Crush-Worthy Coastal Home in Darien Lists for $11.7M
Sited on a peninsula in Darien, with sunrise views over the Fish Islands, Greens Ledge Lighthouse and Long Island Sound. The circa-1850 property, called Oyster Cove Farm, was built for a sea captain as a classic, white-clapboard Colonial, now measuring 7,562 square feet. The three-acre exteriors feature a gracious front motor court, formal gardens, a pool and pool terrace, and lawns that roll down to a private dock.
And while there’s a lot to love throughout the renovated interiors, we’re especially smitten with the entry hall with its gracious staircase and fireplace and the two-story library with a spiral staircase and another fireplace. The master suite is also, well, sweet, with its own fireplace and sleeping porch. It lists for $11,750,000 with Merrill Till of Houlihan Lawrence.
