Situated on just under 6 acres, the farm represents one of the largest single parcels of property available over the last 8 years. Located across from the Fairfield Hunt Club, there are unparalleled views from all rooms of the house, a high degree of privacy (corner lot framed by the Hunt Club, Sasco Creek and Godfrey Lane) and yet is convenient to both 1-95 and the New Haven Line train, which is just minutes away.
Bees Knees Farm was purchased from Jay Sherwood whose extended family had represented or been associated with the property for several hundred years.
Development of this timeless classic farm in its current state took over 3 years to preserve the history of the original residence and to provide a modern home for today’s lifestyle. David Mann of Mann Architecture and Décor lead the design development of the houses (3 distinct buildings and architectural details).
The original house is joined to the main through a connecting atrium featuring floor to ceiling windows and doors. The doors connect to a front deck and the rear allowing for total flow from any room on the main level. It features a board and batten ceiling.
The main house styled as a Georgian Colonial and constructed in 2009, has a first floor committed to bringing the outdoors in. Designed to provide a full view, if you stand in the front paneled entrance – you look straight to the back yard (all 5+ acres) through a set of French doors.
The third part of the house (1940 Colonial) holds the vertical transport access (stairway that runs from the Garage and basement up through the center of the house).
Consistency and discipline uniformity in use of materials and design elements create a high quality, well finished, understated and comfortable living space.
