About 55 Kings Highway North

2022 Preservation Award Winner, HIDDEN GEM, PRIVATE BACKYARD. This walkable-to-town, award-winning makeover of an early 1900's barn -- smack-in-the-middle of Westport's sought-after Kings Hwy Historic District -- is one of the most picturesque, in-town, quintessential Connecticut settings you could wish for. In this quiet and private residence, wake up to a view of the red barn next door that was a speakeasy during Prohibition. Sip cool refreshment on your private back porch under a breeze from the ceiling fan, while contemplating the tranquil view of an old-style fieldstone drywall. When it gets buggy out, you can drop automated screens at the press of a button and continue your meal without missing a beat. Sonos-connected speakers pipe your favorite music indoors and outdoors --wherever "you" and your entertainment merge. The Barn is accented inside and out with authentic beams that were part of its origin as shelter to farm animals. New life is breathed into every square inch of this home to carry it into its next 100 years. Artifacts have been salvaged and reused such as the barn door rails and horseshoes re-attaching the original rustic door to the front facade. The fireplace installed in the early 1900s during the barn's conversion to a residence is prominent and newly-operational with its original swinging black wrought iron screens, andirons and brick from the now-defunct North Haven Stiles Family Foundry.
