The feeling of walking out your back door, across your lawn, and onto the beach is priceless, but if there has to be a price on it, it costs $12 million at this Fairfield, Connecticut
home. Located in the coastal Southport area, the breathtaking shingle-style home sits on a 1.37-acre lot and offers 200-feet of private beach, not to mention a heated gunite pool and beautiful interiors.Built in 1908, the house retains original architectural details, but has also undergone thoughtful expansions. Now, with a whopping 9 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, this 9,730-square-foot abode is perfect for large gatherings or large families. The freestanding Carriage House boasts a garage and second story loft, providing some privacy for guests or perhaps a place for kids to play to their hearts content.As well as offering plenty of space, the residence also has mesmerizing finishes. Details like the unique Cherry paneling in the oval dining room and the porcelain floors in the kitchen show that thought was put into every design decision.Victoria Fingelly of William Pitt | Sotheby’s International Realty
