Everything has been done to the highest standards in this winner of the 2008 Preservation Award. Stunning kitchen, all updated baths, sumptuous master suite down a private hall. Nothing to do but move in and enjoy this iconic piece of Westport’s arts and music history, originally the longtime home of the famed illustrator Harold von Schmidt and his son Eric, a member of the folk scene and influencer and friend of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and others. The artist’s historic studio is now a renovated guest cottage with new kitchen and bath approved as a legal rental — also a great party barn or the perfect home office!

All just an easy stroll to downtown shops and restaurants and easy to the NYC train.
