About the property

Quiet 3 acre+ property with resort facilities and 7 min drive to Metro North

** Now accepting bookings for Summer 2019 and the 2018 Holidays (full week minimum) **

Looking for a resort-style escape? Our newly and fully furnished home with modern, textured comfort and style is the perfect choice for you. Tucked away on the end of a private road, the sun-filled property is spread across 3+ acres of stunning landscaping (+relaxing views of acres of protected wetlands), a heated gunite pool, new tennis court, stone patios and brand new deck. A perfect place to recharge, enjoy nature's beauty or entertain with style, Turkey Ridge will not disappoint! 4 bedrooms and 3-full baths comfortably sleeps 8 and can expand to 10 with a pull out couch in the home office. The property is ablaze with the turning leaves in the Fall, budding perennials in the Spring and Summer, and snow dusted hills and foliage in the Winter. Minutes off the Post Road, downtown Westport and Compo beach. Greens Farms train station is just a quick 5-minute ride away.

The home is built into the landscape, so there's plenty of flow and private nooks on the property. On the ground level is the spacious eat-in kitchen - with windowed breakfast nook complete with round table for 6 and two club chairs - features granite countertops, carrera marble backsplash, 2 sinks, island with 2 counter seats, top of the line appliances, and a brick fireplace. The cushioned window reading nook overlooking hydrangeas is a quiet spot to curl up with a page turner. Everything a chef may desire is at your fingertips: stand-up kitchen aid mixer, electric kettle for bottomless cups of tea, cast iron skillet, dutch oven, sous vide, panini press, cuisinart, 2 blenders, and an abundance of stylish entertaining ware.

Off the kitchen is a lovely furnished stone patio with a Weber BBQ and the Big Green Egg for the grilling enthusiasts. Adjoining the kitchen is a sun drenched open living room with 15 foot loft ceilings, 2 skylights and a wall of windows. Relax in style on cozy Jonathan Adler furniture and in an updated mid century modern aesthetic. Behind the fireplace is a dining room that seats 8 with beautiful contemporary artwork and a bar nook.

Step down to the sun lit lower floor family room that opens to the spacious raised deck overlooking the protected wetlands and shaded tennis court. Guest room (queen bed) with bay window and tree-house-feel is also on the lower level along with a full bathroom and a sunny laundry room which opens to the flat lawn with see saw and climbing dome for the young at heart. Adjoining the family room, French doors open to a jewel-toned home office with solid wood desk, printer-fax-scanner and comfy sofa (sofa can convert to queen sofabed with airdream sub mattress). Adjacent play/media room (newly renovated in July 2017).

Upper level includes the master bedroom (king) with en suite master bath (jet tub, his and hers sinks and separate glass shower), spacious kids room (2 twins), another guest room (queen) and full bath. Views from the upper level rooms sweep over the landscaped pool area, protected wetlands, tennis court and acres of tulip and Japanese maple trees.

The pool area includes table for 4 in a shaded corner, cushioned 3 seater couch, 2 cushioned side chairs, hammock surrounded by seagrass and blooming lilies, 2 lounge chaises and 2 large outdoor umbrellas. Walk down the dramatic stone steps from the pool area to the private shaded tennis court surrounded by variegated hostas, lamb's ear plantings and blooming ajuga. Raised stone patio with table and 4 chairs adjoins the tennis court. External landscape lighting in the evening.

Enjoy Contemporary artwork in every room.

About Josh

We are an energetic family of four (including 2 young children) who live in the Upper West Side of NYC and escape to Turkey Ridge when we can. We love exploring all the nooks of the property and enjoying all things Westport has to offer - beach, outdoor sports, farmers market in the summer, outdoor concerts and more!

Warm gracious home on beautiful property with very generous, gracious responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, a total of 9 people including grandparents, parents and 3 children, ages 2, 4 1/2 and 15 enjoyed a most wonderful week in Westport, CT (where we used to live), celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. This beautiful home met all of our needs including a fabulous children's playroom equipped with tons of toys and dress-up costumes to thrill the two little ones. The large, well-equipped kitchen was a great place to cook together and share meals. Bedrooms were comfortable and both the master and the lower level guest room had large beautiful windows to appreciate the spectacular views outside. The linen closets were filled with everything we needed and the directions left by the owners were clear and provided all the information we needed. A large comfy media room with expansive seating, well-designed comfortable living room, separate cozy office with a pull-out bed and lovely dining room provided much ample space for all to use and enjoy. The owners were extremely responsive when we did need to check in with them and could not have been more gracious! We look forward to renting this lovely home on extraordinarily beautiful property in the future. Though we were there in late November, we could still appreciate the end of Fall and the remaining colorful leaves. Equipped with a pool and tennis court, a stay in the summer would be truly ideal though even in the Fall, we could appreciate the beauty of this magnificent property. Highly recommend this very special multi-level unique home.

Great place in private, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Well stocked place in a beautiful park like setting! Owner met us to show us around and answered any/all questions and was available by text for any additional questions. The property is beautiful and well maintained. It comfortably slept 10! The downstairs playroom was awesome and there were plenty of toys for girls and boys to keep them entertained!! The pool was inviting and heated and we made good use of it daytime and evenings! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
