Monday, October 13, 2014
16 Juniper Lane in Rowayton.  It has a very similar feeling to houses built by a certain builder in Darien... who must remain nameless... but we are sure you know who.

16 Juniper Road captures exactly what customers want these days in a new house. Simple, chic and playing out all the fantasies one has of living a minimalist lifestyle.

Making the Rowayton market proud right now is Liz Beinfield’s new listing at 16 Juniper Road in Rowayton.   Tucked tightly in the Beach Association, you will find five bedrooms, four and a half baths, beautiful reclaimed wood floors and beams as well as blinding southern exposure that will light up your life!  Asking $2,395,000 offered through Kelly Associates. SOLD/CLOSED

Kitchen that extends into a lovely reading and television seating area.

Gorgeous color in the kitchen

Gorgeous color (and texture on that island) in the kitchen



Oh those doors, those doors, those doors.


But we shouldn’t put all our focus on that perfect kitchen, family room space. The other spaces are equally fantastic.  From the (stucco-like walls), curved archways and tone on tone colors, this home hits the mark.







The window filled cupola is where this light fixture hangs from….very dramatic



The master bedroom has a clean, cool, spa-like feel.

Moving on from 'fab master bath", we are going straight for 'KILLER" master bath!

Sun drenched terrace

The windows (our favorite), the sliders and terrace make for a perfect package.

If you are looking in Rowayton OR if you are in the Darien market and want to “look”outside the box, this is the house to start with. Give us a call and we will show you what we mean.


If you are working with an agent, this is not a solicitation.



Poof and it’s gone – 133 Rowayton Avenue

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Wow that was fast. 133 Rowayton Avenue came on at an impressive $3,950,000 (and don’t forget those Rowayton taxes) and was sold (with 3 offers) instantly.  Of course it is fabulous, has a slip and is maintenance free but this is still a great sign for the Rowayton market.



Gorgeous floors, gorgeous pantry, gorgeous kitchen!


The great room on the 2nd floor. A wonderful space to relax and escape.


Well appointed family room off of the kitchen.


We have always been charmed by these appealing town homes and it did not disappoint.

Wish we could say we could show you but you will have to wait for another unit to hit the market.

Flea is a small shop in the heart of Rowayton village (1588 Rowayton Avenue) that we came upon one day during open houses.  What initially caught our eye was the gorgeous new garage in the parking lot behind Sails Restaurant.  I am planning on building a detached garage (one day) and wanted to take a closer look.  We then realized that there was a cute shop housed in the garage.  Run by Laura Grabe and Laura Jayson (aka the dough girl), they have turned this garage into something special.  The spot is stocked with everything from dog beds and tunics, framed art, woven baskets and candles.  The best part is you can shop while tasting the delicious dough girl treats and Espresso Neat coffee.

dough*girl baking company has been run by Laura Jayson since 2007 and her tasty treats have been blessing us all over town.  She runs the shop in the morning, then goes to her kitchen in Stamford and bakes her treats for the next day.  She rises at the crack of dawn and delivers them to places like Espresso Neat before heading back to Flea.Her passion truly shows and their taste is second to none.  Don’t miss this little jewel in Rowayton.

Laura Jayson of dough girl fame

I had found these stools and have been lusting after them ever since.  I needed 5 but they only had 4.  I decided to go back last week to see if somehow, magically, 5 would appear.

Antique stools with a cool blue chevron fabric

Well they still only had 4 (someone PLEASE buy these fab stools) but I stumbled across something even more special.  Right there in front of me was a Dorothy Draper Imposter Chest.  I could not believe my eyes!  I was so nervous to look at the price tag…..these typically run over $1000 in poor condition and this one was in very good shape.  When I saw the price was $450 I could not believe my eyes. I was about to own my very first Draper Imposter. For more information on Dorothy Draper and her Heritage Chests check out this great write up by Circa Who.

I can't believe they have not sold this huge Xanax

The prettiest looking surfboard

You can even pick up some Dough Girl treats and coffee

We loaded it into my car and it just fit!!!

Into the house it went and fit perfectly in my living room. Even my husband liked it. Thinking of a Christopher Spitzmiller lamp with a pop of color like chartreuse or orange.

So in anticipation of Memorial Day check out this cute shop tucked into a corner of Rowayton village. It is the kind of place that when you leave, will have found a friend and a new local lust!
