On the Market: 'Sandtucket,' a Nantucket beach-chic colonial in Westport

No one is traveling to tropical islands at the moment. But who needs palm trees or palm-sized palmetto bugs when they can enjoy sophisticated seaside living on Westport's Saugatuck Island.

The light gray contemporary colonial house at 8 Sandpiper Road sits on a level property of almost a quarter of an acre in the Saugatuck Shore neighborhood only steps from Long Island Sound. Its location is ideal for beach and nature lovers, water sports enthusiasts, and commuters. It's on the market for $3,500,000.
