Rowayton is more Maine fishing village than Connecticut commuter suburb. Nestled across a calm harbor from Darien just 40 miles from New York City, the salty village retains the feel of being miraculously off the beaten path. Bypassed by the Post Road, the hamlet's main thoroughfare is Rowayton Avenue, which dead-ends past Community Beach. The train tracks skirt the northern edge of town, conveniently close for commuters yet peacefully distant, allowing an ambient soundtrack of puttering trawlers and lapping tides. It's a Wes Anderson film meeting a boater's paradise, from its jewel box architecture to exalted seafood market.
At the center of this enchantment sits Five Mile Landing, a discrete collection of luxury marina townhomes directly in the center of the village.
The views of the harbor are enviable. Rowayton is well-known in the yachting community and an influential base for boaters from near and far, both as a destination and as the home of many businesses supporting the industry. Grand Banks—a leading regional dealer is in town—and Hinckleys seem berthed here in perpetuity.
Each home boasts marble baths, granite countertops large walk-in closets and ample attic storage. State-of-the-art wiring for secure wi-fi, audio, video and phone is standard, as is extra insulation for sound proofing, privacy and efficiency.
