Enjoy beautiful views of the river from almost every room of this renovated historical home. A unique gem, lovingly filled with tranquil places to relax, read, eat and play. A magical setting for a very distinctive home with antique beams and cathedral ceilings in the living room and architectural windows throughout the home. Original art, handmade rugs and fine furnishings compliment the setting. Enjoy the screened in sun porch that gives you a birds-eye view of the herons, ducks and native wildlife as they pass by. The river is stocked with trout by State of CT, so fishing from your back yard is an option. This light-filled home has a master bedroom that opens up to the sun porch. In the evening, lie outside beneath the old pine trees at night or watch the moonlight and stars flitter through your bedroom skylights. Enjoy the changing hues of the river as night falls and you catch fireflies that bring back memories of simpler times.

Weston is a residential community in Southwestern Connecticut, about 45 miles from New York City, with a population of approximately 10,150 residents; a hamlet and bedroom town for NYC. Almost one quarter of Weston is permanently devoted to open space. Whether the northern Nature Conservancy - Lucius Pond Ordway - Devil's Den containing 1,765 acres, or Katherine Ordway Preserve containing 60 acres on the east side of Weston, or 645 acres of Aspetuck Land Trust sprinkled around the Town, every neighborhood claims some piece of recreational land nearby.

My story: 2-3 MONTH RARE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN MY HOME: My property isn't a vacation rental--it's my full-time home! As such, it offers a lot more than what you usually find elsewhere. Nothing on the property was purchased with the thought that 'this will be good enough for our renters.' Everything in my home was hand chosen to make my life more rewarding. I live and work from my home so I love it. However, this summer I have an opportunity for significant travel so I hope this will provide an exclusive opportunity for another family to live in and enjoy the benefits of my Weston home with all the amenities of Westport. One of my favorites and not to be missed is watching the sunsets at Westport beach. .
