Honoring the Historic Barn that Spawned a Home

By James Lomuscio

Framed by historic stone walls and with a more than 100-year-old sugar maple tree in the front yard, the 2,700-square foot combination farmhouse/Colonial at Westport’s 158 Hillspoint Road goes on the market today for $1.795 million.

Over the 18th and 19th centuries, this home—which is a stone’s throw from the Mill Pond and an ambitious walk to Compo Beach—has grown up and out, each new section a portal to a different time.

In addition, there is a 300-square foot separate studio replete with a full bath and fireplace behind the house and adjacent to the 12 feet by 30 feet pool.

Westporter David Vynerib, who purchased the home in February for $900,000 to restore and resell it, seems to marvel at every room he walks in, the wood planked floors recently highlighted with walnut stain.

Real Estate Report: Antique Homes in Demand

By Judy Szablak

The market for antique properties in Westport is healthier than most, and there are very few available homes for sale that fit into this category.

WestportNow.com Image

The unofficial definition of an antique, or vintage home is one that is at least 100 years old. Currently, there are only 14 such properties that are available throughout Westport, and four are currently under some stage of deposit.

The lowest priced available home is priced at $425,000 and is on Crescent Road, and the highest priced antique is on Ferry Lane East for $3,998,000. The average size is almost 3,600-square feet, and the average sale price for the 21 homes that sold within the last year is $1,913,857.

Many of these homes carry with them a very special part of Westport history, and inventory is tighter than it has been for quite some time.
