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!

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.

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:
