William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Participates in Highest Darien Sale Since 2013

Agents Nancy and Phil Crosland Represent Buyer in sale of home once owned by actor Christopher Plummer

Darien, Conn. February 20, 2015 William Pitt Sotheby’s International RealtyDarien, Conn. agents Nancy and Phil Crosland represented the buyer in the highest sale Darien has seen since October 2013, the firm announced today. The Long Island Sound-front property, located on Long Neck Point Road and owned at one time by actor Christopher Plummer, sold for $11,200,000.

With over 200 feet of direct waterfront, the property offers more than two manicured acres with a private beach, stone terrace and custom-designed oceanfront swimming pool with spa. Originally built in 1866 as a carriage house, the home has been transformed over the years to maintain its historic integrity by several owners, including the actor Christopher Plummer. The result is a 7,739 square-foot estate designed to emphasize its water views, particularly from the kitchen, adjoining family room, library, master suite, office, guest suite and four balconies overlooking the shoreline. Additional living spaces include a large great room and dining room with 12 foot ceilings, nine baths and a lower-level recreation room and gym.

This transaction was the highest in Darien since October 2013, when another Long Neck Point home sold for $14,900,000. In this January 2015 sale, Halstead represented the seller.

“This property’s understated elegance, warmth and historic architectural detail, combined with its prime waterfront location, make it one of a kind. We are honored to have taken part in this sale,” said Nancy Crosland.

“This sale demonstrates that there will always be strong and ongoing demand for unique waterfront properties such as this one, with its coveted location and breathtaking views,” said Phil Crosland.
