1930s colonial in Fairfield listed for $795K

FAIRFIELD — The colonial-style, brick home at 46 Brooklawn Terrace looks straight out of a holiday movie.

The home, built in 1939, is located in the Stratfield section of Fairfield. Homeowners in the Stratfield area organized the Stratfield Village Association around 15 years ago. The area consists of 7,000 residents and is one of the more vibrant and diverse parts of town, according to the association’s website.

From the outside, the home deems all qualities of a colonial with its rectangular  shape and its three stories in height. The home is described as a “handsome and attractive design” by the listing agent Patrice Hunt of William Pitt Sothesby’s International Realty .

Hunt draws attention to the home’s unique exterior with the brick and granite stone facade. The focal point, undoubtedly, is the white, arched doorway with stained glass windows, elevated by slate steps. The stone continues onto the detached, two-car garage, according to the listing details.

Through the arched doorway, the home opens into the living room that continues on to the kitchen and dining room. The home is a functional, family home with its four bedrooms and three bathrooms included in its 3,400 square feet. Hunt describes the home as having a warm and comfortable feel.

The kitchen offers a sense of openness, with its L-shaped counter and breakfast nook tucked into the rear of the house, according to the floorplan.

The second-level has three bedrooms, all with ample closet space. The front-facing bedroom has its own entrance to a sunroom. The second-level also has one bathroom with recent updates including heated floors and Italian tile, according to the listing details.

The third-level has an additional bedroom, bathroom, bonus room and multiple attic storage rooms, per the floorplan.

The home also has a finished basement with amenities including a fireplace, wet bar with a mahogany countertop. There is a recreational room and an additional bathroom.

The rear kitchen door leads out to a stone patio in the home’s backyard, which the listing describes as "oversized." The yard has its own oval-shaped private track in the yard. Hunt says that a former owner created the track for their toddlers to learn how to ride a tricycle, offering a safer alternative for outdoor activities to the road.
