A Beautifully-Restored Modern in Cozy Village Creek Hits the Market

Norwalk modern glass home is listed for $1,890,000 with Liz Beinfeld of Houlihan Lawrence in Darien

In nearby Norwalk is a cozy community called Village Creek, located on a peninsula that juts into Long Island Sound. While the circa-1949 planned community is just a 10-minute drive to the South Norwalk train station (and its 60-minute ride into Grand Central), Village Creek feels like—perhaps unsurprisingly, given its name—a waterfront village. And high and dry on a bluffy point is a beautifully restored and expanded modern, just listed for $1,890,000, that enjoys the best of all worlds: It’s on a perch that’s safe from flooding, but it also offers 200 feet of waterfront and a short walk to the village association’s beach, marina, dock and tennis facilities. The best room in the house is the lofty, open-plan living area with a massive stone hearth and an expansive deck looking over the water. Vying for the best room is the 800-square-foot master suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and luxe dressing area and bath. In all, there are five bedrooms, including a one-bedroom in-law/au-pair suite with a separate entrance. Liz Beinfeld of Houlihan Lawrence has the listing.
