Spectacular character-filled Colonial with guest house and pool

This circa 1928 in-town masterpiece is a lesson in timeless architecture and sophisticated living. Surrounded by “Green Giant” evergreens and blossoming rhododendrons the impressive gated Colonial sparkles with white cedar shingles, slate and metal roofs, and sea green shutters. Eliciting a Hamptons-cottage feel, you are immediately at ease in the open floorplan and creamy design palette.

With nine-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and extensive molding and trim work, the attention to detail in the home is second-to-none. The main living room includes a wood burning fireplace and library nook, and connects to the bright and breezy sunroom complete with a private covered deck overlooking the pool and yard, and accessed via French doors.

Comprised of showcase cabinetry, walls of French doors and a private patio, the dining room offers both formal and al fresco dining with the same ease. Connecting through a mudroom, the renovated kitchen is a modern chef’s masterpiece with a huge honed quartz island with seating for five, plenty of cabinetry, professional Thermador and Viking appliances, and views from every angle.

The family room includes an incredible coffered ceiling, leaded glass accent windows, and French doors to the level yard with a play set and pool, as well as a pergola covered slate patio. Built-in bow window seating flanked by custom cabinetry is the perfect place to relax with a good book. An elegant half bath is also located here servicing the main floor and the pool.

Accessed by both front and rear staircases, the main suite comprises a perfectly proportioned bedroom, walkthrough linen closet to a full bath with marble tile floors, walls and counters, an oversized shower with multiple shower heads and river rock flooring, and a deep Kohler soaking tub overlooking the yard.

A gentle arched entry provides access to the vaulted dressing room with built-in drawers and cubbies, a central dresser, plenty of hanging space and French doors to a private balcony.

Two additional gracious bedrooms complete the second floor each boasting beautifully renovated full baths. The third floor is a perfect in-law or nanny suite with a study/living room, full bath and separate bedroom.

The lower level includes an office space, laundry and room for a gym or art studio. If a separate space is preferred, the suite of rooms over the two-car garage includes a vaulted great room, full bath and bedroom, as well as a main level gardening room perfect for adaptation to a kitchenette.

Surrounded by multiple patios, balconies & pergolas throughout, the level property offers the opportunity for true indoor/outdoor living. The heated gunite pool is private and encompassed by walls of Green Giant, fast-growing evergreens. The property also features organic garden beds, a playset, fountain, firepit and barn/shed. With a whole house generator, Smart thermostats and lighting, an updated furnace and more improvements than can be listed, the residence is in the best location for the commute to NYC, as well as perfectly situated to walk to everything Ridgefield has to offer including acclaimed restaurants, boutique shopping, the Prospector movie theatre, art galleries and more.
