The perfect in-town location affords this Colonial beauty a place of honor on desirable King Lane. Walk to everything Ridgefield has to offer while enjoying the seclusion of this picture-perfect estate property. With classic Larry Leary trim design, and an expansion by New Canaan architect James Schettino, the house invokes a character and charm way beyond its years.
The floorplan provides wonderful sight lines throughout the home from the minute you enter. A large living room includes a cozy fireplace for evenings spent watching the snow fall over the perfectly manicured gardens or on the expansive front lawn. The dining room flows through to the expansive family room with a vaulted ceiling, library-style bookcases and a classic fireplace.
A very spacious kitchen takes advantage of the French doors on either side for easy access to the spectacular yard. A wall of divided light windows graces the rear of the home and makes for the perfect place to take in a morning coffee. Or for the more adventurous, take a stroll out to the gazebo nestled in among the beautiful perennial gardens and landscape features of the Rosedale garden design.
The peaceful master suite features a bonus den/sitting area where enjoying a nightcap or book before retiring for the day seems to be in order. A spacious bedroom, multiple closets including a walk-in and a fabulous marble master bath with radiant heated floors, a double vanity, deep soaking tub and a beautiful oversized shower complete the suite. The two additional bedrooms on the floor share a second, wonderfully updated marble bath. The third floor includes yet another bedroom, plus a home office and rec room space.
A separate suite of rooms is the perfect set up for a nanny, guest or in-law suite with a full bath, living space and lofted bedroom. The lower level includes a half bath plus a huge finished recreation/play room that can easily accommodate a gym or second family room.
The presence of a private sanctuary and garden is surprising given the proximity of the home to Main Street. Impeccable landscaping, a gazebo, manicured lawns and copious bluestone patios with seating benches, stone walls and mature trees truly create a modern oasis. There is also a designated site for a sparkling pool and spa if one so desires.
