Gorgeous Updated Colonial in Desirable South Ridgefield
Sited on over two, wonderfully level acres off Silver Spring Road, this beautifully updated residence captures by Larry Leary includes high-end design with incredible millwork, perfect paneling, gleaming hardwood floors, custom built-ins and fireplaces, and a serene paint palette.
The open foyer leads into a living room with multiple divided-light windows, French doors, and a marble and custom mantled fireplace, while a formal dining room with picture frame paneling is accessed in the other direction. Both rooms open to the kitchen, breakfast and family rooms, which form the heart of this comfortable home. Designed for convenience and open-concept living, the beautifully renovated white kitchen includes spectacular grey granite counters, a breakfast bar, a center island and expansive cabinetry. Professional stainless steel appliances include Dacor double ovens, an integrated SubZero refrigerator/freezer, integrated Bosch dishwasher and a Wolf 6-burner gas cooktop.
Adjoining the kitchen is a breakfast room that incorporates the spacious pantry, as well as a wine fridge and additional custom-designed shelving. French doors open to the slate patio and fire pit, while large casement windows flank the rear wall as you move into the family room. The family room includes a gas fireplace and incorporates a brick surround, which anchors the corner of the room. An office with built-in desks, shelving and bookcases is privately nestled at the rear of the home, while a functional mudroom off the 2-car garage, and a half bath with wainscoting and a marble vanity complete the main level.
Upstairs, the expansive master wing includes multiple large windows, hardwood floors and a large walk-in closet. The master bath is bedecked in Carrera marble including the floors, double-vanity counter tops, bath surround and oversized seamless glass shower. Truly decadent, the skylight allows ample natural light into this bright and elegant space. Three additional spacious bedrooms include hardwood floors, and large windows. A decorative Palladian window even graces one of the bedrooms. The updated hall bath includes a shower/tub combination as well as a double vanity with a marble counter. The walk-up attic is currently used for storage but could easily be finished to provide even more living space.
The finished lower level enjoys a large exercise room, and a bonus playroom with ample areas for ping-pong, lounging or creating a media area. The full-height ceiling, recessed lighting, bamboo hardwood flooring and ample storage closets make this a most functional space. A well-designed laundry room is also found on this level.
The incredible property is completely level and consists of a lovely slate patio and fire pit, as well as evergreen screening and lush lawns. Simple but professional landscape design lends an air of sophistication to the home, while being easy to maintain.
The forced-air heating in the home is a combination of oil and propane heat. A whole-house generator is also powered by the 1000 gallon buried propane tank. Close to the Wilton border, Silver Spring Country Club and Route 33, this beautiful cul-de-sac home offers a fabulous location to all points south, while still being only minutes from town center. A true gem!
