Property Description

Poised on 13 spectacular acres along the Aspetuck River, Seagram’s Creek represents one of the largest & most beautiful estates in Westport. Acclaimed architect Michael Greenberg was inspired by an antique chestnut barn in neighboring Weston, moving it to its current location where it continues to serve as the home’s stately muse. Once the country estate of Seagram CEO and philanthropist 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 home’s original vision. Six native stone fireplaces illuminate antique hand-hewn beams and reclaimed wood elements throughout captivating living spaces filled with exquisite details and historic character. Outside, a spectacular honed marble terraces, pool, pool house, tennis court and artist studio are embraced by lush gardens and rolling lawns. Follow the sylvan walking trails to 750’ of tranquil riverfront to experience blissful moments at the water’s edge. A true showpiece!
