Built circa 1916, this direct beachfront home known as “Rosalie Cottage” has withstood the test of time and been renovated throughout the years without sacrificing its vintage charm.
This 1,800-square-foot home was named after the family’s aunt, who owned it for more than 50 years. The breathtaking water views and deep, sandy beach that comes up to the front porch are as inviting as the home itself. There is also an upper porch.
With an open floor plan, there are gleaming hardwood floors throughout the home and two completely remodeled full bathrooms.
The living room has a fireplace with large windows to view the beach from any angle. The master bedroom is a gem, with a fireplace and private deck to watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Long Island Sound.
“The Fairfield Beach area is a wonderful community of neighbors who care for each other, which was so evident during Storm Sandy,” said Juliann Hudson of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
A balcony, cabana and patio are on the rear of the home, where a path leads directly from the home to the water.
