The European-style contemporary house at 10 River Lane in Westport features large two-story windows and two large decks to enjoy views of the Saugatuck River.
The original house that stood on this 1.54-acre level and sloping waterfront property in the Old Hill neighborhood was torn down. This one was custom built in its place, taking full advantage of the scenic setting along the Saugatuck River.
They gave the off-white stone and stucco house exquisite architectural details and design elements, green features to earn an Energy Star rating, 6,376 square feet of living and entertaining space, and disability access including 32-inch minimum door widths, 60-inch turning radius and hallways at least 36 inches wide.
There are also extraordinarily tall ceilings and an abundance of two-story glass walls that allow for views of the river from every room. Those walls of glass give its residents the impression that they are living in a treehouse, a rather elegant and sophisticated treehouse.
