New York TimesThe Million-Dollar Manhattan Apartment

With a budget of about $1 million, Patricia Marx began looking for a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment in Manhattan last fall. She soon realized just how limited her options were. “For a while, we were determined to acquire the large two-bedroom in the back of a building on Fifth Avenue,” said Ms. Marx, a staff writer at The New Yorker who is looking for a larger space with her boyfriend, Paul Roossin, a scientist and tech entrepreneur. “The apartment’s asking price was within my range, $995, but the board required you to have amassed three times as much money in your bank account as the purchase price. “In other...

Darien News-ReviewOn The Market Charming Cottage

Nestled on a wooded hilltop in the Tokeneke section of town, the charming English cottage-inspired home at 9 East Trail in Darien offers a cozy and private retreat. With a slate roof, stone exterior and four separate flagstone terraces, the home has a European-countryside feel. Designed by architect Frazier Peters in 1939, many original features have been preserved throughout the home including the arched doorways, tiled windowsills and plastered stucco walls.
