Westport Beach House

WESTPORT, CT

2013

2,400 sq ft.

4 BED 3.5 BATH

After Hurricane Sandy caved in the basement walls and flooded the first floor, the house on this tiny beachside lot was condemned, and the owner had to move fast for FEMA financing to occur. Because the architect Sellars Lathrop had completed an extensive renovation of the owner’s previous residence, they were quick to understand the owner’s need for a super efficient, economical, no maintenance and modest 2,400 sq ft 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath new house. Bensonwood fabricated the exterior shell of the house in their New Hampshire factory and trucked the 2 1/2 story structure, complete with windows, to the site. This collaborative teamwork helped the owner achieve her goals by creating a beautiful, sustainable and FEMA compliant home. This residence is Energy Star qualified with a HERS score of 47.
