About the Property
2.2 acres of fire pit, canoeing, hammock and garden indulgence
With five bedrooms five and half baths, endless overstuffed couches and outdoor lounge areas, there are fewer more comfortable places to live and entertain. Next door to Burying Hill Beach, a five minute walk to the Greens Farms Metro north station, right off exit 18 on I95 North and a 15 minute bike ride into the quint town of Southport, you could not ask for a more centrally located yet off the beaten path property.
The home is beautifully curated with the most comfortable and elegant furniture and art collection. Pipe music from the library to the cabana and pool for dance parties and watch the sail boat races from the hill with cocktail from the cabana mini fridge in hand.
The property is planted with grapes and fruit trees that yield mid summer. The generator ensures power is never lost and the two car garage keeps your toys safe. Have a boat? The house comes with an 18’ boat slip at Campo Beach - a marina three miles away included with your rental.
Renters will need to sign a written rental agreement and potentially submit for a background check prior to being approved.

The property is located right on the coast of Westport very close to the town centers of Southport and Westport. The property feels worlds apart surrounded by 2 acres of landscaped bliss with hammocks, fire pit, pool and sound views but is incredibly close to shopping and easy access to NYC. The Greens Farms Train Station is less than half a mile away and is an easy five minute walk. I95 is around the corner and the Bridgeport ferry to Long Island is a ten minute drive away.
Ten minutes drive takes you into Weston and Easton where there are beautiful orchards, reservoirs and beautiful woods to explore.
About: The photo above is of Louise Levin AKA Mamma Levin the owner of the house. She ran the house more like a bed and breakfast for the community than a private family home. The entire time we spent growing up in the house it would constantly change as she viewed the space as her blank palette. From salons for visiting dignitaries to musicians and all the festivities associated with being a teenager the house was always alive with energy. The furniture, art and all of the design nuances are indicative of all of the love and magic that happened.
Why Westport, CT, USA:
45 minutes from New York but a world away. It is country living without having to be entirely disconnected from the vibrancy and energy of the city. Our family loves the water, culture and peace and quiet - here we were able to have it all.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
You cant quite beat swinging on the hammock with a fire in the fire pit in the background and watching the sail boat races on Wednesday night. The wind chimes, trees and birds make you feel like your hours outside of any big city in the countryside but NYC is only 45 minutes away.
