a cafe door between the dining room and kitchen.

Most of the rooms have hardwood floors, although the atrium has limestone flooring.

It also features tall windows with transoms and front and rear entrances including French doors to the backyard, where there is a fire pit, in-ground swimming pool, bluestone patio, stone walls, trellises and terraced gardens. The attractive landscaping includes several river birch trees. There are French doors to the backyard from the family room as well.

Kitchen features include sage green marble counters, a center island topped in the same marble, double stainless sinks, glass front cabinets, built-in desk area and eat-in area. Appliances include a Jenn-Air five-burner range on the island.

Above each garage is a large room; one is a bedroom with a full bath and the other has flexible use. It currently serves as a home office. It has wall-to-wall carpeting and built-in bookshelves. The bedroom has a hardwood floor. Both have a vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan.
