Move Right In To This Exceptionally Sophisticated Colonial
Approaching the entry to this stately residence, which was custom- built for the owners by Heritage Homes and architect Jeff Mose, the slate front porch welcomes you with graceful columns, a mahogany ceiling and two magnificent eight-foot high, mahogany and glass doors. Upon entering, the two-story foyer is awash in natural light with multiple divided-light windows, neutral travertine flooring and a transitional color palette. Recently painted throughout and filled with luxury detailing including beautiful crown and foot molding, wainscot paneling and an open floor plan for entertaining, this designer’s own home is perfectly balanced in symmetrical simplicity.
The foyer highlights the molded limestone fireplace centrally located in the family room and flanked by two sets of French doors leading to the rear deck. The formal dining room includes a tray ceiling and opens to the recently renovated chef’s kitchen featuring sparkling white cabinetry, professional stainless steel appliances, and a large island and breakfast bar, which comfortably seats four. The adjoining breakfast room overlooks the yard through a large bay window, and the rooms flow seamlessly from one space to another. A fabulous mudroom incorporates a powder room, large pantry and additional closet, and offers access to the three-car garage.
Continuing on the main level, a front-to-back living room features a gas fireplace and multiple 12 over 12 divided-light windows, culminating in French doors that open to a spacious office with built- in cabinetry and a bay window overlooking the serene gardens. The elevation of the home and the proximity of the mature trees makes you feel like you are floating in a rooftop treehouse as you work. A second back hall foyer powder room completes the floor.
Accessed via either a front or rear staircase, the upper level offers a serene master suite in which to retire after a long day. The tray ceiling adds height, while a whimsical chandelier and a gas fireplace create ambiance. The walk-in closet and dressing room are conveniently located off the bedroom, and are attached to the master bath. Travertine tiles, a walk-in glass shower with a bench, double sinks and a makeup vanity provide ample space to start your day. Tucked into another bay window is a deep, jetted soaking tub overlooking the yard. A private commode and linen closet complete the space.
On the north end of the second floor are two spacious bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill bath, each with two closets. One bedroom even includes a 10-foot bay window seat. There is also an additional large guest bedroom with an ensuite bath. Centrally located on the floor is an upper level laundry room, while the south end houses a large second floor family/billiard room creating additional space to use as is, or to possibly convert into additional bedrooms.
The walk-out lower level a roughed-in fireplace and two sets of French door sliders. There is also a walk-up attic.
A large, elevated mahogany deck provides a quiet overlook from which to enjoy the yard below. Bordering Ridgefield Open Space, the secluded and private property includes wonderful gardens and mature trees, creating a relaxing oasis. Both the front and rear elevation of the home feature decorative balconies, adding dimension to the residence and complementing the dormer windows.
In a wonderful commute location and only minutes to everything Ridgefield has to offer, this home is absolutely turn key and offers an impressive – yet comfortable – place to call home.
