DARIEN, Conn. – There are no compromises at the home for sale at 272 Mansfield Ave. in Darien.
Listed by Bruce Baker of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, the four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home combines sophistication, style, detail and scenic charm. It is listed for $3.195 million.
“It’s very unique because of its design,’’ Baker said. “It has a Nantucket feel. It’s open, but modern. It has a simplistic, minimal feel that is really beautiful.”
The home sits on 2 acres and abuts the Country Club of Darien. It offers 6,075 square feet of space, and many updates inside and out.
Potential buyers will love the Peter Dean state-of-the-art kitchen that is light, bright and equipped with top-of-the-line appliances. It opens to a great room with a natural stone fireplace with 20-foot ceilings. A large loft overlooks the great room.
"I’m finding that many buyers enjoy having the family room off the kitchen,’’ Baker said. “This goes one better because of the loft. The kids can be within sight, but all the toys and fun kid stuff is not all over the family room! And that’s what people want. This house perfectly fits the bill.”
The home includes two fireplaces, a home office, an amazing great room, a library, a recreation room, three car garage, large high ceiling basement, central air, city water and sewer. Baker said recent renovations were completed throughout the home.
The home is just as beautiful outside. Baker said the current owners hired a renowned Australian landscape designer. In addition, high brush and trees were removed from the property boundary with the golf course that added stunning sightlines to the course while still being far removed from players.
“There was no sightline to the course before,’’ Baker said. “There’s a lake that’s in direct view. It all came together and it’s an amazing property.”
The home also includes a pool, underground lawn sprinkler, tennis court and gardens. There is a porch, terrace and patio for outside entertaining as well.
Mansfield Avenue was once the most coveted section of Darien for early residents. Baker believes this home is a throwback to that era.
“What makes the house unique is the architecture, with its high-vaulted ceilings and many other features, combined with the view and the privacy,’’ Baker said. “It’s the flow of the home, and the perfect combination between the interior features and outdoor landscaping. It’s relaxed living in a luxury environment.”
