French country living meets waterfront elegance in the estate located at 17 Tokeneke Trail.  Plucked from the pages of storybook, the French Norman style manor is designed to take full advantage of its sweeping shoreline views and quiet private peninsula on Scott’s Cove.  Instant access to the Long Island Sound and beyond from a private dock will delight any water sport enthusiast, while residents will enjoy gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from the expansive deck that hugs the charming but modern main home.  Situated on 2.3 private acres along Scott’s Cove, the property also features a charming guest cottage – ideal for use as a private escape or for weekend guests.

A classic stone walkway greets visitors upon arrival and meanders through a rose garden on its way to the front door.  Upon entering, natural lighting abounds from all angles in a grand yet welcoming reception area that gives access to multiple living areas on this first floor.  Natural stone provides solid footing for the home, which also features hardwood floors in most living and bedroom suites.  Rounded ceilings, walls and pillars echo the curves of the shoreline and render a larger-than-life feel to the welcoming area, which is open to the second floor.

Culinary artists will delight in the spacious kitchen designed with the cook in mind.  A solid, show-stopping L-shaped island offers both beauty and function – its marble countertop expands the workspace and tops a wall of storage below.  The chef will never be lonely in this gourmet kitchen – ample seating along the island and in the adjoining breakfast nook with views of the Cove mean he or she will never miss the conversation.  An elegant butler’s pantry adds to the storage space and echoes the kitchen’s custom wood and stone design.  Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and hardware and commercial-quality vent/lighting over the gas stovetop are a solid nod to the home’s appeal of both quality foundations and dedication to modern amenities.
