Ryan Matthew Cohn and Regina Cohn are the curators and founders of The Oddities Flea Market,
one of the top oddities events in America. And like the event, Ryan and Regina’s home offers an endless sea of strange and unusual objects. Ryan was featured on the Science Channel TV show Oddities
Built in 1874 in the Italianate style, which originated in England in the early 19th century as a response to the period’s rigid architectural formalism, this sprawling Westport, Connecticut estate represents the style’s uniquely American turn in the late Victorian era. The beautifully detailed historic property features arched entryways, multiple functional fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and an attached greenhouse.
Also located on the grounds is a 19th-century chapel, a cottage, and what is known locally as “the Beached Boathouse”, a structure once situated on the banks of Dead Man’s Brook and relocated in the 1950s. The boathouse is the former home of actor and mariner Sterling Hayden, known for roles Dr. Strangelove, The Godfather, and The Long Goodbye. The main house and accompanying structures are currently undergoing extensive period-appropriate restorations.
