In 1996 the New York Times described life in Darien, Connecticut’s Tokeneke neighborhood as being on permanent vacation. Twenty years later and the neighborhood still offers beauty and peaceful life on Long Island Sound.
This home was built in 1900 on Contentment Island, which is full of Tudor and Norman mansions, Spanish villas, and rambling seaside cottages. The area’s settlement dates back to the 1640s and the area takes its name from a Native American chief.
This waterfront Tudor home located in the private Tokeneke Association is on 3.2 wooded acres at the end of Contentment Island with extra lot potential. A dock and tennis court make this a perfect setting to enjoy outdoor activities on Scott’s Cove and L.I. Sound.
Built in 1900, the architectural integrity remains while updates have embraced its waterfront location and surrounding trees. Large picture windows, French doors, a seaside terrace and covered porch bring the outside in to this gracious home.
This home is listed for $11.2 million with Halstead Property and is showcased on Luxury Portfolio.
