Coastal towns in Fairfield Country have always been attractive for their beaches and waterfront amenities. Buyers often hope to live as close to the water as possible if a direct waterfront home is out of reach. Whether you’re right on the water, you have a view of the river or you walk to the beach, nothing compares with the feeling from living in close proximity to the water.
There’s a wide range of locations and options to explore – you might look at Owenoke Park or Beachside Avenue in Westport for direct waterfront properties. The Westport community of Saugatuck Shores has a casual, “vacation-year-round” feel and its own private beach for residents. Many homes on Surf Road have deep-water docks. Westport’s Old Mill beach has year-round waterfront homes accessed only by a footpath.
The town of Fairfield has 5 beaches including fresh water Lake Mohegan. Penfield Beach, Jennings Beach, Sasco Hill Beach and Southport Beach are all on the Long Island Sound coastline and you will find direct-water homes that range from “fixer uppers” to grand estates. Two public marinas in Fairfield, the South Benson Marina and the historic Ye Yacht Yard are also on the coastline and beckon to neighboring residents who what to take in the salt air and ocean breezes.
Weston has many riverfront properties and some are suitable for swimming and kayaking. St. Mary’s By the Sea is an upcoming waterfront enclave in Bridgeport’s Black Rock and offers more affordable homes, many with Long Island Sound Views.
