Relaxed Living Close To Town
Welcome to a piece of Ridgefield history! Used as a British Hospital during the Battle of Ridgefield, the sprawling, in-town, mini-estate has been lovingly updated over the years, while still retaining its Colonial era charm. Wide board hardwood floors, exposed beams, decorative arched entryways and large numbers of divided light windows lend a relaxed elegance to both the public and intimate spaces. In addition, the incredible walk-to-town setting includes a spectacular pool, multiple storage sheds, a bluestone patio and a fabulous cottage. There is even a chicken coop and beautiful gardens for those with a green thumb.
The house meanders through multiple rooms including living and dining rooms – both with fireplaces – a library with another fireplace, a sunroom, eat-in kitchen and adjacent family room, plus a conservatory. A blend of old and new, the flow of the house seamlessly moves from one room to another for a comfortable experience, while entertaining is breeze due to the large amounts of storage and prep space in the butler’s pantry.
Upstairs, the master suite overlooks the gardens with a private deck accessed through French doors. A fireplace and marble full bath with a free-standing tub and shower plus dual vanities is a haven of relaxation. Jack and Jill or en suite baths service the remaining four bedrooms in the main house.
Over the two car garage, a guest suite includes access to an office, full bath and huge bedroom, which could also be used a bonus space or second family room. A spacious mudroom provides easy access to the garage and the outside, while a third floor attic recreation room offers yet another option for visitors or office space.
Surrounded by classic white and stone fencing, and in incredible proximity to all Connecticut’s first Cultural District has to offer including the Prospector Theatre, the Ridgefield Playhouse, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, ACT of CT & more plus 5-star restaurants & boutique shopping, this spectacular Ridgefield gem is a masterpiece of timeless architecture. Truly special!
