Fairfield is a great Connecticut town, located in Fairfield County
In 2012 Fairfield was voted 64th in the Top 100 Towns to Live in the United States by Money Magazine. Fairfield is one of the larger towns in Fairfield County, with waterfront properties on scenic Long Island Sound and Fairfield University is located near the center of town.
If you are looking to live here there are many wonderful neighborhoods to consider. Last month we talked about the University area and Greenfield Hill. Fairfield is big, so this month I thought we could look closer at the Beach area in Fairfield and Southport, CT.
So far in March, 4 houses and 1 condominium have sold in the beach neighborhood of Fairfield. The prices range from $350,000 for a cape to a 4 bedroom 4.5 bath colonial built in 2011, that sold for $1,400,000.

Some lovely homes are on the market right now in Southport with prices ranging from $269,000 all the way up to $12,900,000.
There are many different feels to the Southport section of Fairfield. If you are in town in Southport you can walk to shops and restaurants and there are beautiful ivy covered antique townhouses. There are also Sprawling estates on the water that have views of Long Island sound and Southport Harbor.
Hopefully Southport will get some more activity in the coming months with all those active listings.
