About the Home

A truly special offering! This beautifully maintained Antique Farmhouse has gleaming wide-plank floorboards, rough-hewn beams, and many updates. The library/den/office has a separate entrance convenient for visitors. Besides the main house, you will find a barn and a 1 bedroom/ 1 bath cottage with kitchen (approx. 800 sq. ft. not included in square footage or bedroom/bath count). The barn, which features a loft, could become an awesome studio, workshop, or party barn. It already has electricity and lots of storage. The utterly charming cottage makes for a terrific guest house or office. A very private setting, it has plentiful off-street parking including a circular driveway and a two-car garage. On New Canaan/Darien border, easy commute to train lines including Darien main line. Approximately one mile to South School, Saxe Middle, and New Canaan High School, and Waveny Park and Pool. Two miles to downtown shops and restaurants.
