Welcome to part two of our three part series – Homes For The Holidays.
As an old town with a storied past, Ridgefield is graciously celebrated by its residents, many of whom lovingly live in, restore and expand many of the original antique homes, bringing them into the modern world with updated amenities and conveniences.
174 North Salem Road – otherwise known as the Samuel Olmstead House – is one such vintage gem. Offered for sale for $1,045,000, it is a stunning example of an impeccable antique residence coupled with a seamless expansion. The home exudes a feeling of whimsy and romanticism from the moment you enter. Wide board hardwood floors, iron floor grates, arched entryways, wood burning fireplaces, divided light windows and classic woodwork create a sense of character and grandness, while still providing the comforts a modern family would want such as a chef’s kitchen, updated baths, an exercise room and a fabulous pool and pool house!
Always beautifully decorated for every occasion, the owners do not disappoint with the warm and inviting feeling they created this holiday season. Playing off the monochromatic color palette of bones, creams and griege walls and furniture, the chandeliers, picture frames and fireplace mantles are adorned with evergreen garlands, strands of white lights, and red accents in the form of berries and bows. Multiple Christmas trees anchor the living spaces and roaring fires, candles and frosted wreaths complete the picture, reminding us how important it is for families to gather and simply celebrate being together.
