If youre thinking of moving up from a condo, this is an excellent time to shop. There are many well-priced starter homes on the market right now, though not many of them come with an in-ground pool. Here's a three-bedroom cape in the bustling Stratfield neighborhood of Fairfield, near the new train station and 10 minutes from the shops and the beach that has its own swimming pool in the backyard.
The house has been meticulously maintained by the seller and packs a lot into its 1,732 square feet. The tiled eat-in kitchen has loads of cabinet space, including a large pantry. The living and dining rooms have hardwood floors, while the family room has wall-to-wall carpet and sliders leading out to a wooden deck. There are three bedrooms upstairs, all with hardwood flooring, and a hall bathroom. The powder room is on the first floor. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet.
The lot is about 0.19 acres, mostly level, with the pool and a nice set up for outdoor entertaining. There is off-street parking as well as a one-car attached garage. Asking price for 42 Alberta Street in Fairfield is $469,900. Property taxes in 2010 were $6,693.
