Wake up to views of the Five Mile River and sip your coffee on the expansive deck of this waterfront home in the prestigious Tokeneke Association on Butler’s Island. A classic New England home, this house was built in 1908 and renovated in 2012 by a renowned local builder.
Further renovations in 2020 have updated all five bathrooms; the office with built-in bar, refrigerator and ice maker, and the laundry room; plus expanded the deck to 60 feet and added an outdoor built-in stone barbecue with refrigerator.
“There is a wonderful open plan kitchen/family room, which is at the heart of the home,” says Amy Warnock, real estate agent with Brown Harris Stevens CT in Darien, CT. That gourmet kitchen with large island and seating as well as vaulted family room with fireplace provide lots of room for the family to gather.
The second floor features a master suite with lots of natural light, plus three other bedrooms. On the third floor has a bonus area, a full bathroom and two additional rooms, all with lots of flexibility to function as a guest room, office or recreation room. All four floors are connected by an elevator.
“This fully updated home checks off all the boxes in today’s world with its fantastic layout, home office, playroom, workout space, privacy, dock and spectacular sunsets,” says Warnock.
Outside, new landscaping, plus an upgraded irrigation system and outdoor lighting, all completed this year, make outdoor living serene on 1.22 acres. Your own private dock provides easy access for boaters to explore the Five Mile River, Rowayton and Long Island Sound.
Adds Warnock: “The ideal buyer would be someone who appreciates a private and exclusive location with great access to the water and close proximity to the Tokeneke Club and Long Island Sound.”
