A 19th-Century Greek Revival in Darien Just Listed for $1.65M
As the Fairfield County real estate boom continues, listings of all styles and from all eras are popping up on the market all the time. And swiftly being scooped up. While perhaps no home stands more quintessentially Connecticut than the Colonial, a Greek Revival that just went up for sale in Darien makes a strong effort. Constructed in 1844, the charming abode’s first resident was town selectman Ira Scofield. It makes sense as the historic haven sits centrally just off Post Road. With such a location, it’s borne witness to over a century of the town’s comings and goings and now asks $1.649 million.
The residence, set behind a low stone wall, exudes quaint elegance with its clean white siding and glossy red front door. The interiors hold 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms and span a total of 5,109 square feet, embracing the charming tone set outside. High ceilings crown each room, reigning over period details like wide plank pine floors and windows trimmed with thick moldings.
Just across the street lies the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and School, a parish formally founded in this very home’s dining room in 1855. Ornate fireplaces warm that space as well as the family and living rooms.
