Honoring Our Heritage: 30 Charcoal Hill Road

WestportNow.com Image
The newest recipients of an historical plaque from the Westport Historical Society (WHS) are the owners of the house at 30 Charcoal Hill Road. Matt Magsig, his wife Lily and daughter Charli, 19 months, moved into the house in May 2014. It was built by architect Frazier Peters in 1930 and is known as the Frazier Peters House. The plaque was presented by Bob Weingarten, WHS house historian. He said of the 41 Westport houses that have been documented as designed by Frazier Peters, “this house is especially significant in that it was Peters’ own house, his actual residence.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Real Estate Report: Westport Mirrors National Trends

By Judy Szablak

The most recent S&P/Case-Shiller Price Index points out a lack of inventory across the country along with slower price appreciation. This sounds a lot like Westport’s real estate market.

Lower than average inventory coupled with stricter lending standards appears to have had an impact on single family home appreciation in November.

Matching the expectations of many analysts, the 20 metropolitan areas saw gains that mirrored October 2007 at 4.3 percent,  as compared to a 4.5 percent annual increase in October.

Although Chairman David Blitzer felt that “prospects for a home run in 2015 aren’t good,” we have already seen the market pick up ever so slightly in Westport, and initial deposits are on the rise, as are multiple bids on properties in certain price pockets.

Real Estate Report: Time to Prepare for Spring Market

By Judy Szablak

It may seem a bit early to prepare for the spring market in Westport, but don’t let this valuable time pass you by without taking full advantage of the forthcoming busy real estate season. It will happen upon us sooner than you might think.

If you are selling your home, consider hiring a building inspector to uncover any unforeseen issues that a buyer would inevitably uncover, and fix them prior to your home going on the market. This could save you a lot of lost time, not to mention money. 

It is also a good idea to take this opportunity to de-clutter your home in preparation for going on the market, and among other things, paint if necessary.

There is nothing worse than becoming painfully aware that you were ill-prepared for the perfect time to place your home for sale, and then coming to the realization that your lack of action has wound up placing your home just “behind the market.”

Landmark Status Sought for Baron’s Mansion

By James Lomuscio

For 17 years, the Baron’s house has been empty, filled with only memories and myths, not to mention books stored for the Westport Library’s book sales.

Located at 68 Compo Road South on the town-owned 23-acre Baron’s South property, the two-story, 1959 brick Colonial Revival mansion was the home of the late Austrian Baron Walter Langer Von Langendorff and his British wife Evelyn Diane, founders in the mid-1940s of Evyan Perfumes.

Evyan was the first American perfume company to rival French perfumeries with its White Shoulders, now produced by Elizabeth Arden, and Golden Shadows scents.

Now, two Westport preservationists want the town to designate the home dubbed Golden Shadows a Local Historic Landmark Property.
