This adorable cottage, dubbed “The Mouse House” with a plaque on the front gate, is steps from coveted Campo Beach in Westport, Connecticut. Asking $999,000, the 1,229 square-foot four-bedroom home has been a popular Airbnb listing. It has literary cred as well: The current owner is a bestselling novelist.
Enter the home through a privacy gate into the garden area. Charming stone steps divide a manicured, landscaped front lawn.
The home has been updated with modern conveniences and whitewashed chic. On the main floor, a sophisticated and cozy living room includes a wood-burning fireplace. A den can double as a fourth bedroom. Also on this floor are an additional bedroom and a full bath.
A bright white kitchen gets understated luxury from marble countertops. Just outside through sliding glass doors is a charming deck.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and lots of light. Additional comforts throughout the house include central A/C, barefoot-ready hardwood floors and French doors.
There’s parking in front of the gate. It’s a short walk to the water, and the home comes with beach rights, too.
