WESTPORT, Conn. -- A newly-listed home at 27 Long Lots Road takes potential buyers back in time while still offering today’s modern conveniences.
Todd David Miller of Higgins Group is listing the four-bedroom, 2.5 bath home for $1,499,950. Built in 1750, the home, which has been renovated throughout, has managed to marry the past with the present while retaining the charm of a bygone era.
“It’s got a lot of character,’’ Miller said. “There are wonderful wood beams on the ceiling and wide plank floors. It feels like you’re stepping back in time.”
Potential buyers will also enjoy the state of the art of kitchen. It includes a cook top range, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, ice maker and microwave. It is most definitely not a 1750s kitchen.
“It looks and feels like it’s brand new,’’ Miller said. “It has all of the amenities of today.”
The home also features three fireplaces and central air. The bedrooms are upstairs, along with a den. Large windows provide views of a beautifully landscaped yard, which includes a koi pond and patio.
There is also a one-bedroom guest house with a bedroom and living room.
The home sits in one of Westport’s most-coveted family neighborhoods. Shopping destinations on Post Road are nearby, as are tennis courts, a health club and a medical facility.
“It’s a good value,’’ Miller said. “That’s why we’re getting a lot of attention. It’s attracting a lot of interest from people who want to move up from New York City and want a lower tax structure and a storybook retreat. It’s also getting a lot of attention from a lot of antique lovers that want move-in condition.”
