Kensett has also opened its 5 acre Woodland Trail. Working with a team of biologists and landscape architects, Sun Homes has removed all invasive species from the protected woodlands and replaced them with additional native plantings in keeping with the existing hydrology and light, creating habitats for turtles, frogs, dragonflies and bluebirds, among other indigenous species. The ponds have been restored, wetlands plantings added, a meadow of wildflowers and native grasses planted, and the canopy of the forest opened up to allow the stands of native hardwood trees to reach their full potential.
Kensett is the first new home community to be built in Darien in a generation, and has won numerous National Association of Home Builders awards including Best Townhome Plan and Best Clubhouse. Kensett fills a unique niche in the market for those who insist on quality, lasting value and inspired design in a new home within the context of historic Darien, one of the nation’s most desirable communities. Long recognized for its top-ranked public school system and charming downtown area, Darien offers an easy commute to New York City as well as area beaches, clubs and shopping.
