Fabulous Flow For Entertaining
Although built in 1986, this home was completely renovated in 2006 by premier artisan builder, Larry Leary and now features multiple patios, a wonderful pool, cabana and an expanded footprint. Majestically sited on a ridge high above one of Ridgefield’s most prestigious neighborhoods, the property has been meticulously maintained. Entering the home, the main level reflects a mixture of refined elegance and casual living. The gracious foyer and central staircase are enhanced by the stately formal living room boasting opulent sconces, crown moldings, picture frame wood paneling, a fireplace with marble surround, and a French door walk-out to the expansive slate patio beyond. The formal dining room is beautifully appointed with a crystal teardrop pendant chandelier, crisp paneling, substantial decorative crown moldings and large divided light windows, while the mahogany library features a fireplace and exquisite built-in cabinetry flanking beautiful windows that command a wonderful view of the garden beyond. An incredible great room combines elegance with effortless entertaining. A wet bar with marble countertop, bar fridge and custom cabinetry offsets the extensive built-in media center. The wood-burning, stone fireplace serves as the focal point for the room, while the space is delineated by beautiful spindle railings, elegant detailing, paneling and coffered ceilings. Two sets of French doors open to the expansive slate patios beyond, creating a wonderfully light and bright atmosphere. Adjoining the family room, the eat-in Chef’s Kitchen spares no expense with top of the line appliances, a large island and beautiful, marble-inlay countertops. A decorative tumbled marble backsplash highlights the Dacor 6-burner gas cooktop, double under-counter mounted sinks, double convection ovens, Sub Zero refrigerator with freezer drawer, built-in microwave and Fisher & Paykel double drawer dishwasher.
The upper level of the home features an expansive master suite complete with fireplace and a wonderful sitting area/office featuring a wet bar, media center and built-ins. The master bath can be found off a separate corridor and includes magnificent marble flooring and tub surround, Jacuzzi soaking tub, glass walled shower with dual shower heads, double custom vanities, built-in cabinetry and two linen closets. At the other end of the corridor, two closets including a large walk-in with a dressing area can be found. The four, additional, generously sized bedrooms are either en suite, or share a Jack and Jill bathroom. A well-sized laundry room, walk up attic, and back stair to the kitchen complete the floor.
