DARIEN, CT – The release of 19 new home sites and three new floor plans at Kensett in Darien this past weekend brought throngs of traffic and $15 million in new home sales, with 10 new contracts signed and more expected through the week.
“We’re so gratified to see the market respond so well to Kensett” said Bill McGuinness, developer. “It’s a labor of love, and hopefully that shows in the finished product. Spring is here, we’ve landscaped the first phase and the place looks beautiful. It’s great to see everyone making their plans to move here; we can build the homes, but the folks moving in will make it a neighborhood, and their excitement and happiness will set the tone for Kensett to be a sought-after address.”
Kensett is a garden enclave of 62 attached and detached homes, offering a no-maintenance lifestyle, and the Meeting House, which is a neighborhood gathering place with a large club room with bar, fireplace and big screen TV, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a heated swimming pool, hot tub and outdoor fire pit. A five acre nature conservancy offers walking trails, and a community garden with individual plots and a potting shed is in the works.
Kensett’s spacious, custom-designed homes are built to scrupulous standards. Home sizes range from 3,100 to over 5,000 square feet including finished lower levels, and are priced from $1.295 million to over $1.6 million.
