DARIEN — With its panoramic open water views, private association dock and small boat launch, this seaside retreat in Seagate offers a prime slice of waterfront Darien real estate.
Built in 1991, this unique waterfront gem borders the Holly Pond, a coastal inlet of Long Island Sound harboring unique waterfowl, offering a haven for young sailors learning on their sunfish sailboats and catamarans and in the winter, providing an outdoor skating rink.
With it’s South-facing orientation looking out on Holly Pond and Long Island Sound beyond, this coastal Colonial offers spectacular views year round from nearly every room in the home.
Seaside perennial gardens that ribbon the property are lush in hydrangeas, roses and salvia and a large flat grassy area stretches all the way to water’s edge offering a lovely spot for a pair of Adirondack chairs.
Inside, the five-bedroom Nantucket-style Colonial offers an easy floor plan with free flowing spaces that transition seamlessly from room to room.
A formal dining room features lower paneling, clean crown molding and a wood burning fireplace with a white-washed brick surround.
