    Description

    Westport's premier riverfront estate, Seagram's Creek is a private family compound like no other. Award-winning architect Michael Greenberg was inspired by an antique chestnut barn in neighboring Weston, moving it to its current location where it serves as the homes stately muse. Once the country estate of Seagram CEO Edgar Bronfman Sr., the current owners renovated the home in 2017, bringing in top interior designer Meg Sharpe to infuse a light and modern aesthetic into the homes original vision. Native stone fireplaces, soaring ceilings, and exposed beams captivate throughout chic living and dining spaces and a first floor master suite forms a serene retreat. Outside, spectacular honed marble terraces overlook the resort-like pool, pool house and tennis court. A separate studio serves as an ideal home office, located just steps from the main house. Privately sited on 13 lush acres including 750' of riverfront, sylvan walking trails and rolling lawns, this is the country home of your dreams.
