FIRST LOOK AT SUMMER
With a wave of fresh new listings, there's a deep and varied inventory in every price range from low (in the $800,000s) to high (see Dunellen, above). Here, in that order, are our picks for June:
This pristinely renovated home along the Saugatuck River is reminiscent of a tidy English cottage. And while just 1,400 square feet, it offers three bedrooms, three bathrooms and lovely vintage details, including beamed ceilings and a stone fireplace. Situated on one acre, the property also features a pretty stone terrace. Erle Bjornstad of the Higgins Group in Fairfield has the listing (203-254-9000).
Downturn? What downturn? To date, 60 out of 61 of the units in the Maritime, SoNo's new luxury condominium, have sold, reports listing agent Jim Campbell. And buying that last Maritime home would put you on the top of the heap: It's a 1,900-square-foot, three-bedroom penthouse with two private terraces from which to take in views over the Norwalk River and the red brick splendor of renovated South Norwalk. A terrific example of smart growth, the Maritime gives owners the luxury of walking to the train station, as well as to the restaurants and shops along Washington Avenue. Campbell can be reached at (203) 354-1505.
Called the Hickock Rounds House in the historic Cannondale section of Wilton, the earliest parts of this renovated Colonial date back to the 18th century. Here is the rare antique that also makes for a superb family home with a total of six bedrooms, two family rooms (one upstairs, one down), nine fireplaces and a gunite pool with a cabana and even a bocce court. Ann Nash of Realty Seven in Wilton has the listing. She can be reached (203) 762-5548, ext. 336.
