Darien property offers rich history and legend


William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has listed the renovated and updated historic John Waterbury House in the heart of Darien.

The historic home is set on more than two acres overlooking a land trust meadow with mature trees and manicured lawns. It was once the dwelling of Lt. John Waterbury, who fought in the American Revolution. Since then, the cottage and barn have been renovated preserving the original fireplaces, beams and floorboards. The courtyard that embraces the original structure has also been preserved, keeping intact the surrounding stonework.
The main residence accentuates the character of the vintage one, and provides all current amenities for today’s luxury living. High ceilings and large windows offering natural light enhance the beauty of the old residence and accentuate the sweeping vistas of the landscaped grounds and terraces.

“This home is the perfect combination of old and new,” said listing agent Linda Malpass. “A blend of premier new construction and a vintage 1700’s carriage house create a country estate offering sophistication, character, distinction and style.”

Completely renovated and updated in 2013, the home offers a total of 7,600 square feet of living space, 5,000 of which are brand new. The home has a total of 15 rooms including an eat-in kitchen, family and living room with fireplaces and seven bedrooms as well as five full and two half baths. Additional amenities include central cooling, a full finished basement, beach rights and an attached three-car garage.
