36 Abbott Avenue Ridgefield, CT

Charming Vintage Gem In The Center Of Town

Fabulous Abbott Ave is the setting for this charming residence. Originally located on Main Street and moved to its current location in 1880, the beautifully restored c1770 home features hardwoods throughout, exposed beams, lovely paneling, a wonderfully updated kitchen, on-trend baths, large rooms, and even a mudroom. With over $100,000 in upgrades since 2015, the home is fully fenced, on town water and sewer, and mere steps to everything the Village has to offer including world class entertainment, five star restaurants, parks, playgrounds, boutique shopping, cultural amenities and best-in-class schools.

Entering through a picket fence the front door opens to a light and bright foyer granting access to both a cozy den with built-in shelving, as well as a living room with a charming wood-burning fireplace and wood mantle. Adjoining both of these rooms is the spacious central dining room with built-in cabinetry, exposed beams and large windows offering views of the quaint outdoors. A family room with custom cabinets extends from this room as well. The vaulted kitchen includes skylights for a bright and airy feeling along with multiple large windows looking out over the covered porch. The kitchen includes granite counters, multiple pantries, gleaming white cabinets and stainless appliances including a four burner gas range, built-in microwave, large refrigerator, dishwasher and range hood. The laundry and mudroom with oversized cubbies and shoe storage adjoins the kitchen, while a full bath with radiant floor heat, a deep Koehler tub and shower, white subway tile with glass tile accents, and a skylight completes the level.

Upstairs, four spacious bedrooms are accessed by a friendship staircase and offer large closets, original charm and access to a second full bath with a walk-in shower, pedestal sink and commode. The third floor bonus room makes a great playroom, office, or exercise studio and is a joy to be in with high ceilings, post and beam exposed woodwork and plenty of additional storage!

The fabulous in-town yard includes a covered porch complete with a porch swing and seating area, as well as a large side terrace, grill area, perennial plantings and a level yard. A detached two-car garage sits nestled behind the home and is accessed by a paved drive with a Belgian block perimeter. A full basement with a poured concrete floor provides additional storage.
