An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 3 Over Rock Lane, off Compo Road South, is in process. Built in 1962, the one-story ranch has 2,191 square feet, is situated on a one-acre property and changed ownership in September for $915,000.  Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission.
