Arundel...This exquisitely unique home was once the residence of celebrated author and playwright, Joseph Hayes. The house was modeled after a Tudor-style castle named Arundel in the South of England. The blue stone and unique architecture encompass the tranquil beauty and provide a serene utopia. Original iron handrails give detail to the foyer. Settled on almost six acres of professionally manicured grounds, its dramatic beauty entices the eye. Hayes, whose penchant for medieval theatre inspired him to create this idyllic setting, creating one of the finest estates in Fairfield County. The iron-studded front door, three inches thick with iron latches and bolts was imported from Austria. The home gracefully flows with a dramatic cathedral ceiling with hand hewn antique timbers for added charm. Within the great room there is a conversation pit with a grand fireplace. The mantel was brought in from a castle in Germany and is nothing else but breathtaking. It offers two grand master suites: one with a gas fireplace with a mantel of molded marble walk-in closet and generous spa like bath, and the other offering a gas fireplace and full bath, both with soaring vaulted ceilings. There are three additional bedrooms, two with mini balconies. Everyone knows that the heart of the home is the kitchen, but this home seems to have this feel throughout. In the kitchen you will find a fireplace set in brick, original chestnut flooring, granite counter tops, six burner gas stove top, an island and sliders leading to expansive decking. Beside the kitchen is the formal dining room for all your family gatherings. Nearby to the main home is the guest cottage with kitchen, full bath and living area. It has a three bay garage, but a six car tandem. The estate is surrounded by mature plantings, set back offering complete privacy. The perfect blend of yesterday and today. If only the walls could talk.
