1 Peabody Lane

1 Peabody Lane welcomes you.

1 Peabody Lane welcomes you. New cedar roof, and real wood shutters flank the colonial set in the center of Salem Straits. It has great curb appeal.

1 Peabody Lane in Salem Straits had a renovation in 2011 and the end result is absolutely perfect for someone looking for a bright and comfortable house that oozes “easy living”.   And, if you love China Seas, grass cloth and all things “at home in Fairfield County”, you are in luck. This house will have you at the front door. It is completely ‘move -in ready’. Five bedrooms, four and one half baths, with approximately 4,900 square feet of living space. Salem Straits Association includes a private beach down in Scott’s Cove, and an association boat dock that has direct access to Long Island Sound. Was asking $3,250,000 listed by Houlihan Lawrence in Darien. SOLD

A generous sized entry that allows for bold wall paper, such as the tried and true by China Seas.

Everything feels so fresh in this house. I dont think you will notice winter in this house.

Everything feels so fresh and familiar in this house. You will feel right at home here.

This room draws you in like a moth to the flame. It feel so inviting and acts as a great "eat in" off the kitchen.

This room draws you in like a moth to the flame. It is nice to have a dining room that is not only comfortable at night.

Really like the Juliska touch

Really like the Juliska touch.  Those hanging lights always look great.

Love the master wall to wall carpet. It is a really beautiful XXX. It feels very peaceful in here.

The master wall to wall carpet creates a cool and serene spot, as well as a bit of cozy, for the end of the day.

To give you an idea of the lay out; first floor.

Global Style in Tokeneke

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

12 Runkenhage Road.  What a beauty! We love this house and it’s new to the market!  The property sits beautifully on the Cove down at the bottom of Tokeneke, nestled among some of the Association’s most beautiful houses.  And the dock? Well, you can have your motor boat waiting for you when ever you feel the need to buz through Scott’s Cove and out on to Long Island Sound.  Asking $3,250,000 through Kelly Associates.

Its not Lake Cuomo, but you can bring your own "global style" to the table here.

Its not Lake Como, but you can bring your own “global style” to the table here. Couldn’t help but “borrow” the current edition of House Beautiful‘s fine choice of words for this one.

Imagine the court yard you could have here with beautiful planters and creeping vines!

Imagine the court yard you could develop here with beautiful planters and creeping vines! Note the copper gutters, and consider what you could have made at Urban Electric. Devine!

The courtyard.  Private and perfect for entertaining on summer nights.

A view from the second bedroom.

A view from the second bedroom. The house is in great shape.  The exterior shows really well.  A garden down below and along the water would be fabulous.

It goes without saying that a renovation is expected here, but the views!  They are like this from every room!

First floor.  Windows on all sides looking out.  The courtyard is perfect for dining al fresco.

Its so important to understand the floorplan and what you might do to it.

Each bedroom has en suite baths and exceptional views.

The Waterfront…which one would you like?

Thursday, September 20, 2012

86 Delafield Island – 4 bedrooms/3 1/2 baths, asking $5,950,000,  This house really deserves its own “homage”, but since we are talking about The Waterfront, we have to start with this superior new Kelly Associates listing. Really one of the more splendid settings in town, and a house to go with it. The bones, the bones, the bones.  If there is a house on the market with views and great bones, this is the house. It will undoubtedly be renovated by its new owners, but this is one of those houses that brings childhood at Grandmother’s to the front of your mind. Houses like this don’t come on all the time. It is absolutely fabulous.  And ,by the way, it has a terrific pool and jacuzzi with views that might leave you floating for hours!

Love this front door. Welcome Home!

Windows on three sides of the living room make the landscape the focus point.

So old school. So lovely.

Not a bad place to find yourself relaxing.

No, this is not a painting. This is what you look at from almost every room.

22 Searles– Built in 1908!  No wonder I love this house.  I have always said “give me a house built in the early 1900’s and my heart will go pitter-patter”.  High ceilings, thick plaster walls, wide doorways, all pieces to the puzzle of a house with substance.  It shows really well – the interior feels heavily influenced by Michael Smith, it’s all pulled together beautifully.  This impressive Mediterranean house on Scott’s Cove has 5 bedrooms/5 1/2 baths, a pool, a guest house. Asking $4,995,000 through Kelly Associates.

Beautiful terraces and a pool are in place for fabulous outdoor entertaining.

The views are not to shabby either.

The living room, and entertaining spaces, effectively ride the line of gracious formality and easy living.

Love the stone blue kitchen.  Functionality is part of the appeal here. A cook’s kitchen.

Great sitting room off the kitchen wrapped in William Morris wallpaper. LOVE!

The Guest House. I could live here!

Your guests will never leave!

112  Pear Tree Point – 5 bedrooms/4 !/2 baths, a total of 7462 square feet, asking $7,350,000 through Kelly Associates (no longer available).  We talked about this house when it first came on the market.  At the time we thought it was important to point out the special features outside and ALL THE STONE WORK!  But, now it is important to point out that this is a beautifully thought out house built to perfection. Oh, and don’t worry about your golf game, because you will be working on it in the game room where you will have your very own simulated course!  Designed by Mac Patterson, this is one of the more sophisticated houses on the market.  The details – down to the crushed shell drive way – will not be missed by the MOST DISERNING buyer.

112 Pear Tree Point.

Set back off the road enough to ensure total privacy at the house.

Details in the house are fantastic. Note that all the custom Elizabeth Eakins rugs are nailed down and will be sold with the house.

The pool, the pool/guest house, the outdoor kitchen all add up to a fabulous place to host summertime dinner parties.

Living room over looking Noroton Harbor. Very comfortable and unpretentious.

Comfort and luxury in every room.

Yes, that is a golf simulater. You may never play a perfect game, but it won’t be because you don’t have the chance to practice!

I love that the kitchen is not a lot of useless space. The cooking space has everything you need, and lots of pantry storage. And of course a civilized sitting area that has a gorgeous fireplace.

25-27 Brush Island – Think about how nice it is to be out of the fray, then think how nice it would be to experience that in Darien!  That is exactly what life on Brush Island will offer you and this property has several options to consider.  1. Buy the whole thing and work with the two existing houses and the lots to make one fabulous compound. 2. Buy the older house on its lot and either renovate or rebuild.  3.  Do the same with the newer house and its lot. 3. Potential for a subdivided third lot.  There are many possibilities here to consider. Deeded access to Long Island Sound, private beach front and tennis court. Total acreage is 3.27.   What ever it is, you end up with a real gem of a property and a lovely, low key location with beach and privacy. 6 bedrooms/ 3 1/2 baths, asking $7,350,000 through Kelly Associates.

Outlining this specatular opportunity.

The houses are totally different. Something for everyone.

Only 35 miles from mid-town Manhattan. Fabulous!
