This type of property hasnt come to market much recently, so if you've always dreamed of building a custom home, this Southport, Conn. property might be for you. The listing details a four bedroom colonial for sale. Behind the house is an approved building lot. If you buy the house and the building lot as a package, you can live in the house while you build your dream house right next door.
The house for sale is none too shabby. Everything has been done up to the nines. I particularly like the way the open kitchen leads into the other downstairs rooms. And I love the master bedroom, which has bookshelves on the bed wall and a well-lit recess for the headboard.
The property is on a cul-de-sac near the Westport town line, close to the Southport train station and the village. The manicured lawn abuts a protected forest, and the approved 1.34 acre building lot. Asking price for the whole package at 165 Butternut Lane, Southport, is $1,624 million , but if youre just interested in the house, the price is $1.275 million .
