      A once in a generation opportunity to own a very rare & special parcel. This Newtown estate holds a unique place in Connecticut lore. It has an active, licensed 2,400' private airstrip/heliport - hence the property's name, “Flying Ridge”. It is the only remaining private airstrip in Fairfield County, grandfathered since it's original registration in the 1940's, by its original owner, the family of the late Robert Edison Fulton, Jr., an inventor, adventurer, and pilot. The current owner, also an avid aviator, has recently performed renovations and updates creating options for farming, horses, and a unique family compound. This property is truly one of a kind. Tucked away amidst rolling hills on 33 acres, it sits atop a ridge with unspoiled farmland to its east and wetlands to its west. The estate comprises a main house with a 40'x30' cathedral ceiling great room, an airstrip house and observation tower, workshop dwellings and barns. The N-S (35/17) half mile grass runway is suitable for fixed-wing single engine aircraft, as well as helicopters. The property is located 48 nautical miles northeast of Manhattan's lower east side heliport, approximately a 20 minute drive to Waterbury-Oxford airport and 40 minute drive to Westchester County airport, and an hour to Greenwich, Litchfield, and Yale University. Flying Ridge combines these unique commuting advantages with the elegance of country life in an unspoiled, charming rural CT community that has excellent services and schools.
