56 Lewis Drive, Ridgefield, CT

Fabulous Colonial in Desirable Walk-To-Town Location

Set back from the road on a quiet drive, this residence has a relaxed, yet stately presence with copper accents, cobblestone paths and lovely curb appeal. Upon entering, the wide foyer opens to a comfortable living room complete with crown molding, hardwood floors and a brick, wood-burning fireplace with a custom wood mantle. The hardwood floors and crown moldings continue throughout the home, joining wainscoting, built-ins and other millwork to create continuity throughout the main floor.

The formal dining room includes a bay window and connects to the kitchen via a butler’s pantry, which also provides access to the elegant main floor powder room and the expansive laundry. The renovated kitchen includes grey granite counters, professional stainless steel Bosch and Frigidaire appliances, a large additional pantry, and ample cabinetry. Perfectly designed for the most discerning Chef, it also includes a breakfast room with a large picture window overlooking the lush yard, and connects directly to the family room. The family room features a second fireplace and adjoins the screened porch and deck, making summers relaxing and enjoyable.

The main floor master suite is tucked away in its own wing and includes two walk-in closets and a spectacular marble master bath with a Jacuzzi soaking tub, seamless glass shower and His & Hers vanities. A second bedroom also resides on the main floor with access to its own full bath.

Upstairs, an additional two spacious bedrooms include walk-in closets and share an updated full bath, while a multi-purpose room with coved ceilings serves as either a fifth bedroom or a bonus room/office. The unfinished lower level is clean and dry, offering ample room for storage or expansion if desired. The property also includes a generator, programmable thermostats, remote control of the pool equipment, a security system, a heat pump on the upper level for added efficiency, and thermopane windows.

Outside, the rolling lawns provide ample places for play, and the professional landscaping is simple, yet defines the space well. The saltwater pool is the perfect place to relax on hot summer days and is complimented by a whimsical pool shed. Elegant flagstone coping provides a great place to sit and daydream, while a second seating and barbeque area beyond the shed provides yet another area to entertain. If true outdoor living is your thing, this is the house for you!

Located just a few minutes walk to the center of the Village, and in a perfect South Ridgefield commute location to NYC, this residence offers the best of everything.
