William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Historic John Waterbury House


Property Offers Rich History and Legend in Prime Location

Darien, Conn. – March 12, 2014 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed the renovated and updated historic John Waterbury House in the heart of Darien, C.T. Darien Brokerage agent Linda Malpass has the listing, which is offered at $5,995,000.

The historic home is set on over two acres overlooking a land trust meadow with ancient trees and manicured lawns. It was once the dwelling of Lieutenant John Waterbury (1752-1829) who fought in the American Revolution. Since then the cottage and barn have been carefully renovated preserving the original fireplaces, beams and floorboards. The courtyard that embraces the original structure has also been preserved, keeping intact the surrounding stonework.

The main residence accentuates the character of the vintage one, and provides all current amenities for today’s luxury living. High ceilings, large windows offering natural light, and a masterfully designed floor plan allo enhance the beauty of the old residence and accentuate the sweeping vistas of the landscaped grounds and terraces.

“This home is the perfect combination of old and new,” said Malpass. “A blend of premier new construction and a vintage 1700’s carriage house create a unique country estate offering sophistication, character, distinction and style.”

Completely renovated and updated in 2013, the home offers a total of 7,600 square feet of living space with 15 rooms including eat-in kitchen, family and living room with fireplaces and seven bedrooms as well as five full and two half baths. Additional amenities include central cooling, a full finished basement, beach rights and an attached three-car garage.
