House of the Day: Set Anchor in Connecticut for $13.2 Million


Springtime is Connecticut waterfront time! Flowers are blooming, the smell of mown grass perfumes the air, and you know it's finally safe to store the snow boots in the basement. This magnificent French Country stone house sits on the Five Mile River in Darien, and is listed at $13.2 million.

There are fireplaces in the sunken family room, the gourmet kitchen and its living/dining room. All the public rooms have access to the flagstone veranda, surrounded by iris, heather and peony gardens. Up an elegant staircase are four bedroom suites, including a large master with a fireplace, dressing room, marble bathroom and two balconies.
