Chris Merritt and Janet Olmstead from the Darien office of Halstead Property present a waterfront home for sale on Canfield Island in Norwalk. The stone and shingle beach house has 170 feet of direct Sound frontage with a private beach.

Located at 32 Shorehaven Road, the home features four bedrooms (currently configured as three), four full and two half bathrooms and is offered for $3.45 million. The waterfront terrace opens to views of the Sound and can be accessed from the three main rooms of the home by French doors. Built in 1919, the home has been renovated with modern conveniences. The entry hall also has one-of-a-kind 19th century Chinese panels believed to be original to the house.

"You don't often see listings on this island," Olmstead said. "With just 12 homes, it is a rare opportunity to own here. This home would be wonderful anywhere but this is a unique piece of Fairfield County. In addition, the home comes with its own mooring so one can set sail and explore the Norwalk Islands and the surrounding area."
