On Connecticut’s Gold Coast sheltered by Compo Cove, discover one of the most celebrated homes of Westport; transporting you from city-life to a world of pristine New England natural splendor. Accessible only by footbridge, leave behind your vehicle and time, and cross the Sherwood Millpond onto the peninsula. “Sandbar'' welcomes in the way only an exquisite Nantucket Shingle can, with old-world craftsmanship, completed in 2008, by skilled artisans and award winning architect Brooke Girty. The home is a 5,567 square foot labor of love, masterfully constructed to last for generations, built with equipment and dazzling European materials delivered via a World War II Higgens landing craft. A triumph of texture, light, and harmony with nature, the home is exquisitely punctuated by a breathtaking sunlit spiral staircase styled after a treasured stairwell in Paris. Here, look up and discover a third floor skylight revealing views of the clouds. Artfully placed 100 year old French Oak flooring lines your travels from one room to the next, while Belgian Bluestone wrapped fireplaces warm cheerful vistas and quiet corners. Choose to purchase the furnishings, and you and loved ones will be cared for by custom appointments upholstered by materials ranging from luxury wool to fine cashmere. In the kitchen, a sophisticated island topped with Calcutta marble and custom Lacanche stove assist with splendid holiday dinners and casual weeknight treats. Enjoy at the storied dining room table, or savor al fresco while watching egrets and swans. Deco and Parisian fixtures light the way to dreaming, while four bedrooms and four and a half baths care for guests. In the primary bedroom, serenity is a set of bespoke closets and dual bathrooms of eternal style. Here, the folding panoramic door opens to salty breezes, sea-bird songs, dramatic storms coloring the waves, and sunrise-hued views of distant sailing yachts. Not forgetting utility, find ease with pocket doors, tech-savvy amenities, hideaways for supplies, and displays of French market treasures. Ever filled with beach-lined magic, enjoy the promise of afternoons exploring sand dunes, hunt for seashells, kayak, or spend lazy afternoons tossing driftwood for a four-legged friend. This cozy and graceful heritage-styled cottage, on .45 acres, is an escape from modern pacing, yet sits close to shops, dining, historic villages, Metro-North and I95. Further out, the heart of Manhattan awaits just one hour close.
