Darien/Rowayton agent Christine Straden is proud to represent the new listing, which is offered for sale at $2,195,000. Rowayton, one of Connecticut’s most picturesque beach towns, is located just east of Darien along the stunning coastline of the Long Island Sound and the Norwalk Islands. The active, family-oriented community offers the perfect weekend escape destination, as well as an enticing opportunity to settle down and plant roots.
It’s hard to believe that such a quaint beach haven is less than an hour from the city that never sleeps! With New York City right around the corner, Rowayton offers residents the best of both worlds, with small-town values and big-time dreams both easily within reach.
Surrounded by water on three sides, Rowayton is a water sports enthusiast’s dream, offering countless opportunities for boaters, sailors or beachcombers to breathe in the sea air and take in the stunning water views—a scene that is so beautiful, it has been a source of inspiration for many famous and local seascape paintings for over a century. Bayley Beach provides residents with 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 4th fireworks. Other traditional town events include the Memorial Day Parade, River Ramble and Shakespeare on the Sound.
“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 attainable,” said Straden. “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.”
