Deeds & Don'ts: At 300 Acres, Redding's Deer Run is a Sportsman's Paradise

Deeds & Don'ts: At 300 Acres, Redding's Deer Run is a Sportsman's Paradise

Redding's Deer Run, which claims to be the largest privately owned landmass in Fairfield County, clocks in at 300 acres. It’s marketed as a “sportsman’s paradise” and we’d have to agree—with the invitation extended to sporty ladies as well—considering its equestrian facilities (fields, barn, riding trails), private lake with a boathouse, tennis court and indoor and outdoor pools. And oh, yes, there’s also a 16,000-square-foot, stone-and-shingle-style manor house offering 19 grand and gracious rooms.

The highest-priced home ever to hit the town-of-Fairfield market—and, currently, the second-most expensive listing in the state—is a $62 million property along Sasco Hill Road with views over Long Island Sound.

Deeds & Don'ts: Four Connecticut Homes with Spectacular Grounds and Notable Topography

Deeds & Don'ts: Four Connecticut Homes with Spectacular Grounds and Notable Topography

The goal for this month’s roundup of homes was to find listings that have such spectacular grounds and gardens you may well forget you came to see a house. From sandy beaches to horse-ready pasturelands to foothills and mountains, their topography varies widely—so put on some comfy shoes and join us for a tour of the great outdoors.

Deeds & Don'ts: Early Bloomers

Deeds & Don'ts: Early Bloomers

One of the snowiest Februarys on record meant the 2015 market got off to a slow start. But come March, brokers noticed a pick up in traffic, thanks, in part, to indications from the Fed that mortgage rates will increase sometime soon. Sellers, too, are starting to list their homes, which is “a wise move,” says Becky Walsh of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. “They’ll have a leg up on sellers who are waiting until the grass is green and their gardens are in full bloom.” Here, a look at six spectacular listings, from a literary landmark in New Canaan to a Greenwich gem with its own three-hole golf course.

Deeds & Don'ts: Small Homes with Awesome Amenities

Deeds & Don'ts: Small Homes with Awesome Amenities

It’s not hard to find an impressive big house or a small house with more modest charms. What’s difficult is locating a gem of a home that’s been lavished with fine finishes and awesome amenities but that also clocks in at 3,000 square feet or fewer—or so they say. In actual fact, even in a state known for its grand estates, Connecticut offers a wealth of small wonders, including antique farmhouses, brand-new townhomes and everything in between.

Deeds & Don'ts: Romantic Winterludes

Deeds & Don'ts: Romantic Winterludes

February is the month when we celebrate the great indoors. With the weather outside still frightful—some combination of snowy, sleety, gray and cold—few can resist the urge to nest for the next few weeks. So this column is dedicated to places and spaces for just that, whether the nesting’s done at the hearth, in a cozy kitchen or romantic master suite, or all around a home built to accommodate house parties and weekend guests.

Deeds & Don'ts: Homes with Grand Kitchens

Deeds & Don'ts: Homes with Grand Kitchens

Realtors report that the heart of the home has to function as just that: a space to gather for family meals (sorry, dining room), entertain, do homework, watch movies, hang out and, oh yes, prepare food. The most common complaint about the kitchens in older homes is that they were designed as remote rooms for cooks and servants—a la Downton Abbey—with no connection to where family life is lived. So topping the “ideal kitchen” list is an easy flow into a family or great room, a formal dining room, preferably with a butler’s pantry, and doors that open onto a terrace for al fresco dining.
