DARIEN, Conn., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "Cove House", an elegant French Norman-style estate located on 2.03 private acres abutting Scott's Cove in Darien, with access to the Long Island Sound and less than an hour from New York City, has officially closed for nearly $8 million following the June 25 auction, Concierge Auctions announces. The sale, which took place in cooperation with listing broker Doug Milne and buyer's agent Cathy Lawton, both of Kelly Associates, marks the highest residential price year-to-date in the Darien Multiple Listing Service.

"The auction process attracted interest, generated competition and created a market. Everything promised to me was executed. It was a thrilling experience, and I firmly believe the future of luxury home sales will be increasingly weighted towards the Concierge Auctions methodology," stated the seller, Andrew Osinski.

Cove House, located at 17 Tokeneke Trail, is a five bedroom, seven bathroom residence designed in an elegant French Norman style. Situated on 2.03 beautifully landscaped, private acres on Scott's Cove, the property features a manor home, guest cottage and private dock with access to the Long Island Sound and beyond. Darien, Connecticut is one of the most affluent towns in the United States and was rated one of the best places to live in the country by CNN.

"My clients had been looking at the Darien waterfront areas for a couple of years and simply couldn't find the right property at the right price. Like most buyers in the market today they are savvy business people and wanted to make sure they not only loved the home but also felt secure in the price they were paying," stated Lawton. "The Concierge staff was extremely professional, readily available, and very informative. From the bidder registration to the exciting 'live' auction, this was a pleasurable experience."
