DARIEN, Conn. -- Privacy and convenience can be hard to find in Darien. A new listing at 141 Long Neck Point Road by Elaine Falkenberg of William Raveis provides exclusivity and proximity to transportation, as well as shopping and the heart of Darien.
The five-bedroom English cottage style home sits on 2.37 acres on the waterfront at Long Neck Point, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Darien. The home was built in 2003 by architect Bruce Beinfield and includes a main house with more than 7,800 square feet, a pool house and a studio/office building. Pear Tree Point Beach, the Darien train station and downtown Darien are all comfortably close. The home is listed for $13,495,000.
“It’s a spectacular property,’’ Falkenberg said. “It’s like your own private enclave. It’s a real wow.”
The property also includes a tennis court, boat dock and pool house. The pool is newly refurbished with a Gunite liner and includes a spa and waterfall. Click here to view a video of the property.
The home’s interior offers wide-ranging views of the waterfront. Nearly every room has a water view, with huge windows and high ceilings. “When I’ve shown the house people have said the ceilings are a lot higher than they thought,’’ Falkenberg said. “They really capture the view.”
Updated but rustic, the home offers all of the essential features required for 21st century living but maintains the charm of eras gone by.
“I think the best phrase is understated elegance,’’ Falkenberg said. “The wide plank floors, exposed wooden ceiling beams and open main floor plan are a nice look, and windows and doors face the water everywhere.”
There are 14 rooms in the home, including an oversized bathroom in the master suite with multiple walk-in closets. There is also an office, exercise room, butler's pantry, balcony and four car garage.
