Located on the idyllic shores of the Westport River, and set upon some 50 plus acres of fields, stone walls, and open space, this one-of-a-kind waterfront estate is an extraordinary example of architectural splendor and exceptional living. Atop an elevated bluff allowing expansive views of the river and the Atlantic Ocean, the home is hidden from view except at great distances; even then, it offers only a small glimpse of its astonishing grandeur.
Accessed by a treelined canopy-covered, crush-stoned drive, the short trip is the first of many pleasant experiences when entering onto an estate which boasts picturesque views of dancing wildlife, rich smells of summer, and the feeling of peacefulness.
On arrival to the hill where the home sits, a stately watch-tower is the first image to emerge, followed by immaculate rooflines which slowly begin to rise along the horizon. As each second passes, the masterful design and crafted exterior fill your line of sight, until a complete perspective of the nearly 7000 square foot home causes pause and astonishment.
Homes of this caliber are usually described as opulent, but in this case, the word art-form is more accurate when describing the property in totality. Extraordinarily handsome, from the front and the back, there isn’t a location more stunningly beautiful.
The manor is unmatched by all standards; within a farm-like setting accompanied by a crystal-clear pool and access to a pool house within the home. This is an amenity few properties offer but is considered a high standard of convenience.
Privacy surrounds the property and allows the uninterrupted pleasure of experiencing a sense of well-being, accompanied by unparalleled opportunities to connect with family, friends or guests. In a relaxed and secure environment, the compound will become the foundation of fond memories and traditions, all of which will be passed onto future generations by the new owners.
Westport is part of a string of communities tied to a coastline called home to a long list of travelers and adventurers who are drawn to the area by the miles of sandy beaches, acres of farmland, and villages incorporated not long after the country was discovered.
Affluence abounds, with its summer season resident’s diaries filled with cocktail celebrations, and the sharing of community events into the late Indian Summer of September and October. For the summer population, there is an open, come-as-you-are, invitation combined with the assurance of privacy and discretion all year long if you decide to linger.
The quaint vistas, magnificent history, and countless improvements made by local business owners in adjacent townships create an abundance of extracurricular activities which include; new restaurants,
watering holes, designer boutiques and art galleries. All within a short distance, and each with individual qualities, each will meet the standards of new arrivals who insist on the best, and possess the most refined tastes.
The meticulously manicured grounds are only an appetizer to the indulging interior. With an efficient powerplant for optimal operation of the estate and uninterrupted functioning of utilities, the sense of well-being while in residence or away is never a concern.
From the homes many rooms, with a colonnade entry to an open
floor plan tying together the kitchen (with top-of-the-line appliances), a dining room with breathtaking views, and living space that is
enveloped in serenity, to its water access, there is nothing to long for—only a satisfying experience of indulgence.
The residence is surrounded by expansive decks and balconies all of which take in the unparalleled views of nature. Most fitting for a property of this extravagance is the two large barns which could be used as a boat-house, to store a car collection, or serve as workshops or artist studios.
Throughout the home, there is evidence that thoughtful
consideration went into its planning and building of this well-
proportioned structure. Position, views, interior, and exterior
elements and materials were carefully selected leaving nothing
to chance or allow short-cuts to be taken.
Upon close inspection of this country waterfront estate, the word iconic comes to mind, most noticeably because a property of such
sophistication in any other desirable summer waterfront location could be priced as high—if not exceed, $40 million.
With an asking price of $6.9 million this offering appears to be an outstanding value; considering it’s pristine condition, due to the loving care which has gone into keeping this valuable asset in perfect condition, makes it one of the most desirable homes in a stable of outstanding properties in the realm of luxurious living on the coast of New England.
