Fabulous 25 Mile Views Are The Hallmark Of This Gracious Property
Beautiful stone & shingle architecture perfectly balances the glory of nature visible from the vistas of this magnificent mini-estate. Nestled on 3.5 pristine acres high on a ridge in the north Ridgefield Equestrian enclave, the residence features perfect scale and flow, and is absolutely turn-key.
Attention To Detail
Originally built in 1935, the home was featured in the Dupont Registry of Fine Homes, and the recent renovation and expansion supports the quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail of the original. Located on one of Ridgefield’s most desirable properties, this handsome four bedroom residence features Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout, exquisite custom millwork, fabulous moldings, and rooms that are perfectly scaled to feel intimate, although they are actually quite grand in stature.

Perfectly designed to make cooking and entertaining effortless, the kitchen adjoins a large breakfast nook and opens to the vaulted family room with a beautiful wood burning fireplace and captivating views of the paddocks and hills beyond. A renovated butler’s pantry with a beverage fridge, ice maker and wet bar perfectly complements the formal dining room, which walks out through French doors to a private bluestone slate patio. The living room features a second fireplace and massive windows and doors from which to enjoy the easterly views encompassing horse properties and 44 acres of conservation land. A guest suite with an ensuite bath, large mudroom, and elegant powder room complete the main floor.
Elegant, Yet Comfortable Spaces
