Designer Kat Burki Decides to Sell
Just last month we reported on tiny-but-stylish Southport as the town of choice for architects and interior designers. This month, we learned interior designer and Southport resident Kat Burki has listed her circa-1730 Colonial on Hulls Farm Road for $2.4 million. This is good news for buyers looking for the hardest house to come by—an immaculate antique that has retained the charm of an old house with none of the heartaches, like dirt crawl space basements and seven-foot ceilings. The original house has been expanded to 4,909 square feet and now has five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The home is listed with Melanie Smith Prudential Connecticut Realty in Southport (203-319-3403).

Wilton Roundup
It's a 75-minute train ride between Wilton and New York City, and it's those extra minutes beyond the one-hour-commute marker that help keep the town low key. Yes, the train station bustles with commuters every morning, but the rest of the town has a quiet, family-friendly feel. A pretty place that lacks the cultural dazzle of neighboring Westport to the south and the jaw-dropping affluence of New Canaan to the west, Wilton is defined by no one attribute. There are condos, but also horse farms. There are rich people, but no celebrities.
