Westport, Conn. | $1.994 Million

A 1707 Colonial with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, on a 0.8-acre lot

While this Fairfield County home has been expanded since it was constructed in the early 18th century, the owners have taken care to preserve and even augment its character: An early 1990s addition, for example, was built using repurposed materials from a circa 1850 home.

The property is close to the center of town, about a five-minute drive from popular shopping and dining centers, and 10 minutes from the well-ranked public Staples High School. Driving to Hartford or Midtown Manhattan can take an hour and a half or more than two hours, depending on traffic.

Size: 2,730 square feet

Price per square foot: $730

Indoors: The house is set back from the street, behind a low stone wall and a wide lawn.

The front door opens into a foyer with a staircase to the second floor straight ahead. To the left is a living room with rough-hewed, beamed ceilings, a fireplace and original wide-plank wood floors. To the right is a dining room with another fireplace and access to a butler’s pantry that connects to the kitchen, which has a Viking range and pale green cabinetry.

The kitchen is open to a family room with yet another fireplace and windows overlooking the grounds. Around the corner are a powder room and a room the sellers use as a workout space.

Another set of stairs leads from the family room up to the primary bedroom, which has sloped ceilings and a fireplace with a delft-style tile surround. The primary bathroom, next door, has a combined tub and shower.
