48 Turkey Hill South Wins Westport Historic Preservation Award

The house at 48 Turkey Hill South--for many years the residence of Martha Stewart-- is among eight winners of the Westport Historic District Commission 2009 Preservation Awards.

The HDC said it recognized owners Chuck and Casey Berg “for enlarging this outstanding Greek Revival house in a sensitive and appropriate manner...The unobtrusive addition, which is at the rear of the house, does not detract from the original historic structure.”

Known as The Andrews-Thorpe-Howe House, c.1820 the HDC said, “This is an example of how an antique house can be successfully rehabilitated to accommodate the needs of a 21st century family.”

Wow, I never would have guessed it was an addition - it looks marvelous - love the side entrance! Are there tours or can we just ask for the key?

I have always loved that house. I am glad that the new owners are taking such good care of it.
