hot property Resort-style living in captivating Westport property
Brimming with charm and character, this custom remodeled Nantucket-style home captures the eye with an incredible amount of curb appeal. Boasting over 6,000 square feet of luxury and exceptional privacy in a convenient Westport location, this captivating residence is set on over 4 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, complete with a picturesque pond and footbridge to a private isle, gorgeous Gunite pool and fully equipped pool house.
“Quite possibly the home’s most extraordinary features are the breathtaking grounds and gardens,” listing agent Julie Vanderblue said.
“The current owner is an avid gardener which is evidenced by the beautiful perennial gardens throughout the extensive grounds. And for those who like to entertain, this estate provides an outdoor lifestyle beyond compare. With the stunning pool, pool house, patio and expansive screened porch, you can host a party with 100 or more of your closest friends!”
The outdoor amenities are indeed impressive. The pool house features a kitchen, changing room, bathroom and outdoor shower, plus a large flagstone patio, sizeable hot tub and screened porch with beautiful mahogany floors.
The grounds were one of the features that first attracted the current owners to the property.
“The grounds stood out to us right away,” the owners commented. “I pictured how much fun our kids would have with the pond for fishing and skating and a pool for summer fun. Plus the wildlife and shore birds are amazing to watch. It’s a nature-lover’s paradise!”
The five-bedroom, six-bath home is equally as remarkable from the first step inside the two-story foyer where one’s gaze is immediately brought to a sun-filled copula high above. The magnificent Great Room affords a refreshing space in which to relax and unwind, boasting a stone fireplace as a focal point and double French doors that open to a spectacular screened porch overlooking the pool, pool house and enchanting gardens.
“It is like living in a resort,” the owners add. “Our friends call and ask, ‘Is there room at the inn?’”
The sun-drenched kitchen leaves nothing to be desired among granite countertops, an oversized island, top-of-the-line stainless appliances and two walls of windows that take in the beauty of the glorious surroundings. A butler’s pantry and delightful dining room offer the perfect place for family gatherings.
Just a few steps up are French doors that lead to a spacious living area with two smaller rooms for storage, office space or even a kitchenette, plus a large bedroom with luxurious bath and walk-in closets.
“This is such a versatile area that offers so many options including a guest or in-law suite, or even the perfect spot for grown children moving home after college,” Vanderblue states.
The master bedroom suite is finely appointed with vaulted ceilings, a Juliet balcony overlooking the impeccable grounds, an indulgent bath with soaking tub, shower, double vanities, radiant heated flooring and private water closet and double-sided walk-in closets.
“We just love waking up to sunrises over the pond, seeing the reflection of the pond’s ripples on the bedroom ceiling and enjoying morning coffee on the balcony,” the owner adds.
Three additional spacious bedrooms, two full baths and a laundry area complete the second level.
The unique walk-out lower level is stunning with walls of glass, coffered ceiling, columns, a stone fireplace and second kitchen, creating the perfect space for family gatherings, entertaining, or yet another in-law option.
“It is an amazing indoor/outdoor space and such a great place to hang out,” says the owners.
In addition to the 3-4 car garage, there is a separate entrance on the property with two 8-foot gates that provide access for potentially 10 additional cars. There are also two utility buildings for storage.
