“Sandbar” is an authentic Nantucket Shingle-style home on the beach in affluent Westport, Connecticut. Built in 2008 with a generous budget, this secluded 4-bedroom waterfront home with incredible water views is exactly the get-away you imagine - and only an hour’s drive from New York City.
The 5567-sf natural wood home is in a gated community of waterfront homes, all accessed by footbridge. The private fenced property opens to a saltwater cove, perfect for wading, boating, more.
The design is natural and simplistic: wood and stone, polished and textured, open and concealed. The luxury is subtle and impressive.
Flawless finishing and expensive furnishings by the original owner builder are very special, and are included!
Water views fill every picture window in the main living area. Fireplaces flank both sides of the room. The mirror over the wood-burning fireplace is actually a TV! Door to the right is to a cozy den and door on left leads to screened porch.
The foyer is intriguing with its curved walls, curved staircase and the mirrored wet bar (which has a door to hide it). The wide glass front door allows for vistas and light.
Expansive Water Views
The living room flows to the dining area to the kitchen conversation area. Natural textures in furniture and construction create a comfortable ambiance. The dining room table divides the 2 sitting areas. Smooth high gloss painted ceilings and walls throughout the house add dimension and contrast to the reclaimed 100-year-old slab oak flooring.
The visionary owner-designer teamed up with notable local craftsmen, including architect Brooke Girty, renowned for her authentic coastal homes. Of special note is the 3-story spiral staircase which mimics a Nautilus shell.
Impressive Custom Kitchen
This kitchen is a thoughtful work of art. Feel the heritage of centuries old homes with the thick marble used for counters with aged brass and polished nickel hardware throughout, with wavy old glass in transoms and cabinetry, vintage restored lighting from France and heavy stone from Belgium.
Luxury kitchen features 2" solid Calacuta marble counters and slab behind the Lacanche gas range. A wall of glossy cabinets reveals 2 refrigerators and freezer drawers. The carefully sourced, hand chosen furnishings and accessories from abroad - most of which are included - make this a truly turn key home.
The stunning pantry features a sink made of German silver, wavy glass in cabinetry, a wine cooler and dishwasher.
Master suite is at the top of the staircase. Sliding glass doors open wide to allow the sounds and smells from the waterfront into the bedroom.
