Rockmeadow, Estate of the Day
Rockmeadow is a classic estate in Fairfield, Connecticut. The estate was once owned by legendary American composer Richard Rodgers. The Cameron Clark-designed Colonial sits on 21 acres on manicured green lawns overlooking a spring-fed pond. The property includes a gunite pool, har-tru tennis court, guest house with caretakers cottage and greenhouse.Clark built the home in 1929, and over the years it has been expanded and renovated to include three stories with six bedrooms, large open kitchen and a library with cherry paneling. For the most part the home still reflects classic New England style with only a few glaringly modern touches like the updated kitchen and a modern bathroom with a separate walk-in shower. A few years ago it was listed at $12.95 million but is now listed at $8.35 million.
