Fairfield was chosen as the location for The House on Sasco Hill because of its proximity to NYC together with the convenience, comfort and sheer beauty of living in New England.  The result is a lifestyle like no other; one that is down the street and around the world.


The Town of Fairfield combines with neighboring communities to form Fairfield County – the largest county in Connecticut and the wealthiest in all of New England.  Prominent people from all walks of life proudly call it home.  Some are enticed here by the stunning surroundings and sophisticated lifestyle.  Others appreciate the family friendly environment and the tradition of protecting personal privacy.


All are seduced by Fairfield’s natural beauty. The environment is a model of diversity involving tidal swells, sandy beaches and sea grass that give way to rolling hills and deep verdant forests.  Each season has its say: Dogwoods  flower in the spring, boats and miles of beaches provide access to the Long Island Sound in the summer, trees everywhere show off their fiery colored leaves in the fall, and snow paints the landscape white during brief periods in the winter.


Fairfield is truly beautiful and playful but practical and properly positioned as well:


Access to NYC:  The 50 miles between Fairfield and mid-town Manhattan are quickly traversed (often within an hour) by train and two major highways (I95 and Merritt Parkway).  A helicopter ride takes less than 20 minutes from Sikorsky.  It is no wonder that Fairfield is considered New York’s favorite suburb and why residents take full advantage of all that NYC has to offer.


Access to the Eastern Seaboard: Fairfield is located in the middle Amtrak’s Acela Express train service which runs hourly during rush hour between Washington D.C. and Boston.


Access to the World: Three major international airports JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark are within easy commuting distance and facilitate travel everywhere.  Additionally, three regional airports (Westchester, Hartford, and New Haven) are close by, as are private airports and heliports.


So, it is easy to get away, but you may not want to because opportunities abound in Fairfield!


While some residents commute to NYC, most work right here.  In the historic town centers and other diverse economic surroundings, a thriving mix of retail, commercial, and industrial enterprises energize our communities.  Notables include: General Electric, RBS, Diageo, UBS, Bigelow Tea, Ethan Allen, Silver Point Capital, Time Warner Cable, Pitney Bowes, Clairol, Duracell and Sikorsky.


NYC theatres are always available, but so is the Westport Country Playhouse, the Levitt Pavilion, the Long Wharf Theatre, the Goodspeed Opera House, The Yale Repertory Theatre, The Palace Theatre and several others.  And movie theatres are everywhere running current releases and art films.


NYC is famous for its museums and libraries. But so is Fairfield County with the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, The Bruce Museum, The Discovery Museum and Planetarium, the Fairfield Museum and History Center, and the iconic Pequot Library leading the way.


Yes, you can shop for anything in NYC, but most of the major stores have locations in the Stamford or Westchester Malls where more than 100 stores are at your fingertips.  In addition, there are “homegrown” stores that are available only here.  Regardless of where you shop you get to go there in the comfort of your car.


Dining is always a adventure in NYC, but your palate will be pleased and excited by the quality of options in Fairfield, which are the outgrowth of the diversity of our communities.


It’s certainly possible to raise a family in NYC, but it is a lot easier in Fairfield. Many things, large and small combine to make this a real community.  Throughout Fairfield County the idea of a neighborhood was never lost and the Yankee tradition of a chat across a backyard fence is very much alive and well.


Residents of Fairfield County delight and compete in all manner of activity including sailing, golf, tennis, soccer, baseball, football, basketball, hockey, shooting and horseback riding, with skiing and race car driving close by.  Access is easy with an abundance of public facilities and private clubs right in your back yard.


Here the public school system enjoys a national reputation for excellence and there are a vast variety of wonderful private schools.  On the collegiate level, West Point, Columbia, NYU, Yale, Wesleyan, and Fairfield University are all an easy drive away.


The possibilities are endless! The House on Sasco Hill – a place to live, work, study and play in a community that honors the past, delights in the present, celebrates the future, and remembers that quality of life should not be an afterthought.
