DARIEN, Conn. – Situated on the aptly named Contentment Island Road, this Darien waterfront estate is something out of a Fitzgerald novel. The property consists of the 8,500-square-foot main house, three outbuildings, a pool and docks and offers waterfront on the Long Island Sound and Scotts Cove.
Endless windows throughout the home frame regal lawns and the water views beyond. The gourmet kitchen is expertly appointed and awaiting a chef who likes to entertain. And the library, with its hand-waxed Irish pine walls, is the perfect setting for you to begin your own great American novel.
The master bedroom suite gives you all the space you could want with his and her separate bathrooms. Four additional en-suite bedrooms fill out the sleeping quarters in the main house. And three Juliet balconies on the upper floor will have you mixing literary references as you bask in the saltwater breeze. Underneath it all is an opulent wine cellar topped by a domed ceiling.
Of course, any proper estate boasts at least one guesthouse. Here, your guests will enjoy a 1,500-square-foot house with a fireplace and exercise room.
If you are in the market for an estate of legendary proportion, this might just be the place for you. Contact listing agent Pam Spellane at (203) 461-3638 or email@example.com.
