Description

Storied Westport Residence. This striking, three-storey Italianate manor in Greens Farms earned its name, Franton Court, from the original curator and co-founder of the Guggenheim museum. Celebrated artists Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Lger, Marc Chagall and even Frank Lloyd Wright were frequent visitors, to name-drop just a few. And who can blame them? The remarkable design and cunning craftsmanship give the impression that this is no mere house but, perhaps, a work of art. Light reflects and shimmers through uniquely designed rooms, each with its own dramatic assertions. In a different tone, but no less dramatic, is the entertainment barnwith its open space and soaring ceiling and full bar. Visitors will also appreciate the comfort of the two-bedroom guesthouse. The home is sited on 3 acres of verdant grounds with a pool, a professional tennis court and surrounded by 7 additional acres of nature preserve. Downtown or the beach is minutes away and Manhattan is another 50.
