FAIRFIELD — Mild as this winter has been, people are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring and the summer season, particularly those who live near the beach.
The Energy Star-rated colonial house at 365 Lalley Boulevard in the Beach neighborhood qualifies; it is only one long block from Long Island Sound and Penfield Beach. While this house has been raised to be compliant with Federal Emergency Management Agency regulations, it is not the typical beach house. As one real estate agent said during a recent visit, this house provides “homey elegance.” Despite its level of elegance, it is not the kind of house that makes you feel afraid to sit down, she said. It has warmth.
