74 Norrans Ridge Dr, Ridgefield, CT

Remarkable Living Close To Town With An In-Law Suite, Level Yard & Additional Barn/Garage

Tucked away in the sought-after community of Norrans Ridge, this beautiful, classic colonial offers an incredible amount of space for comfortable living. Four bedrooms are joined by an in-law/ au paire suite, as well as a spacious open floor plan and finished lower level.

The formal living room, located off the foyer, sets the elegant tone with large divided-light windows, and soft colors. This is also felt in the formal dining room opposite, which includes an on-trend chandelier and easy access to the eat-in kitchen. The kitchen itself includes high-end stainless steel appliances such as a Viking 6-burner gas cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, Thermador double wall ovens and an integrated refrigerator. Leathered granite counters join neutral cabinetry for a classic look, with a large island and breakfast bar completing the main area. An adjoining breakfast room is complemented by a spacious pantry and walks out to the large rear deck. Open to the vaulted family room with a gorgeous gas fireplace and exposed beams, this hub creates a wonderful heart to the home. A wet bar leads the way to the private study, where sliders also offer access to the deck.

Upstairs, a comfortable master suite includes a walk-in California closet and a gorgeous spa-like bath with a soaking tub and an oversized shower. Three additional bedrooms and a full bath complete the floor. The finished lower level features both gaming and media rooms, as well as an incredible wine room with an electric fireplace. Truly, a wonderful place to retire after a long day. Additional storage is also found here.

In addition to these spaces in the main home, the attached three-car garage leads to a main floor laundry room and a separate entrance offering access to an in-law/ au paire suite. The bedroom, living and dining area is joined by an updated bathroom and kitchenette, providing truly independent living. In addition, a detached, heated two-car barn/garage includes room for two-lifts for the avid car collector, or also functions as a sports room, indoor basketball court, artist’s studio, or whatever is desired!

The spectacular, level yard is awash in colorful plantings with hydrangeas and peonies galore. An abundance of large trees also serves to create a sense of privacy.

With a new roof, propane furnace, generator, Nest thermostats and more, this home is the picture of elegance and efficiency.
