Connecticut Waterfront House

These photographs (very few, I know!) were featured in Architectural digest in 2003. The house was up for sale around April, 2009, for 30m US$. Located on Long Island Sound in Westport, Connecticut and owned by radio talk show host Don Imus and his wife, Deirdre. A stunning house with Gustavian style furniture.

New York-based architects John and Nancy Beringer employed a mix of styles for the exterior.

The entrance hall with a demilune table and bust, both 19th century.

For the parlor, the Louis XVI chair retains its original fabric. Reflected in the Swedish pine and ivory trumeau is a portrait of a gentleman from the Gustavian era.

Gustavian pieces in the parlor include an 18th-century daybed and tea table, which holds a 1790 urn.

  1. What a precious palace! I´m addicted to the dark brown colored wooden floor, that makes the mansion look more chique than it already is, great!
    That panorama at the sea from the living room is gorgeous too. The perfect place.

  2. This house is perfect!
    The facade invites you in.
    It's cozy, bright and the view is amazing.
    Love it.
