It All Happens Here
No matter how many rooms a home may have, everyone always ends up in the kitchen and the great room. This is the space at the heart of daily life – the room to do a bit of homework, catch up on your day – where friends and family gather to share in good company…and countless cups of coffee.
An Epicurean Heaven
The showstopper of this masterfully appointed kitchen is the exclamation-worthy, oversized island with seating for six. The included counter stools are as comfortable as they are chic. The matte concrete island top is a perfect culinary work surface, over time it developes a rich patina enriching the character.
Meal preparation will be effortless with THE gold standard of cooking – a 48″ Wolf gas range with dual ovens and pro hood – plus Sub-Zero refrigeration and Shaw’s apron front, fireclay sink.
The crisp white-on-white custom cabinetry is accessorized with bold modern hardware, granite countertops, task lighting and sleek subway tiles. The elegant nickel pendants tie it all together. The undercounter beverage center completes this delicious space, and the two walk-in-pantries keep all your essentials close at hand.
The Dish Room
The dining room has built-ins galore to house your oversized serving platters, both Grandmothers’ sets of china, and those rarely-used but oh-so-crucial holiday pieces that fit nowhere else. Plus room left over for the extra sets of cocktail glasses, champagne flutes, and all the other items Martha made you buy.
Work At Home In Style
A home office should be functional and professional, yet also personal and comfortable. With as much window as wall, this “corner office” strikes the perfect balance. The custom built-ins with hideaway TV provides a stylish and purposeful space, while the coffered ceiling and architectural mouldings add a touch of vibrant elegance.
The master suite is a well appointed haven where you can escape and recharge. The layout provides ultimate privacy. The fireplace is cozy, romantic and effortless (it’s gas). The 10+ft tray ceiling feels expansive. All this plus an enviable amount of closet space – dual walk-ins with substantial closet systems + double door linen.
Relaxation On Repeat
From the jetted tub with hand-spray to the full shower experience including a rain head + 3 body sprays + handheld + overhead + an endless supply of hot water (thanks to two new tankless hot water units) – we’ve got your hydrotherapy covered. The double vanity keeps all your lotions & potions neat and tidy. Dual closets off the bath make sneaking out for that 6am train without waking your spouse possible. You’re welcome, Honey Bunny.
It’s A Beautiful Day In Your Neighborhood
Life on Rowland Road comes with deeded private beach access to a magnificent stretch of Fairfield Beach known as Penfield. You’ve got year round relaxation in your own backyard, plus space to park and launch your kayak. It’s also an ideal neighborhood to go for a run, bike ride, or leisurely stroll.
The 3rd floor sun deck at Rowland is the ideal place to view the towns annual 4th of July fireworks display. Shake up that mojito and invite some friends. Parking for 8+, not including the 2 car garage, is a huge bonus!

Rowland Road rests at the heart of that type of neighborhood unique to coastal New England. Part beach town, part quiet suburb, there’s a sense of both privacy and community. This is not a tourist destination. People have roots here. Neighbors share greetings while walking their dogs or taking sunset bike rides along the shoreline pathways. They also volunteer at the local schools, meet at church and temple, and spend social evenings in downtown Fairfield, just a few minutes away.

From the addictive dumplings and savory pho of Mecha Noodle Bar, to the wide variety of specialty foods offered at markets like Organika and A&S Italian Fine Foods, Fairfield boasts an impressive array of dining options.

Fairfield’s Annual 4th of July Celebrations
A patriotic tradition started over 125 years ago by the Fairfield United Veterans Organization. “While the town’s fireworks display will light up the night sky on July 3, the ceremony on July 4 provides a meaningful and moving opportunity to celebrate the historical significance of this great American holiday.” – Fairfield Patch
Fairfield Theatre Company
“The Fairfield Theatre Company is a nonprofit center for the arts and culture located in the heart of downtown Fairfield. Bringing together a community of musicians, actors, artists, writers, fans, and supporters who are dedicated to the simple premise that the broadest spectrum of live entertainment and cultural exchange is essential to the vitality of our society.” – FTC

Wide Open Spaces
“The Town of Fairfield owns over 1,100 acres of open space that includes upland forest, lakes, rivers, salt marsh, wetlands and meadows throughout inland and coastal Fairfield. These recreational parcels provide opportunities for uses such as hiking, leisurely walking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. In addition, they enhance and conserve natural resources, protect fish and wildlife habitats, serve as outdoor classrooms for nature study, and contribute significantly to the beautiful rural characteristics that are so much a part of the Town of Fairfield.”
All Hands On Deck
“Because it’s a shoreline town, Fairfield has many boaters–and the town has two marinas, the South Benson Marina which accommodates 630 boats from 14.1’ to 36′ and Historic Ye Yacht Yard at Southport Harbor with space for 60 small boats to a maximum 14”. Ye Yacht Yard also provides boat launch services to residents and access to moorings in Southport Harbor as well as 25 Kayak racks are available. There are also boat rack rentals available at Penfield Beach and Jennings Beach. Jennings Beach also features a well-used fishing pier with a bait shack nearby.”
The long pier at the end of Jennings Beach is just one of the many local fishing holes.
