Formerly owned by the CEO of Blue Buffalo animal food products, no expense was spared to transform this approximately 6,000 sq ft center hall Colonial into an exceptional property.
Gracious Living Spaces
Upon entering, the grandeur and splendor of the mill work throughout the home is immediately apparent. 9 foot ceilings with crown molding, built-in shelving and cabinets, hand crafted paneling, transoms and more adorn every spacious room.
The oversized eat-in kitchen offers all modern amenities and high-end appliances from SubZero, Thermador, Viking and Miele. The high-quality custom cabinetry was designed by Kingswood, with ample storage space, a full-sized pantry, large island, and muliiple outlets & TV cable access for all your kitchen gadgets and entertainment. The breakfast room walks out through French doors to the spacious deck. Other highlights include a library with built-in cabinetry and shelving, formal living and dining rooms, a family room, hardwood floors throughout, and two beautiful fireplaces.
Every bedroom has its own full bathroom, TV cabling and walk-in closets, so there’s plenty of room for small and large families alike. High-end window blinds have been custom crafted for most rooms and offer ease of use and beauty. The master bedroom suite offers a sitting area, large walk-in closet, expansive marble bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a private view of the outdoors. The large upstairs bonus room can be configured as a den, office space, or as a playroom, while the walk-up attic offers easy and convenient storage space and could easily add an additional 1,000 square feet of living space if finished. A full laundry room offers a sink and high-end washer and dryer for convenient care.
Much More Than A Basement
The lower level is the ideal kid-cave, mom-cave & man-cave all in one. Sectioned off, the large living space (about 800 sq ft) has a built-in theater with luminescent white paint to enhance the installed projection system, with plenty of room for a pool table, full size air hockey table, and other games or living space. The basement also has a separate finished room that can easily be converted into a bathroom as it resides under and next to all existing plumbing infrastructure. A utility closet provides easy access to all the water works and the separate room provides a work-shop, work-out space, and easy access to the boiler, oil tanks, water heater and other utilities. Additionally, storage for wine and other “essentials” can be found. The walk-out basement assures that oil, water, and air service professionals need not trek through the house to do their work. A generator hookup is also provided.
Car Collector’s Dream
The heated three car garage boasts high ceilings and once contained a car lift to stack cars upon each other, so up to six cars could fit in the space. The garage can be accessed directly from the house, a back door or the garage doors.
Lush, Park-Like Property
The property is exceptionally flat for Ridgefield and is beyond gorgeous with the park-like acre featuring professional landscaping and irrigation. Completely fenced, dogs can roam free without worry and the Walpole fencing is the highest quality PVC – requiring zero maintenance, yet retaining a natural and beautiful look. In the summer, when the trees bloom, the yard is exceptionally private with little visibility to neighbors.
