Real Estate Report: Coleytown and Compo Most Active

By Judy Szablak

The most active markets for new construction in Westport are in the Coleytown and Compo Beach neighborhoods. Currently, 22 of the 57 newly built homes are in these two areas.

WestportNow.com Image

Interestingly, though, the Hunt Club area has had a highest turnover rate in the last year for new home sales, which may very well be a product of the available land in that area, or the number of opportunities for builders to tear down and rebuild.

Combined, the Greens Farms, Coleytown and Compo Beach areas comprised almost 40 percent of all new construction sales in the last year, and together with the Hunt Club, made up nearly two-thirds of all new construction sales in town.

Does that indicate that one area, or that these few specific areas are that much in demand? Certainly, a newly built home in Westport has a great amount of appeal, however there is only so much property.

Max’s Readies for Aug. 31 Farewell

By James Lomuscio

With most of the store’s inventory gone and a closing date set for Aug. 31 after 59 years in Westport, owner Shirley Mellor sat at her desk today in the rear of Max’s Art Supplies, 68 Post Road East, and thought about the past and her future.

WestportNow.com Image

Well wishes, nostalgia and raw sentiment from the few customers near the the register echoed off the pressed-tin ceiling to where Mellor sat surrounded by tangible memories, most of them framed.

One was a stately painting her her late husband Max Kaplan who founded the store, once an iconic meeting place for scores of nationally known artists. Also surrounding Mellor’s office was original artwork from syndicated cartoonists who 1979 wished Kaplan a happy 65th birthday, “Max’s coming of age party,” Mellor said.

And there was the huge 1981 black and white photograph of the once famed arts community’s legends in front of the store for its 25th anniversary.

Real Estate Report: Old Hill Area Prized Neighborhood

By Judy Szablak

Among Westport’s most prized neighborhoods is an inherently charming area known as Old Hill, which has been a favorite in town for many years.

There are a number of vintage or antique homes located here, with some dating back to the Revolutionary and Victorian eras.

However, some magnificently designed newer homes also dot the landscape.

Less than 10 percent of the 322 homes that are on the market town-wide are in this neighborhood, yet only seven homes that are currently available here are less than 10 years old.
