Driving up to this oasis in north Ridgefield you immediately realize you are somewhere special. Set high atop a ridge and tucked away from the world- yet still only minutes from major local shopping and restaurants- this spectacular six bedroom estate home offers plenty of space for entertaining, while remaining intimate in both form and function.
Impressive Brazilian cherry hardwood floors flow effortlessly throughout all levels complementing the windowed transoms, numerous French doors, coffered ceilings and impeccable trim work. The main floor offers front-to-back views of the natural granite rock outcropping made truly spectacular with multiple waterfalls, gorgeous gardens, a gunite pool and accompanying raised spa. Designed by renowned landscape architect, Craig Studer, it is surrounded by bluestone patios offering multiple locations for the best in indoor/outdoor entertaining.
Offering spacious rooms throughout, the adaptable floorplan includes multiple options for home offices as well as a dedicated study with a separate entrance to the yard. The chef’s kitchen includes professional Viking and Bosch appliances as well as a large island with seating, while the adjoining mudroom features multiple pantries and closets. French doors open to the breakfast room and spacious family room where the sound of running water can be enjoyed in the warmer months, or cozied up to with a wood burning fire in the colder ones.
The master suite is nothing short of incredible with a huge private deck, cedar closet, onyx bath and spectacular dressing room with wall-to-wall mahogany closets. There is even a coffee bar with a small fridge and sink tucked into the corner cabinet! The four other spacious bedrooms on this floor are all ensuite.
A house of this caliber would not be complete without an au pair or in-law suite. There are two options here on either the second or third floors and both offer a spacious living area, bedroom and full bath. If a suite is not necessary, the third floor also currently functions as a media room. The lower level includes a sauna and is the perfect place for a home gym.
If privacy is what you’re looking for, you won’t be disappointed. But for those times when socializing is a top priority, the center of Ridgefield is a short drive away. There are also the many restaurant and shopping options on Mill Plain Road and in greater Danbury. And don’t forget, vibrant New York City is just over an hour away by car or train. With improvements totaling $3-million in value, this house cannot be reproduced for this price.
