On the Market: New Southport mansion built right on the water

FAIRFIELD — Set on an acre at the head of one of the shoreline’s prettiest harbors, 1093 Pequot Avenue is the only direct waterfront new construction in Fairfield’s Southport section.

Designed to take advantage of unobstructed views, it boasts vistas from Sasco Hill in Fairfield to Beachside Avenue in Westport.

“The architect, Jack Franzen, was tasked with designing a classic Connecticut facade with the water facing rear of house composed mostly of windows and doors opening to the infinity pool and amazing views of the Long Island Sound,” said listing agent Andrew Whiteley, of AFA - William Raveis.

The front doors open to an interior that incorporates modern touches, such as 10-foot ceilings on the first floor and 12-foot-plus ceilings on the finished third floor.

The primary bedroom suite offers expansive views, a vaulted ceiling bath with steam shower and heated flooring, two large walk-in closets, a sitting room/office and a private deck with glass railings chosen to enhance the seascape.

The custom heated gunite pool is placed to maximize the ever-changing light and offer views of the wildlife and boats in and out of the harbor. The surrounding grounds feature a deck and terrace and an underground sprinkler system.

This more than 9,000-square-foot home is a quick walk to Southport Beach and the village shops and is accessed through a gate at the end of private Rock Point Road.
