WestportNow.com Image
The third oldest house in Westport, built in 1710, has been sold and will be preserved, according to a source knowledgeable about the house at 38 Compo Road North. The house had gained publicity last month when brokers held an open house at the property. (See WestportNow Nov. 29, 2009) The 1-1/4 story antique house has 1,427 square feet and is situated on a one-acre property. The source said the buyers were a couple who had previously expressed interest in the property. They intend to keep the house intact but extend a portion in the back, according to the source.

Westport Featured Prominently in New Novel

WestportNow.com Image
The action takes place in a Westport beach cottage. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
This week’s Publisher’s Weekly describes novelist Cathleen Schine’s latest book, “The Three Weissmanns of Westport,”  as “a little bit 21st-century homage to ‘Sense and Sensibility’and a little bit homecoming to her childhood town of Westport, Conn.”

Schine, a 1971 Staples High School graduate and one of the extended Schine family in Westport, was asked by interviewer Julie Naughton whether the Westport of her childhood influenced the story.

“The town has changed so much since I was growing up,” Schine replied. “My mother sold her house and kept the barn—all around it, these huge houses have gone up. The barn looks like the gardener’s shed now!

“As I was creating the cottage in Westport where Annie, Miranda, and Betty (characters in the book) would live, I was inspired by a house on the beach that my friend was living in.
