FAIRFIELD — The worldwide pandemic is easing its stranglehold on the United States and people are beginning to venture out in public again, but it will be a while before life is back to normal, or a new normal. The coronavirus is actually making people re-think their home-buying options and influencing the decision-making process. Comfort, living space, and sustainability are high on the list of must-have features, according to many real estate industry experts.
With that in mind, the cream-colored colonial house at 117 High Point Lane should be high on the list of houses to consider. Comfort? Check. Generously sized rooms and lots of them? Check. A large enough yard for play, recreational activities, and vegetable gardening, and perhaps a chicken coop? Check. Add to that commutability and convenience. The house is less than five minutes from the Merritt Parkway, only about 10 minutes to the downtown Fairfield Metro North train station, and about five minutes to shops and restaurants along Black Rock Turnpike.
