London Calling – WOW price reduction

May 10, 2016

Lately I have been following Rita Konig‘s columns in House & Garden, ELLLE Decor, and a few other of my favorite books. Rita’s website highlights her undisputed talent in the design world – not to mention her sensational taste making style. She is a perfect choice for creating cozy chic and comfortable interiors which instantly brings to mind 123 Middlesex Road.  You may remember a few years ago it was on the market and was in need of some thoughtful renovations.  Today, it is back on the market in full glory with a new floor plan and terrific updates.  This just seems like a ‘no brainer’ if you are looking in this price range. Listed by Houlihan Lawrence and asking $1,115,000.

So charming. And a beautiful color for the front door. 123 Middlesex Road is the perfect cottage.

Whether it is London, New York or the suburbs of either city, Rita would be a great partner to help transform this new house into your perfect new home.

More fabulous inventory!

March 23, 2016

What a treat to have more new listings that are equally appealing yet so different.  And, on opposite sides of town which reinforces how great all the neighborhoods are here in Darien.

Hallelujah! The Connecticut Colonial is not entirely dead and gone to the massive, new construction Darien has seen so much of in the last ten or fifteen years (not that we haven’t liked a few of the new houses).  11 Point O’Woods is that charming Connecticut Colonial. Very authentic and lovely. Very well taken care by its owners who clearly understand how to combine chic and charm.  Great wall paper and fabric throughout the house gives you all the “new” you need! Love this house.  Listed by Halstead, asking $1,795,000. Four bedrooms, four and one half baths, situated on about an acre. LISTING CANCELLED

11 Point O'Woods. Built in 1938, is sited just right on its 2+ acres.

Big gracious living room with beautiful original details still intact

Big gracious living room with beautiful original details still intact. Kept thinking about how Meg Braff would pull this together for someone – always important to remember their stuff won’t be here when you move in! Meg has some great wall paper and furniture, and she has a knack for pulling together a classic look without making it look matronly. As House Beautiful states, she pulls it together so that “family heirlooms and bold gestures are right at home”. Her shop is easy to get to in Locust Valley or check out her web site.

Gorgeous color in the Den. In fact the whole house feels fresh and lovely with color and style.

121 Leroy also just came on – listed by Linda Malpass – and it’s a fabulous “in town” option.  Perfectly situated to walk to restaurants, the Darien train station, and Tilly Pond Park. Renovated, fresh and ready to go with a terrific back yard. A perfect house to get your feet wet here in Darien.  Four bedrooms, two and one half baths Asking $1,275,000. SOLD

121 Leroy Avenue. A great spot in town.

Out on The Trail

March 7, 2016

As we roll into March, I am happy to report that there are a lot of really fabulous houses on the market in all price ranges. Spring is in the air and the weather conditions are perfect for house hunting so if you are thinking of making a move, get out there! More than 12 Brokers Open Houses last week had us “high tailing it” all over town and gave us a peek into what buyers can look forward to.

By far, I have to say, the Jewel in The Crown on the Open House circuit was 57 Knollwood.  Set at the end of the street, and on a beautiful open lot. You really can’t do better than this.  Demonstrating that Big is NOT BETTER this house has 4 bedrooms, two full and one half bath, high ceilings and beautiful details that include a slate roof. Asking $2,250,000 offered through Houlihan Lawrence. SOLD AND CLOSED

Quintessential "Father of The Bride House" built in 1942.

The decorating and the detail in this house deserves its own blog. Pimlico was hired for this job and they deserve a shout out for this one. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Next I headed over to the two new listings on Beach in the beloved neighborhood of Noroton Manor. Both houses are terrific and both are listed by Houlihan Lawrence.

5 Beach, asking $1,895,000, has four bedrooms, three and one half baths and a massive finished basement! Great curb appeal and some very nice detail in this 1931 house.

A really nice 1931 house in a lovely sought after neighborhood… do I sound like a realtor? But, it really is.

