Premier Darien Waterfront Residence on Contentment Island in the Private Tokeneke Association! Contentment Island is connected to Tokeneke by private road over a beautiful stone causeway and sparkling inlets, through stone pillars and along the shoreline. Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac, this property offers private coastal living, just 40 miles to NYC.

Beautifully sited on 2.0 acres, this completely renovated, 5 bedroom home, sits high above the water line, offering spectacular panoramic views from most rooms and direct access to Scott's Cove and Long Island Sound!  A private dock, 700' of water frontage and two moorings, makes this location a boater's dream... with easy access to Long Island Sound and calm waters for kayaking and sailing. A spacious one bedroom cottage, with beautiful living space and outstanding views is just a few steps from the main house, making it a perfect retreat for guests or additional office/studio space.   

This property has historic associations and many of the beautiful original details were carefully preserved during the renovation; 9'+ plus ceilings throughout, detailed mouldings, seven working fireplaces, and heart of antique pine hardwood flooring throughout. Renovation was the work of Hiland Hall Turner Architects and the interiors were designed by Award Winning designer Louise Brooks & Falotico Associates. It is a perfect blend of exceptional craftsmanship, and gracious style living.  

A custom entry foyer leads to spacious living spaces with direct water views; Living Room with exquisite mouldings and original fireplace, Formal Dining Room with beautifully detailed coffered ceiling, custom wood paneled Den/Office with wetbar and fireplace, an original Porch, (now a four season Sunroom with heated limestone flooring and panoramic views of the water and gardens), open Kitchen/Family room with top appliances, wetbar, wine fridge, custom built-ins, counter space for five, dining alcove for six, convenient desk area, a beautiful fireplace, and panoramic direct water views.  An outfitted mudroom with a convenient separate entrance and large laundry room with private pocket doors, completes the main level.  

The second level includes; 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 full baths; ALL with water views. One of the bedrooms has a fireplace and an attached original sleeping porch, which has been converted to a four season office/media/sleepover space overlooking the water... very special! 

The Primary Bedroom Suite, with wrap around windows overlooking the water, includes a private sitting room and fireplace.  A his/her bathroom with marble counters, a steam shower, a hydro tub, and two custom walk-in closets, completes this spacious and private space. The bedroom layout of the second floor provides privacy, yet family comfort. The third floor has four large rooms consisting of; a gym with fabulous water views, a large media/family room and a wonderful adjoining bedroom and full bath.  There is a bonus room which could be an additional bedroom or office (water views).
