Located a quick walk to town on almost two acres of pristine level land, this beautiful custom-built residence is the ultimate in comfortable luxury. A relaxing wrap-around porch envelopes the home with beadboard ceiling, slate flooring and even a porch swing. Throughout the home, the builder – Heritage Homes – added hallmarks of quality construction including exquisite moldings, fabulous cabinetry, gleaming hardwood floors and high ceilings.
Flanking the central stairway, formal living and dining rooms both enjoy fireplaces and transition to the open concept rear of the home. Overlooking the heated gunite pool and gazebo, the gourmet kitchen, breakfast room and den flow seamlessly into the adjoining family room. French doors allow for wonderful indoor/outdoor living in the warmer months, while the cozy fireplace is a joy in the cooler ones.
The beautifully designed kitchen includes ample creamy cabinetry, a large island and plenty of counter space. Professional stainless steel appliances such a Capital range with two ovens, 6 burners and grill join the SubZero refrigerator, warming drawer and a wine cooler. A butler’s pantry makes entertaining a breeze and the expansive attached mudroom and pantry offer plenty of storage.
The private office is an inspiring place to work with a view of the side yard and wrap around porch. Mahogany paneling joins built in shelving and a fireplace to create a cozy nook. Double sliding glass pocket doors allow you to work in a serene setting, but still remain a part of the action. A back staircase leads to the upper level from here as well.
The master suite resides in its own wing at the top of the central stair. The high ceilings continue throughout the second floor. A fireplace joins a tumbled marble master bath with a jacuzzi tub, large standalone shower, double vanity and makeup table, as well as a dressing room. A studio, exercise or sitting room, or additional office is also found in the suite.
The second and third floor additional four bedrooms are either ensuite or offer access to a Jack & Jill bath, and the third floor also includes a large second family room perfectly suited as an in-law or au pair apartment. The second floor contains a multi-functional recreation room.
The lower level includes a 400-bottle temperature controlled wine storage room and also features a wine tasting room. Additional finished space offers options for a gym, office or media room.
Surrounded by bluestone and complemented by a beautiful, covered patio, the heated gunite pool and spa is a little slice of heaven. Accompanied by a honeysuckle covered pergola, specimen plantings and mature trees it is the perfect segue to the level manicured lawn beyond. Offering something for everyone, this wonderful home is only an hour to Manhattan and a few minutes to the center of Ridgefield.
