Wonderful Presence In South Ridgefield

This welcoming Colonial home is at once refined with an impressive attention to materials and detail, yet relaxed with an open floorplan and great functionality for a modern lifestyle. Double glass doors open to a soaring foyer with front-to-back views of the fire pit, while hardwood floors flow from room to room perfectly complementing the copious use of natural woods, stone, tiles and color throughout.

The modern floorplan includes a living room with large windows and a wood burning fireplace, which sits directly opposite the formal dining room, also with a wood burning fireplace. A mudroom offers easy entry to the two-car garage and a powder room is conveniently located centrally to all rooms.

The custom designed kitchen includes gorgeous Walnut wood cabinetry and features sleek stainless steel pulls. Stemware cabinetry, oversized drawers, spice cupboards and up-lit feature cabinetry join professional appliances including a Viking 6-burner gas range and oven, side-by-side SubZero refrigerator/freezer and two Bosch dishwashers . There is even a full size SubZero wine chiller, so you’ll never run out of beverages when entertaining. The spectacular Macaubus quartzite island is prefect for casual fare, while the adjoining breakfast room and vaulted family room are surrounded on all sides by French sliding doors offering an abundance of natural light and multiple opportunities to view the picture-perfect yard beyond.

The master suite is located part way between the upper and main floors and is tucked away as its own suite. Complete with his and hers walk-in closets and a beautiful custom designed spa-like master bath, you can easily spend hours on the private balcony enjoying a beverage while overlooking the pool. The three additional large bedrooms are all ensuite with equally beautifully updated full baths.

The above ground, walk out lower level is a highly flexible space, perfect as a nanny suite or set up as a home office. Light and bright with a living area, bedroom or office, and a full bath, it could easily be an artists studio or gym as well. There is also an additionally insulated and carpeted bonus room over the garage for a music studio or recreation room.

The beautiful park like property allows for hours and hours of entertainment year round. The sparkling pool perfectly complements the custom semi-circular firepit and large bluestone patio capable of hosting large gatherings or for quieter evenings at home. With multiple seating areas – and being fully fenced – the wide swathes of manicured lawn allow for hours of worry free fun for children and pets. And if the power goes out, a huge 48kW generator can power both houses for two weeks!

A separate 1,400 square foot guest house provides the perfect place for friends and family with a gourmet kitchen, full bath, laundry, living room, bedroom and lofted sitting area. Ideal for a private home business, it could also be converted into a spectacular pool house with multiple games and living rooms offering year-round enjoyment. A propane furnace, tankless hot water heater and multiple other upgrades make this guest house not only beautiful, but also energy efficient.
