20 Whitney Street, Westport

Welcome to Whitney

This Whitney St. property sits prominently high on a manicured one-half acre of lovely landscaping and stonework and where the perennials are beautiful and your garden will grow! The location is very convenient to the stores, the restaurants, the train, the Sound and all of Westport’s recreational and cultural amenities. Inside the classic colonial exterior is an open floor plan warmed by extensive hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, crisp fresh paint and many windows inviting sunshine. This 3,298 s.f. home was built in 1985 and has been beautifully, caringly maintained. The foyer, with its tile flooring and the open stairway to the second level, gives an immediate sense of an understated elegance here, and, of the smart layout. The foyer is open to the fireplaced living room on one side, the dining room on the other side and the kitchen in the rear. The kitchen is a large gathering space and includes a breakfast nook with a bowed window overlooking the rear yard. The appliances are stainless, the countertops are granite and the cabinetry is wood, sleek and chic; the flooring is tile. The kitchen opens to a very large family room with a stone-faced fireplace and a wall of built-ins for books, photos, collections. It is here that holidays and birthdays are celebrated with family, neighbors, friends, old and new. A powder room is located off of the kitchen. French doors lead from the family room to the rear deck and stairs to the rear yard. The rear deck and yard is also accessible via another set of French doors from the living room. Upstairs offers the master bedroom with an en ensuite bath and three additional bedrooms, a full hallway bath and a laundry room.
