Real Estate Report: Dwindling Supply of Old Homes

By Judy Szablak

There are relatively few properties that were built prior to 1900 that are still standing in Westport. According to tax data gleaned from the local Multiple Listing Service, and information obtained through the Westport Historical Society, fewer than 500 homes are still in existence that were built prior to 1900.

That figure may seem a little low for a town which has upwards of 8,200 single family residences, but the town has done a good job for many years in preserving whatever antique inventory we have.

The oldest home in town was built in 1685, and is on 187 Long Lots Road. This home has the unique distinction of being the only 17th century single family residence in town.

The 18th century hardly brought a building boom to town, with just 72 homes that are still existing that were built during this period. One noteworthy property which still stands today is at 69 Cross Highway, and its foundation dates back to 1762.
