Westport house with wine tasting room listed for $3.95 million

Located just a short walk or drive away from Westport’s Bedford Middle School and Staples High School is a modern shingle colonial home on 4 Peach Lot Place. For its current owners, they loved that their house was close enough to their kids’ school but also had privacy courtesy of its cul-de-sac location, according to Mersene Norbom of LH Homes Team at William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty. 

Now on the market for $3.95 million, the three-level home is not visible from the road and sits on 1 acre of land. Contrary to the street name, the property features old apple trees that drop apples each season. 

Walking inside, Norbom described the house as “move-in ready” and “a comfortable, entertaining home.” The six bedroom and six-and-a-half bathroom home has 6,112 square feet of living space. The main floor powder room was renovated by interior designer Tamy Wassong in 2019, a New York-based designer who recently won Westchester Magazine’s 2022 Design Award for Best Entry. She was also nominated for Best Whole Home Design.

The kitchen also went through recent renovations to create an open gathering space suitable for entertaining. The eat-in kitchen has three dishwashers — one of which is attached to the wet bar — and leathered granite countertops, according to the listing details. The entertaining space continues to the lower level with a “wine tasting room,” which features an elevated wine cellar with two large Sub Zero wine coolers near a couch and TV area.

Other interior amenities include an all-mirrored room, now used as a pilates studio, a game and recreation room that could double as another family room, a music lounge and a laundry room with two washers and dryers. There are also two office areas, one of which has access to a private side porch. 

Outside the home, there is a bluestone patio that was doubled in size. The outdoor lounge area shares a double-sided fireplace with the family room. The backyard does not have a pool, but the listing notes there is potential to build one based on the property’s flatness and size.
