Coastal Connecticut Cottage

About the House

Style: Late 18th-century shingle style cottage with wide-plank floors, plaster walls, and exposed beams

Space: 3,800 square feet spread over three floors with four bedrooms and four full baths

Setting: The main drag of Rowayton, Connecticut, a quaint harbor town with a population of 4,000 that’s home to many sea-seeking artists and writers

View: From the front porch, Five Mile River, which flows into the Long Island Sound, plus neighbors casually strolling to and from town.

The front of the house.

I am in love with this entryway! Especially the white tree!

What do you think about the simple fireplace? 

Nice white bathroom.

I love the artwork above the bed in this guestroom.

There's more information and photos of this home at Coastal Living.


  1. I miss the Five Mile River, spent most of my life in Rowayton, on our boat and @ Roton Point. I miss it so!

  2. Beautiful, I enjoyed my visit to your blog. Wishing you happiness and happy holidays, Katherine
    P,S. please stop by for a visit and don't forget to enter the giveaway!

  3. Yes, please. Where is the "add to cart" button for that house???

  4. Love Courtney's comment. Too bad we couldn't just click "add to cart" when we see a house like this!

    I fell for this house in Coastal Living, too. The only thing I wasn't sure about was the fireplace without the mantel. But that'll be easy to fix when I move in... ;-)

    Have a good weekend, Desiree!


I love reading your sweet comments!
