WESTPORT — The look of the neighborhood in Westport that includes Clinton Avenue is gradually changing. One by one smaller houses that once dotted the streetscape are being razed and replaced with larger domiciles that more accurately reflect and accommodate the lifestyle of today’s families.
The ranch house that stood on the 0.32 of an acre mostly level property at 48 Clinton Ave. at the corner of Fillow Street was torn down in recent years and in its place now stands a light tan-colored shingle-style colonial house that has almost as many bedrooms as the ranch had rooms in total. The ranch had five rooms. This new house, built in 2015 by EPL Enterprises in Monroe, has four bedrooms. The ranch, which was built in 1960, had only 1,363 square feet of living space while this new house has more than that in the finished basement alone. In all, the new house has a total of 7,631 square feet on four finished floors including 1,631 just in the basement.
