Driving Directions

European elegance and old World craftsmanship created one of Darien's most sophisticated and treasured estates. This stunning Mediterranean Villa, built by composer Frank LaForge in 1936, complete with the original pipe organ to set the tone for the surprises that await. Set on a secluded 5 acre hillside on the shore of Gorham's Pond, this storybook dream is brought to life by magnificent gardens and sweeping lawns overlooking the tranquility of the swans swimming across the water. Masterfully renovated to perfection over the years, seamlessly blending original details with modern elements for today's lifestyle. The recent kitchen wing addition contains the most modern appliances, a cozy fireplace, and vaulted ceiling with reclaimed beams, yet features an extraordinary AGA stove as its centerpiece. The covered veranda, with automated screens and vaulted ceiling is open on three sides with water and garden views. The custom-built Iron rotisserie grill makes this a favorite spot to entertain in any season. 5 bedrooms, 5 ½ bathrooms, wrought iron balconies, stone terraces, 11 fireplaces and a glass enclosed central courtyard atrium make this majestic home truly captivating. We are playing your song; so don't refrain from calling for your private tour of this architectural gem just 1 hour from New York City.
