Stylish, Nantucket-Inspired Home In The Center Of Town
Located in the center of town on one of Ridgefield’s most impressive and recognizable streets, this gorgeous Colonial residence is the definition of elegance. From the columned, wrap-around porch, to the perfect scale of the rooms, nine-foot ceilings, exquisite millwork and park-like, private pool and yard, the home is a sublime haven of relaxation. A few minutes on the sidewalk leads you to the center of the Village and all it has to offer including cultural amenities like the Prospector Theatre, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, ACT of CT, the community dog park, state-of-the-art library and the Winter Garden ice rink, as well as five star restaurants, boutique shopping, spas, fitness centers and yoga studios, ball fields, and schools. It is also in an ideal location for commuting to Manhattan with the Katonah Train Station shuttle stopping only steps away.
A raw flagstone path leads to the expansive, mahogany front porch perfect for chatting with passers-by while enjoying a morning coffee or evening cocktail. Entering the home you are welcomed by a spacious foyer leading into the formal living room complete with a marble fireplace and French doors to the side of the deck. A generous cased opening leads to the dining room with custom glass cabinetry, and French doors overlooking the pool and gardens. The adjoining, newly renovated, gourmet chef’s kitchen is as practical as it is beautiful with an impressive quartz center island, SubZero refrigerator/freezer, Viking 6-burner gas range and a Miele dishwasher, microwave and additional wall oven. The custom white cabinetry is fresh and on-trend with an elegant shaker-style design. Together with a spacious breakfast room and a family room anchored by a fieldstone fireplace, this is truly the heart of the home and offers a floorplan designed for entertaining to the highest level. Walls of windows and multiple French doors allow the outside in, lending a bright and breezy aesthetic. A separate guest room with en suite is also found on the main level, in addition to a half bath and a large pantry.
The private spaces in the home are equally impressive with the upstairs, vaulted master suite framed by a rear wall of windows, multiple closets and a truly spa-like bath including a marble double vanity; oversized, tumbled marble glass shower; and a deep jacuzzi tub. A designer’s touch is highlighted in the four additional bedrooms, with each pair of rooms joined by a Jack & Jill bath. A large office/den completes the second level.
The third level consists of an unbelievably light and bright bonus room perfect as a playroom, artist’s studio or exercise room with dormer windows, a vaulted ceiling and beautiful views of the yard. The finished lower level functions perfectly as a pool house providing a media area with a gas fireplace, half bath and a kitchenette with a copper sink, full-size refrigerator and an ice maker. Wainscot paneling, practical tile flooring, and loads of storage in the spacious mudroom with cubbies and oversized closets ensures all bases are covered for a great summer of swimming and entertaining!
The location of the home is already second-to-none, and the yard and outdoor spaces only add to the appeal! Multiple seating areas abound on the wrap-around porch, which is complemented by the flagstone patio and coping around the in-ground pool, and a bluestone pergola perfect for grilling. The level yard provides for hours of enjoyment and specimen plantings, evergreen screening and professionally maintained planting beds add color and privacy.
