Historic waterfront estate on Sasco Point, located at 1143 Sasco Hill Road in Fairfield, CT has been listed on sale for a whopping $62 million. It is the most valuable residential property in town, and one of the most expensive estates along all of Connecticut’s Gold Coast. Stunning 20-acre estate with 1,850 feet of spectacular water-frontage features a 17,000-plus-square-foot Elizabethan Renaissance-style manor house, built in 1923, but offering all amenities of this century.
10 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, 6 bedroom Victorian gate house, 5 bedroom guest house, carriage house with 2 bedroom staff apartment and 6-car garage are some of the main features. But more interesting are additional such as post-and-beam barn, tennis court, heated swimming pool, numerous out buildings, and spectacular views – both east and west – of Long Island Sound as well as Southport Harbor. And not to forget romantic Tudor Gothic Revival boat house at water”s edge with grotto-style stone staircase leading to Sandy Beach.
The main house was designed for the original owners, Benjamin DeWitt Riegel and his wife Leila Edmonston Riegel, by noted New York City architect Henry C. Pelton, famous for designing the Riverside Church and the Cloisters in Manhattan.
