Enchanting Stone & Cedar Residence In Picture-Perfect Setting
Architecturally designed to compliment the historic Mill House across Miller’s Pond, this unique, custom-built residence is perfectly sited to take advantage of the bucolic setting.
From the pebbled driveway with mature trees to the use of cedar clapboard, shakes and indigenous stone it is clear this is a unique Ridgefield residence.
The entry foyer opens to a light-filled dining room, and opens to a practical butler’s pantry. The adjoining kitchen includes a breakfast bar, pecan cabinetry and great flow for the most discerning chef. The breakfast room offers spectacular views of the 4-acre pond and magnificent gardens, while the great room includes 10-foot ceilings and an impressive floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace. The oversized, screened porch with a timbered ceiling and rustic stone floor lives like an outdoor living and dining room and is connected to the great room by sliding French doors. Together these rooms create a wonderful entertaining space large enough for a grand party, or comfortable and intimate enough for a small family gathering. The living room/library features a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, bar unit and custom Cherry cabinets, and is overlooked by the upper level study that adjoins the master suite. A powder room and laundry complete the floor.
The upper level master suite presents with an unbelievable “wow” factor including vaulted ceilings in both the bedroom and master bath and offering access to a mahogany private deck with incredible views of the pool, yard, pond and guest cottage. The three remaining bedrooms include built-in desks and share two full baths.
The second floor guest suite has its own private entrance, while an expansive lower level includes a wall of glass opening to the gardens and the hot tub. It features a gym, media and games rooms, a half bath, wine cellar, craft room and a separate shower/dressing room. With views of the pond, and finishes reminiscent of the rest of the home, this is true living space.
The professionally landscaped grounds are surrounded by mature trees, manicured lawn, perennial plantings and dry-stacked stonewalls. The 4-acre pond is fed by the Norwalk River and stocked with trout yearly. Not to be outdone, the Gunite saltwater pool and dressing room overlook the picture-perfect one bedroom guest cottage, which includes a kitchenette, full bath, walk-in shower, and a sauna.
With so much to offer, this residence and property live like a year round vacation!
