Grand Estates Auction Company is delighted to announce that the beautiful Fairfield County home was sold at absolute auction within 60 days of launching the global marketing campaign. The concentrated efforts attracted more than 75 inquiries and resulted in 40+ in-person previews of the home and grounds leading up to auction day. After the gavel fell and the estate was declared sold at the poolside bidding, the new owners excitedly ran to grab their children to explore their new home. The contract has been signed, the deposit has been received and the closing is scheduled to take place within the next 30 days. Congratulations to the seller and the buyer from the preeminent luxury auction specialist.

Fairfield County Estate

Grand Estates is proud to present this beautiful Fairfield County estate, with nearby access to Lake Lillinonah, for absolute auction on August 12th at 2pm.

Welcome to this 7.4-acre sanctuary for you and your family, located in the peaceful heart of Connecticut, only 72 miles from Manhattan. At the estate you have all the amenities of a fine resort and the areas’ lush natural surroundings offer cycling, hiking and horseback riding trails, hunting, boating and fishing outside your back door.  Watch the spectacular autumn leaf show in forested hills and river valleys; explore the area’s charming Colonial villages and historic sites. For the ultimate big-city experience, hop a train from nearby Danbury to New York’s Grand Central Station. This getaway property keeps you in the heart of it all while offering exceptional privacy and access to sporting activities.

A short walk down the street is Upper Paugussett State Forest and Lake Lillinonah. This 1900 acre lake is home to bald eagles and hosts power boating, water skiing, kayaking, world class fishing and world championship junior crew training. Adjacent to the boat ramp is state forest with miles of equestrian and mountain biking trails. In the winter the trails continue to be lovely for hiking, cross country skiing and snow-shoeing.

After a full day of exploring the immediate area, return to the Fairfield Estate on a private winding driveway, and through the gate to the home to be enjoyed for all seasons.
