On the market: Out of the pages of a magazine
FAIRFIELD — Visitors to the colonial townhouse at 63 Southport Green will cross the threshold and feel as if they just stepped into the pages of a high-end architectural or home décor magazine.
This end unit sits in a cul-de-sac in the Southport Green complex just steps from the Delamar Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel in the Southport section.
Understated elegance is the hallmark of this 4,017-square-foot townhouse, which has 10 rooms and three levels of living space. The architectural and design elements combine to create a fresh take on tradition.
It is one of 24 townhouses in the complex, which is only blocks from Southport Village and Southport Harbor. Also within an easy walk is the Southport train station and Pequot Library. Commuters, take note: In addition to the train, Interstate 95 and Post Road (Route 1) are nearby.
This white house with dark green shutters was built in 2006 and includes custom details including open bookcases, sophisticated millwork and bold colors.
The covered front entrance, with sidelights and transom, opens to the long center hall. To the right is a sitting room with grass cloth wallcovering and French doors that close it off from the foyer.
