It’s never too early to start shopping for next year’s holiday gifts.
Maybe you want to splurge on something for yourself.
Or perhaps you’re looking for that ultimate “I’ve-got-it-and-you-don’t” Westport status symbol.
Whatever the reason, here’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance: Leases on Alan Sterling’s 78.6-acre shellfish beds are up for sale.
The private shellfish farm — just off Compo Beach’s Cedar Point — is at least as attractive as owning your own vegetable garden, putting green or tennis court. Due to local legislation, of course, owning a shellfish bed is much rarer.
The possibilities are endless: Invite your friends to an oyster and clam dinner, featuring your very own bivalves.
If eating local food is important, here’s a way to do so — while controlling the quality of your family’s food supply.
Sure, it’s a vanity asset — but it’s quite possibly a tax writeoff.
The beds are listed for $225,000. Negotiations are possible, depending on the terms of sale.
