Great Buys

Friday, March 16, 2012

For buyers starting out in Darien, there are two great opportunities today on the market.  IF they are still available – they came on this week and will go fast – in our opinion, these are “best buys” on the market under $1,000,000.  Its hard to find something done, spacious and in a good location these days.  77 Mansfield and 103 Hollow Tree Ridge Road offer all of that.   Hollow Tree has a very good Master bath and a good bonus room. Mansfield feels very spacious downstairs with an open kitchen looking out onto a family room and yard.  At Mansfield, you can put in a second bath downstairs that would add value to this already well priced house.  Love that you can walk to Royle from 77 Mansfield too! Both properties really are “move in condition” and both are walking distance to Darien’s trains and other amenities.  Check them out!

If you would like to see either of these properties, please contact us.  Both of these properties are offered through Kelly Associates.

Fab Master Bath

Incredible Master Bath


This Master Bath sold me at this home at 13 Oak Park Avenue!  The kitchen may not be as FAB as the Master Bath, but how can you top this Waterworks-like bathroom.  It is stunning and we love that the vanity is painted a grey/blue instead of white.   The vaulted ceilings make the room soar-something you can easily do if you go up and use the attic space.  Most likely you will not need that little bit of space in the attic and it will pay dividends with that extra height.  It can give you a reason to buy that chandelier you have been wanting to buy….perhaps a great vintage pagoda find (check out Circa Who for some great ones). Calcutta-gold counter tops and radiant-heated floors makes it feel like your at the Mayflower Inn in Washington, Connecticut.

It is so nice to see a center hall in a smaller home, and just adds to the graciousness.   The sky-lit hallway upstairs drenches it in light and makes it feel so open and spacious.  It is a shame the light fixtures are not included because they just give it that little yet important touch (but you can buy them at Circa Lighting so don’t worry)!  For sale through Round Hill Partners in Greenwich.  If you are working with an agent, this is not a solicitation.  THIS HOUSE IS CURRENTLY NOT ON THE MARKET (5/4/12)
