One of Ridgefield’s finest vintage homes, 41 Peaceable Street is the epitome of sophisticated living offering the charm of a fabulous 1920’s aristocratic residence paired with all manner of modern conveniences. Originally built for the daughter of a prominent banker, it has been expanded over the years but still harbors reclaimed or original hardwood flooring, a plethora of French doors, exquisite moldings, coffered ceilings, beautiful paneling and impressive architecture that reflects sophistication of a bygone era.
The grand entry gallery spans the length of home and is lined with French doors and windows overlooking the quaint front garden drenched in cherry trees, as well as a charming front gate. An adjoining grand “great room” features a beamed ceiling and an impressive floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, while further opening to a relaxing sunroom with views to the yard and manicured gardens beyond.
The north wing of the residence houses a distinguished library with wall-to-wall bookcases, as well as a formal dining room, kitchen, family room and office. The dining room includes a wet bar and access to the more formal butler’s pantry with custom cabinetry, a dishwasher and additional entertaining prep room. The new gourmet kitchen features quartz counters, professional appliances, a breakfast area with a bay window and an impressive center island. A spectacular vaulted family room features exposed beams, a cozy fireplace, an office and a full bath, and is surround on all sides by French doors offering views of the garden and the heated plunge pool. It also provides access to the apartment above complete with a living space, bedroom, full bath and kitchen.
The south wing of the home enjoys a spectacular master suite complete with a large sitting or retiring room with a private patio and pergola, as well as a master bedroom with a vaulted, coffered and bead board ceiling, an exceptional dressing room with additional cedar closet, and an exquisite bath with his and hers custom pedestal sinks, a deep jacuzzi tub, oversized walk-in shower and a columned entry. It truly offers a spa-like experience.
On the upper floor, three additional spacious bedrooms join two full baths plus living rooms to create independent suites.
The sweeping park-like property offers a “secret-garden” type feeling tucked away behind mature trees, multiple patios, ages old rhododendrons, and a multitude of flowering perennials. The heated plunge pool is both refreshing and therapeutic after a long day, and requires minimal upkeep.
Meticulously maintained and on town water with a generator for emergencies and irrigation for easy property care, this stunning residence offers everything today’s buyer would expect from a home of this caliber.
