An Enchanting Victorian Harkening to ‘Gilmore Girls’ Lists in Southport, CT
Though set in fictional Stars Hollow, Gilmore Girls captures the essence of the idyllic Connecticut town. In true Stars Hollow fashion, this Victorian offers classic New England charm, as well as walkability to the shops and restaurants of historic Southport Village. Initially constructed in 1868 by architects Lambert & Bunnell, the home holds much 19th-century architectural beauty, and was recently updated by David Scott Parker Architects. Now, the enchanting house is for sale asking $3.45 million.
Amidst a landscape of historic Colonials and Greek Revival houses, this ornate Victorian listing stands out on the Connecticut market. The regal 5,781-square-foot home offers generously sized rooms with intricate details. Imported mahogany moldings, grand windows, and a total of nine fireplaces ornament the distinguished interior. The home’s four bedrooms and five baths feature original period details as well as modern amenities.
The property is framed by shrubbery, perennial plantings, and a blossoming cherry tree on the front lawn. An in-ground pool sits on the pristine half-acre grounds as well, concealed by manicured hedges. Neighboring the Southport train station, Pequot Library, and Trinity Church, and only blocks from Southport Beach and village shops, the home offers a convenient location. But unlike Gilmore Girls’s ‘Stars Hollow,’ this charming Connecticut locale is for real.
