On The Market A Newly Built Colonial In Darien




DARIEN — Tucked at the end of the private Waterbury Lane cul-de-sac, this new construction Nantucket-style Colonial offers 4,500 square feet of easy living space for the 2016 buyer.

Sited on three acres of property, the home features a large flat grassy area for play and a wrap-around flagstone terrace with an outdoor fireplace for endless outdoor entertaining.

With its cedar shingle siding and Azek exterior trim, the home is designed to be virtually maintenance free while keeping plenty of coastal New England charm.

Inside, a two story front-to-back foyer lined with wainscot paneling features white oak herringbone floors stained in a chic walnut tone.

Unfolding in a transitional center hall design, a formal dining room trimmed with classic lower paneling, chair and crown moldings and a deep box-style bay window sits on left of entry.

A sophisticated butler’s pantry features sleek gray cabinetry with polished nickel hardware, a hammered nickel vessel sink and Subzero wine refrigerator.

At right, a formal living room features complimenting moldings, another deep bay windows and a wood-burning fireplace.
