8 Rings End Road
8 Rings End Road,
Old world charm married with today's modern amenities, this 1844 Greek Revival style home has it all. First occupied by Ira Scofield, a Darien First Selectman for 27 years, 8 Rings End is an elegant beauty with over 5000 sq ft, high ceilings, 5 bedrooms/5.1 baths including an amazing in-law suite. Period details abound with wide plank pine floors, bishops cabinet, accordion wood door, old-world window trim and fireplace/door hardware. The home is bathed in sunshine with windows galore including a light filled & cheery updated eat-in kitchen with SS appliances, island/breakfast bar & prep sink and built-in work station. Check out the spacious formal dining room where Darien residents gathered in 1855 to formally organize St. Lukes Parish. There's a gracious foyer with transom windows and a curved open stairway. Other unique features include the stone basement hearth and the intimate covered porch. Enhancement opportunities exist in the semi-finished attic and the second partially finished basement. The expansive level lot has mature plantings plus a possible pool site. Just steps onto the same side-of-the-street sidewalk to Blue Ribbon Hindley Elementary School, and all of the local amenities Noroton offers. That same sidewalk takes you the other direction over the iconic Rings End Bridge to one of our two town beaches, Pear Tree Pt. Immerse yourself in this fabulous example of Darien history.
