A 1938-built mansion in Darien is heading to auction, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The colonial home was once owned by the Yardley family, which launched a renowned soap company called Yardley Soap in England in the late 1900s, according to the FBJ. The family sold the 4.5-acre estate at 52 Dorchester Road to the founder of an automobile company in 1985. The six-bedroom home, which has a pool, gardens and stone terraces, will be auctioned off on Nov. 30. The property was “previously on the market for $3.375 million,” the outlet reported. [FBJ]
