Property Description

Set on ~8 acres of lush rolling lawns, this riverfront estate is nearly impossible to find in Westport. Located only 5 minutes to town center, 12 minutes to Westport train station, and ~50 minutes to New York City, this estate is a one-of-a-kind sanctuary and perfect for families looking to recharge and relax in private without compromising on convenience. With ~6,500 sqft of fabulous living space in THE main house, this is where modern living intersects with New England charm. Key features include brand new 2019 custom designed high-end kitchen with natural quartzite "Taj Mahal" countertops and handcrafted cabinetry for ample storage, all overlooking a wonderful family room with stone fireplace and outside views of the magnificent grounds. Original beams, hardwood floors, and other impressive attention to detail throughout. Gentle stone pathways, magnificent gardens, and gunite pool are surrounded by nature. Other buildings on the property are fabulous carriage house (guest cottage) and an original English Hay Barn built in 1811. This estate dates back to 1763 when it was owned by the Coley Family, which this section of town, Coleytown, was named after. Artist Kerr Eby named the property Driftway in 1925 after purchasing it from world-renowned sculptors James and Laura Fraser, famous residents of Westport and founders of The Fairfield County Hunt Club. Enjoy everything this special property has to offer while being part of Westport's history.
