Stunning sunrise views over Long Island Sound are on offer from the house, pool, gardens and dock at this Darien property.

The estate's formal gardens feature maze-like sculptured hedges, pretty paths, and, this time of year, flowering ornamental trees.

The architect-designed building is sited along a river and just steps from a dock where boat slips are available.

The 4.44-acre spread is stuffed like a stocking with all the best toys.
