New to the market…slowly but surely!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

As we plod through this month of snow and ice, a few brave souls have taken the plunge and listed their homes.  We thank them!  Now it will be a race to see who can actually get their buyers to look at real estate in this weather! If there are any motivated buyers out there this week, here are a few new listings.  There were actually only four new listings but they covered the spectrum of price points in our market.

455 Mansfield, a six bedroom, eight and a half bath, five car garage, brick “georgian” manse came on the market (not to be out paced by all the snow that fell).  It looms large on Mansfield, certainly one of Darien’s loveliest “avenues”. It has a sweet pool and pool house that is coming in a close second to the house itself. Built in 2000 by the well known builder Girouard Associates, there is no “little piggy” that will blow this down!  Asking $5,250,000 offered through Kelly Associates by Doug Milne and Sheree Frank.

No, you will not have drinks wtih JR or even Crystal Carrington, but yes you will have a "rockin' party here"!

Love the feeling of being on “a campus”. Everything you need is at your finger tips. Someone is going to have a field day choosing patio furniture!


Next, there is the house at 32 Old Oak Road that Jane Glassmeyer at Halstead  had on last Spring.  It’s back on the market asking $2,595,000. It has a big nice kitchen, lots of huge bedrooms and is what everyone calls “done“.  If you are looking for something that sits privately on a cul de sac, and want to be up in the northern part of Darien, this could be your ticket!   Can’t show you a photo but call us if you would like to find out more on this property.

Then there is 30 Maple.


Mucho Charm here at 30 Maple.

It’s always had that “je ne sais quoi” about it.  It’s a house I always turn to look at as I drive by. It was built in 1875 and has some interesting architectural detail.  I think this is a real diamond in the rough, but apparently it is not so rough! I hear that it is in good shape with new electric, HVAC,  new insulation, as well as landscaping.  Sadly the snow prevents us from getting excited about the landscaping but with four bedrooms, three and a half baths, and about 3000 square feet this house is very interesting. Darien is running out of space. Good space with good bones is not easy to come by with an asking price of $1,275,000.  Offered by Gail Ord through Coldwell Banker/Darien.  Nice! (SOLD)

Can't argue that a big old fireplace like this isn't a selling point.

Can’t argue that a big old fireplace like this isn’t a selling point. Beautiful furniture and fabric is all you need. And sconces.


And lastly, there is 33 Fairview, listed by Deirdre McGovern at William Raveis/Darien.  Asking $1,399,999 this four bedroom, two and a half bath house is close to town, on a popular street that has seen some good real estate action in the last year.  So, don’t wait to see this if you are looking in this price range.  It won’t last! (SOLD)


Classic Connecticut Garrison Colonial. Seems to be a “no brainer” for many!


If you are not away for Spring break and you would like to go out and see some real estate this week, call us!  We are here.
