Spectacular Post & Beam Construction in Park Like Setting
Situated on two park-like acres on a scenic road across from Ridgefield’s premier community-supported working farm, The Hickories, this pristine home embodies Connecticut beauty at its best.
Stunning First Impressions
This beautiful expanded Colonial Cape exudes spectacular curb appeal stemming from the wonderfully landscaped front yard, circular gravel drive, and quintessential New England style, complete with American flag located over the front entryway. With amazing views, the residence is conveniently located in south Ridgefield. Close to shopping, recreation, and restaurants, this beautiful home is just minutes to the Village.
A Floor Plan For Entertaining
A fieldstone path leads to the front door, which opens to a welcoming living room revealing the unique post-and-beam construction and hardwood floors that are carried throughout the residence. The living room features a brick, wood-burning fireplace, while the adjoining dining room enjoys a large picture window with views of the spectacular yard. French doors off the dining room lead to the slate screened porch with vaulted ceiling, which serves as a wonderful living space during the warmer months.
Walking from the dining room to the modern kitchen, the room’s vaulted ceiling opens to a loft sitting area with skylights, which continues to make the home feel light and inviting. The kitchen is wonderfully updated with cream-colored cabinets, Costa Esmeralda granite countertops and backsplash, a Dacor gas cook-top, Miele dishwasher, and professional double ovens. The adjoining breakfast room is beautifully open with a wall of windows overlooking the expansive and jaw-dropping lawn, professionally landscaped with period plants by Patty Hoyt. The family room off the kitchen has a wood-burning stove, skylight, and window seat, completing the social “great room” area of the home. An incredible, custom-built library amazes with Cherrywood cabinetry, a gorgeous fireplace with granite surround, and walls of built-in shelving and cabinetry. French doors open from the library to a private slate patio. A powder room, laundry room with full bath, and additional office/study space round out the ground floor.
Fantastic Upper Level
A recently completed addition over the garage adds a large playroom with Palladian windows and skylights, along with an additional private guest room. The carpeted, upstairs hall and bedrooms have extra high vaulted ceilings with skylights and ceiling fans. The master suite features a carpeted walk-in closet and dressing area with built-in cabinetry, including six cedar closets. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and hardwood floors make the room feel comfortable. The stunning master bath features a large shower, elevated soaking tub, and separate water closet. A double vanity with a marble countertop accentuates the modern architectural detailing throughout.
The heated and air-conditioned lower level is currently partially finished space and is clean and dry. Used for storage and a workshop, the walk-out basement with direct access to the garage could easily be finished to provide additional living space.
