My Notes

The 1765 Silvanus Selleck House has twice been featured on Darien House Tours. One of the four Selleck family homes that created Old Farm Road as the family farmed Tokeneke. This spacious, open, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath 4,519 sq ft home defines Connecticut CHARM. 4-5 fireplaces include the walk-in cooking hearth with beehive oven. Updated and intelligently expanded in three directions over the years, today it is a wonderful family home on absolutely gorgeous, expansive property with a perfectly situated pool. Bordered by open space fields. Tokeneke Association, private, and surrounded by large estates, yet WALK to school, town, train, beach, Rowayton. Ideal flow of space for entertaining and family living, indoors and out! Raise your family with a true sense of history and place. Invaluable.

What I love about the home

A true conversation piece with every visitor! Everyone loves this house. Highly livable for a family, with a great layout for entertaining and daily living. Large country kitchen with dining area. 4-5 fireplaces including a walk-in cooking hearth with beehive oven (pizza party!), and endless charm. Private, with truly gorgeous level, open, pastoral property that looks and feels like acres more, plus a classy pool we truly love, and several unique very old trees we also love. Open/Land Trust property (open fields) bordering two sides! Great location that is very CONVENIENT to school, town, train, water/beach and Rowayton - walk to all. The Tokeneke Association may be the nicest neighborhood in the US; private, with its waterfront, nice neighbors and lovely private roads that are terrific for walking, running, socializing, etc.; six social events each year enhance the beautiful, close-knit neighborhood; and Tokeneke also has private police. Lots of wildlife on the property: fox, mink, turkey, rabbits, deer, raccoon, possum, groundhog, hawks, owls, eagles and many other birds. This is a "lucky" house/home..... A unique opportunity that has been in the family for 45 years. By owner: please contact us at clbhare@att.net or call or txt 917 826-4440. Thank you for looking!

Neighborhood: 06820

Zillow predicts 06820 home values will decrease 2.1% next year, compared to a 2% fall for Darien as a whole. Among 06820 homes, this home is 108% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 26.1% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 06820, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 1.4% greater than in Darien, and 101.9% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 06820 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Darien.
