On the Market: Fairfield home offers mix of privacy and community

FAIRFIELD - The coronavirus pandemic has brought heartache, as well as a challenge for working and distance learning at home. But, as with all difficult situations, there is a silver lining.

The forced lock-down in the spring, and the continuing need to socially distance has brought many families and neighbors closer together and has given people an appreciation for a simpler way of life: shared meals, game nights, long walks together and bike riding on the quiet street.

The residents of the green colonial house at 261 Hemlock Hills Road South in Fairfield's Greenfield Hill neighborhood never really lost sight of that simpler, congenial time. This part of town and this particular property "offers privacy yet within a true neighborhood," according to the owners.
