Gorgeous, Expanded Cottage-Style Colonial In Perfect South Ridgefield Location

This picture-perfect cottage is full of charm and character, and welcomes you with classic lines and modern updates.

Expanded and completely renovated over the years, special attention has been paid to keep the original charm, yet update the home in a way that is compatible with modern living. Coved entryways, hardwood floors and true divided-light windows can be found throughout, while cozy rooms flow seamlessly from one into the other.

Every available inch of space in this home has been expertly and thoughtfully designed to function for a modern lifestyle. Entering the residence you notice the spacious living room with a large bow picture window and a classic wood-burning fireplace. This room adjoins a den, which offers access to the attached screened porch with hardwood floors and a vaulted ceiling — the perfect place to enjoy long summer evenings. A barn-style, sliding French door opens from the den through to the updated eat-in kitchen with ample cabinetry, granite and corian counters, glass tile, stainless steel appliances and a center island. The kitchen in turn opens to the family room with a gas fireplace, fieldstone surround, and built-ins. A wonderful china closet, which could also be used as a pantry, brings a splash of whimsy with a crystal chandelier. The highlight of the paneled formal dining room is the unique wet bar built into corner, while a second entry functions as a mudroom, allowing access to the garage and powder room.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom includes dormer windows, recessed lighting, a huge walk-in closet and a marble, spa-like bath. Three additional bedrooms are serviced by a white, full bath with subway tile and wainscoting, while a fourth ensuite bedroom functions as a guest suite. An upper floor laundry completes the level.

Outside, an impressive bluestone patio and stone wall culminate in a beautiful outdoor fireplace creating a wonderful conversation area. The level manicured yard enjoys mature trees and simple perennial landscaping. All this in an absolutely perfect south Ridgefield commute location for those traveling to NYC and down county.
