A Dashing Circa-1900 Manor in Darien, Connecticut Seeks Almost $4.6M

On Searles road in the Tokeneke neighborhood of Darien, a gracious home dating back to 1900 is on the market asking $4.575 million. Spanning 7,613-square-feet, it holds plenty of space and history in a most picturesque setting.

As ready for entertaining as working from home or having spa-like experiences, this Darien home is well-rounded to suit many buyers. Starting at the top, there’s a well-appointed office with teak flooring, a porthole-style window, and a built-in bar. On the second floor, there’s another office, as well as four bedrooms, including the main suite, which offers a pretty bathroom—literally, a rounded room housing only an oversized, freestanding tub, positioned next to a fireplace and surrounded by paneled walls painted Wedgwood blue.

On the main floor, the renovated kitchen has double islands, and there’s also a formal dining room with a gold-leaf ceiling. Down below, there’s a game room with pool and Ping Pong tables, as well as a wine cellar.

Exploring the generous rooms, the home’s good bones and elegant aura is clear to see. Janine Tienken with Houlihan Lawrence holds the listing, formerly priced at $4.65 million.
