If living in a very safe, estate neighborhood at the end of a cul-de-sac with one of the best commuting locations in Ridgefield to 684 and Metro North is important to you, then this home is a “must see.”
Custom built by Sturges Brothers for the present owners, this home exudes charm and sophistication. Sited on 1.89 gorgeous acres, the pristine residence is located only a mile from the NY border and is short walk to Ridgefield Academy. The spectacular home features attention to detail befitting its best-in-class construction and quality interior appointments. You will especially appreciate the expansive rooms with 9 foot ceilings on all three levels, custom cabinetry and built-ins, four fireplaces, crown moldings and paneling, elevated wood deck, inlaid oak hardwood floors, inlaid marble floors, a lower level theatre and game room, French doors, oversized windows and a beautiful, heated, Gunite in-ground pool with spa and waterfall. It is truly a haven for you and your family to relax and enjoy.
Entering the home you are greeted by a cathedral foyer with a wide, spiral, spindle staircase. To either side of this classic center hall Colonial are the elegant formal living room and dining room replete with raised panel walls. Walking through to the back of the house, you will find an expansive kitchen featuring custom crafted, cherry cabinets highlighted by granite countertops with tumbled marble backsplashes. The granite-topped, center-island and breakfast bar perfectly complement the large, adjoining breakfast area, which also provides access to the expansive rear deck overlooking the pool and yard. The kitchen’s professional appliances include an Asko dishwasher, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Viking commercial stove and range, custom vent hood, GE microwave, and a second Thermador oven. The side wet bar features a U-line wine cooler and icemaker. Adjoining the kitchen is a large great room with a cathedral ceiling and floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace. Completing the main level is a large playroom, a spacious office with half bath, and two additional powder rooms.
Accessing the upper level via either the front or rear staircases, you will find five oversized bedrooms featuring high ceilings, hardwood floors, adjoining ensuite and/or Jack & Jill style baths, all enjoying an inpouring of natural light. The private master wing features a large bedroom with a marble fireplace, built-in closets and a sumptuous bath with an inlaid marble tile floor, double cherry vanity with marble top and mirrored backsplash, Kohler sinks, spa with marble surround, and an oversized glass and marble shower.
The lower level is truly unique. 15 windows provide ample natural light creating a main level ambiance, while two sets of French doors lead to the expansive yard featuring perennial gardens, a large kidney-shaped pool flanked by beautiful, elevated stone walls, and a large spa that overflows into the pool via a stunning waterfall. You will enjoy a modern, cabana-like bath with a large shower, a fifteen-foot long granite bar with full size refrigerator, and an entertaining area with a game room, home theatre, gym and living/family room with a brick fireplace.
Additional appointments include high-end moldings, raised panels, custom built-ins and window treatments, arched entryways, extensive recessed lighting, a central stereo and speaker system, central vacuum, in-ground sprinkler system, fire and burglar alarm system, three-car garage, and a full walk-up attic.
