Westport home with artistic flair listed for more than $2.9M

WESTPORT — From the outside, 10 Mortar Rock Road appears as a modern colonial, but inside there is a unique, artistic feel.

“The current homeowner has a flair for fun, whimsical design,” says Mary Green, from Michelle and Team.

Green refers to the floral art wall with hints of purple, blue and orange in the den off the front foyer. The creativity stems beyond the wall and to the grand piano that overlooks the front yard. Despite the high ceiling and large windows, the room has a cozy feel during the winter months with the fireplace decorated with a white, crown molding mantelpiece.

Directly across the den, guests are welcomed into the dining room. Green says the dining table was custom made to fit the oversized room. The table seats eight, including six black, zig-zag chairs. 

The armless zig-zag chairs, create an optical illusion, and are deemed comfortable and sturdy, according to an article in the Architectural Digest. Zig-zag chairs date back to 1930, when Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld was asked to create a chair for mass production, according to the magazine. 

The dining hall blends into the open-concept kitchen, eating area and living room, all with expansive views to the backyard. An open feel is definitely a theme throughout the 5,271-square-foot home. 

Below that is ample room for  a home gym or additional furniture to complete the space, which already has a full bathroom. Green says what makes 10 Mortar Rock Road special is the high ceilings in the partially finished lower level below.

All five bedrooms and two of the four-and-a-half bathrooms are located on the second floor. The primary bedroom offers three walk-in closets, private sitting room, a second home office and a recently renovated spa bath, according to the listing details. There is also a bonus room with vaulted ceilings and large windows that could serve as a game or playroom.

Green describes the interior of the home as having a nice flow and an overall warm feeling. The comfort extends to the exterior with the private, fully fenced backyard. Recent additions to the outdoor space include a saltwater pool and spa that can be controlled by an app, according to the listing notes. As well as a terrace and outdoor kitchen in 2014. The home sits on a 0.51-acre lot with an attached three-car garage.
