While New York has its perks, between hip restaurants, burgeoning trends in fashion and art, and being close to work for many, the constant bustle of the city is keen on wearing out even the sharpest minds. Getting away from it all at a moments notice can be a great thing, whether that getaway happens at the 5:00pm closing bell or on the weekends can vary for anyone, but where to retreat to is something we know a little about. Darien, Connecticut, a small town not too far from the city, is full of what are basically castles, and ripe to swipe up out of the market. On North Road in Darien, Number 8 is new to the market for just under 14 million, and has all the makings of a bona fide castle to get out of the midtown Madness and escape to.
This five bedroom, six bathroom estate spans 8700 square feet, and sits on 1.05 acres. The home also features a waterfront view with a boat moor and beautiful green yard. Nothing has ever looked so relaxing and refreshing after spending all your day at work staring at the concrete jungle of New York. In addition to the added benefits of being back in nature and away from the city, the home itself also features an office, beautiful rustic kitchen, expansive bedroom with beautiful windows looking out onto the water as one wakes up, a home cinema, game room, and in ground pool. The listing is represented by Houlihan Lawrence’s Kristin Nemec, though with a slew of features inside and out it won’t b on the market for long.
