Rowayton is a historic fishers town with pittoresque views and houses. It is all about enjoying the outdoor life on the water, on the beach and/or on the tennis courts. Great spot for offshore fishing, boating, sailing, surfing paddle boarding etc. It is a friendly quite community with private beach associations (we are a member so you are as well!). Ideal spot to relax for a long weekend, week or month as it is only a step away from NYC.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband and I are from Amsterdam, the Netherlands and moved to NYC 12 years ago. We have 4 kids ages 1, 4, 5 and 6. We both love the vibe and energy of the City but (especially) with kids we got to appreciate the quiet time outside the City as well. A few years ago we discovered Rowayton, a beautiful and friendly beach town. We bought our house in 2011 and have spent most of our weekends there since.

Why the Owner Chose Rowayton, Norwalk, CT, USA:
It is the perfect place to relax! It really feels like vacation when you are there; the beach, the beautiful views and amazing coastline, the sunset, nature, the outdoor activities make it a unique getaway!
