A contemporary cottage nestled alongside the Five Mile River in Darien offers private waterfront living in a custom-built home just outside of the nearby village of Rowayton in Norwalk.

Built by Fox Hill Builders, the home gently cascades down to river's edge, offering river views from nearly every room, with a large riverfront patio and upper deck.

PB Architects and Sarah Weaver Interiors designed the property with elegant modern touches like contemporary railings both inside and out, custom built-ins and cabinetry, and radiant-heated bathrooms.

The home also features a bright and spacious open area encompassing the kitchen, dining room and family room.

Undoubtedly the heart of the home, the New York-inspired space offers open-concept living, ideal for both entertaining and everyday living.

The contemporary kitchen features chic touches throughout, from sleek polished nickel hardware to pendant lights and Jet Mist granite counters with a leathered finish.
