Anne Hathaway just dropped $2.79 million on a sprawling farmhouse in Westport, Connecticut, and it looks like the perfect place to spend Christmas. The 4,561-square-foot oceanside estate was built in 1920 and has plenty of New England charm, with enough character to look like an English country cottage. Click through to take a peek inside the five-bedroom, six-bathroom space!
Modest white shingles cover the exterior of the house, while a red-painted door adds a punch of personality.
A large vintage-look mirror expands the front foyer, and makes for a grand entrance.
The open-concept main floor is ideal for family gatherings.
The kitchen is complete with farmhouse essentials like an Aga cooker and beadboard backsplash.
The formal dining room has a rustic vibe thanks to a stone fireplace and peaked ceiling.
French doors that open to an English garden give the living room an indoor-outdoor feel.
A stone fountain acts as the focal point in the garden.
On the second floor, the five bedrooms are spread throughout the two wings of the house.
The master suite boasts a private redwood deck that also overlooks the gardens.
The ensuite mixes old and new with a vintage-style vanity and marble tub.
An outdoor kitchen is ideal for summer entertaining…
…as is the pool with lounge chairs.
The property also features a 1,518-square-foot barn that can serve as an office or guest home.
It’s spacious enough to house an open-concept living and dining room.
It also comes with a kitchen so guests can have their own little space to prep food.
