The Darien Foundation was established in 2007. The Darien Foundation is the result of the expanded mission of the Darien Technology Foundation (founded in 1998). This expanded mission allows the Foundation to fund community capital projects in addition to increasing the financial resources for technology in the Darien community.

The Darien Foundation awarded over $2.3 million in grants to the Darien Public Schools, Darien Emergency Services and many community organizations.

The Darien Foundation looks forward to funding capital projects in the Darien community. Capital projects could include such things as sports field improvements, Senior Center amenities, downtown enrichments and park improvements, to name a few.

We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated Foundation in our town and we applaud them and all of the volunteers on this event. THANK YOU!!!!

Country Club Living – Opportunity Knocks!

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

It is hard to imagine that in Darien there is only a handful of properties on the market that offer the out door amenities that qualify as “country club living”.  Understandably if you are going to play doubles, or even a couple of sets of singles, you are most likely going off to one of the exceptional clubs in town. But, if your dream home includes a pool AND tennis court, you will want to check out these properties. Summer time in Darien is fabulous, but even more so if you have your own private pool and tennis court!  August is a GREAT time to look, because no one else is!

66 Bridle Trail, has 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. It is offered through Kelly Associates at $3,495,000. At the end of this very quiet and private lane, situated on two level acres, you will be amazed at how pretty the property is.  The house is not bad either! A beautifully done interior combined with the luxuries of a pool and tennis court will sway you to seriously consider this property!  It’s a beauty.

At the end of Bridle Trail, you will find this beautiful 1940’s Colonial and fully loaded property!

Where else would you want to be!

Tennis anyone? Most people won’t get a chance to play at Wimbledon, but they can play with you!










If you would like to see any of these properties, call us.  We would love to show either or both to you.

We are back after a July Break!

Friday, August 3, 2012

We hope you are having a wonderful summer.  It has been a while since we posted, but we are back with lots to talk about.  Summer time brings us out of doors for us to enjoy what we have been working for and what we enjoy most: gardens, sailing, tennis, hiking or simply enjoying the view!

As always, gardens can be a big part of what makes a home special.  Spending time up on  Mount Desert Island every summer is so inspiring. Acadia and Frenchman’s Bay offer a very unusual opportunity for spectacular landscapes and gardens.  The Mount Desert Garden Club takes great pride in their small but not insignificant membership, and they should!  It is where you will find some of the prettiest, most dramatic as well as some of the most well thought out gardens in New England.  Every Summer, six gardens are chosen to participate in the Garden Tour.  Here are some highlights that will inspire!


Fantastic potted clay pots surround this spectacular house on Somes Sound in Northeast Harbor.

The property combines native planting and GLORIOUS container gardening.



Views of Somes Sound from the native pink granite terrace.


A mossy sanctuary that leads to a beautiful garden in Seal Harbor, ME


A spectacular border that shows off many of the prettiest summer blooms


Meadow Rue. Fabulous!


A natural garden pool made from the native pink granite found all over the Island.

Another Seal Harbor spectacular.

Overlooking Bracy Cove. Very special.

You just never know what you may find on the Maine coast!

Looking out to the Cranberry Islands.

All over the property were these fabulous lanterns to light the way at night. What a beautiful way to discretely post lights around your property!

Another spectacular garden in Seal Harbor.

Landscape Architect Dennis Bracale has combined a Tudor garden in the front of the house with and East Asian waterfall courtyard against the cliffs of the mouton behind the house.

Backed up against the mountain behind the house, she is watching…

Not a bad view over Bracy Cove
