FAIRFIELD, Conn. – An estate that frequently served as celebrated playwright, composer, director and actor Noel Coward’s Connecticut retreat recently returned to the market.
Located in the coveted hilltop enclave of Sasco Hill Road in Fairfield, the antique English Manor house is represented by Southport agent Victoria Fingelly and listed at $7.75 million, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced.
Coward published more than 50 plays. He additionally composed hundreds of songs, musical theater works, poetry and short stories, as well as maintained a successful film acting and directing career that spanned six decades.
Constructed in 1927 by noted New York architect and Anglophile Francis Hamilton, the brick house, with its asymmetrical massing, boasts Paladian dormer windows, Tudor chimney pots and a hooded entry inspired by English architecture. After extensively traveling abroad, Hamilton brought skilled European craftsmen to the site to create and install Norwegian pine paneling, wood moldings, hand-carved wood garlands and marble fireplace surrounds in various spaces, including the home’s spacious living room.
The residence’s stately interior also includes seven bedrooms, all with en suite baths, as well as three half-baths.
The 2.96-acre property with panoramic views of Long Island Sound and Southport Harbor also includes multiple terraces, an in-ground pool, pool house with a dressing room and wet bar.
