About the owner: I have enjoyed the community immensely. Since moving here for work many years ago my children and I count this as our home. We all dive and travel far and wide for our ocean experiences. Coming home, I love to walk Compo Beach. Year round. We take in the sea, fresh air and then retire to our home for nature at its best. Coyote, Deer including big daddy with a rack, hawk, fox and an array of spring birds to watch.
Why the Owner Chose Westport: Westport is our home port. It has community, the arts, summer sand and sea. We keep a boat here to enjoy the water. Our neighborhood is just amazing, wonderful families and a wide range of young uns'. Even though mine are moving to their next phase, coming home is special because of this community.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Fire in the fireplace, two months to spring and summer days follow.. Copper Beach Trees grace our front and side yard. Spectacular specimens. Even our tree people were in awe of their bark and beauty. Two Japanese Maples are counter points to the Copper Beach trees. We now are sending a specimen to the American Chestnut Foundation as we believe we have two of these rare trees....stay tuned. The natural setting backing on to our property is amazing for an 'in town' home. Our winter brought 23 solidly fed turkeys to our lawn to feast on beech and chestnuts, a beautiful red fox just this morning walked the parameter, blue jays, cardinals and an array of other winged friends are here and much more visible with the trees without foliage.
Walk to town, rest in the private world that is your back yard.....enjoy a change of venue, if just for a moment.
