Quintessential Connecticut Charm
This beautifully expanded and remodeled Henry Wills Cape is second to none when it comes to character and charm. Wide board hardwood floors, modern farmhouse styling, French doors, large amounts of storage, and an abundance of windows create a spacious and airy feel throughout. Paired with a stunning location on an unprecedented 1.8 gorgeous acres, the property includes underground sprinklers, professional landscaping, mature trees, multiple stone walls and terraced entertaining areas.
Lovingly updated over the years, the home itself is perfect for modern living. The large kitchen includes a central island with a warming drawer and seating, granite counters, crisp white cabinets and a vaulted cathedral ceiling. The stainless steel appliances include Wolf double wall ovens and a 5-burner gas cooktop, Subzero refrigerator, Fisher Paykel dishwasher and a wine chiller. A second prep sink accompanies additional cabinetry creating an attached butler’s pantry. The dining room is flanked by walls of windows bringing the outside patio in. The natural granite rock formations have been expertly integrated into this area and along with a stone wall, multiple perennial flowerbeds and lush lawn, the view makes it the best meal you will ever have! The adjoining vaulted family room offers access to the heated 2-car garage, and enjoys a wood burning fireplace, built-in cabinetry and is wired for hours of TV and gaming fun with cable and HDMI directly in the wall. The living room boasts the same kind of connectivity and has a second wood-burning fireplace and access to the rear patio.
Up a few stairs a well-placed office includes built-in cabinets, exposed beams, and an alcove for an easily connected wood burning stove. A hallway leads from the office to an ensuite bedroom and further to the main suite, which features custom built-in wardrobes, multiple closets, a private deck and a remodeled marble and white tile master bath with a Victoria and Albert claw foot tub. The two remaining ensuite bedrooms are found on the upper level.
The yard is a haven with long swathes of green lawn offering plenty of space for active pursuits, while the substantial chicken coops offer fresh eggs year-round. The whole rear yard is fenced for dogs and deer alike. Located on one of Ridgefield’s most prestigious roads, with a whole house generator, two sheds, close to Silver Spring Country Club and the center of the Village, plus an easy commute to NYC and all points south, this very special residence is not be missed!
