If you love charm and character, look no further! This beautifully updated vintage Colonial has it in spades. Gorgeous, refinished hardwood floors, lots of large windows, a screened porch and exposed beams abound, while transitional paint colors, an updated kitchen and baths, and ample closet space, mean the home functions well for modern living. Multiple home office options plus over $50,000 in upgrades make this home perfect as a weekend or full-time residence.
The huge, open concept living room provides front-to-back views out through French doors to the rear yard, and includes a wood burning fireplace with a beehive oven and built-ins. It connects to the spacious dining room, which also offers access to an adjacent solarium or greenhouse for the green thumbs out there. Continuing through, the kitchen includes black granite counters, a stainless range with double ovens, refrigerator, dishwasher and white cabinetry, as well as lovely grey, marble-style tile and a breakfast area. Not often found in an antique home, the adjacent open concept family room includes exposed beams and a fireplace with access through huge glass sliders to the yard. It also connects to the central library/home office with a skylight, fireplace, beautiful wood shelving & a full bath. A main floor laundry and mudroom complete the floor.
Off the kitchen a private stairway leads to a quiet suite with a bedroom and full bath. The main stairway leads to a large loft area, two bedrooms and a hall bath plus a master bedroom with an attached sitting room and a full bath. Ample closets are found here as well.
In addition, the income-producing apartment over the detached three-car garage includes a combined living and kitchen great room, bedroom, den and full bath overlooking the property.
The property itself is comprised of three level acres subdivided from the previous nine acre parcel. Located in the equestrian area of town just minutes from schools and all major shopping in Danbury – as well as being just a quick drive to downtown Ridgefield itself – the home offers endless possibilities for a backyard horse enthusiast, or simply for relaxing and enjoying the sunsets. And for golf aficionados, the Ridgefield Public Golf Course is just down the street! With so much to offer, why wait?
