5 Michele Lane, Westport, Connecticut
Westport. A spectacular, Connecticut location close to the ocean and under an hour from midtown Manhattan. It is home to quaint streets, tree-lined drives, and one of the loveliest estates in all of Fairfield County. "Set at the end of a private Lane in Coleytown, Westport, which is a coveted area of town originally put on the map by late celebrity resident and philanthropist, Paul Newman, 5 Michele Lane embodies exquisite living," explains Jaclyn Picarillo, listing broker and agent with Higgins Real Estate Group. "In true harmony with its peaceful 2+ acre setting, this stunning custom estate with high end finishes throughout boasts stonewalls, wooded privacy, exquisite heated pool and spa, beautiful outdoor entertaining spaces, and is even walkable to a fun fly fishing river. Serenity is yours at 5 Michele, yet you're just minutes to town, beach, train, and 50 minutes to NYC."
5 Michele Lane offers more than 9,000-square-feet of sprawling, elegant living spaces adorned with details paying homage to custom craftsmanship. Just moments from the award-winning schools and upscale offerings, the 6-bedroom, 8 1/2-bathroom estate welcomes guests with a stately approach, before greeting them through the main entry featuring an arched portico flanked by stone walls. Inside, the meticulously designed, distinctive paneled entry area is anchored by a gracefully curved staircase featuring wrought iron spindles capped with hardwood banisters and beautifully carved newel posts. Dramatic high ceilings throughout the home feature tray and wood beam details, while warm hardwood floors gleam underfoot. Exquisite mouldings adorn the doors and paned windows, as well as the home's seven fireplaces.
On the main level, an open floor plan boasts a gourmet kitchen area with a large island, walk-in pantry, soaring ceilings, a floor to ceiling fireplace, seemingly endless counter space, a window-walled breakfast room overlooking the pool, and French doors leading to the deck. The home's formal dining room and living room, both with fireplaces, facilitates hosting family and friends with ease and class. "This ideal family home also provides ample space for today's home study/work needs," reveals Picarillo. "It has a handsomely paneled office, a second office off the mudroom, and even more space on the lower level."
Upstairs you will find the Master Suite with fireplace, sitting room, Juliette balcony, generous closets, and an indulgent bath featuring both a steam shower and heated floors. There are four additional ensuite bedrooms on this upper level, as well as a study/playroom.
The lower level delivers a dramatic wine cellar, changing room and bath, custom sauna, two large recreation rooms with a fireplace, a well-equipped kitchenette, gym, and a private bedroom suite. French doors lead you to the patio, custom pool, and spa, luring you out to enjoy long summer days and sultry summer nights under the stars.
"Whether you are throwing an elaborate party with an endless guest list or spending quiet family time at home by one of the seven fireplaces, there is nowhere better," concludes Picarillo. "5 Michele Lane is a lifestyle estate with endless amenities in a world-class destination."
