Bus pick up at the end of our street for Saugatuck, Bedford and Staples school kids during the school year.
This home is in the heart of the beautiful town of Westport, is perfect to kick back and relax. Our home is comfortable with a great flow from indoors to outside. My children were raised here, family gatherings that spill to the great back yard spring, summer and fall. Touch football all year long (or soccer) on our flat one acre. Outdoor grilling or many nights just looking at the stars and watch the wind in the trees. Summer hear the music from the Levitt Pavillion (or join the fun - its free almost everynight in summer!). Winter snowsled at Winslow Park, Ice Skate at Longshore and it is a must to attend Staples High School Candlelight Service in December!
KITCHEN: Vintage GE P/7 stove. Electric. Everything you need to cook but it is an older home so kitchen reflects the time.
