Living at The Point, a gorgeous Long Island Sound waterfront property in Rowayton, Connecticut, feels a little like being on vacation. Located at 44 Yarmouth Road, the home was constructed on a private peninsula in the prestigious beach community of Bell Island, and offers glorious views of the Sound, a sandy beach, and its own dock and mooring. The residence also provides pathways and a sitting deck for taking in those exceptional beach and water views, and exterior lighting and sound systems encourage outdoor enjoyment all day long. In addition, the property is only minutes away from Rowayton Village, with its restaurants, markets, scenic ambiance and community-oriented atmosphere. This is one property that really delivers an escape from the busy pace of daily life.
Offered at $4,350,000 through William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty‘s Darien Brokerage, the brilliant shingle-style home situated in this spectacular waterfront setting is regarded as an iconic property in the area, an outstanding architectural achievement that has been crafted with painstaking attention to detail. Throughout the 12 rooms and 5,000 square feet of interior living, the beachfront home blends unsurpassed quality with distinctive antique finishes from every corner of the world. Some of these include the Brazilian rosewood floor planking, the handmade Moorish tiles from Seville, Spain, and the early American industrial lighting, in addition to the antique doors, fireplace mantles and newel posts.
Standout spaces include the entry foyer with its custom moldings, cherry stairs and Corinthian fluted columns; the family room with its Rowayton river stone fireplace, antique sandstone crown details and custom wood window blinds; and the fully outfitted kitchen with its cabinetry from Klaff’s, granite countertops and top-of-the-line fixtures and appliances. With five bedrooms and five baths, the home has an elegant master bedroom with antique cherub-design floor-to-ceiling passage doors, his and her walk-in master dressing rooms and a fireplace mantle taken from the Southport estate of Jack Welch. The blue and rust-veined granite master bath offers a double sink vanity, high-end vanity faucets and valves, and Venetian plaster walls. The residence also has a nautical-themed third floor, with starboard and port bedrooms that both feature interior doors from the famed Simmons Greenwich estate, a steam bath with a unique bell-shaped shower, and a captain’s bridge that can serve as an office. With the combination of meticulous craftsmanship and magnificent waterfront, this property defines Rowayton living at its finest.
