Beautiful Darien Cotswold Manor
Exquisitely set on a fairy-tale property, this inviting 1923 stone and stucco Cotswold Manor home with classic clay roof pairs old world charm and updated amenities. Stunningly set in the landscaped hillside of this two-acre property bordered by Stony Brook and with views of Gorham’s Pond, the house extends to the outdoors with a huge south-facing slate terrace and attached screen porch.
Guests are welcomed into a spectacular two-story post and beam living room with stone and brick hearth fireplace, leaded windows and exposed dark wood beams. An updated kitchen with well equipped mudroom, bright dining room that opens to a private stone courtyard and large family room, both with field stone hearth fireplaces round out the gracious living areas. The craftsmanship throughout the home is museum quality; all stone and plaster construction. Surprise doorways and windows throughout lend a magical feel. Irreplacable architectural detail and an artists eye for light and harmony between interior and exterior will appeal to lovers of special homes.
Upstairs, the private and spacious master bedroom with updated bath and its own staircase overlooks the private backyard. There are three additional bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths. An unfinished two-room suite with bath and private entrance would be a great home office or guest suite.
