Description for 916 Pequot Avenue Fairfield, CT 06890
The commanding beauty and stunning symmetry of this c.1863 Georgian Colonial will take your breath away. It is generously set back from the road and framed by a pair of magnificent copper beech trees. It was originally built by Sea Captain Walter Thorpe and later owned by Simon Banks, a wealthy proprietor of the Banks Shipping Line. The home has undergone 2 major renovations, first by Simon Banks in 1892 and second, by Cameron Clarke in the early 1900's. It includes 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 4 original fireplaces, 9 ft ceilings and original floors, doors, and windows. The classic floor plan includes formal and informal gathering spaces. There have been numerous recent upgrades including the addition of a custom slate roof with finialed iron widows walk, and formidable matching chimneys. Landscaping, fencing and stonework are all newer. Inside, a sleek contemporary kitchen has been added which is fully outfitted for the discerning chef and perfect for entertaining. It opens to the rear of the home where you'll find a new covered deck stepping down to an oasis of sculpted gardens, flowering trees, stone patio and newer 20 X 40 heated gunite pool and spa. The detached 2 car garage with loft has also been restored with new metal roof and barn doors. Ideally located just steps to the Harbor, Beach, and Train, this remarkable Antique has retained its architectural significance while blending exceptional modern amenities to create this iconically beautiful coastal home.
