Waterfront Estates, Darien, Connecticut

Waterfront Estates, Darien, Connecticut.

Direct Waterfront Estates in Darien, Connecticut, the majority of these estates run from the three million dollar price tag and up will past the ten million mark. These estates range from having old world charm from when they were first built in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and run the gamete up to newly built state of the art homes.  Average size tends to be between four thousand square feet up to six thousand square feet and beyond. The majority of properties are one plus acres with a few reaching up past four acres, but what they all have in common is direct waterfront and along with that beautiful views, some close to being 360 degree’s wide. Take a look at a few of the pictures I was able to take and enjoy. 

There are a few waterfront properties available between the one to three million dollar mark. One such property is on 2 acres with over 400 feet of waterfront currently on for $2.83 million which would be prime for a renovation or new construction.

The Darien fall 2010 real estate market is starting off with a run, for more information on these homes and others in Darien contact David Popoff at William Raveis.

 The fall real estate market in Rowayton is opening up; driving around today looking at broker open houses I was amazed at what I saw. There are a number of new construction homes on the market, the two I viewed today were each over 4,000 square feet one just over and one just under the $1.5 million asking price. Do you want water views, Rowayton has a lot of those, viewed 3 today with one being directly on the water tidal inlet. Do you want to walk or ride your bike to town, the beach or your boat dock, well Rowayton is the perfect community for that. Rowayton homes start from around 1,000 square feet and can go up past 5,000 square feet; you will surely find what you are looking for. Rowayton home prices in today’s market start around $500,000 and Rowayton year to date average sales price for August 2010 for single family homes is   $1,534,453.

Offset your Carbon Footprint ~ Common Sense Habits. Connecticut.

Offset your Carbon Footprint ~ Common Sense Habits, ConnecticutConnecticut Sunflower

I came across this website on 101 ways to reduce your Carbon Footprint and was amazed at how easy it is to do. It is really just good old comon sense, here are a few examples:    

  • turn off the light as you leave the room
  • turn of the water faucet as you brush your teeth
  • use reusable bags
  • repair door and window weatherstripping
  • adjust thermostats to save energy in empty/unused rooms
  • use both sides of copy paper

Growing up we all practiced these practical habits but it seems in today’s world we are to busy, maybe a little lazy, but what ever the excuse we need to get back to basics and start reducing out carbon footprint and stop wasting natural resources. On the 101 list there are simple home maintenance and improvement items that you only need to do once or yearly to save you money and reduce your carbon footprint:

  • install motion detectors on outside lights
  • install additional insulation
  • install programmable thermostats
  • yearly cleaning and maintenance of boilers/furnaces
  • change you air filters
  • install low flow shower heads

These are simple easy solutions so lets get going. On Sept 18 and 19, 2010 you can find many of these items and ideas at the Connecticut Live Green Show in Norwalk, Connecticut. Free admission at the Connecticut Live Green Festival you can enjoy great food, eco-shopping, music, environmental speakers and exhibits.
