Hot Property Zen-like oasis on Saugatuck Island with a private beach
Sitting pretty on Westport’s coveted Saugatuck Island, this stunning home is a media darling, having been featured in New England Home, Rooms, Fairfield County Home and the Huffington Post. The stunning interior and incomparable design were the compelling forces that has garnered the residence so much attention.
“Award-winning interior designer Olga Adler transformed this gorgeous home on Saugatuck Island into a sexy retreat,” said listing agent Michelle Genovesi. “Adler’s incredible eye for color and style shine throughout this sophisticated home and in the zen backyard. This is resort living at its best.”
This exclusive waterfront community affords a resort-like lifestyle all year long with two beautiful private beaches and access to a boat launch for weekend adventures on Long Island Sound. The home was completely rebuilt in 2013 and elevated to be FEMA-compliant.
Every element has been custom designed with open living and dining spaces that make entertaining as easy as a day at the beach and radiant heated porcelain tile floors that flow throughout the main level.
From the dramatic entry foyer, sliding white barn doors open to the stylish home theater with a 90-inch movie screen, perfect for accommodating a crowd for movie nights, Oscar parties or the big game. When there’s no need for viewing, open the motorized shades and the space becomes a wonderful sun-drenched living room. Another set of barn doors creates privacy for the adjacent home office with custom built-ins.
Poised under a cathedral ceiling with an expansive skylight, the custom gourmet kitchen is wrapped in gleaming quartz countertops and a glass mosaic backsplash. There is spacious island with 42-inch Kallista prep sink, along with high-end stainless-steel appliances, Dornbracht faucets, a built-in cooking scale, hidden beverage bar and dining area.
Connecting to the kitchen, the striking family room is outfitted with a wall of chic built-ins, a fireplace, walls of windows and glass doors that open to the deck and outdoor entertaining spaces for seamless open air living.
The private backyard offers a zen-like oasis among a stone patio, outdoor fireplace, heated saltwater pool and spa and lush gardens creating an inspiring place to unwind.
On the upper level, the serene master bedroom suite with sitting area affords a tranquil escape at day’s end. The master bathroom is a sanctuary unto itself, graced with soaring vaulted ceilings, skylights, radiant heated floors, a deep soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower with rainshower head and access to the master balcony.
“This is an amazing space, perfect for closing out your day with a moment of rejuvenation,” Genovesi said.
Three more bedrooms are bright and cheery and generously proportioned. One is presently being used as a spectacular dressing room, while another with a wall of built-in bookcases currently serves as a home office.
Solar panels and other eco-friendly features have also been incorporated to create a home that is equal parts gorgeous and green.
