Sited on a wonderful level lot, this impressive Colonial features a beautiful slate walkway, cedar shakes, architectural windows and a lovely colonnaded front porch. The soaring foyer gives way to an open interior balcony and stunning chandelier, highlighting the grace of the home. Brazilian cherry floors, surround sound, extensive crown molding, baseboards and paneling, and a fresh modern color palette create a serene environment that flows effortlessly from one room to the next.
The formal living room features a gas fireplace with a basket-weave marble tile surround and a coffered ceiling. Glass French pocket doors open to the soaring 18-foot high family room with a spectacular view of the yard and woods beyond. Including a fieldstone fireplace and myriad windows, this room is a stunning focal point for the home. The adjoining breakfast room flows through to the spacious kitchen, which includes Absolute Black granite counters, two Fisher & Paykel drawer-style dishwashers, double Dacor ovens, a gas Thermador cooktop with 4-burners and a grill, and an integrated SubZero refrigerator/freezer. The large island includes a breakfast bar and ample cabinetry providing enough storage for the most avid chef. The stately formal dining room includes a butler’s pantry with a wine fridge and wet bar, as well as a tray ceiling and a unique brushed nickel and glass chandelier. Completing the main floor are two powder rooms, an office and a mudroom, as well as access to the 3-car garage.
The master suite is truly a zen oasis. Entering through double doors, the spacious bedroom includes a raised sitting room with a gas fireplace surrounded by tumbled marble and custom built-in cabinetry. Crown molding, columns and distinctive millwork all contribute to the luxurious feel of the room. Two closets- including a large walk-in – compliment the sumptuous master bath, which includes rare & exquisite hand-cut Mughal marble flooring, a deep claw-footed jetted soaking tub, oversized glass shower with Mughal marble tile and multiple rain heads, separate commode, and two vanities with custom cabinetry. A guest bedroom with an ensuite bath, and two additional bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bath complete the living space on the upper level. A full laundry room with cabinetry and built-in hampers is also found here.
Outdoors, the sweeping 2.0 acres encompasses beautiful perennial plantings and wide swathes of lawn. Woods line the property and provide privacy, while backing onto one of Twin Ridge’s many ponds. The fun family atmosphere of this neighborhood means you can expect to look forward to Halloween gatherings, end of year parties, summer get-togethers, yearly ski trips and many other activities. Located in desirable south Ridgefield, the home is also in a great commute location for those traveling to NYC or down county.
