Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My love and appreciation for nature came from growing up 'rural' - in VT, NH, and a 'dash' of suburban life in the Boston, MA. area.... which included spending summers with extended family in Westport, MA. This land has been in the family for over 100 years and we consider it a gift to preserve and manage it carefully so family, friends and guests can enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility today, as well as for generations to come. For over 25 years I've administered education and community gardening outreach programs at NYC Botanic Gardens and currently help create and maintain micro-farms and gardens for schools, residential and apartment properties and green corridors connecting neighborhoods. In my spare time I love to quilt.

Why the Owner Chose Westport, MA, USA:
The land has been in the family for 100+ years. The sun-filled house looks out onto a wrap around wild flower field, perennial gardens, ancient stone walls and a beautiful, old barn. Enjoy peace and quiet and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Westport and Westport Point is a secret get-away ....far from the clamor of Cape Cod crowds and traffic. Here is where the natural beauty and integrity of woodland, open fields and stunning water ways have remained intact thanks to forward-thinking community who long advocated for a good balance of land use with land preservation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
20 minute walk to Historic Westport Point and Lee's Wharf. Easy 5 minute access by car/20 minute by bike, to Horseneck Beach (State, Town & Private access) and marshland walks; quiet and very relaxing; a place to build year-to-year memories, to connect with nature and to rejuvenate completely.
