DARIEN, Conn. -- ​Luxury homebuyers seeking a condominium alternative and easy water access will treasure a recent listing at 59 Five Mile River Road in ​Darien.

The four-bedroom, four ​and a half ​bathroom ​Shingle-Style ​Colonial is listed by Rachel Walsh of William Pitt Sotheby’s ​International Realty, New Canaan, ​for $2,995,000. Click here for the website listing.

“It’s such a unique property,’’ Walsh said. “It’s for ​the​ ​specialty ​​buyer ​who wants a very low maintenance home, the Darien​ community and commute​, gorgeous water views and the ability to walk out the door ​to ​do water activities​ from your own dock​.”

Walsh said during a recent showing of the home, a paddle boarder, sailboater and kayaker cruised past the home within a 15-minute window. “Then I looked up and ​saw ​two swans ​glide ​by,’’ she said. “It’s really picturesque​ and calming​.”

Walsh said the home also shows like new. Built in 200​5​ by a ​local ​builder, Kaali-Nagy​ Construction​, the home has been gently lived in by the current residents, ​who are ​the original ​owners.

“When they purchased the home, they wanted something unique and did not want a standard ​C​olonial on a standard street,’’ Walsh said. “This fit the bill ​for ​them. One of the most ​special ​things is that you can see water from every room in the house​, yet the house sits high."

Walsh said visitors to the home ​particularly enjoy the ​extra wide ​front-to-back ​hallway upon entering the home, which allows a view of the ​Five Mile R​iver from the front door. The home features a stunning ​all white ​custom kitchen with Carrara marble counters, ​a ​Great ​R​oom with fireplace, custom built-ins and moldings, a first floor bedroom/library​ and a​ master bedroom with fireplace and luxury ​marble ​bath.

There is a 2-car garage, 2,822 square feet of living space ​ and an ​​exterior ​balcony and ​terrace​ with a private dock.

“It ​is ​a perfect downsizer ho​me, for a couple with grown children, or even a weekend or ‘snowbird’ house,’’ Walsh said. “It has ​a small lot​, which equates with very low maintenance. Yet, you’re completely private. It also has relatively low taxes compared to other ​waterfront towns."

Walsh said natural sunlight fills the home from dawn until dusk. Visitors to the home find it hard to believe, she said, that it is 10 year​s​ old.

“It’s like a brand new house and ​it ​has been perfectly maintained,’’ Walsh said. “It’s a substantially built house ​with ​a timeless ​style​.”