16 Beach also came on this week, and it too has a lot to offer.  Including opportunity for expansion!  Four bedrooms, three and one half baths, flat back yard. It’s renovated and move in ready.  This house is a great option in a super location. Asking $1,625,000. ACCEPTED OFFER

Built in the 1920's and still going strong. Good design holds up!

17 Winding Lane, located in Tokeneke, has four bedrooms, three and one half baths.

Feeling proud that HL has such great inventory. But, I will say that the house on 3 Edgerton Court, listed by Halstead, was also a very well done. Deceivingly small from the outside, the house has five bedrooms, four and one half baths and a third floor adding yet more space to the spacious floor plan. Totally renovated in 2007, the house looks brand new and really well maintained.  Great price point for so much space!  And, you really can walk to the train from this address as well as to the middle and high schools!

Or, if you are thinking about selling your house give us a call.  We would love to help you learn more about the market and discuss where you house fits in.  After all, we love real estate!

Indoor Outdoor Rooms

February 19, 2016

Never been a huge fan of house plants. Until I noticed the way designer Ken Fulk created this vignette in the March 2016 Elle Decor.  (The rest of the house is pretty fabulous as well. Check out the San Francisco house in Elle Decor). 

IMG_0186-e1455286925955

ADORE this!

Looking at this photograph made me think about how to add a house plant (or a cluster) somewhere in my house.  And those urns and pots are fab! May be time for a trip to Terrain or a little shopping on One Kings Lane! It also made me think about conservatories and orangeries which are always a glorious addition to any house.

check out Vale Garden Houses. Such a fabulous way to put an addition on.

So pretty and you really don’t see many of these around here. Not your typical sun room.

Check out Vale Garden Houses. Such a fabulous way to add space to your house.

Check out Vale Garden Houses,  but there are several good companies who do this. Parish Conservatories and David Salisbury would be two other recommendations.

Love this one too.  Looks absolutely fabulous.

 

Speaking of conservatories, we saw a wonderful example of one on the market yesterday.  245 Middlesex Road, just listed by William Raveis in Darien, offers a beautiful large conservatory making it a unique offering in the market today. The asking price of this house is $3,200,000.

Recently added to the house, this lovely conservatory has a copper roof, radiant heat floors, and a wet bar. Opening up to the terrace and gardens, it is a very special part of this house.

We are back… and this one is a “doozie”!

February 12, 2016

This is THE quintessential “House on The Avenue”.  Built in 1910, and renovated to perfection, 138 Mansfield sets a tone for “in town” living in Darien we love. Of course, most people associate a house of such stature to be situated by the water, or inside one of our “Associations” but that is part of what makes it so great! It is not!  This gorgeous house is walking distance to town and the train, across the street from school yet still offers a gracious and private compound with only the most bespoke attention to detail in it’s construction. Five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, approximately 6050 square feet (not including a fabulous finished basement).  Asking 4,895,000 offered by Houlihan Lawrence. HOUSE IS TEMP OFF THE MARKET as of 3/22/16.

The windows are custom with single panes. You just don't see this kind of attention to detail in most houses. Not since Shagbark have we noticed such attention to detail.

The custom antique glass windows in every room “twinkle” – they are so pretty.  Not since Shagbark have we noted all this bespoke detail under one roof.

The kitchen not only

The Charles Edwards lanterns hang above the island in the sun drenched kitchen. All the light fixtures, and hardware, in this house are of the highest quality and timeless in design.

Sitting room in the kitchen. No, it’s not for all the kids to sit around and watch TV while dinner is made.  It is a beautiful, informal place to gather and sit by the fire and talk (or enjoy your book).  So lovely.

As you can see, even in a house built in 1910, there is still a feeling of “openness” so that when you walk in the front door you are immediately drawn into the heart of the home.

Third floor offer a place for "hanging out"

Third floor offers a place for “hanging out”. For your guests, or anyone in the house.  An excellent use of the space, you will find a guest room, an office and a place to watch The Masters.
