Work began yesterday on the new bathrooms at Compo Beach. They’ll be adjacent to the pickleball courts, between South Beach and the Ned Dimes Marina.
There is no estimated date yet for completion.
Okay, so the temperature today reached the mid-50s.
Still, it was not exactly a beach day.
C-c-c-c-c-cold water did not stop 11 hardy area residents, from high school through middle age.
Urged on by 50 relatively warm (and very dry) spectators, the group raced into the water, for a brief New Year’s Day dip.
The 3rd annual Popkin Polar Plunge was a fundraiser for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
Organizer David Popkin says over $4,000 was raised to help find a cure for the autoimmune disease that affects 1.5 million Americans.
Of course, even if you weren’t one of the b-b-b-b-brave plungers, you can still help. Click here to contribute.
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!
