Walk To Town From This Updated, Vintage Gem

This gorgeous Colonial Farmhouse reflects transitional style with a nod to the past. From the unique front entry door complete with original schoolhouse doorbell, to wide-board floors and exposed beams, this stylish home has been lovingly updated to include all the amenities for modern living. Located just past the iconic Ridgefield Fountain, take a brief walk to town along paved sidewalks to experience everything Village life has to offer including world class dining, the Prospector Theatre, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Main Street shopping, the new Town Library, and more.

The multiple public living spaces of the residence provide for a choice of functionality, making this home adaptable to any lifestyle. The beautiful, central, iron and wood staircase opens to a gorgeous living room with shiplap walls, a wood burning stove and exposed beams. Flanking the other side is a spacious dining room that adjoins a family room with a second fireplace through a wide archway. An updated kitchen continues towards the rear of the home with a leathered granite island and breakfast bar, wood counters, a stunning bay window and a huge pantry. Exposed brick provides a unique detail. The bright and sunny morning room or study is a thoughtful space including built-in corner cabinetry and shelving, and provides a unique place to reflect or start the day. Rounding out the main floor are one full and one half baths, a spacious mudroom with cubbies and cabinetry, and a fabulous sunroom and enclosed porch.

Upstairs, the private rooms are accessed by both the central and a rear staircase, and are all very spacious. The master suite includes an updated marble bathroom with subway and hexagonal tiling and a pedestal sink. In keeping with the era of the home, original-style doors and closets punctuate the decor providing a throwback to simpler times. Three additional bedrooms plus an office join a large, updated full bathroom, as well as a laundry room, to complete the second floor. A staircase to the third or attic level of the home opens to both a sitting room and an additional bedroom.

Outside, the fabulous 1.37 level acres comprises a generous patio and professionally landscaped planting beds. Many mature trees dot the property and compliment a small seasonal brook. A detached two-car garage and workshop provide additional storage and parking. Part of the Ridgefield Historic District, the residence is serviced by town water and town sewer.
