DARIEN, Conn. -- Nancy Dauk of Halstead Property has the perfect Darien home for potential buyers seeking waterfront views without the concerns of waterfront living.
Her listing at 28 Swifts Lane, named Hemlock Cove, offers sweeping views of Gorhams Pond. Since the homesits high above the water, new buyers will not have to worry about a storm surge when the next hurricane hits our area. The setting provides all the visual waterfront appeal with none of the risk.
"Elevation is of prime importance when dealing with waterfront properties", says Dauk who is co-listing the home with Holly and David Hawes.
The property is being offered for the first time in 30 years for $4,199,000. Custom built by the current owners in 1979 with 5,459 square feet, the home is filled with natural light and includes 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, with a master bedroom on the first floor.
Special features include a large formal dining room and professionally equipped kitchen open to a spectacular family room with beamed vaulted ceiling with walls of glass overlooking the pond. Upon entering the two story entrance hall you are immediately amazed by commanding panoramic waterfront views.
"The unique vantage point sets this house apart from other properties in the area", says Dauk. In winter you are in a setting from Currier and Ives with skaters gliding across the ice in the rosy pink glow of winter sunsets. In summer it is home to snowy egrets and great white herons swooping down over the pond. This is a truly amazing property filled with indigenous wildlife.
Beautifully sited on a private cul de sac with over 3 acres and 435 feet of shoreline, the house sits adjacent to nearly an acre of open space offering even more privacy. A special bonus includes a custom pool and spa enhanced with superb stonework and perennial gardens, perfect for relaxing and contemplating life on the pond in the warm days of summer, or the perfect spot from which to launch a kayak for further exploration.
