Wonderful Equestrian Opportunity

Welcome to this private sanctuary offering a three-stall barn with walkouts, two paddocks, a pool and a fabulous four-bedroom home all on 6.7 private acres with a seasonal brook tucked away in the equestrian area of Ridgefield.

Opening to a two-story foyer, the home features hardwood floors throughout, beautiful moldings, and a light and breezy feel. The formal living and dining rooms shine with multiple windows offering all manner of natural light, as well as providing French doors to the adjoining kitchen and breakfast rooms. The kitchen includes a striated granite breakfast bar and counters, creamy cabinetry, GE Monogram professional stainless steel appliances including a gas 6-burner range and hood, integrated refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher, as well as an Advantium oven/microwave and wonderful views of the pool and grounds beyond. The breakfast room includes a cozy fireplace and built-ins, and opens to a vaulted screened porch with an adjacent deck, which truly functions as an outdoor living room for hours of summertime enjoyment. Off the kitchen a butler’s pantry leads to the laundry room and adjoining bonus room with a wood burning stove, plenty of built-in shelving and gorgeous views from the bay window. It is truly an idyllic space to relax after a long day. A private office is also tucked away in the rear of the main floor, while a marble powder room with wainscoting brings an elegance to the space.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom includes a sitting area with a bay window, as well as a wall-to-wall mirrored closet, plus a relaxed master bath with a vaulted ceiling, oversized glass shower, jacuzzi tub and double sinks. Three additional bedrooms and a freshly updated hall bath complete the level.

The true nature of the property comes from the spectacular and private setting. The three-stall, gambrel-roofed barn offers two birthing-size stalls plus one additional stall all with rubber matting. There is a full hayloft above, heated tack room with hot water, two walkouts and two large paddocks. Direct access to the 100 miles of North Salem Bridle Trails is available from two points on the property as well. For horse lovers, it’s an ideal location whether you choose to keep your horses at home or earn income from boarding additional horses.

In addition, the sparkling gunite, saltwater heated pool and spa features underwater lighting and a lovely flagstone coping and decking. A whimsical stepping stone path leads from the deck to the seating area where you can enjoy the views of the paddocks. The 6.7 acres is fully fenced and includes a gated entry, gazebo, and a lower shed.

Centrally located from everywhere, it is a 15-minute drive to Ridgefield center, Danbury shopping and amenities, as well the equestrian farms of North Salem and surround. Truly an incredible opportunity!
