FAIRFIELD — Many have ascribed to Fairfield County the image of New York City’s “bedroom community.” The listing agent for 4480 Congress St. in the town of Fairfield puts it another way. She calls Fairfield County “New York City’s backyard.”
Within the gates of the majestic country estate at this address is one of the best amenities New York City has in its “backyard.” This 9.55-acre fully fenced resort-like property features a tennis court, Gunite in-ground swimming pool, two-bedroom guest house, pond, and a detached 12-car garage that will have car collectors salivating. In other words, this Greenfield Hill estate is the perfect “personal Hamptons alternative,” the agent says. And that’s just what is immediately available on this property. It doesn’t take into consideration that this bucolic property has just beyond its own backyard the Roy and Margot Larsen Wildlife Sanctuary.
