Extraordinary 63-Acre Waterfront Estate - Great Island

Great Island is a secluded sphere of incredible beauty and solitude, only minutes from Greenwich in Darien bordered by 14 acres of conservation land surrounded by Long Island with views across the Sound to the Long Island shore and connected to the mainland by a wide land bridge

The amazing half-mile gated driveway to the main house leads through open lawns with an allee of trees bordered by meadows. There are views of a picturesque lighthouse in the distance and a hidden cove for a secluded anchorage and a secure place for boats, even in a major storm. This magnificent and unique property was acquired in the late 1800’s as a compound for the family of the current owners.The stone main house was built to an impressive standard with a tile roof and rests on a stunning site with superb water views in all directions. The house is impressive in scale, and every room draws in water views without a hint that any other house is nearby, We are told that two hundred stone masons built the main structures over some years, including the guest house, the amazing stable with a Guastavino tile ceiling like the one in the concourses at Grand Central Station, a caretakers house, a gatehouse, several smaller houses, a yacht basin with docks, plus there are several beach cottages and a charming 1800’s antique house. Wandering along the totally quiet and private lanes or walking in the open lawns, it is apparent that this is unlike any other estate. The bird life, including hummingbirds, is peaceful, and the majestic trees give it a flavor that would take a century to replicate - just 55 minutes from Manhattan, with no other properties this size so close to New York City on Long Island Sound. This is a unique opportunity to create a family compound for generations to come - truly a magic kingdom.

Extraordinary 63 acre waterfront island estate with seemingly endless east, south, and west views of Long Island Sound to the Long Island shore adjoining 14 acres of conservation property with a wide landbridge to the gated mainland driveway leading to Long Neck Point in Darien only minutes from Greenwich. Incredible beauty and solitude; views of lighthouse as well as secluded anchorage in hidden cove. Romantic Italian stone manor house, plus substantial stable and equestrian facilities including a polo field and an indoor ring plus additional dwellings; beach house, and boathouse.
