Property Description

Capturing the breezes off the sound, ''The Garden Gate'' is one of few intact and purposefully convenient southern Darien estates. Set on a rolling lawn overlooking 1.6 acres of gorgeous flat land with an abundance of side streets and neighbors accessed by footpaths. This Hobi Award winning home is architecturally distinctive beyond compare! The mix of luxury and casual lifestyle make this house a joy to live in and a pleasure to visit. Completely redone, from the basement to the turret with modern amenities like radiant heat and all new custom windows and roofs, to name just a few. The character is seamlessly intact. ''It is almost hard to call it an antique, save, its amazing flair, history and rock solid structure." High ceilings and thick moldings surround dramatic and intriguing open spaces. The soaring custom windows and doors bring the outside views and vistas in. From the grand porches and large private balcony overlooking the pool and grounds to the simple tree swing, this house is a place you will want to call home!
