Homes for Sale in Rowayton, CT

A SPECIAL COMMUNITY

Edging its way down the Five Mile River to Long Island Sound, the community of Rowayton offers a unique blend of salty, but traditional, village appeal.

Officially known as the Sixth Taxing District of Norwalk, Rowayton's 4,000-plus residents dwell in 1.28 square miles, in houses closely spaced along narrow streets. Rowaytonites walk almost everywhere, both for exercise and for errands, and exchange friendly greetings along the way. Rowayton Avenue offers most of life's necessities: a market, a hardware store, several restaurants, a post office, a volunteer fire department, two churches, parks, an arts center, and a train station on the NY-NH line. Rowayton has three beautiful beaches; East Beach, South Beach and Bayley Beach, located on beautiful Long Island Sound across from Greens Ledge Lighthouse. On Highland Avenue, the stable of the old Farrell estate has been converted to a community center and a fine library. A farmer's market is held there on summer Fridays.

Founded by farmers and fishermen in the 1600's, Rowayton has gone through several metamorphoses. In the mid-1800's it was a major oystering center, shipping tens of thousands of bushels annually. The oystermen prospered, as evidenced by the large Victorian houses they built along Rowayton Avenue. Later, steamboats brought visitors to the amusement park at Roton Point. In the 20's summer homes were built along the river and beaches, and the boating community began to develop.

Now Rowayton is a suburb, with an easy commute to New York and easy access both to I-95 and the Merritt Parkway. Office buildings offer local employment. The deep harbor of Five Mile River moors more than 500 yachts, lovingly tended by several boatyards. The Rowayton Yacht Club at Hickory Bluff has moorings, launch service and sociability. The Roton Point Club offers members a beach, swimming pools and tennis courts. There are several private beach communities-Bell Island, Pine Point and Rowayton Beach, each with its own parcel of waterfront land.

The steady influx of young families has swelled enrollment at the K-5 Rowayton elementary school . Older students go to Roton Middle School and Brien McMahon High School. There are several good private schools in the area.

Housing styles vary widely, from modest Cape Cods to grand Victorians to Contemporary Colonials, with a luxury condo development thrown in. Housing prices vary as well, with waterfront homes commanding a good price. Still, there is something for everyone in Rowayton, including an easy ambiance that is rare today.
