Westport Has the Ultimate Eco-Friendly Home for Sale
In Westport, there’s a circa-1949 home that was entirely rebuilt to comply with the highest standards of sustainability. The Westport firm of SellarsLathrop Architects started with a conventional contemporary whose chief appeal was the back lawn that rolled down to private frontage and a dock along the Saugatuck River.
When the architects opened up the entire back of the house, they built a two-story glass wall with massive folding doors that open onto a stylish terrace. The interiors are airy and modern with cool features like a glassed-in staircase and a curvaceous free-form fiberglass kitchen counter that anchors itself to the ceiling to create a portal between eating and cooking areas. The four-bedroom home is also Energy Star certified, thanks to solar panels on the roof, triple-glazed windows and doors, and electric air source heating pumps. It is listed with Emily Gordon of Coldwell Banker Real Estate for $2,850,000.
