19 Playground Road, Ridgefield, CT

Custom Built Colonial With Victorian Accents

A gracious front porch welcomes you home and is a perfect place to sit and relax on a beautiful spring day, while stained-glass paneling adorns the front door and opens to a foyer with a central staircase. Hardwood floors, 8-inch baseboards, 9-foot ceilings and oversized, double-hung windows lend a Victorian elegance. A stately living room with a wood-burning fireplace with a marble surround connects to an elevated family room / study with sliders to the side yard. This in turn adjoins the kitchen and spacious breakfast room with an additional two sets of sliders offering access to the yard and patio beyond. The white kitchen includes new stainless steel appliances, and the whole area is bright and airy with multiple windows and fresh paint. A bonus large, walk-in pantry provides additional storage. The adjacent formal dining room is adorned with a plaster ceiling medallion and offers easy access to the kitchen for entertaining. An updated powder room completes the level.

Upstairs, the master suite offers a spacious bedroom with views of the charming cupola, as well as a large walk-in closet and a private bath with double sinks and a glass walled tub/shower. Three additional bedrooms share a large hall bath with similar features to the master. The third floor attic is perfect as a nanny or in-law suite. The bedroom includes a very large walk-in closet, while the full bath features a pedestal sink, commode and shower/tub combination. The bonus recreation room includes skylights and multiple windows making it light and bright. The partially finished lower level could easily function as a playroom or additional media room as well.

Feeling a little like a tree house nestled away in the woods, the quaint property also offers a separate two- car garage, which perfectly complements the main home. Access to an unfinished upper level offers an opportunity for expansion. A expansive patio provides ample room for entertaining with a fire pit and lovely landscaping.

Close to all major amenities including the Georgetown shopping and dining district and Caraluzzis supermarket, the home offers an easy commute via Route 7 to Wilton and Danbury, as well as Branchville Road into the heart of Ridgefield.
