The stock market is headed for its worst December since 1931.
But in Westport, there’s a house on the market for $20 million.
At 5,206 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 3 partial baths and a 3-car garage on 1.48 acres, it doesn’t sound too different from many Westport homes worth about $18 million less.
Plus, this is right on a main road. There’s a ton of traffic — especially in summer.
Then again, that’s one of the attractions. This is the house everyone gawks at.
It’s the only one on the south side of Hillspoint Road between Soundview Drive and Old Mill Beach.
In real estate-speak, 261 Hillspoint Road offers
total privacy – and the most stunning, varied and interesting water views one could ever hope to find….This important property is the most truly unique waterfront estate at coveted Compo Beach. This premier neighborhood is one of the most highly-desired coastal communities in the Northeast.
There are “mesmerizing views of the water…..all but two rooms open to vast waterside decks and balconies.” Plus a private beach, a pool, pool house and outdoor kitchen.
So the hell with the market. You only live once. Go for it!
