Majestic Stone & Shingle Residence At Westchester Border

Privately nestled off a quiet Connecticut road surrounded by lush forest, this spectacular custom-built residence features the highest quality workmanship, perfectly proportioned rooms, exquisite design and an impressive attention to detail. Ten-inch wide hardwood floors flow throughout the home, which includes nine-foot ceilings, beautiful light fixtures, impressive moldings and paneling, and a wonderful flow for modern living.

The formal living room features a coffered ceiling and fireplace, and adjoins the distinguished library. Rendered in rich, dark grey, lacquered walls with custom cabinetry throughout, this room is on-trend with today’s design. A multitude of windows keep this space light and bright. The formal dining room includes a drop pendant chandelier and raised wood paneling in a transitional style, and opens directly to an elegant butler’s pantry with a top-of-the-line wine refrigerator, dishwasher, marble counters and plenty of custom cabinetry.

The heart of the home resides in the spacious kitchen, breakfast room and adjoining family room. No expense was spared in creating the gourmet, white Chef’s kitchen which includes an oversized central island with a breakfast bar, a professional Thermador wall oven and refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and impressive La Cornue 5-burner gas range with double ovens. Marble counters, expansive cabinetry, a pot filler and a farm sink complete the space. Numerous French doors offer easy access to the rear stone patio from both the breakfast and family rooms creating a true indoor/outdoor experience. The family room also includes a fieldstone hearth with a hand-hewn mantle providing an enticing space in which to retire and relax. Two powder rooms, a large mudroom, and front and back staircases round out the floor.

Upstairs, double doors open to reveal a truly one-of-a-kind master suite. An opulent sitting room includes a crystal chandelier centered over a gas fireplace mimicking the fieldstone surround found in the family room below. The bedroom seems tucked away in the trees and offers views of the surrounding woods through large divided-light windows, while two walk-in closets flank a spacious master bath with two separate vanities, a make-up table, frameless glass oversized shower with multiple shower heads, and a deep jetted whirlpool soaking tub perfectly positioned to provide views of the landscaped gardens.

The additional four bedrooms residing on this floor are ensuite, including an Au Paire or in-law wing perfectly positioned separately from the main living space. An open loft with multiple built-in cabinets and shelving enjoys two work spaces and a reading nook creating the ultimate homework area. An upper level laundry completes the floor.

The finished third level of the residence includes a half bath and a fabulous playroom with hardwood floors, plus two dormer windows and storage. The finished lower level includes an additional recreation room, games room, and exercise room along with a bedroom open to the yard, and both full and half baths.
Outside, the park-like property features 3.24 magnificent acres, expansive terracing, a bluestone semi-circular patio, outdoor fireplace, rock gardens, mature trees and an irrigation system.

In a perfect commute location to Westchester county and New York City, yet only minutes to Ridgefield town center, this home is better than new in every way!
