A Circa-1902 Darien Tudor with Its Own Private Beach Wants $7.5M
The Darien coastline is alternatively rocky and beachy, with marshlands and estuaries thrown in as well. Its most exclusive enclave is called Tokeneke, with its own century-old waterfront club, offering a beach, Har-Tru tennis courts, and a boathouse. And just down the road, a classic Tokeneke Tudor on 1.25 acres is on the market with the new price of $7.995 million. Last summer, it was asking $8.495 million.
Built in 1902, the 7,800-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom residence is backed by pristine lawns that stretch to a private sandy beach, with views to both Long Island Sound and Five Mile River. The Darien home has manicured gardens and elegant outdoor terraces, giving it plenty of breezy glamour.
