Two Homes On One Spectacular, Private Parcel With Serene Views
Featuring a beautiful approach in Ridgefield’s equestrian neighborhood, this impressive property includes a grand main Colonial home with a spectacular, terraced, saltwater pool, plus a 1534 square foot, legal one-bedroom residence offering a place for in-laws, an au pair or as rental income!
The stately main residence is bright and breezy and offers a front-to-back view when entering the front door. A handsome library includes large windows on all sides along with custom built-ins, shelving and gorgeous paneling. Pocket doors provide privacy from the adjoining living room, which features floor-to-ceiling windows and a lovely fireplace with a marble surround and carved mantle. The formal dining room lets the outside in through a huge rear wall of picture windows, while connecting to the light and bright, white eat-in kitchen. The heart of the home is the spectacular, vaulted family room with exposed beams, a brick fireplace, custom built-in cabinetry and a floor-to-ceiling Palladian window with views to the nearby cottage.
The upper level of the home is open and relaxed with a huge master suite and sitting room complemented by walls of closets and a spacious marble master bath. The three additional bedrooms on this floor include large closets and have access to a private or Jack & Jill bathroom. The expansive finished lower level includes a recreation/playroom, exercise room, fifth bedroom, full bath and a large mudroom at the entry from the garage with built-in locker style wood cabinets and a bench with storage.
The gorgeous one-bedroom, shingle residence features a large living room, updated kitchen with a gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and a pantry, dining area, powder room plus a bedroom with a full bath. A private deck opens from both the bedroom and the kitchen and takes advantage of the incredible views! A laundry, mudroom, one and a half car garage and a full walk-up attic for tons of storage are other highlights. Great as an au paire or mother-in-law suite or as a legal rental.
The grounds are truly second-to-none! To say this house has a pool is doing it a disservice. The saltwater, gunite, freeform pool includes a large pool deck with multiple seating areas, a terraced dining area and outdoor fireplace, plus an outdoor kitchen with a two grills, a sink and a refrigerator. The landscaping is lush and includes impeccable evergreen property boundaries, stone walls with an incorporated pool shed, safety fencing, mature rhododendrons and hydrangeas, and all manner of cherry, maple, spruce, cedar and dogwood trees. The sweeping lawns provide a perfect place for picnics in the summer and sledding in the winter and the views go on for 50 or more miles.
This oasis is just minutes from major commuting routes down county and to NYC, as well as all manor of shopping and conveniences. Truly one-of-a-kind!
