It was an elegant and enjoyable night for all who attended our firm’s recent Darien open house event at 72 Peach Hill Road, an elegant residence perfectly appointed for luxurious home entertaining. The exclusive evening, entitled “Expanding Your Cellar: A Taste of Burgundy,” was organized in collaboration with the Sotheby’s Wine Department as part of the “Sotheby’s Wine: On the Road” series, which introduces participants to fine wine, watches and jewels from Sotheby’s auction house.
Strategically chosen to accommodate the night’s wine tasting theme, the property for sale impressed guests with its top-end wine cellar and spacious, welcoming rooms. After hearing New York City Sotheby’s Wine Specialist and Vice President Sales Director Eli Rodriguez speak about each wine featured in the tasting, clients, senior leadership and select agents attending the evening affair were able to sample the rare reds and whites while perusing a display of jewelry and watches straight out of the Sotheby’s auction catalog. This not only added another layer of excitement to the occasion, but it also epitomized the very essence of this great brand, highlighting our close relationship with the Sotheby’s auction house and all of its outstanding offerings. “Showing our clients that we value their properties in the same way that the auction house values their phenomenal inventory is remarkably special,” said Lynley Middleberg, manager of our Darien brokerage. “Having these incredible resources at our disposal is a tremendous asset for our clients. The level of exposure that this relationship affords is invaluable.”
The home itself is a five-bedroom, four and a half-bath contemporary masterpiece resting on 2.61 manicured acres of land in one of Darien’s most prestigious neighborhoods. The residence boasts a complete renovation since its original construction in 1970, now offering light-filled open spaces, a generously sized great room and an updated kitchen with all the latest appliances. These features, in addition to French doors leading to a stone terrace and large, in ground pool, provide all the essentials necessary for hosting a flawless evening at home. While the residence’s high-end wine cellar is a definite plus, other noteworthy amenities include a full gym, large, self-cleaning tropical fish aquarium, energy-efficient HVAC systems, a separate entrance for guests, master suite and more.
“It was an extraordinary event on all accounts, and we were honored to work with Sotheby’s,” said Bruce Baker, the agent from our firm’s Darien brokerage who represents this property. “Having the event at this particular residence allowed individuals to truly experience not only the brilliance of the items sold through Sotheby’s auction house first-hand, but also the lifestyle this home has to offer—chic luxury in a living space that represents the ultimate entertainer’s, and of course, wine lover’s dream.”
