277 Mamanasco Road, Ridgefield, CT

Gorgeous Lakefront Property With Spectacular Views

Breathtaking views of Lake Mamanasco abound in all seasons from this fully renovated and expanded contemporary home. A newly installed flagstone and Belgian block walkway gently meanders up to a quaint front porch, while the foyer opens to a modern open floor plan with transitional design, walls of picture windows and beautiful vaulted ceilings.

Moving through the home, the dining room features hardwood floors and a vaulted ceiling, as well as a “peephole” window allowing the ever-present view in. The adjoining kitchen includes a continuation of the hardwood floor, as well as boasting stainless steel appliances, granite counters, an island and breakfast bar, cherry wood cabinets and a vaulted ceiling and skylight. Light and bright, the open floor plan is anchored by a three-sided fireplace featuring a modern stone surround, which begs for a crackling fire while you watch the leaves change or snow fall. The expansive living room offers panoramic views via a bay window with a built-in seat with storage and also offers access to one side of the wrap-around composite deck.

True indoor/outdoor living is experienced from the family room, which takes advantage of wall-to-wall glass sliding doors that can be fully retracted to expose the expansive deck. Creating a true outdoor living space, this is the best place to enjoy long summer evenings watching ducks, geese and all manner of nature’s creatures while sitting by a fire pit or grilling an evening meal. An elegant powder room completes the main floor.

Upstairs hardwood floors are found through out and a magnificent, divide-light picture window provides views of the perfectly landscaped hill behind the property, including a stepping-stone path across a footbridge to two seating areas. Surrounded by a boxwood hedge and a wrought iron gate for ambiance, a pebbled “lookout” is the perfect place for a fire pit, swing seat and unobstructed view of the lake.

Moreover, the master bedroom includes a panoramic picture window and a vaulted ceiling creating the ultimate place for relaxation. An oversized walk-in closet/dressing room joins a master bath with a glass shower, Jacuzzi tub and a double vanity to complete the suite. An additional bedroom with views plus an office/bedroom and an updated guest bath complete the floor.

The finished walk-out lower level includes a recreation room plus bedroom with a full bath perfect as an in-law or guest suite, if so desired. The full bath includes unique sliding glass door, circular shower along with a modern vanity and glass tile accents. French doors from the bedroom provide access to a private patio with a hot tub and seating area. Extensive wall-to-wall closets and built-in shelving offer ample storage space, while a mudroom off the two-car garage and a large laundry room complete the level.

The grounds are second-to-none with extensive landscaping and specimen plantings, seating areas, decks, a hot tub, a private dock, shed, boat rack, and of course, the incredible views from absolutely everywhere. Truly spectacular!
