Stacked stone walls welcome you to this magical residence. Reflecting storybook charm, quality craftsmanship, a designer’s touch and attention to detail at every turn, this home is completely centered on making everyday living a comfortable and welcoming experience.
Hardwood flooring flows throughout the open-concept main floor and is complimented by multiple built-ins, window seats, fireplaces and beautiful crown moldings. The sunken living room sets the stage for the transitional design with an updated gas fireplace flanked by built-in cabinetry and a large picture window allowing in ample natural light. The family room with a wet bar echoes the design and flows seamlessly through two sets of French doors into the four-season sunroom. Currently used as on office, this space would function equally well as a fabulous playroom, or yoga or artists studio as well. The well-positioned dining room offers access to the remodeled kitchen and park-like grounds beyond. While many homes claim to have a ‘chefs’ kitchen, this one truly does! The well thought out space was custom-built for a chef in conjunction with a Doyle-Coffin kitchen designer, and perfectly incorporates residential beauty with professional functionality. An oversized quartz island includes ample storage; a microwave; separate garbage and prep sink with an instant hot water tap. A Capital 8-burner gas range includes two ovens each accommodating a full or half sheet restaurant-size baking pan. The full-size SubZero refrigerator, as well as a pull out spice cabinet; soft close drawers, shelves and doors; two pantries; a recessed built-in desk and a dining area mean this space is truly where everyone gathers to enjoy life. One full and one half bath, a spacious laundry and mudroom area, and front and back staircases round out the floor.
Upstairs, the master suite enjoys a separate wing and includes renovated His and Hers baths, a large bedroom with a tray ceiling and a spacious walk-in closet. Both baths feature radiant-heated and uniquely tiled marble floors, a closet, and a quartz vanity with His bath including an oversized shower with multiple shower heads and Hers a deep, stand-alone soaking tub. Kohler fixtures and top-quality materials make the master suite a haven for relaxation. Three additional bedrooms and two additional fully renovated baths with equally high-end design trends complete the floor. Attic access is either through pull down stairs or as a walk-in storage room off the upper level.
The lower level recreation room is flooded in natural light via French door sliders and large windows, with unique sliding glass doors separating the exercise room from the rest of the space. A half bath and pool changing room make access to the pool functional and easy, while a workroom and plenty of storage join central AC, a whole house generator, and new well equipment to provide peace of mind.
Outside, a bucolic brook, large flagstone patio, free-form Gunite pool and spa, and professionally landscaped yard offer a feeling of unsurpassed serenity. A grandfathered-in, detached barn also provides a third garage space and additional storage. The sublime privacy resulting from the natural stone outcroppings plus myriad mature trees make this the ultimate private getaway.
Close to the New York border for an easy commute to Manhattan, the home is still only minutes to the center of Ridgefield – Connecticut’s #1 small town! Enjoy all the community has to offer including top-ranked schools, a vibrant Main Street, boutiques and shopping, 5-star restaurants, fitness and yoga studios, The Prospector Movie Theatre, world-class library, and multiple cultural amenities such as galleries and live theatre.
