Experience a lifestyle unlike any other in this waterfront estate that offers unrivaled views and unmatched luxuries to create a home ideal for grand entertaining as well as sublime family living. Commanding 5.56 acres in the exclusive coastal hamlet of Southport Village, the property encompasses four lots with 350 feet of highly coveted shoreline along Long Island Sound. The historic allure of New England’s storied past remains in Southport, where tree-lined streets and stately homes provide a glimpse into a bygone era and encourage residents to enjoy life at a more relaxed pace.
Set against the timeless appeal of this charming district, the sprawling 15,777-square-foot residence was completed in 2005 and is appointed with the finest conveniences, fixtures and finishes imaginable. The six-bedroom open design features soaring ceilings and walls of windows throughout, allowing an abundance of natural light and endless views to fill each space. Complementing the handsome wood-paneled library is an exquisite four-season solarium with a glass ceiling that capitalizes on sunlit days and starry nights.
Notable accouterments within the two-story layout include a fitness center, wine cellar and a golf simulator loft. The view-inspired kitchen is generously arrayed with ample work and storage space, top-of-the-line appliances, large butler’s pantry and an island that easily seats seven.
Particularly noteworthy is the 1930s boathouse, revitalized to include a full kitchen, living room and bath. A 195-foot pier extends sightlines further into the harbor. Privately situated behind lush mature landscaping are an infinity swimming pool, cabana and tennis court.
Enviably situated at the mouth of Southport Harbor, this scenic offering is arguably one of the largest and most distinguished estates of its kind in Connecticut. Offered at $19,500,000.
