Maple Hill, Ridgefield, CT
Elegance Beyond Reproach
Spectacular Maple Hill Estate, located in Ridgefield’s premiere country club neighborhood, is at once elegant and refined, while retaining a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Custom built for the owners, the home was expanded in 2000 to include a wellness wing with a gym, 68-foot lap pool, spa, kitchen and guest quarters.
Front to back views welcome you into the light-filled residence. A curving central stair leads to the upper floor, while perfectly proportioned rooms branch off in both directions. A formal living room leads to two adjoining offices, while the formal dining room offers entrance to both a family room and an eat-in kitchen.
The spacious kitchen is perfect for entertaining with honed limestone counters, plenty of cream cabinetry, Dacor double ovens, a gas cooktop, a side-by-side SubZero refrigerator/freezer and two dishwashers. The breakfast area overlooks the sunken family room while offering access to the expansive rear deck. A large walk-in pantry also provides plenty of storage.
The main bedroom in the residence includes vaulted ceilings, a private balcony, fireplace, two dressing rooms and a spacious white bath with a jetted tub, walk-in shower, and a double vanity. There are four additional bedrooms on the second floor, all with access to either a Jack and Jill or en-suite bathroom. There is also a media room with direct access to the wellness wing.
The third floor features a wonderful suite with a living and bedroom area, full bath, walk-in closet, bar area and plenty of storage. The lower level recreation room is also a grand space with a cozy fireplace and plenty of room for additional offices. There is also an art/craft room and additional storage.
This spectacular wing encompasses a full gym, four-piece bathroom, changing room, laundry room and a family room with a breezeway over the 68-foot lap pool below. The bromine, gunite pool itself includes a safety cover and spa and is surrounded by French doors letting in plenty of natural light.
The beautiful 2.33 acres perfectly complements the house. Surrounded by perennial gardens, mature trees and overlooking acres of undeveloped open space, it provides a stunning backdrop for hours of entertaining on the multiple decks and patios. Two 500-gallon buried propane tanks power an automatic generator, as well as providing heating to the wellness wing and pool. Six garages will also satisfy even the most discerning car collector!
