Darien, Connecticut, Estate of the Day
Today's Colonial style home in Darien, Connecticut is worth check out as much for its traditionally charming brick exterior as it is for its cool gray modern interior. Outside it's just as classic as can be right down to the pineapple molding above the columned door. Inside the home has been renovated with an urban elegance that reminds me of a layout that one might have seen in Metropolitan Home magazine. The sophisticated palette of dark wood contrasted with the soft dove gray furnishings and simple art creates an uncluttered and calm space. The six-bedroom home has views of Scott's Cove on Long Island Sound and comes with a beach and small dock. There is room enough for a new owner to install a pool. It is listed at $7.25 million.
