This brand new, gorgeous home was completed in May 2013.  4 + bedrooms/ 5 1/2 baths, a top of the line kitchen, finished basement and nothing left for you to do, this house has all the “bells and whistles”.  But, come see for yourself.  There is nothing else on the market like it right now so call us, you won’t be disappointed.

Large, sunny dining room for 12.


Find me another kitchen like this… it’s a beauty.


This is where you will want to be.


Entertaining is a breeze. And gracious.


Breakfast anyone?


It’s hard to find a living room you actually want to be in. I promise you this is one to hold on to.


Think Super Bowl Sunday.  It’s where the party is.


Get it?


Light that fire… The Master.


The Master Bath.


Another angle. But seriously, this is a “Fab Master Bath”.


The kids have never had it so good.


Oh, to be the only boy! Yours will love this.


Sunlight. Isn’t that what we all demand?


To be the oldest!


This is where the kids hang… were you wondering what to do with teenagers?


Work out?? And, yes, you can plug in your LIFESYCLE. The fuse won’t blow!


We would love to show you this unbelievable house.  The generator alone should at least peak  your interst.  Call us. We would love to show you around.

Out on the trail…..for $900,000

Friday, September 6, 2013

The summer is a distant memory now, and it was back to a busy week of open houses. There was an influx of homes in the $900,000 price range so we thought we would high light a few.

15 Gardiner Street is an impeccably maintained home. 4 bedrooms (2 up and 2 down) and 2 baths in this little jewel. Priced at $899,000 through Kelly Associates, this will go quickly.


Wonderful curb appeal.


The living room.


One of the bedrooms used as a family room.


Very sunny kitchen.


Love the rope railing on the deck.


Could this nursery be sweeter?


Another look.


Master bedroom upstairs.


288 Noroton Avenue has three bedrooms and two full baths, a two car garage, and is centrally located.  Priced at $959,000, offered through Kelly Associates.  

Built in 1939, this cape has good bones, good space and great potential.

The den is off the kitchen and can easily be opened up to create the open kitchen/ living space so many buyers are looking for.


A very “workable” space.


The master bedroom is really large and light.

21 Lake Drive is a 4 bedroom ranch with lots of space. Listed for $984,000 through Kelly Associates.


The living room.


The kitchen which is open to a family room.


A great spot to read the paper.


The kitchen opens to a family room. Love all the windows.

There is also 123 Middlesex on the higher end of this range.  Take a look at our blog on it here.

A little imagination and a lot of inspiration

Ooozing with charm and loaded with potential.

123 Middlesex is a sleepy charmer tucked privately off of the road. It’s a fabulous central location close to the Woodland Park and Middlesex Middle School.  With 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1 half bath on 1.2 acres, this stone and stucco cape has arched doorways, fieldstone fireplaces and interesting space to create a special 1920’s cottage filled with all your favorite details.  I was pleasantly surprised at the potential this home has. Be sure to take a look if you are in the market. Offered by Laura Kolderup at Kelly Associates, asking $1,049,000.


Love that fireplace. Would love to see this all white or an edgy color. Possibly Farrow & Balls Blue Black.


This staircase has great lines.


The kitchen is in good shape. You could even take down the wall and make it open to the family/dining room.

Here are some ideas that would be fabulous at

123 Middlesex:

Simple transition between outdoors and indoors. I Always love brick terracing and walkways. It is also great indoors.

This white room works so well!


Or go the opposite and use contrast.


Don’t be afraid of a wallpaper or color in a small space. It actually works to it’s advantage.


Or cozy it up.  The walls really work here.

Let the simplicity of the space do the work.

It can be simple AND hip. (actually I think smaller is always hipper).


Don’t be afraid to throw a pop of color in there.


The ideas are endless. Go for it!  This house is a blank canvas waiting for your touch!

Out on the trail…

Saturday, September 15, 2012

WOW, what a busy week.  We had a ton of open houses and here are some highlights (there are some that are going to have their own special blog…stay tuned)…..


6 Hummingbird Lane, asking $3,495,000, has a lot of space that works so well. It has several spots off the epicenter of the home, the gorgeous kitchen.  There is room for everything but it feels like a real “family” home. The landscaping is really something special, many original and stunning features to it. Listed by Cathy Lawton at Kelly Associates.

Look at the amazing curb appeal.

LOVE this family room. From the ceiling, the fireplace, to the windows surrounding it. This is off the kitchen and has wonderful outdoor access.

The kitchen is fabulous and is sited so well in this home.

There was a house on Middlesex that caught our eye as something with real potential.  375 Middlesex Road is asking $1,895,000. This house has good scale, ceiling height (even though it was built in 1954), nice wide hallways upstairs, and a ton of space 6 or 7 bedrooms, 5 baths, and 2 acres!. The front hall is large and gracious. The livingroom and the dining room will accomodate any large party comfortably. The house is well maintained, so a good paint job, and some new rugs will go a long way until you have your “fab” plans set.  There have only been two owners since 1954 so I am going to venture to say that it also has good Karma.  I would urge all you buyers looking for a lot of space, a central Darien location, and want to create your own Shanghrila, to look at this house.  This could be exactly what you have been waiting for, and there could be some good value here.  Listed by Gail Ord at Coldwell Banker/Darien.

375 Middlesex Road

Think about your favorite wall paper because this is the front entry has what it takes to handle it! Good size and ceiling height.
