DARIEN, Conn. -- One of the most architecturally unique homes in Darien at 2 Driftway Lane has recently been listed by Bruce Baker of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
The 5-bedroom home, which was designed by acclaimed architect Nina Peck, is on the market for $3,895,000. The home was built in 2004 and sits on two acres, and is just minutes to town center and Long Island Sound.
“It’s reminiscent of a private mini estate, yet state of the art modern,’’ Baker said.
Peck, who is based in Old Lyme, has had homes featured in the New York Times, Wood Beautiful, Travel and Leisure and Better Homes & Gardens. She designed The Inn at Stonington, which was used as the set for Meryl Streep’s movie, Hope Springs, in 2012.
The Driftway Lane home is custom shingle style, features soaring 18-foot ceilings and large custom European windows that provide spectacular views of nature. The open design leads to spacious, purposeful rooms, including five full and five half bathrooms and over 7,000 square feet of living space. The home has been carefully designed by and offers its owners an intimacy in space that is ample and free from encumbrance..
The kitchen includes two large islands, top of the line appliances, including a La Cornue range, breakfast nook and a two-sided wood-burning fireplace.
Custom details include inlaid wood floors, iron railings and unique light fixtures.
“You just don’t find this type of architecture and craftsmanship in too many homes,’’ Baker said. “It truly is one of a kind.”
Other amenities include a 3-car garage, central air conditioning, generator, sprinkler system and security system.
The next owner will also enjoy the tranquility of the privately-set home, which also features a 600-square foot open outdoor terrace.
“I have not seen a property like this come along in a long time,’’ Baker said. “It’s a treasure home and a great value in a beautiful location with lots of amenities.”
