235 Branchville Road Ridgefield, CT

Sophistication & southern grace

A grand gate welcomes you to the courtyard of this gracious Colonial on one of Ridgefield’s most desired roads. A columned portico and double glass doors open to the foyer with front to back views and a grand staircase to the upper level. Smartly controlled by an iPad, lighting, entertainment and security are a breeze.

Flanking the entryway both the formal living and dining rooms exude with a designer’s touch and flair. Incredible trim work, nine-foot ceilings and a sophisticated palette make these pristine spaces perfect for entertaining.

No expense was spared in the sensational gourmet kitchen, which wows with expansive double granite islands, plenty of crisp white cabinetry and professional appliances. The two Subzero refrigerators – each with double freezer drawers – join an oversize Wolf gas range with six burners, a grill, griddle and two 36-inch ovens. In addition, two Asko dishwashers complement a Wolf microwave, steamer and induction cooktop for more culinary prowess. And for those early mornings, a built-in Miele espresso bar with a warming drawer provides the perfect cup of coffee every time. There is also a walk-in pantry for extra storage.

A spectacular breakfast room provides views of the yard from every one of the walls of windows encompassing the vaulted room and is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed meal. The heart of the home is the neighboring central family room, which features beautiful millwork and a gas fireplace. The adjoining stunning deep blue study is a glamorous place to conduct business!

The main suite comprises a large bedroom with incredible paneling throughout and a spacious white master bath complete with a double vanity, deep soaking tub and separate shower. The spacious dressing room houses all manner of clothing and shoes, while a “secret” room over the garage currently serves as a second dressing room and could be easily finished as an office, gym or living area for the suite if so desired.

The central loft on the upper floor includes built-in shelving and a window seat for lazy days spent reading and looking out over the Juliet balcony. A guest suite includes an en suite bath, while two additional well-sized bedrooms share a hall bath.

An impressive stone patio provides ample room for entertaining with multiple seating areas and a massive stone fireplace. The incredible perennial gardens include mature evergreens and a multitude of white hydrangea lining the property. The namesake ‘boxwoods’ are also prevalent, providing structure and beauty throughout the gardens. Finally, a sensational mudroom and laundry room easily handle the daily routine, a three-car garage provides direct access to the house, and being generator-ready provides peace of mind.
