WESTPORT \u2014 Built in 1969, the four-bedroom home at 5 Longview Road has lovely 180-degree water views paired with a mid-century modern vibe that\u2019s so in vogue. \u201cMid-century modern homes are unique, yet historic and oh so cool,\u201d said Linda Durakis, a listing agent for The Riverside Realty Group, who is also the homeowner. \u201cIt\u2019s kind of like living in a work of art. With huge windows and lots of natural materials, this style home helps people reconnect with nature.\u201d She and her husband, a high-end residential builder, love watching the sunsets from their patio. \u201cThe sky at sunset lights up with infinite shades of pinks, purples and oranges,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s breathtaking.\u201d Perched up a hill, the home offers an open floor plan on one level and is a short walk from Compo Beach.
