On the Market: Contemporary on Saugatuck Island in Westport boasts spectacular waterfront views

The next owners of the architecturally significant stone and stucco contemporary house at 42 Spriteview Avenue on Saugatuck Island are not just buying a waterfront home and lifestyle, they are purchasing unobstructed views of Long Island Sound and Fourth of July fireworks.

For next year's pyrotechnics they can sit atop their roof deck with no thought of venturing out, struggling to find a parking spot, wading into the throng of people, jostling for a patch of grass or sand from which to watch the festive aerial display, and then getting stuck in traffic en route home. While everyone else is fighting traffic and crowds they can pack a picnic meal, make a cool beverage and simply walk upstairs.
