Original beams, hardwood floors, and other impressive attention to detail throughout. Gentle stone pathways, magnificent gardens, and gunite pool are surrounded by nature. Other buildings on the property are fabulous carriage house (guest cottage) and an original English Hay Barn built in 1811. This estate dates back to 1763 when it was owned by the Coley Family, which this section of town, Coleytown, was named after. Artist Kerr Eby named the property Driftway in 1925 after purchasing it from world-renowned sculptors James and Laura Fraser, famous residents of Westport and founders of The Fairfield County Hunt Club. Enjoy everything this special property has to offer while being part of Westport's history.
