Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman just bought this old Colonial-style house in Westport, Connecticut. Known as CompoBello, the “mini estate” was built in the 1920s at the end of a long, gated, cobblestone drive. Take a look!
Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulman’s House in Westport
At first I thought there was a wreath on the door, but a close-up shows it’s actually a round window:
Kinda cool, right? You don’t see doors like that very often.
The listing said:
European sophistication meets beach cottage chic at this private oasis steps from Compo Beach and Longshore Golf+Beach Club. Tucked away at the end of a Belgian block-style cobblestone driveway on .90 acres, this 1920 home is renovated throughout to the highest standards.
The dining room has a stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings:
There are two kitchens. This is the main one, open to the great room:
The space features an AGA range and a brick fireplace.
The second floor has two wings. Love this built-in storage in the hall:
There are 5 bedrooms + 6 baths.
The master suite has a walk-out to a large redwood deck that’s crying out for a table and comfy chairs:
A sitting room:
A second, smaller kitchen leads to the pool:
The cozy banquette is pretty sweet:
I’ll be hanging out in this kitchen and you can have the bigger one. 😉
A barn-style pool house dates to the 1920s:
It has 1,500 square feet with wide plank oak floorboards, built-in book shelves, and a loft space:
I think they should decorate it like the “Princess Diaries” firehouse Anne Hathaway’s character Mia lived in:
Wouldn’t that be fun? They could add a spiral staircase and a firefighter’s pole, ha.
The real firehouse was on the market a few years ago, and you can see it here.

I picked up a book by Jane Green yesterday that kept me up half the night reading (those are the best kind, aren’t they?). Her author bio on the back says she lives in Westport herself, so maybe she and Anne Hathaway can start hanging out, ha. Green always gives her characters great houses to live in, so I’d love to see hers, too! 🙂
