Fabulous Custom-Built Masterpiece
Located in a private enclave of homes, this beautiful, Letourneau-built Stone & Shingle residence is perched majestically on a sprawling hillside amid green lawns, mature trees and beautifully tended stone walls. Perfectly situated for commuting to lower Fairfield and Westchester counties, and just minutes to town, this home is truly special.
Immediately apparent as you approach the residence is the attention paid to each part of the home. From the Belgian block lined drive and slate walkways, to the mahogany doors and multiple decks, impressive crown moldings, 9-foot plus ceilings throughout, beautiful paneling, and gorgeous use of color and design on the walls, cabinets and floors, every detail has been carefully crafted to create a memorable experience.
A House To Remember
The large foyer is flanked by arched entryways leading to the formal living room with a marble fireplace, an expansive dining room with coffered ceilings and direct access to a butler’s pantry with a wine fridge and dishwasher. The library features French doors, beautiful mahogany built-in cabinetry and shelving, along with a wet bar including a refrigerator, and stunning fireplace featuring an ornate English coal fireplace insert. Continuing towards the back of the house the spacious kitchen features granite counters, ample cabinets, a Wolf 4-burner gas stove with griddle and grill, double ovens and a pot filler, full size Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, and Miele dishwasher. The large breakfast room walks out through French doors to a bluestone slate patio and has fabulous views of the gazebo, arbors and beautiful landscaping. The family room continues bringing the outside in with access through French doors to a mahogany deck, and the wonderful in-ground spa and waterfall privately nestled amidst large boulders and perennial beds. A large mudroom, two powder rooms, and access to the three-car garage complete the level.
Perfectly Designed For Modern Living
Moving upstairs via the central staircase, you are immediately taken in by the magnificent chandelier and balconies surrounding the floor. The three-story high central rotunda features beadboard ceilings and a cupola, and is incredible in both scope and stature. The master wing features a double-door entry to a large sitting room with built-in cabinetry, bar fridge, and beautiful views. Enjoy quiet summer days on the Juliet balcony or cozy winter nights by the fire in the master bedroom, which also includes a spacious walk-in closet with drawers, shoe shelves, and ample hanging space. The sumptuous master bath includes an oversize steam shower with multiple shower heads, jetted tub, two custom-built vanities and a separate commode. Gorgeous marble flooring and countertops bring a sense of serenity and elegance to the space. Four additional, well-sized ensuite bedrooms, bonus office or playroom, walk-in linen closet, back stair and large laundry room complete the level.
Sited on over three stunning acres in a four-home enclave in south Ridgefield, the residence features beautiful year-round and perennial beds, swathes of green lawn, and a pride of ownership reserved for the most discerning homeowners. The gazebo includes a mahogany deck and ceiling fan, and perfectly complements the Stone & Shingle design of the main house. An in-ground spa nestles in amongst large boulders and is secluded, yet welcoming, while a built-in outdoor Wolf grill and multiple patios, decks, arbors and pergolas complete this tranquil setting.
Turn-key and complete with surround sound, generator, sprinkler system, double-thick hand-split cedar roof, and pool site, this house has everything you could want and more!
