Farrell Moving to Easton

It’s moving day for former Westport First Selectwoman Diane Farrell, now a director of the Export-Import Bank of the United States in Washington.

Farrell’s Weston Road home has been on the market for some time, but she closed on the sale Thursday, according to The Advocate of Stamford.

It said she and her husband Win have bought a house in Easton.

“We are in Washington five days a week and the children are now happily out of the home. It seems like an appropriate time,” Farrell said. She said she intends to return to Connecticut on weekends and holidays.
