1227 Pequot Avenue, Southport, Connecticut
The coastal hamlet, Southport, Connecticut, has much more than manicured lawns, piquant green terrain, and historical allure. It's a suburban arcadia! This spirited community is laced with a plethora of amenities. From their esteemed Pequot Yacht Club, renowned youth sports facilities, antique galleries, five-star hotel, and Zagat rated restaurants, Southport is a unique town that you will struggle to find such luxuries in abundance elsewhere. "Today, Southport Village is a genteel, yet lively and energetic community," says preeminent realtor Victoria Fingelly with Higgins Group Private Brokerage.
It is here in this coastal paradise, at 1227 Pequot Avenue, that you will find Victoria's newest stately listing that awaits a new family to call home. "Built circa 1908, expanded and thoughtfully renovated to maintain its original architectural elements, the waterfront estate occupies 1.37-acres," explains Victoria. "The three-level, 8,800-square-foot, 9-bedroom, 8-and-a-half-bathroom residence is the epitome of Southport elegance."
The property unearths a realm of pure luxury from the moment you enter the front door. The first floor's leisure spaces affix a welcoming sentiment with features such as hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace, coffered wood ceiling, and French doors that align the indoors with outdoor living spaces where one can view the manicured grounds and endless sea views. One can sit in the cherry paneled, oval dining room with a gas fireplace, custom built-in cabinetry, and take in the sights of the Long Island Sound and feel content every day. Seeded glass double doors lead from the family room into the stunning designer kitchen with porcelain tile flooring, custom cabinetry, quartzite center island, quartzite back-splash, two farm sinks, and two walk-in pantries. The plethora of state-of-the-art appliances is a chef's dream come true: two sets of Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezers, Wolf Stove with six gas burners, griddle, and grill, two Miele dishwashers, wine cooler, warming drawer, pot-filler, icemaker, and the pièce de résistance, a Brick Pizza Oven. An ensuite waterfront bedroom, pool bath, and laundry room complete this floor.
Retreat to the second floor, where you'll find six additional gracious bedrooms, a sauna, and the owner's suite - and it does not disappoint. Taking full advantage of the tranquil sea views, the sprawling suite has an adjoining office, open-air sleeping porch, gas fireplace, and two walk-in cedar closets. The ensuite bath paves the way to a luxurious labyrinth of amenities, including an oversized steam shower, free-standing Bain Ultra tub, private water closet, and marble top vanity. One flight up, you'll discover a lounge, sitting room, bedroom, full bath, and extra storage.
The grounds are also meticulously crafted with precision and thought; an assemblage of sage green trees complement the in-ground, heated Gunite pool and spa crystal waters. The outdoor space extends to the sandy dunes of Southport Beach, where you have a glorious 200' wide private sandy beach.
With regal beguile, every aspect of this property denotes understated luxury. 1227 Pequot Avenue is a rare opportunity to experience a privileged lifestyle in an exclusive and enchanting coastal locale.
