Custom-Built Colonial On Fabulous In-Town Cul-De-Sac
This custom-built residence by Sturges Brothers sits peacefully at the end of a sought-after, in-town cul-de-sac and offers all the conveniences for a modern lifestyle. Hardwood floors, new carpet, wainscot paneling, beautiful lighting and quality workmanship abound to create a comfortable place to call home.
The open floor plan flows seamlessly from one room to another utilizing the architecture to create separate spaces. The front-to-back living / dining room combination features a beautiful wood-burning fireplace and French doors to the expansive bluestone patio at rear. A large number of divided-light windows also bring the outside in and create a warm, welcoming space.
Adjoining this room, the wonderfully renovated designer kitchen includes a unique marble island with room to seat four, plus professional stainless steel DCS appliances, which would please even the most discerning chef. Stainless steel and frosted glass accent cabinets add a modern twist, and the combination of cherry wood and white cabinetry complements the transitional design aesthetic. A huge picture window over the farmhouse sink offers a view of the natural woodland beyond and creates a wonderful backdrop for daily chores. Next to the kitchen, a small office area flows into the breakfast room and pantry, while a more formal study is accessed through a set of pocket doors creating privacy. The attached sunken great room includes a soaring vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, surround sound and a built-in media center. French doors again offer access to the rear patio from this room.
Completing the level an updated powder room joins a mudroom offering access to the attached two-car garage, as well providing multiple closets and a laundry area with storage. Up a short flight of stairs from the mudroom, a guest room sits privately nestled over the garage and includes a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a private bath. Additional skylights allow in ample light.
Upstairs in the main part of the house, the master bedroom includes architectural ceilings, a huge walk-in closet and dressing area, and a spa-like marble bath with a deep jetted soaking tub, oversized walk-in shower, and a beautiful white vanity. The additional two bedrooms on this floor include built-ins and large closets with closet organizers. The hall bath features a large frameless glass shower and a modern vanity.
The finished lower level includes a playroom or office space with built-in shelving and cabinetry, as well as a recreation room, which would function perfectly as a media or games room. Ample storage is also found here.
Outside, the spacious rear patio includes multiple opportunities for lounging and grilling, or even incorporating a fire pit if you so desire. The wooded land behind the home joins a seasonal brook running through the property, and the location is second-to-none as you can walk to everything Ridgefield has to offer including cultural events, seasonal parades, 5-star restaurants, shopping and all manner of entertainment!
