Distinguished Colonial In Sought-After South Ridgefield
Entering through crescent shaped stonewall gates and manicured grounds, this immaculately kept up residence built by Heritage Homes is the epitome of the New England Colonial. The bluestone path leads to the entry with a soaring foyer. Nine-foot ceilings and abundant natural light complement the blonde hardwood floors, impeccable moldings and classic design features that are the hallmark of this high- end home.
The living room includes a marble surrounded fireplace and opens to an office/library with built-in cabinetry. The French doors on both sides, as well as a bay picture window, make this an inspiring place to work. A formal dining room also makes use of French doors to connect to the expansive kitchen, breakfast room and family room at the rear of the home. The kitchen itself features professional Wolf, Bosch and SubZero stainless steel appliances, granite counters, custom cabinetry, an office workstation and a huge pantry. The breakfast room showcases views of the beautifully landscaped yard and spacious patio, including the built-in fieldstone fireplace for those chilly spring and fall evenings. The family room includes a wood-burning fireplace and also offers access to the patio. Two updated powder rooms and a large mudroom complete the level.
Front or rear staircases offer access to the upper level, which includes a large master suite. The bedroom features a fireplace, a separate sitting room/den with a tray ceiling, two walk-in closets and a gorgeous master bath with a deep tub, oversized seamless glass shower with a seat and multiple shower heads, and a double vanity. Two additional bedrooms feature ensuite baths, while the remaining two bedrooms are Jack and Jill. A laundry room with a utility sink completes the floor.
The very special lower level is an entertainers dream! Walking out to the rear yard, this expansive area includes a games/play room, media area, space for a home gym, a full bath and an incredible 1000 bottle wine cellar. With full height ceilings, it is truly a place to relax with friends.
Professionally designed and landscaped by Glen Gate the gardens, perennial beds and patios complement the gorgeous setting of mature trees. A fire pit area, playset, bluestone and fieldstone hardscaping and even a babbling brook make this idyllic setting second-to-none.
With a standby generator, irrigation system, invisible pet fence, and a quiet location close to all roads down county and minutes to the center of Ridgefield, this home is a quiet respite from the everyday.
