Westport, Massachusetts is part of 'Farmcoast New England,' known for its farming and fishing history. It is a picturesque town, filled with rolling meadows, working dairy farms, vineyards, charming villages, and a spectacular barrier beach (Horseneck Beach, whose sand dunes rival any on Cape Cod) that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the beautiful Westport River on which this house is located. The river is actually a salt water estuary that offers opportunities for everything from shellfishing to jet-skiing. Historical New Bedford is just 15 minutes away, as is outlet shopping in Fall River. Both Providence and famous Newport, Rhode Island are only a 45-minute drive.

About Chris or Laure Mulrooney
We are natives of the area, raised in Bristol County, Massachusetts and Bristol County, Rhode Island. Chris came home to Westport after going away to college and grad school, and Westport became home for Laure 10 years later when we married. Originally our "honeymoon cottage," this is the home where we started our family for the first five years of our life together. After we moved to Michigan and now Florida, our Westport home became the place for our extended family gatherings at least once or twice a year. In-between, it has been a place where we've been able to share the beauty and tranquility of Westport with so many other families through VRBO. We have always seen this home as a gift of the Lord, to be shared as He sees fit. "By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches." (Proverbs 24:3-4)

Why Chris or Laure Mulrooney chose Westport
The neighborhood of "Islands View Acres" is such a quiet and relaxing place to enjoy the beauty of nature and the fellowship of friends and family. The house is set on a hill, giving a bird's eye view of the estuary known as the East Branch of the Westport River. It is also tucked to one side of the neighborhood, abutting open land on the south. In the winter, this affords amazing views all the way down the river. Westport itself is an oasis of rural beauty and ocean influence, off the beaten path.
What makes this House unique
The house is on three levels, which affords three private spaces for families to spread out. It also has a big backyard, two porches (an open sun deck and a screened-in porch), and deeded water access to the estuary via a pier and boat launch.
