FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The Fairfield Beach area home of tennis star James Blake has been listed for sale by William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
Southport agent Craig Oshrin has the listing for the home, which is offered at $799,000. The four-bedroom, three-bath home sits in a gated community at 47 Crescent Road in Fairfield.
Blake’s completely fenced cul-de-sac residence in Fairfield is located within walking distance of town as well as Fairfield Beach. Featuring hardwood flooring and millwork throughout, the two-level home offers a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile accents and granite countertops. A large detached two-car garage, formerly used as a gym, accommodates extra storage space.
“This home formerly owned by a world-class tennis player is a must-see for the buyer seeking a combination of privacy, security and an outstanding beach area location,” Oshrin said. “In addition, this gem is ideal for the owner who loves to entertain, featuring a beautiful stone patio that is perfect for summer gatherings and barbecues.”
Blake rose to No. 4 in the world and was the top-ranked American player in 2006. He finished fourth in the Beijing Olympics, helped the U.S. win the Davis Cup in 2008 and reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in 2008 and U.S. Open in 2005. Blake was honored by the ATP with the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year award in 2008 for his support for cancer research. He retired from professional tennis in 2013.
