Circa 1825 Greek Revival

536 Old Post Road, Fairfield CT

$1,695,000

Situated in the charming Historic District of the Town of Fairfield, “Stone Wall” is a federally protected landmark that has, historically, been an excellent place to ride out a storm. Privately enclosed on a one-acre parcel behind the classic New England fieldstone wall that lends the property its name, Stone Wall was built in 1825 and has been noted as “the finest example of Greek Revival architecture in Connecticut.” In 2004, award-winning architect Jack Franzen completed an extensive million-dollar renovation which restored all the historic charm while adding the luxury comforts and modern features one would expect in a new home. From the grand foyer to the parlor, sitting room to formal dining room, family and guests are beckoned to join in good company, conversation, epic game nights, and the warm hospitality this home was designed for. Mechanical features include public water and sewer, natural gas hydro air heating, central a/c on all levels, security system, all new electrical and CAT 5 wiring throughout. Living in a coastal community, it’s good to know Old Post Road is located outside the flood zone, and its proximity to town hall has been favorable during utility outages, yet it’s only a picturesque fifteen-minute walk to Fairfield Beach. The professionally landscaped acre includes mature privacy trees, wooden perimeter fencing, and a security gate at the drive. The yard has room for a pool and tennis court, which is rare so close to downtown. Being within walking distance to the train station, incredible restaurants, shopping, beaches, and summer events on the Green is all part of the beauty of this gracious and grand home. We’d love to show you around, give us a call.

Classical details

Greek Revival architecture is referred to as the “National style” of the early 1800’s. It coincided with the growing acceptance of Democracy and marked a young, flourishing America. The detailed architectural trim, heavily molded cornices, classical Corinthian columns and tall slender windows had a broad appeal that represented both economic security and a distant idealized culture – having a temple-like feel. Great care was taken during the extensive renovations to maintain the integrity of the original historic Grecian style.

In addition, they enhance and conserve natural resources, protect fish and wildlife habitats, serve as outdoor classrooms for nature study, and contribute significantly to the beautiful rural characteristics that are so much a part of the Town of Fairfield.” – https://www.fairfieldct.org/openspace

Ye Yacht Yard also provides boat launch services to residents and access to moorings in Southport Harbor as well as 25 Kayak racks are available.
