A European-style mansion, listed for $5.8 million in Darien, ensures that a buyer won’t need to buy a plane ticket to view the architectural masterpieces displayed overseas. Just over 9,500-square-feet, this 5-bedroom, 5-and-a-half-bathroom gem exudes the elegance displayed throughout various countries abroad.The residence rivals that of the European buildings it aims to emulate. According to Mansion Global
, composer Frank LaForge built the estate in the 1930’s and incorporated his love for music into the design. An original pipe organ lies in the living room and functions much like it did in the past. Buyers will delight in making music to intertwine with the tunes of past that are embedded in the house’s history.The magnificent grounds give way to sprawling green hills leading down to Gorham’s Pond. The house overlooks the peaceful water, providing a sense of calm that wash’s over the property. 5 acres of land provide the house with a substantial foundation in which future owners can build further upon or settle comfortably on.The elegant listing
