Escape the ordinary at this breathtaking country estate in Darien, Connecticut, where the charming beauty of New England meets the timeless qualities of Europe. The five-bedroom, five and a half-bath Colonial home, which is represented by Darien agent Ingrid Hess, and offered at $3,500,000, rests tranquilly on an acre of pristinely kept land located just an hour outside of Manhattan, and minutes from the region’s stunning Gold Coast. Live the dream every day at one of the most precious residential treasures around—the epitome of sheer luxury, warmth and all the comforts of home.
Elegance, sophistication and uniqueness all live in harmony within the walls of this one-of-a-kind, beautiful residence with a modern twist on a classic Colonial style. The 6,270 square-foot home rests on the top of a cul-de-sac in one of Darien’s most highly sought-after neighborhoods, which boasts both complete privacy and the convenience of being located near the area’s bustling town center. In 2005, the home underwent an extensive expansion and renovation in which no detail was overlooked. The gourmet kitchen opens to a family room, as well as a fabulous custom wine closet, formal living, dining room and study. In addition to first floor guest quarters and a luxurious master suite on the second floor complete with a gas fireplace, built-ins, his and her bathrooms, walk-in closets and more, a light-filled, open floor plan with ample windows as well as countless French and sliding doors promote year-round views of the property’s changing landscape in every season. The great outdoors seamlessly merges into the residence, highlighting the surrounding manicured grounds, wraparound porch and inviting backyard pool. A finished lower level additionally offers a media room, playroom and plenty of storage.
“A masterfully designed residence that has it all: location, privacy, views, versatility, well-manicured grounds, a pool, spacious interior and so much more,” said Hess. “Its setting is enchanting, its features and amenities are incredible and its overall lifestyle is unbeatable. It’s nearly impossible not to immediately fall for this picturesque Darien retreat, where residents can enjoy today’s lifestyle flawlessly incorporated with the superb, traditional simplicity of the past.”
