A Fairfield County mansion that was once home to children’s book authors and illustrators Robert and Marie Lawson has hit the market for $3.299 million, according to Mansion Global. The 10,560-square-foot Georgian Colonial in Westport known as Rabbit Hill was constructed in 1936 but has since been “extensively renovated and expanded,” the outlet reported. The home itself sits on 5.66 acres and comes with a pool and a three-car garage. Robert Lawson wrote award-winning children’s books “They Were Strong and Good” and “Rabbit Hill” and illustrated books including “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” and “The Story of Ferdinand.” [Mansion Global]
