WESTPORT, Conn. -- A circa 1870 home in Westport, steeped in history and filled with charm, has recently hit the market. Secluded on a private street of three properties, this home is one of Westport's most sought-after listings.
3 Charbeth Lane has been completely renovated and features five bedrooms with a fully equipped, two bedroom legal rental cottage. In total, the estate includes seven bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, in the heart of the prestigious, Hunt Club area. "Having a separate rental cottage is quite rare, and offers many options for rental income, extended family, multi-generational arrangements or visiting guests," said listing agent, Darcy Sledge of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
In addition to its unique space, 3 Charbeth Lane was featured on the Westport Historical Society Holiday House Tour, an annual tradition attracting hundreds of visitors, and an honor bestowed on a select few homeowners. It was once a barn and carriage house for the revolutionary era “Tory house” seen at the beginning of the street. The “barn” portion once provided shelter and warmth to cows ready to give birth. Today it has been transformed into a great room with a leather banquette and granite kitchenette, while keeping the exposed beams and large stone hearth. "The property exudes character details and rich history while being restored and renovated from top to bottom," said Tina Crosby, co-listing agent.
This well-constructed home features distinctive architectural detail which has been updated for modern living. Some updates include a large country kitchen with Carrera counters, powder room with glass tile floor, and much more."This is a home with a pedigree, rich in details, all in one of Westport's toniest neighborhoods," said Sledge.
Nestled on a private street, 3 Charbeth Lane offers over an acre of rolling lawns, situated close to shops and schools. The shuttle to Metro-North stops at the home's mailbox. Featuring a 30-foot terrace overlooking the property, this home is great for hosting family and friends.
