Modern Westport home with rooftop deck and glass elevator listed for $9.9M

Completed just a few months ago, the home at 135 Harbor Road is the newest addition to Saugatuck Island in Westport. The island is a 120-home neighborhood with a Nantucket or the Hamptons feel, according to managing broker Danielle Malloy at Nest Seekers International of Greenwich. Residents in this private association have their own beach access and yacht club. The house at 135 Harbor Road is no exception, with its view of Long Island Sound. 

Despite the surrounding New England seaside neighborhood, the 135 Harbor Road home features an ultra-modern design that’s reminiscent of a beach home straight from Malibu. The modern, all-white rooms benefit from the large windows overlooking the water.  

The five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms stretch across 5,100 square feet of living space. Throughout, there are “sophisticated appointments,” according to the listing, such as double kitchen islands with waterfall Cristallo Quartzite countertops, as well as a primary bedroom suite outfitted with a blue acrylic soaking tub. 

The 135 Harbor Road home in Westport, Conn. has five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms and a rooftop deck.

The home sits on a 0.34-acre lot that comes with a pool, a private deep water dock and beach access. Adding to its outdoor space is a 1,500 square-foot rooftop terrace, which is wired for surround sound and has a fireplace, a hot tub and ample space for outdoor seating and entertaining. The rooftop is accessible via the home’s panoramic glass elevator that goes down to all three levels, according to the listing details.

Before the Harbor Road property became the modern beachside structure it is today, there was a previous home on the site that the current owners knocked down. They then worked with a local builder to construct the current new home. 

“The builder wanted to create a piece of art and build a home that is like no other,” Malloy said in an email, noting that the builder is known for its unique designs. 

Malloy added that in addition to creating a home with “wow factor,” the builder wanted to create a lasting home that can completely withstand weather. 

To do this, the builder used a weather-resistant barrier called “rain screen,” which has a gap less than an inch wide between the siding and weatherproofed wall that allows water to pass. The zinc-copper roof is fire and insect resistant, and it prohibits mold, mildew and fungus up to 80 years, according to Malloy. The entire home was constructed on a steel subsurface.

The 135 Harbor Road property is located in the 06880 ZIP code of Westport. According to national real estate brokerage Redfin, Westport homes sold for an average of $2 million this past July, which was a 34.5 percent increase from the same time last year. So far this year, homes in Westport sell after 25 days compared to 48 days last year, Redfin notes.
