Bungalow of Sconset Square Hosts Trunk Show

When Leifer Properties, along with David Adam Realty, purchased Sconset Square in 2017, they committed to making this unofficial home design corner of Westport a priority. Many of the interior design tenants who rent this commercial space in Westport, continue to have thriving local businesses.

One particular shop, Bungalow, is a chic home and lifestyle boutique. As featured in Westport magazine, Bungalow is a home shop with the latest furnishings such as textiles and candles. It also has trendy jewelry and one-of-a-kind pieces. The vibe is a high-end worldly market, making it fun to search for something new. Wende Cohen, the owner and founder, has been the secret to the store’s success since 1996, with her impeccable taste in selecting items for sale.

Visit Bungalow any time to view all their collections. On Thursday, November 1 from 12-5pm they will host an exclusive shopping experience with Lined Design for their ‘Trunk Show Thursdays’ series.

This fall, Bungalow moved back into it’s original location at 4 Sconset Square, displaying the incredible flexibility and ease of having Leifer Properties and David Adam Realty as a landlord. Next time you are at the square, step back and take a look at the beauty of this location, as well as our other nearby Leifer Properties’ retail locations for your business property to rent in Westport.

Not your Traditional Office Space

At Leifer Properties, we are proud to offer what is considered classic office space in many of our Westport properties for rent around town. But, what makes us so special, is the variety of options we offer tenants. Our offices for lease in Westport at 27 and 27A Imperial Avenue are located in a Historic Victorian Mansion that has been converted into light and airy over-sized work spaces. Comprised of two buildings totaling 6,500 square feet, this location was transformed to commercial use in 1974 and has been maintained and updated ever since. Original features such as fireplaces, moldings, stained glass windows, porches, and etched glass oak doors have been restored and preserved over the years. Modern amenities, lighting, and mechanical systems have been constantly updated.

One unique opportunity when renting from a Leifer Property is the ability to easily switch office spaces between our buildings when there is availability. This means that tenants who start more traditional have the opportunity to eventually become one of the lucky few businesses to enjoy our more nontraditional locations. And, one perfect example, would be this charming Imperial Avenue office suite for rent in downtown Westport.
