Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Bob and I lived in Chelsea and worked in Manhattan when we became weekenders in Westbrook. Bob, an architect and sculptor, designed and built an artist's studio for himself which was completed in 2003. Since retiring and moving to Westbrook year round, we rebuilt the main house while we lived in the studio. It was such a unique experience that we decided to share the studio with guests during the warmer months of the year (May - November). It's been great fun for us, and we have enjoyed sharing it with visitors from all over the world. Our visitors have enriched our lives as well as theirs!

Why the Owner Chose Westbrook Center, Westbrook, CT, USA:
We were looking for a location on a salt marsh where 'life begins'. The five acres provided a place where Bob could pursue his passion for sculpting outdoors and Ilsa, an avid cook, could pursue her passion and grow our own produce. The site provided space for almost everything that we could dream of. We built a 75' by 5' raised bed vegetable garden and an artist's studio. An open meadow is the home of sculptures and wildflowers. This is truly a place to live with nature...but we do miss Manhattan!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'It's just one of a kind'!
