Hot property Five-bedroom home on 1.5 wooded acres in a private enclave

November 17, 2018

For the past 30 years, the striking modern home that sits on Dogwood Lane has been host to a fun-filled lifestyle with numerous gatherings for celebrations, creating a wealth of happy memories for its homeowners.

Moments to the beach, town and train, this private enclave is one of Westport’s most charming and centrally located neighborhoods with a 16-acre park and nature preserve tucked away at its center. A treasure hidden from the hustle bustle of Westport, Haskins Preserve encompasses woods, meadows, ponds, walking trails and abundant wildlife where nature lovers can enjoy a peaceful walk through the serene sanctuary.

Set on 1.5 private wooded acres, this light-filled home has been completely reimagined for today’s buyer, featuring a wide array of amenities that cater to comfortable living, entertaining and recreation.

“Summer here feels like a vacation resort,” said listing agent Linda Delepine, noting that the heated Gunite pool and cabana, along with an all-weather tennis/sports court offers ample enjoyment for all ages. The cabana includes a full bath and kitchen area for great summer entertaining.

Co-listing agent Laurie Crouse agrees.

“The lovely, natural setting welcomes all visitors to this feel-good home,” Crouse said. “The open floor plan encourages everyone to be connected with one another and flows easily from one space to the next.”

Stepping inside, guests are greeted by soaring ceilings, skylights and walls of windows, creating a bright and airy atmosphere that brings the beauty of the outdoors right in. Hardwood floors span throughout the living and dining areas, graced with a wet bar and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace — one of four fireplaces that keep the home warm and cozy on the coldest of winter nights.

The newly remodeled kitchen is an absolute delight among an island with breakfast bar, caesarstone counters, stainless steel appliances. It is open to the family room with fireplace for ease of entertaining and connectedness. A private office or library also features a fireplace and is lined with built-ins.

The living areas include a glorious sunroom and open to the wraparound deck with sunken hot tub, just steps away from the main level master suite for a relaxing soak before bed.

The home offers the flexibility of having both an upstairs and downstairs master suite. The first-floor master suite has a new dressing room/closet area and new bath with Restoration Hardware fixtures.

Four additional bedrooms are all located on the upper level. Each enjoys its own en-suite bath, for ample privacy. Additional features include a two-car attached garage and full basement.

“This is a great house on a sweet street, with a long driveway to ride bikes and play basketball when you’re not out on the tennis court/sports court, or soaking the day away in the hot tub. It’s paradise!” says Delepine.
