Westport beach home from the 1920s updated for today

WESTPORT — Originally built in 1920, the home at 21 Norwalk Ave. has been completely re-envisioned to offer an easy-care, modern lifestyle within a short stroll to Compo Beach.

The first-and-only owners of the new space, which is set on more than a tenth of an acre, have used it as a second home, said listing agent Toni Mickiewicz of William Raveis Real Estate.

“With the beach within view, the pickle ball courts, basketball, summer camp within walking distance, the marina, not to mention Longshore golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools, sailing school and ice skating in the winter…” she said. “What more do you need?”

The colonial home’s main floor provides a great room and kitchen combo that allows for both everyday living and entertaining options. The airy space includes high ceilings and hardwood floors, as well as built-ins and a gas log fireplace.

With white marble counters and custom cabinets, the kitchen includes top-of-the-line appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a wine cooler.
