This Historic Westport Gem Is a Bargain for Under $1M

Along Connecticut’s famed “Gold Coast” lies charming and high-end Westport. Fine dining, glossy beaches and luxury shopping are at the fingertips of residents who inhabit homes located in this quaint town. Westport’s deep appreciation for history is displayed throughout its neighborhoods where time-honored homes line the streets, with plenty of mansions in the area as well. Among these historic residences is the 1845-built Charles Wright House, which is on the market for the reasonable price of $950,000.

The 19th-century gem stays true to its roots, showcasing original elements in its design, but has been updated for the modern buyer. According to the Westport News, homeowner Margaret Peters says that the house provides “the best of all possible worlds.” The unique circular floor plan holds an updated kitchen, wide plank flooring, two working fireplaces and the structure’s original windows.

The home is ideal for a family in more ways than one. Not only are there three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, but the property lies within walking distance of Westport’s schools, town Library and the infamous Levitt Pavilion known for holding concerts and events. Or, if a relaxing afternoon is in the cards, the screened-in porch, backyard garden and private patio are set up to ensure that residents can lounge peacefully.

KMS Partners of Compass holds this listing that merges historic and modern-day elements seamlessly.
