Completely rebuilt from the studs by Tom Faciglia, a Hobi Award Winning Builder, this residence features a mixture of natural elements including stone, slate and sheets of glass that all contribute to the bold feel of this spectacular mini-estate. An oasis of tranquility, it is the perfect getaway – right down to the indoor saltwater pool and Tuscan inspired courtyard.
A gated drive and lovely slate path open to the fabulous courtyard with a fountain, outdoor fireplace and Wisteria-covered pergola that serves as the main entrance to this sophisticated, yet relaxed home. Wide-board hardwood floors, multiple architectural stone fireplaces, lovely moldings, and walls of windows flank coffered ceilings, arched entries and beautiful detailing at every turn.
The sunken family room features a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and views of the spectacular indoor pool, while the stunning gourmet kitchen and breakfast area enjoy honed Absolute Black Granite countertops, an oversized island and professional appliances. The attached butler’s pantry features a wine fridge, dishwasher and two additional refrigerator drawers and adjoins the formal dining room with distinguished cabinetry and a unique circular, wood burning fireplace. A first floor bedroom and powder room round out the main floor.
Upstairs the master wing soars with a vaulted ceiling, sitting room/library with a wet bar, loft, walk-in closet and his & hers baths with dressing rooms. Two additional bedrooms share a lovely hall bath and include details such as window seats, a fireplace and vaulted ceilings. The finished lower level walks out to the gorgeous yard and includes a spacious second family room with a wood burning fireplace and half bath, and a laundry room.
The indoor gunite saltwater pool and spa features a Thassos marble patio and allows access through French doors to the expansive stone patio at the rear of the house. A separate cottage with heat and electricity- perfect for use as an art studio or playroom – complements the level yard complete with perennial beds, mature trees and a pond.
Approximately an hour from New York City, it is located 5 minutes to all that downtown Ridgefield has to offer including 5-star restaurants, a contemporary art museum and all manner of shopping and cultural activities. Perfect as a primary residence or to get away from it all.
