The 2nd PICK for Christmas


66 Bridle Trail is simply wonderful. We have blogged about this house before and we still love it.  Tucked away in northern Darien, it is so private and the property is so pretty. You won’t get to keep what they have, but oh… the possibilities are endless for beautiful decorating when the bones are good.  It remains one of the very few with both a pool and a tennis court which makes it feel like a back country estate. (But is not pretentious!) 5 bedrooms/4 1/2 baths, 5000+ square feet.  2.06 acres. Asking $3,495,000.  Listed by Cathy Lawton at Kelly Associates. 

NOTHING like a large square entry. Love it when it feels like its own room.

All beautiful archways lead to more beautiful rooms.

Magnificent windows.

A real kitchen. for all to gather in.

The way out… to your very own compound.

This where everyone will want to hang. And its gorgeous.

Note the little projector. Everyone needs their own screening room.

The study.

The landing. Yes, it is really nice to have one.

Here it goes. The gardens and grounds are fabulous.

more to see…

more to see…more to love.

Tennis. Wimbledon style!

Where you will host with Long Island Iced teas.

The (tennis) judge’s view.

Even the gardening shed is good.


Yes, I know there are a lot of pictures but this is one of those houses you can’t get enough of.  These would be a fabulous set of keys for under the tree!
