Just Dreamy

461 Middlesex is perfection on the 14th Hole.

461 Middlesex is perfection. Yes, right here on Middlesex. Not Surrey. And, that creeping hydrangea is to die for!

Gracious. Grand and unpretentious. What else are you looking for?

Gracious. Grand and unpretentious. What else are you looking for?

Situated on several acres, and set far back from the road, 461 Middlesex Road is the house that offers sophisticated yet casual, unpretentious yet gracious living right in the middle of Darien.  In fact, it is overlooking the 14th hole at Wee Burn Country Club. SOLD AND CLOSED.


Pretty dreamy, right? And it is one of the few spots in town you will not hear the highway.

It is certainly one of the most special houses we have seen. Six bedrooms, six and a half baths, ceiling height, big windows, beautiful floors, and bones bones bones. You can imagine all the bells ringing at Real in Darien when this came on the market. Listed by Houlihan Lawrence, asking $4,250,000. SALE PENDING 


It all just feels so lovely. Starting right here in the entry.


Who doesn’t need a winding staircase like this!

I love this photograph (House & Garden 2015) and pictured instantly as I looked up the stairs at 461 Middlesex.

A fabulous room overlooking the 14th hole at Wee Burn. I have been looking through some Jeffrey Bilhuber books lately; some call him the modern day Billy Baldwin. He would be a fabulous choice for this house.


You will be hosting Thanksgiving for EVERYONE here. What a room for a party! Lacquer those walls in your favorite color et voila!

This would be fabulous in the library. (House & Garden)

I thought of this vignette as I stood in the library at 461 Middlesex. We don’t often see rooms/houses that can handle such fabulous scale.  (House & Garden 2015)


open to the terraces on two sides, and out to the pool. A kitchen where you will find yourself as happy as any other room in the house.


Super ceiling height. Of course our readers know by now that we are always looking for that!


Third floor “teen” room they may never come down from. When they are all home from school, it will be a “go to” spot for them all. There is a full bath up here so it is perfect for friends who end up staying over.


You will need this cave since this is truly a house for entertaining. Start collecting.


Vodka Tonic anyone?


Access from the kitchen on this side and will make for wonderful summer pool parties.

Pretty dreamy, right!


We love the floor plans. Always look at the floor plans.



Playroom, or another bedroom. Either way it is wonderful space.


This is truly one of a kind here in town.  (yes there are others but they are not on the market). WE LOVE THIS HOUSE!
