Magical, very private retreat on Fairfield Country’s Gold Coast, Darien. This seaside property, once the gatehouse to “The Tides” estate, with its stunning views of Scott's Cove and the Long Island Sound is tucked away in a protected Delafield Island Association setting. Enter this sophisticated and meticulously renovated Tuscan-style estate through mahogany gates that lead into a charming open-air courtyard. Inside reveals open light-filled spaces with a series of full-length windows facing south. The gracious stone terrace overlooks a rolling sweep of lawn, gardens and 181 feet of direct waterfront. The property features elegant materials with a chic European style: French limestone, custom ironwork, windows, tile, a greenhouse. There is nothing ordinary about this property as knowledgeable owners sourced only the very best during a total renovation. Gracious first floor master bedroom suite has a wall of windows and extraordinary views; second floor master suite with large water-facing deck an alternative option.
