WESTPORT — Houses in waterfront communities have come a long way from the modest summer cottages of the mid-20th century. Today’s beach houses are generally quite large and outfitted with a wealth of modern amenities.
One of the most recent in the Compo Beach neighborhood landscape is the distinctive 3,300-square-foot white contemporary at 33 Sherwood Drive created by renowned Westport architect Peter Cadoux. The concrete and shingle house was built in 2016 on a one tenth of an acre level and gently sloping property just a block from Compo Cove and yet it is sited safely above the flood zone. Mill Pond and Compo Beach are within walking distance. Views of Compo Cove and Long Island Sound are visible from several rooms and the roof-top deck of IPE wood, which has an outdoor gas-fueled fireplace with protective wind cover and custom glass railings.
