No, no, I’m not moving, but every once in a while, a Darien, New Canaan, or Westport property reminds me there are other places to live besides Greenwich, particularly if you don’t have to work in NYC.

8 Cross Road, in Darien’s “Tokeneke” section is just such a property; a classic 1920’s colonial, close to LI Sound, loads of lawns, and separate guest quarters over the 4-car garage.   Do the yellow Formica kitchen counters and 1950’s bathrooms cry out for updating? Sure, although I happen to like everything just  the way it is. It came on September, 2012 at $4.6M, reduced down to $3.995M, now has executed contracts.

Besides its 3.3 acres, you also could have picked up an extra 1.278 acres for $995,000, but it appears that the buyer declined. Too bad.
