Imagine looking out over the glass-like surface of a private lagoon, seeing the reflection of a stunning home and realizing it’s your own. It’s a postcard-perfect coastal scene at 5 Langdon Road, where a four-bedroom, three-bath contemporary peacefully resides on the furthest point of Canfield Island, an exclusive gated community in Westport, Conn. Now on the market and listed with Westport agent Susan Vanech for $5,499,000, the luxurious seaside escape offers 360-degree water views that will, indeed, take your breath away from sunrise to sunset.
The classic, light blue shingled home, located on 2.43 acres of prime coastal land, is one of only a few residences on Canfield Island. The property offers total privacy with protected swimming, an outdoor fireplace, two private docks and endless opportunities for sun bathing, diving and navigating your boat towards the beautiful horizon of the Long Island Sound. “Its welcoming atmosphere encourages you to walk the path of the perimeter encircling this exceptional year-round retreat,” comments Vanech. “This home secures its place in the top echelons of significant properties reserved for those with an insatiable appetite for magnificence.”
The splendor continues indoors, with an impressively renovated interior that has transformed this 1965 abode into what Coastal Living Magazine describes in a recent article as “a modern retreat with light walls and a color scheme that uses earthy tones to contrast beautifully with the blue sea and sky outside.” The central living space of the home follows an open-concept layout, boasting bright, airy spaces including a new kitchen with striking wood cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances. An elegant living room, complete with a fireplace and skylights, offers unbeatable formal relaxation, while the residence’s casual family room contains vaulted ceilings, three walls of windows overlooking the water, and convenient outdoor access. Other features include hardwood floors, high ceilings and a brilliant master bedroom and bath overlooking this unrivaled setting on Connecticut’s Gold Coast.
“The view from each window offers an exceptional experience,” adds Vanech. “Whether you are standing on the secluded beach, elevated deck, the dock on the lagoon or the master bedroom’s balcony, tranquility abounds. Don’t let this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity drift away.”
