Westport home is ‘coastal living at its finest’

WESTPORT — Just a few minutes from the train and all the amenities of bustling downtown Saugatuck, the five-bedroom home at 22 Bermuda Road feels a world away, said listing agent Lisa Hartmann, of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.

Built in 2000 directly on Bermuda Lagoon, it offers a rare private deep-water dock for an easy visit to nearby Cockenoe Island or sailing off into Long Island Sound and beyond.

“This is coastal living at its finest,” she said.

Set on a landscaped half-acre, the Nantucket-style shingle colonial features a dramatic two-story entry and spacious formal dining room serviced by a butler’s pantry that flow into the kitchen and great room spaces. A fieldstone fireplace flanked by wood bookcases anchors the room, which offers pretty views of sunsets and the water.

Doors along the rear of the home open to a flagstone patio with grilling station, covered porch and barbecue pit. The home has 100 feet of direct waterfront access, including a full private dock.

All five bedrooms are en suite and boast walk-in closets. The primary suite offers a gas fireplace, spa and a balcony with lagoon views.

Hartmann has some advice for future owners.

“Relax on the sandbar at Cockenoe Island or clam at low tide,” she said. “Simply be thankful for each day by passing time with someone you care about as you share life’s simple pleasures.”
