A JEWEL ON THE GOLD COAST
A newly built masterpiece by Roger Ferris + Partners on Westport’s Gold Coast combines minimalist style and architectural precision with relaxed beachside living.
131 Beachside Avenue, Westport, Connecticut
Westport’s Gold Coast is a sparkling swath of coastline in southwest Connecticut studded with some of the country’s most exquisite homes. Recently, an elegant new louvered timber and glass home designed by Roger Ferris + Partners and constructed by Sound Building LLC joined this exclusive architectural enclave—and it’s now on the market for the first time.
131 Beachside Avenue boasts 4,250-square-feet of interior space and 3,250-square-feet of exterior living space, with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout that embrace spectacular views of the Long Island Sound from every room. The relaxed, open-plan ground floor features a state-of-the-art Bulthaup kitchen, well-appointed dining, living room, and office, all surrounded by a covered deck that extends the living space outside.
While the first floor is ideal for entertaining, the second floor offers a cozy refuge for residents. There are four bedrooms, each with a private en-suite, and the primary bedroom features sweeping 270-degree water views. The lower-ground two-car garage can be reached via staircase or elevator, offering a truly accessible home.
As with any minimalist interior, attention to detail is paramount—and the interior of this architectural beauty is exquisitely detailed, with custom millwork, European live-sawn oak hardwood floors, and a floor-to-ceiling library wall. One of the most dramatic details is the marble fireplace that unfolds across a feature wall in the living room, the veins of the stone creating a natural abstract artwork that defines the space.
The sleek, minimalist home is crowned with a living roof of easy-to-care-for sedum plants that change color with the seasons, surrounding a 1,500-squarefoot roof deck that is accessed via a retractable glass ceiling. The deck is designed to support a hot tub and offers 360-degree views through the glass balustrade.
The ultra-contemporary home sits amidst landscaped grounds that seemingly spill into the sands around the Long Island Sound, giving the impression of an endless garden. Rolling lawns surround a custom round Gunite salt-water pool that contrasts dramatically with the rectilinear architecture. With just one neighboring property, which is secluded behind a line of tall trees, 131 Beachside Avenue is also incredibly private—and is just waiting for new owners to make it their own slice of paradise on the Gold Coast.
131 Beachside Avenue, Westport, Connecticut, is listed for $7,500,000
