Acclaimed AD100 designer Vicente Wolf brought his clear, restrained and elegant aesthetic to this inspiring, light-filled 2001-built Colonial in Westport, Connecticut.
The interiors pay homage to proportion, scale and light in masterful form with over 12,500 square feet of living space. “If the room is like a stage, then you already have a play, if you have great light,” Wolf has once said – and it shows in every room of this residence.
Custom-built in 2001, the home offers a commanding two-story entry with views of the Saugatuck River, a waterfall and the picture-perfect yard with multiple entertaining patios and a private vegetable garden. The main level brings grand scale living and entertaining into focus with a living room, dining room, family room and kitchen with butler’s pantry. Many of the rooms face the rear terrace and backyard, for a feeling of pure serenity. An office, full bedroom suite and two baths complete this level. The second floor encompasses a full-size second family room, art room and four bedroom suites, including a striking primary suite that spans the entire width of the house from front to back and entices with sweeping views from a private covered balcony. There is also a third-floor second office, dressing room with closets and incredible storage.
Created to be an enduring live-work-play destination, the home truly impresses once you encounter the lower levels. On the first of two lower levels, you’ll find a game room and bar with walkout, a gym, two changing rooms, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, guest bedroom suite, and an observation area for the below-grade sports court.
Beyond, a magical outdoor setting that looks and feels like it’s straight out of a movie set invites you to enjoy your own private oasis: a pergola-covered dining area with a built-in grill, a gunite pool and spa, romantic stone patios and staircases, arched doorways plus access for canoeing and fishing on the Saugatuck River. Truly the perfect stage from which to enjoy life.
