About Erle Lutzky

I am a Jack of all trades Master of All who came to this country as a student Ions ago. Originally an actress I segwayed into a couple of different carreers, but am now back to acting, writing and directing. Travelling a lot because of work I am open to share my little Shangri La with you!

Erle Lutzky purchased this farmhouse in 1993

Why Erle Lutzky chose Fairfield County

I fell in love with this property because of the sense of history and warmth it excudes. I saw it the first time a late afternoon in November in pouring rain and knew the minute I walked in that my search was over. The very important aspect was the proximity to Manhattan where I was working at the time. I loved that I could walk out w/my coffee in my nightgown and in one hour and fifteen min be at my desk in Bloomingdale's advertizing!

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Aspetuck Corners was a gathering place for artists and intellectuals back in the twenties and Louis Pfeiffer (a wealthy industrialist from the city) who owned most of the properties at the time, restored and beautified the whole area. Hemingway who was married to his niece Pauline Pfeiffer (his second wife), is supposed to have finished 'A Farewell to Arms' in this house.

We are ten minutes from serious shopping and beaches in Westport as well as in Fairfield and there are public golf courses everywhere.

Perfect place for a Family Rreunion

  • 5 of 5

It would be hard to find a more lovely and historic setting to reunite 4 generations than this Connecticut home. From the moment you step out of your car you feel at home. The feeling continues as you move into Erle's magical house. The lovely entry, the delightful kitchen, looking towards the "Old Toy Factory" across the road, the large living room and the cozy den provide places for families to either be together or separate for reading and other activities. This property has a large yard with a river running through it and plenty of room to roam or just sit and enjoy the sounds and sights of the Connecticut country side. If you look into the history of the neighborhood you will discover even more things to make your stay memorable. Thank you Erle for providing such a wonderful place for our family reunion.

Such a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay in Erle's sweet farmhouse for 3 weeks while we were relocating. Erle has created a really cosy, comfortable home, fully equipped with everything you can possibly need for a relaxing stay. We felt very welcome, like visiting family!

The weather was great so the children enjoyed swimming in the stream and playing in the garden.

We loved the convenience of farm fresh eggs from around the corner and enjoyed exploring the Aspetuck Land Trust hiking trails in the area.

Thank you Erle for making our stay so memorable!
