More fabulous inventory!

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.

The Conservatory… or what everyone calls the sunroom.

So many windows!

So many windows! And their furniture looks terrific here in this room.  I was thinking about that young designer Graham Veysey of Good Bones Design as I was walking through this house.  Such a perfect palate for her to come in and create her magic.  Check out her website.  She is building a very nice portfolio.

Open kitchen and dining is very appealing.
