249 Nod Road, Ridgefield, CT

Beautiful Vintage Property Close To Town

Showcasing an impressive and picturesque setting, the classic main house is accompanied by a separate cottage, a detached garage and a horse barn.

Welcome Home
Nestled on scenic Nod Road, this beautifully updated Greek Revival-style home features the workmanship of a bygone era, while allowing for all manner of modern amenities. Beautiful honey-colored chestnut floors gleam in the sunlight while 9-foot ceilings, crown moldings, and vintage paneling abound. Myriad divided-light windows bathe the home in natural light from all sides and allow for spectacular views seldom found in a property this close to the Village center. The one-bedroom guest cottage is perfect as a rental or as an in-law/au pair residence, and adds to the charm of the overall setting, while the barn provides shelter for horses, or a creative opportunity.

Charm Beyond Compare
Past fluted Greek columns and a herringbone brick patio, a wide front door opens into a spacious dining room filled with sunlight and featuring custom cabinets and bookshelves. Turn right, and you enter into a cozy living room with an original double-sided fireplace, complete with a beehive oven, as well as original cabinetry and closets. Exposed hand-hewn beams and a Dutch door add to the character of this stunning room. Beyond the dining room is a family room that includes the second fireplace, which in turn flows into a beautifully updated, designer-white kitchen featuring professional appliances including a Viking 6-burner gas cooktop, integrated SubZero refrigerator, Thermador double ovens and a Bosch dishwasher. Marble counters and ample cabinetry continue into the large butler’s pantry, which allows for plenty of storage and includes a wine fridge, with a laundry room and a mudroom nearby. The breakfast room provides stunning views of the yard, fields and woods through a large bow window. For even better views, seek out the insulated four-season sunroom: a little piece of heaven in every type of weather and the perfect place to watch the blazing colors of fall, the snowdrifts of winter, the stunning blooms of spring and the green lushness of summer.

Relax In Style
The upper level of the home can be accessed by either a front or a rear staircase. The master suite includes polished chestnut hard wood floors, two large closets, and a sitting room, which can also be used as an office. The large master bath includes marble floors, a custom-built double vanity and a large seamless glass shower. Two of the additional four bedrooms include ensuite baths, while the remaining bedrooms are serviced by a vintage-style hall bath.


Seldom does a property provide such incredible views this close to town. The expansive, mostly-cleared 3.5 acres stretch away from the house out to the adjoining open space. Fenced for horses, the property provides a scenic respite from a busy day. The large L-shaped pool is surrounded by gardens and stone terraces, allowing for hours of summer fun. Perennial plantings and professional landscape design lend a relaxed yet organized style to the surrounding beds while evergreens and other mature trees create a sense of privacy. In a great commute location only an hour from NYC, and close to everything Ridgefield has to offer, this beautiful property is nothing short of stunning.
