The Skinny: Built in 1785 by "one of Westport's founding families," this impressive riverfront estate was once the home of Edward Warburg, a philanthropist who was a founding trustee of New York's Museum of Modern Art and who is frequently referred to as the father of American ballet. In Warburg's day, the estate spanned nearly 40 acres, but 37 of those acres have since been donated to the city of Westport. The grounds retain 100 feet of river frontage, along with the stately main house—a 13-room "French Colonial" with five bedrooms and six bathrooms—and a swimming pool. The "home for all seasons" is listed for $2.38M.
