hot property Newly renovated home in Darien is perfect for entertaining

September 17, 2018

Substantially renovated in early 2018, this wondrous colonial in the heart of Darien is open and inviting and perfect for entertaining.

With triple-tiered decks perfect for family and friends, the home is unique and special because of its open and inviting floor plan, according to co-listing agent Elemerina Brooks of Halstead Connecticut.

“My favorite part of this house is clearly the kitchen/family area,” Brooks said. “It’s designed for entertaining.”

The 3,360-square-foot house boasts 10 rooms and has a lower level, a main level and a second level.

The finished walk out lower level of this 21-year-old home has a great big bonus room that can be used as a play or exercise room.

“It can even be a separate office because it has its own entrance,” said Brooks, who co-lists the home along with Ashley O’Neil.

The lower level also features storage rooms, a powder room and another bedroom/au pair room. The lower level is 1,120 square feet.

Enter the main level and on the left is a large chic dining area with large windows, a very nouveau chandelier, hardwood floor and some wainscoting, Brooks said. The next room is a large eat-in and completely renovated gourmet kitchen, Brook said. The one-of-a-kind kitchen offers a large center island, custom cabinetry and white Caesar stone countertops. The appliances are stainless steel and four people can sit at the island while another four people can sit comfortably at a table.

“There are also sliding French doors to a huge deck,” Brooks said. “There is a great big wet bar complete with wine coolers next to the kitchen.”

A mudroom with built-in cubbies and a newly renovated powder room is located on the other side of the kitchen. The spacious family room has a gas-burning fireplace flanked by built-ins with decorative shelving.

Rounding out the first level is a casual but very bright living room. The room boasts an entertainment area for a large screen television. It also has newly-stained and finished hardwood floors and wainscotting.

The second level, Brooks said, has a newly added master suite. The master has sliding French doors to a private balcony overlooking the private backyard and scenic stream. The room also has a huge-walk in closet and exquisite new white marble bathroom with a soaking tub and an oversized glass-enclosed shower. It also has double vanities with current rectangular sinks.

There are four other bedrooms on the second level. One bedroom, Brooks said, is a large en-suite with a newly renovated bathroom. The bathroom has white cabinetry topped with a white marble countertop with two sinks. The other three bedrooms all have ample closet space and a renovated main bath or hall bath. There is also a brand-new laundry room with a top-of-the-line washer and dryer.

The home, Brooks said, is newly professionally landscaped with many specimen plantings. There is also a new sodded lawn and charming stone walls, she said. There is a one-car garage with extra parking on the side of the garage.
