A Greek Revival in Southport Sails onto the Market Asking $4.2M
In Southport village in Fairfield, Connecticut, a gracious Greek Revival home is on the market for $4.2 million. Built in 1835 for a ship captain, the exteriors are entirely 19th-century, with ornate windows and a wide wraparound porch featuring hand-carved columns.
Inside, it’s a different story. The interiors have been thoroughly renovated by architect John Toates, who built two new wings housing a great room, home office and spectacular main bedroom suite that offers 10-foot exposed-beam ceilings, a fireplace, a balcony and a spa-like bath with a brushed-steel slipper tub. The new kitchen is also swell with marble countertops, a Lacanche stove and two islands.
The home sits on more than five acres, a rarity in the village, featuring a parterre kitchen garden, an apple orchard and an organic grassy field. It is listed with Amy Waugh Curry of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
