A Wonderful Open Floor Plan Makes This Home An Entertainers Dream
Completely rebuilt from the foundation up in 2006, this home allows you to walk to everything the village of Ridgefield has to offer. From the gleaming hardwood floors, multiple French doors, impeccable millwork and whimsical accents like the gas Coach lights adorning the entryway, it embodies everything about stylish, yet comfortable living.
A beautiful bluestone slate walkway leads to a covered porch with a timbered ceiling offering a lovely place to sit on a sunny afternoon. Entering the home, you are greeted by wainscot paneling, classic cased openings and an abundance of light through the front-to-back views. The formal dining room includes a wood-burning fireplace, a transitional-style industrial chandelier and double French doors to create a sense of intimacy. Beyond the dining room, the family room, breakfast room and kitchen form a fabulous entertaining space taking advantage of the gas fireplace to keep warm and cozy in the winter. The kitchen itself includes professional grade stainless steel appliances, a gas range, a small office area, and mixed material countertops including polished granite, leathered granite and butcher block. A wine refrigerator in the butler’s pantry and separate large walk-in pantry are additional features that create an easy-living experience. There is also a formal living room, which can be made private by closing a set of double entry doors, while an office – tucked away in the rear of the home – also offers access to the backyard patio. Two powder rooms and a separate rear-entry mudroom complete the floor.
Upstairs, a spacious master suite features two walk-in closets, as well as French door opening to a Juliette balcony overlooking the back yard. The beautiful master bath includes radiant heated floors, two separate vanities with upper and lower cabinetry, a deep soaking tub, and a steam shower with multiple shower heads. It truly makes you feel like you’re at the spa while still at home! There are three additional bedrooms on this floor including a guest bedroom with an ensuite bath, as well as a hall bath and a recreation/family room offering access to the third floor.
The third floor is perfect as an in-law or Au Paire suite providing ample room for a bedroom, as well as a living room, closet and a full bath. Walk in attic storage is also found here.
A mudroom in the lower level opens to the two-car garage and includes two large closets plus substantial custom built-in cubbies for coats, boots and bags. An exercise room and unfinished storage room complete the lower floor.
Outside, the beautifully level, in-town property features extensive stone walls, privacy fencing and professionally manicured planting beds. An invisible fence surrounds the entire property, providing a safe environment for your pets. The evergreen Hemlock screening provides year-round greenery and provides shade during the summer months. An expansive slate patio is joined by a covered porch area, as well as grill pad.
Walking distance to town via sidewalks, this home allows for the best of in-town living and includes extra features that tip the scales such as a whole house automatic generator, town water, town sewer, surround sound in almost all rooms, central vacuum and so much more. Truly a gem!
