DARIEN — A newly built Colonial on Park Place features a transitional-style floor plan with plenty of curb appeal for a 2016 lifestyle.

Designed by Condon Brown Builders, owned by two Darien natives, the custom 4,400-square-foot Colonial offers four finished levels of living space with clean, contemporary finishes.

A covered vertical grain fir front porch offers a lovely space for enjoying coffee or tea during the warmer months.

Inside, the home features custom interior finishes, 9-foot ceilings, and hardwood floors throughout.

The front-to-back foyer leads to sunny formal living room featuring four large windows and a see-through gas fireplace with a honed Siberian white vein cut marble surround serving as a partition between the living room and formal dining room.

A state-of-the-art kitchen features timeless materials like its honed Carrara marble counters and subway tile backsplash with 2016 amenities like a six-burner Thermador range, Marvel wine refrigerator and stainless Thermador refrigerator.

The kitchen is wrapped in inset white cabinetry with glass uppers and soft-close drawers.

A center island with two glass pendant lights offers everyday seating for two or three and a sun-filled breakfast nook features a wall of six eight-over-one windows overlooking the back of the property.

With an easy, open floor plan, the kitchen is open to a spacious family room with a gas fireplace flanked by two sets of built-ins against an accent wall paneled in floor-to-ceiling shiplap.

The family room includes sliding glass doors that lead to the deck, terrace and private backyard.

Just off the family room is a well-equipped mudroom, also paneled floor to ceiling in shiplap. It has built-in cubbies and a bench for organizing everyday items, and heated faux wood tiled flooring.

The second floor has two guest bedrooms sharing a full hall bath with a dual Carrara marble vanity, Carrara marble hex-tiled flooring and a subway-tiled shower.

The master suite features a walk-in closet outfitted with custom organizational storage and a luxurious en suite bath featuring a vaulted ceiling with a stunning chandelier.

The master bath includes a dual Carrara marble vanity, an oversized frameless glass step-in shower with contemporary vertical-laid tiling and a spa-worthy Victoria Albert soaking tub.

The second floor also has a bonus room that could easily lend itself as an additional family room, playroom or recreational room, with its own full bath.

A third level has two additional guest bedrooms sharing a full bath with a dual marble vanity and step-in shower.

The lower level of the home offers an additional 860 square feet of finished space featuring a powder room, wine cellar and large finished space lending itself as a great playroom with walkout access to the backyard. The lower level also includes two large storage rooms.
