ROWATON, Conn. – A custom Colonial home on the coastline in Rowayton has hit the market for $2.195 million, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced.
The estate in Rowayton, one of the state’s most picturesque beach areas, is just east of Darien along the coastline of Long Island Sound and the Norwalk Islands.
“Finding this level of comfort, craftsmanship and privacy all in a single property in Rowayton can be challenging. This exceptional home has it all and makes the dream of a sophisticated coastal lifestyle close to work and good schools finally attainable," said Christine Straden, a Darien/Rowayton agent who has the listing.
The home, designed and constructed in 2004 by award-winning architects ERI Building & Design, is on a bright and quiet street, with a large level property and professional landscaping.
Inside the 5,200 square feet of living space, there is fine architectural detail and craftsmanship throughout. Well-proportioned rooms with reclaimed hardwood flooring and an open and airy floor plan provide easy flow for entertaining, with French doors open to a flagstone patio and perennial gardens outside. A two-story paneled entry hall leads to formal living and dining rooms. The state-of the-art kitchen with butler’s pantry and breakfast room connect to a large family room with fireplace and built-in bookshelves.
The four upstairs bedrooms include a master suite with fireplace and sunset-view balcony. A large playroom/office, mud room and attached two-car garage round out the home.
Surrounded by water on three sides, Rowayton offers countless opportunities for water sports enthusiasts, including boaters, sailors and beachcombers.
The popular nearby Bayley Beach provides a children’s playground, picnic tables, tennis courts, baseball field, basketball court as well as volleyball area and is the venue for a popular summer concert series and the July Fourth fireworks. Other traditional town events include the Memorial Day Parade, River Ramble and Shakespeare on the Sound.
“I am delighted to be representing such a stunning home, and can’t wait for others to appreciate and enjoy the quality of life offered in this picturesque village on Connecticut’s charming coastline,” said Straden.
