An Italian-Style Villa in Darien Lists for $7.95M



This Mediterranean-style villa in Darien was formerly the summer home of Walter Sachs.This listing just barely qualifies as an island, accessed via a narrow causeway leading from the mainland in Darien to Delafield Island. The circa-1911, Mediterranean-style manse served since the 1920s as a summer home for Walter Sachs, a grandson of the founder of Goldman Sachs. His estate sold it a couple of decades ago to Eugene Grisanti, a former chief executive of International Flavors and Fragrances, who transformed the nearly 7,500-square-foot, 16-room interiors into his dream of an Italian villa. La-dolce-vita-style features start with the entrance loggia, graced with a fountain. A sweeping staircase leads to a two-story sitting room with a fireplace and a wall of arched doors opening onto a 50-foot-long terrace with views over Scott’s Cove and Long Island Sound. Additional pleasures include 275 feet of private waterfront, a beach, a pool and a deep-water dock. Becky Munro of Halstead Property lists the property for $7,950,000.
