42 Spriteview Avenue – $1,945,000


This custom contemporary home of stone, glass, wood, stucco and marble is a masterpiece that sits on a private island, only steps from the Long Island Sound, a private dock and the most amazing water views. This home will enable one to enjoy all the special amenities of being a Westport Connecticut resident. Calling this remarkable residence and location, home makes you feel as if you’re on vacation all the time while only 5 minutes from exit 17 off interstate 95 and the Westport train station both about an hour from New York City.

This smart, highly automated home has 3777 sq/ft of interior living space, including three bedrooms and a den.  In addition to the interior living space, the residence has 1231 sq/ft of exterior space on two levels of wood decks overlooking water views of the Long Island Sound. A wonderful stone patio is nestled among the lush professionally landscaped grounds, filled with an assortment of plantings, gardens and a magnificent weeping Alaskan Cedar specimen tree.

As one enters this home you are greeted by a spacious living room; with garden and water views on two walls looking through sliding glass doors that are adorned with remote control drapes, a coffered ceiling, a custom wood built in entertainment center, wood floors and a fireplace featuring a hearth and bench seat made of stone and marble. The dining room has its own custom wood built in unit and walnut inlaid floors adjacent to the kitchen which features marble floors with stone inlays, granite counter tops, custom cabinetry and updated appliances. Down the hall are two bedrooms; each with their own uniquely designed bathroom, featuring vanities that would fit just as well in a museum of interior design as they do in this fantastic home. If you need to get some work done, step into the peaceful office at the back of the house facing the water. It features hardwood flooring, custom built-ins with granite counter tops and a fireplace. The only problem is the easy distraction of the water views and the enticement to step outside onto the stone patio and enjoy a beautiful day.

As you ascend the wood and steel spiral staircase surrounded on one side by the architectural statement that is a 2 story wall of glass block you are met by a master suite that should be the envy of all 4 star hotels. At the top of the stairs one finds a hallway with marble floors, custom wood cabinetry and granite counter tops that leads to the private wet bar, well-appointed sleeping quarters, or the master spa bath.

Imagine waking up to the breeze coming off the water and sitting up to see this stunning sight, while opening the remote controlled drapes and then stepping out onto the wrap around balcony with panoramic views of the Long Island Sound. Accessible from the sleeping area is the his & hers wardrobe room and the master spa bath – which is something to behold and luxuriate in. There is a 4 head steam shower by Steamist, a separate Vita bath whirlpool tub by Soft Touch surrounded by an original hand painted mural. In-between the luxurious shower and inviting tub is a vanity with his & hers sinks. On the opposite wall is an additional over sized vanity table and mirror where one could sit or if you decide, step out onto your private deck off the master bath. Lastly there is a toilet and bidet with skylights above featuring remote control shades. When stepping out of the spa bath go left to the self contained sauna with its own shower or go to the other side for another private half bath.

Walking back down the hallway one could step into the private stocked wet bar and beverage cooler, with custom cabinetry and granite counter tops or step out onto the wrap around second story deck. Once on the deck one could enjoy a meal or read the paper, but there is more. Walk up a few steps to a private outdoor hot tub with tile decking and an outdoor shower. From there you can take the stairs to the expansive roof deck which makes up almost the entire third level where some one can wile away the day sun bathing in a private and secluded setting while enjoying the dramatic views at the top of what has become your own personal resort.

There are an abundance of advanced and well thought out features that include a Honeywell alarm system, Goldbeam outdoor intercom and camera, centrally controlled audio system that sends music inside or out, architectural and accent lighting inside and out controlled by a Leviton computer programmable system with up to 8 different scenes, remote control awnings and drapes for when you’ve had enough sun, central vacuum system, a hookup making the house generator ready so one never has to lose power, a Hunter outdoor irrigation system, solid panel interior doors, high end hardware through out the residence and a built in outdoor barbecue just steps away from the spacious stone patio.
