A grand Georgian-style house in Fairfield, Conn., is a masterpiece to look at and live in for sure. But a main selling point is that the in-ground pool and pool house is where the Burt Lancaster shot the 1968 film “The Swimmer.”
The movie, based on a John Cheever short story, is about an ad executive who lives in an affluent suburb.
Now how’s that for some distinction. The house for sale at 5060 Congress St., is also considered the largest home in the town.
It is listed for $4,950,000, says realtor Tara Hawley of Coldwell Banker in Westpost. And, Fairfieldcitizenonline.com notes that it was once part of 120 dairy farm and the estate had once been owned by Roy and Margaret Larsen, who donated much of the land to the Connecticut Audubon Society.
The cabana has a kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom. The famous pool is shown above. The main house has 16 rooms with a master bedroom with his and hers bathrooms and closets.
This listing is through Coldwell Banker in Westport.
