FAIRFIELD — Owning a piece of Fairfield history is appealing to homeowners, although not everyone appreciates the amount of work that must go into maintaining a vintage house.
The wheat-colored colonial house at 1024 Unquowa Road provides its homeowners a “new construction feel with historic accents.” This high-end colonial house in the Sturges neighborhood is only six years old. The vintage saltbox-style house that once stood on this nearly one-quarter of an acre level parcel dated back to the mid-18th century. It was built by David Barlow, a member of a prominent early Fairfield family. Barlow Road is just a few streets away.
