Fairfield, Conn. (PRWEB) April 02, 2015
William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed the Fairfield Beach area home of former World No. 4 tennis player James Blake in Fairfield, Conn. Southport agent Craig Oshrin has the listing, which is offered at $799,000.
According to the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Blake’s career highlights include achieving status as the World No. 4 player and No. 1 American player in 2006, reaching the Tennis Masters Cup final that same year, finishing the Beijing Olympics in fourth place and making the quarterfinals in the Australian Open in 2008, delivering a strong performance in the US Open quarterfinals in 2005 and 2006, and helping the US to win the Davis Cup title in 2007. Blake was honored by the ATP with the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year award in 2008 for his support for cancer research. He retired from professional tennis in 2013.
Blake’s gated, completely fenced cul-de-sac residence in Fairfield is located within walking distance of town as well as Fairfield Beach. Featuring hardwood flooring and millwork throughout, the two-level home offers four bedrooms and three baths in total, as well as a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile accents and granite countertops. A large detached two-car garage, formerly used as a gym, accommodates extra storage space.
“This home formerly owned by a world-class tennis player is a must-see for the buyer seeking a combination of privacy, security and an outstanding beach area location,” said Oshrin. “In addition, this gem is ideal for the owner who loves to entertain, featuring a beautiful stone patio that is perfect for summer gatherings and barbeques.”
