An impressive private retreat now on the market in Westport, Connecticut, manages to capture the essence of Nantucket, not only in its classic shingle style construction, but also in its idyllic and relaxed waterfront lifestyle. The gracious home resides on two acres right alongside the Saugatuck River, offering expansive decks and patios complete with an outdoor fireplace and breathtaking views of the river and level treed grounds. The 60-foot deepwater dock provides the option to moor a boat, delivering access to plenty of recreational enjoyment out on the water. The property further encourages outdoor living with its oversized 50 by 30 foot heated elliptical swimming pool, just beside the river. It is no exaggeration to suggest that this home at 4 Manitou Road represents coastal living at its very best.
Offered at $5,850,000 through William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, the Colonial-style, wood shingle-roofed residence brings all of that outdoor beauty inside, featuring sun-drenched spaces with airy southwest exposures. With an open floor plan of 12 rooms and 5,976 square feet, the spacious home blends modern comforts with a country chic design, including beamed cathedral ceilings, stone fireplaces, custom cabinetry throughout, hardwood flooring, a library and a wine gallery. With six bedrooms and seven full and two half baths, including two master baths, it is impressive to add that this home also has a bonus studio with its own separate entrance. Other highlights include multi-level decks, porches, full finished basement (recreation room), laundry room, surround sound, security system, central air, outdoor sprinkler system, plus a three-car garage.
Constructed in 2000, the residence also boasts a central location on one of fabulous Westport’s most coveted streets. With such close proximity to town, the home is near the Westport train station, making this property a commuter’s dream for its quick and easy access to Manhattan via Metro-North railroad. Both afternoon sunbathing on Compo Beach and golfing at Longshore Country Club are only a short walk away. Westport offers numerous further benefits as well, including some of the best schools in the country, a renowned summer theater program, and Sound-front parks and beaches with views that sometimes reach all the way to the New York City skyline. The local amenities are incomparable, and combined with the incredible waterfront lifestyle, this is one property that truly answers every desire.
