Nantucket-Style Gem Welcomes You Home

Located in commuter friendly South Ridgefield, this custom-designed and built residence is just minutes to everything downtown Ridgefield has to offer. Backing up to 11 acres of open space and just seconds to Silver Spring Country Club, it offers a quiet respite at the end of the day. And if entertaining is more your style, you it offers the perfect flow and space to host all manner of gatherings in any season.

The sprawling, wrap-around mahogany front porch – accessible from every room situated at the front of the home — welcomes you in, while the limestone and tumbled marble tile in the foyer complements the arched entryways, beautiful crown moldings and gleaming hardwoods that flow through the entire home. The center stair in the foyer leads to an upper level interior balcony, while the main level is designed for comfortable living.

A gracious, formal dining room flows seamlessly into the newly renovated chef’s white kitchen featuring a huge 6-foot by 9-foot Carrera Marble island and breakfast bar, professional appliances, plenty of counter space and cabinetry, and a breakfast room with a transitional chandelier. The light and airy game room includes a double-sided flagstone fireplace, which connects it to the light-filled family room with space for a media area and even a piano. Grecian columns, exposed beams, French doors and walls of windows are front and center, creating a perfect indoor/outdoor flow. An additional formal living room walks out to both the front porch and the rear patio, while an adjoining billiard room with a wet bar and multiple French doors provides a great space to relax and hang out.

The upper level is accessed by both front and rear staircases and includes a master wing with a spacious suite and sitting area with a fireplace, wine bar and two balconies. His & Hers walk-in closets open to an impressive bath with an oversized, frameless glass steam shower, Jacuzzi tub and double vanity surrounded in tumbled marble. Four additional spacious bedrooms access newly renovated and updated baths, while a dedicated office, laundry, and an upper level rec room – perfect as a guest or au paire suite with its own separate entrance- complete the level.

On the third floor, skylights, palladian windows, built-ins and multiple alcoves make this expansive bright space the perfect area to create a media room, playroom or office. Attic storage completes this floor. The finished lower level includes a home gym, full bath, sauna and wine room.

Outdoors, a flagstone deck surrounds the heated freeform Gunite pool and spa. The pool is complemented by a quaint, cedar shake pool house with a kitchenette, dressing room, extra storage, and a full bath with a private outdoor shower area, great for a quick rinse!
