Wake up to gorgeous sunrises overlooking Goodwives River and the Long Island Sound or have breakfast on the patio overlooking the pool on weekends. Gather with friends and family in the charming chef’s kitchen with large fieldstone fireplace (one of four) and breakfast room. 

“This home captures the uniqueness of a 1775 build with today’s renovations and updates—and almost every room in the house has water views!” says Jenny Allen, co-realtor with Keiley Fuller at Compass’s Greenwich, CT, office, of this traditional home in a quiet neighborhood steps away from Pear Tree Point Beach in Darien, CT. “The entire home is well thought out, spacious and filled with stunning reclaimed wood beamed ceilings and skylights.”

Past meets present

The kitchen is the last remaining architectural element preserved from the original house built in 1775. The front of the home was added in the 1800s by a sea captain and original beams and the front chimneys remain from that renovation. Most recently, a renovation and expansion in 2004-05 by Bo Malpass brought the house up to date with all the latest tech and design features the modern homeowner is looking for.

Gathering place

The farmhouse kitchen boasts an antique wood-clad center island with seating for four, statuary marble countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, grand fireplace, adjacent wine storage and butler’s pantry with exposed stone wall. A sunken family room connects through two sets of French doors to a sunroom and the exterior patio and pool, which are surrounded by 1.37 acres of manicured lawns and shrubs. “There is a stunning sun-filled atrium that leads out to a private outdoor cocktail corner overlooking the water,” says Allen.

The home has an attached two-car garage, but an additional detached garage/barn has indoor parking spaces for at least five cars. The second floor provides lots of flexibility with a gym on the first floor and, on the second floor, studio/office space and seventh bedroom, which has an en suite bath. 

With seven bedrooms, an in-home office, a detached five-car garage with second-floor suite, a large pool and level, fenced yard, the home is ideal for many different types of buyers, from a large family to empty nesters looking for a weekend escape to host family. 

“It is such a peaceful and beautiful home filled with character and charm,” says Allen. “Every room has a story. People will walk in the door and fall in love.”
