Car: Recommended

Westport is a beautiful coastal town on the Long Island Sound in Fairfield County, Connecticut, only 47 miles (76 km) northeast of New York City. The town has a population of under 27,000 but features several beaches, Compo Beach being the most famous one, a very nice public golfcourse, and Main Street offers some of the best New York City boutiques. From Westport you can do easy day trips to other coastal towns like Newport, RI, Rowayton, CT, visit New York cit (train takes 60 minutes to Grand Central). You can also visit Yale in New Haven or visit Boston - 3 hours away. In summer though, there is hardly a reason to leave the house: The pool, with guest house, BBQ and beautiful English style garden will keep you very relaxed.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: After 8 years in New York city we wanted a needed a change. Our two girls (8 and 11) have adopted well to Westport - no wonder: In summer it's a beach town, and in winter we're close to ski slopes. Both Marc and I work in NYC - it's a one hour commute by train.

Why the Owner Chose Westport:
We fell in love with the beautifully renovated old house, it's wonderful garden and pool.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Close to the beach, very private property and pool
