Hilltop – one of Ridgefield’s most beautiful mini estates
This spectacular stone and clapboard Colonial home was built by RJR Builders and encompasses all that fine living has to offer. In perfect scale and harmony with the outside landscape, it is a masterpiece of modern design with a classic touch.
Upon entering, the spacious foyer offers front to back views to the colonnaded and heated covered bluestone patio. Soaring and coffered ceilings, hardwood floors with inlays, incredible marble fireplaces, and impressive millwork immediately convey the attention paid to detail in the home.
The formal living and dining rooms both include beautiful fireplaces with intricate mantles and are perfectly proportioned. A four-season sunroom stuns with floor to ceiling casement windows, built-in cabinetry and impressive views of the woodlands beyond, while the adjoining library is accessed through French pocket doors. Ribbon mahogany woodwork and paneling accompanies a cozy gas fireplace, coffered ceiling and a wet bar to create the perfect work from home environment.
The kitchen and breakfast room, plus an adjoining family room, take advantage of the covered heated patio to create the ultimate indoor-outdoor experience. Dine in the spacious breakfast room, or al fresco depending on the season! The family room includes a beautiful coffered ceiling, walls of French doors to an outdoor sitting area, and impressive built-ins surrounding a fabulous stone fireplace. The kitchen itself features top-of-the line stainless steel appliances plus a butler’s pantry, plenty of cabinetry, and a spectacular walk-in pantry.
Upstairs, French doors welcome you to the sitting room of the master suite complete with a mini-fridge and a cozy fireplace. The exquisite tray ceiling features intricate millwork and the exceptional boutique-style His & Hers dressing rooms include a center island, cabinetry and shoe storage. A luxurious marble and mahogany wood bath features a soaking tub, His and Hers vanities and an oversized steam shower. All other bedrooms are ensuite.
Th spectacular great room includes a kitchenette, sitting area and additional half bath. Punctuated by a most impressive cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, built-in cabinetry, designer lighting and architectural highlights, this room is built over the Porte cochere, which – with the other garages – allows for the housing of six cars.
The finished third floor rooms and entertaining area offer a perfect flex space for all work from home needs, while the full finished basement includes an additional suite, recreation area and full gym.
The property itself is simply magnificent from the stone courtyard, to the rolling green lawns, exquisite views, terraces, stone walls and off course the grand, resort-like gunite swimming pool. A cascading waterfall from the raised spa provides a relaxing backdrop while lounging on one of the many terraces or sitting by the fire in the pool house pavilion. The pool house itself includes a full kitchen, changing room, full bath and a living area plus a second floor loft to create a second self-contained residence. An outdoor kitchen also provides additional summer fun. Fully fenced with mature trees and second-to-none landscape design, there is no place to sit in which your eye isn’t drawn to one feature or another. Truly one of kind.
