We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Fairfield was established as a town in 1635. Pleasant, unpretentious place. Wiki says:
In July 2006, Money Magazine ranked Fairfield the ninth "best place to live" in the United States, and the best place to live in the Northeast. This is primarily due to its affluence, low crime rate with only three homicides in the last five years  , excellent public school system, suburban character, scenic location on the Long Island Sound, and proximity to New York City. The town was also listed among the "preppiest" places in the United States in the tongue-in-cheek 1980s best-seller The Official Preppy Handbook.
It considers itself the "dogwood capital of the world," and each spring a Dogwood Festival takes place in the Greenfield Hill neighborhood.
This handsome place is just off the Boston Post Road (which is the Main St. for most CT shoreline towns). It was build in 1791, now in the historic district.
The listing is here, with the details. I see the asking price is creeping downwards, now asking 1.3
You need to up the marketing campaign. You could pitch it as the site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, or near it. Certainly you can find someone who would believe that, such as an old hippie who fried his brain from too many acid trips, or some younger upstanding example of our educational system [certainly not one whom your wife taught].
Or you could stretch the truth a little less and pitch your house as near the Woodstock Fair. Which it is, as the Woodstock Fair is in Woodstock. Everyone rembers the Woodstock Fair- that was where 400,000 youth and musicians banded together in the countryside for a four-day peace and love-in. Country Joe and the Fish, you name it, they were all at the Woodstock Fair.
While I have been to the Woodstock Fair, I didnít make it to the Woodstock Festival. Altamont had to do that year.
Two from my town made it to Woodstock. A classmate who became an artist who has exhibited in NYC got depressed by the scene, and ended up drawing a lot of feet. A guy a year younger ended up as a cop in a nearby town. Cause and effect?
LOL!! True story. When we lived in the farm house up the hill, we invited some of our high school friends down for a semi-reunion get together. A couple of them were ...um... products of the '60s but had not attended the Woodstock festival. Anyway, when they arrived, they kept looking around at the fields and what not and finally one asked me "Dude - where was the stage". I said "Wrong Woodstock - Yasgur's Farm is in Woodstock, NY". He was disappointed. :>)
The really odd thing is I get asked that question all the time. There are thirteen Woodstocks in the US - always wanted to know if the citizens of those towns get asked the same question.
So is it 1800 SF + the basement? I miss basements. They would be nice and cool in a TX summer. Lordy, lordy, would they be cool. [At least in comparison to 105 degrees outside.]
Coincidentally, the year before the Famous Woodstock [NY] Festival, an English teacher at our high school took a busload of students to see a play at the Woodstock in NY.
Some members of the track team chose to go to the play in Woodstock NY instead of to a track meet. The coach & Senior History Teacher, in his first year teaching at the school but an experienced teacher, kicked them off the track team for having chosen a play over a track meet. The month before, I had quit the track team when he required haircuts, a requirement that was new to the track team. That was the first and last year he coached track.
I imagine the other 12 Woodstocks get asked the same question. After all, yours does. Of course, it is easier to make a mistake one state over than a thousand miles away.
