About the Property

Great Home in Rowayton Village

Classic, Charming Rowayton Victorian circa 1898 with modern, bright, clean, cheery, elegant feel, with views of the Five Mile River. Primary residence, well maintained with quality furnishing, home features gourmet kitchen, renovated baths, original moldings, hardwood floors, and many period details. Well furnished and decorated. Great flow for family and relaxing on the porch. Beautiful border flower and rose gardens enclosed by a picket fence. One to five minute walk to restaurants and markets and shops and Rowayton Arts Center in Rowayton Village. Nature Preserve and Library nearby.

Escape the city for a week or long weekend!



This past Friday, I spent the afternoon at Crockett Johnson’s house — 74 Rowayton Avenue (Rowayton, Connecticut), where he and Ruth Krauss lived from 1945 to 1973. Though I wrote their biography and had seen (and photographed) the house from the outside, I’d never been inside. I’ve seen all of their homes from the outside, but — hesitant to intrude on residents’ privacy — not actually been into the homes themselves. Since I was in town to give a talk that evening, Gil and Kim Kernan (the current owners) kindly invited me to spend some time in their home. My visit was one of the happiest events occasioned by my Johnson-Krauss biography.
