When the owner, Ronald P. Marshall Interior Designer, of 1 Hubbell Lane in Fairfield built this custom Mine Hill home, he combined a luxury home builder, architect and landscape designer to create the perfect blend of comfort, luxury, privacy and convenience designed with family in mind.
The 10,000+ square foot masterpiece is complete with an elegant, four-bedroom main house and a two-bedroom guest house, all set on two stunning acres in the sought-after lower Greenfield Hill area, just ten minutes to the train station and downtown.
Impeccable attention to detail and many thoughtful 2018 updates including Smart House technology can be found throughout. The foyer sets the tone for warmth and grandeur and introduces a gracious family room accented by a soaring ceiling, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a built-in glass and granite wine bar. A dramatic wall of French doors overlooks the expansive pool area and enchanting grounds.
“This is the most magnificent part of this property,” says listing agent Christine Magliocco. “The grounds are stunning in every season with pops of color and simple beauty at every turn. The grounds and gardens are seamlessly married to the surrounding patios, arbors and balconies encompassing the gorgeous Gunite pool and spa.”
Beautiful and functional dining areas include an elegant formal dining room with fireplace, butler’s pantry and wet bar, as well as a bright and open breakfast room with a wall of French doors opening to the patio and pool. The breakfast room opens into the gourmet kitchen boasting an oversized island with seating, state of the art appliances, walk-in pantry and an additional dining area.
“Having three different seating areas open and in view allows a great flow for entertaining and makes having 24 guests for Thanksgiving a breeze,” the owners stated.
At the opposite end of the home in a wing of its own, the first floor master bedroom suite is a lavish retreat, boasting a fireplace with granite surround, a spectacular two-story library and sitting room encased with handsome built-ins and private covered bluestone patio. A masterful spiral 2-story library staircase leads to a lower level with walls of built-ins and an expansive walk-in closet.
Upstairs, three additional bedrooms are impeccably appointed. Connecting the bedrooms is a balcony that overlooks the first floor. Two smaller rooms set off of each side of the balcony offer great options for additional living space.
A home theater and temperature/humidity controlled wine room are added amenities. On the lower level is a beautiful second living room, Christopher Peacock gourmet catering kitchen, home gym and fifth bedroom offering a guest, au-pair or in-law accommodations.
Attached to the home and accessible through a private breezeway with separate entrance and garage is a spectacular two-story guest house featuring a living room and dining room, gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, custom cabinetry and granite countertops and a great room with beamed cathedral ceiling, floor-to-ceiling fireplace and French doors to the pool and patio. There are two en-suite bedrooms, two balconies, hot tub and finished lower level with sauna.
“The guest home has been great for extended family visits as well as for in-laws,” the owners added. Also, it’s like living tax free since the rent from the guest home exceeds the annual tax amount.”
