On the Market: Water in the front, preserved open space in the back in Fairfield

Summer may be winding down; Labor Day is around the corner and the official beginning of the fall season is just a month away. Still, there is no cause to abandon a summer state of mind, especially for those who live in the gray colonial house at 262 Pine Creek Ave. in Fairfield.

This 2,727-square-foot house was built in 1987 in the Beach neighborhood with Long Island Sound in the "front" yard and preserved open space in the "back" yard. The location of this seven-room house provides its residents with unobstructed views of water and the canvas of sky that changes daily, and often multiple times a day. It also has views of the boats sailing by, shore birds, sunrises, and sunsets.

It's on the market for $2,495,000.
