Sitting on the edge of a 50-acre nature preserve just outside the village of Rowayton, this four-bedroom Colonial on Little Brook Road North offers a private slice of Darien real estate.

Tucked away on a triple cul-de-sac in a community known for impromptu cocktail parties and summer block parties, the home is nestled on a close-knit corner of Darien.

The property sits on the edge of Selleck Woods and Dunlap Woods, which combined make up that 50-acre nature preserve offering an extensive two-mile trail system, marshes and streams throughout the park.

Inside, the home features a center hall layout with a small foyer flanked by two shared family spaces.

The formal living room features a recessed wood burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves on either side, perfect for displaying photographs and collections.

Opposite the living room is a family room featuring crown molding, recessed lighting and four large windows offering plenty of natural light.

The formal dining room features a large bay window overlooking the wooded property.

An eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counters and a mosaic backsplash with access to a large deck that sits on a professionally landscaped acre of property.

Just off the kitchen is a mudroom and laundry area with plenty of cabinet space.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features two walk-in closets, one used by previous owners as a second office space. The spacious master en suite features a dual vanity, sunken tub and frameless glass step-in shower.

The second floor houses three additional guest bedrooms sharing a full hall bath.

"Backing up to Selleck Woods this house with optimal space offers privacy yet is a true cul-de-sac neighborhood and is close to town and Tokeneke School. You get the best of both worlds," said Lynne Ferguson Somerville, a Realtor with Halstead Property.
