The Property


Located in the heart of Fairfield County, the stunning country estate known as Shelterfields is a lush 10-acre Property that has been maintained to perfection. Six beds, six full and three half baths span the +/-8,500 sf living space, which was built in 1907, and vestiges of the original structure are visible in details like exposed beams throughout the residence. A charming foyer opens into the spacious formal living room and dining room, and the adjacent gourmet kitchen with professional-grade appliances features a center island and countertops of Carrera marble. French doors connect the kitchen to a gorgeous gardened terrace and views of the Aspetuck River (and the surrounding lands protected by a conservation easement). Two en-suite bedrooms, a large family room, and a wine cellar with storage for more than 1,000 bottles complete the main level.

Four bedrooms and multiple entertaining areas comprise the upper level, including a master suite with private balcony, walk-in closets, and a large master bath with soaking tub and separate shower. An adjacent office and entertainment room offer space to work and play, while a sitting room with fireplace provides a private place for relaxation.

A massive, 27-ft by 43-ft great room is connected to the main living areas by a short hallway, and features high-gloss wood floors, exposed wood beams, powder room and a private balcony – perfect for a music room, billards room or “man-cave.”

Outdoors, patios covered and uncovered offer expansive views of the rolling countryside, and the estate’s grounds include a tennis court, greenhouse, fire pit, and private pond. Additionally, a Gunite pool surrounded by stone walls and carefully pruned trees features a pool house with changing room just across the motor court.

The Community

REDDING, CT. Small, picturesque and easily accessible via car and train from New York City, Redding has become a coveted community for those who wish to maintain a weekend home or main residence outside of the heart of NYC.

Settled in the 1600s, Redding was recognized as a parish in 1729 and granted its first U.S. Post Office in 1809. Used as winter encampment quarters in 1778, the town served as a home for 3,000 soldiers charged with guarding the Danbury supply depot and defending against Sir Henry Clinton’s attacks in the Revolutionary War.

Fast forward a few hundred years, and Redding is still very much an important point on the map, raking as one of the best small towns in the country by CNN Money in 2009, and as one of the top small towns in Connecticut in 2012 by Connecticut Magazine.

Redding emphasizes culture and education, and is ranked 11th out of Connecticut’s 169 municipalities in median household income. Local John Reade Middle School has won a National Blue Ribbon distinction, and other schools in the area are consistently ranked among the best in the state.

In addition to a thriving visual arts scene, several large-scale movies have been filmed in town, including Wes Craven’s directorial debut, The Last House On The Left, 1975’s The Stepford Wives and the 1967 classic, Valley of the Dolls. From Samuel Clemens to Meatloaf, many famous people have called Redding home, such as Jessica Tandy, Christopher Walken, Flannery O’Connor, Daryl Hall and Leonard Bernstein.

The Location

FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CT. With just under a million residents, Fairfield County, Connecticut is the most populous county in the Constitution State. Established in 1666 by the Connecticut General Court, Fairfield originally included parts of what is now New York State.

Although often seen as an extension of the New York City metropolitan area, Fairfield County has thriving industries of its own, in addition to being an important center for international businesses who prefer to have their headquarters near – as opposed to within – New York City. Clairol, General Electric, Sikorsky Aircraft and quite a few money management firms are based in Fairfield County.

While located only 90 minutes from Manhattan by car, Fairfield boasts a very different skyline: that of the Taconic mountain range. The range’s natural beauty and historic charm is famous, and makes the area a perfect weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.
