A Modern take on pre-war grandeur

This extraordinary waterfront compound on Pear Tree Point Road in Darien is a Modernist interpretation of a grand estate, with expansive views of the Long Island Sound inside and out. 

Pre-war splendor and an architecturally significant, light-filled addition and renovation to this 1915 home create a sophisticated main residence of approximately 13,047 square feet, complete with impressively scaled entertainment rooms and eight bedrooms. (There are 20 rooms in all, including seven full and three partial bathrooms.) Nearly every room uniquely frames panoramic water views.

The approach to the approximately 4.2-acre, $18.9 million site is enhanced by manicured hedges and magnificent mature trees. Open lawns and gardens lead to a private dock as well as a swimming pool and terrace overlooking the water’s edge. A private tennis court and numerous outdoor entertainment areas help ensure an incomparable living experience close
to Manhattan.
