Driving Directions

Enchanting, surprising, unexpected. Rivendell is a one-of-kind hideaway, straddling the two town centers of Darien and Rowayton. A short mile from the Darien train station & less than a half mile from the Rowayton train station, in the Tokeneke School district, this unique property will make your heart sing and your soul heal. The original cottage was built in 1918, remodeled over time, then renovated & expanded from the ground up in 2008. Its present owners have resided here for 45 years. Hidden behind the fence surrounding the property, this open concept home opens up to beautifully large spaces, great architectural details, and overall views of the magnificently & thoughtfully landscaped mature grounds. Flooded with light throughout, the indoors merge stunningly with the outdoors. Constant delights & surprises await you as you discover this bit of paradise. * PLEASE SEE ADDENDUM for more detailed information*
