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.

House in need of cleainng and maintenance.

  • 1 of 5

First, I've contacted the owner about all the issues but received no response, the people she left in charge were not able to assist either.

On arrival, the house was dirty and dusty all over, with cobwebs and dust over all lamps and surfaces, dust bunnies on the floors. Dead flowers on the table and dishes that all had to be rewashed. Granted that the house is old, but most of the plush furniture is soiled and in need of repairs. Then we discovered small pieces of broken glass all over the coffee table. Turns out there also was broken glass on the rug in the dining room, I stepped on it and injured my foot. The owner left the number for the cleaning lady, I called her describing the condition of the house and she said that she cleaned the house 6 months ago and not since. All the bedding was old and stained, I do hope it was washed before we got there. The owner said that before we were getting there she was fixing a leak from upstairs bathroom into the kitchen and assured me it's all going to be fixed and mold remediated, Guess what, when we used upstairs bathroom, the water leaked into the kitchen - MOLD! and I specifically expressed concern about that. That was not all, a couple of days after we arrived, we started having prolonged periods of time with no water at all, so you could not take shower in the morning and could not predict when it would appear again and if it would. We called the man she left in charge, he said he'll call plumber to fix it - but no luck. We came to CT to spend time with family and to relax not to clean and maintain someone elses house after paying good money. We travel extensively utilizing VRBO, this is by far the worst experience we've ever had. At least if we were in a place where there were issues, owners were always very responsive about fixing it and making it right.

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!
