The Elms Water Tower at 500 Main Street #5, Ridgefield, CT
Luxurious Living In The Heart Of Downtown Ridgefield
If you want to be a part of something truly special – a place that blends history and progress seamlessly and without the maintenance of a traditional single family home – this spectacular condo is it!
Featuring an unsurpassed style, quality materials, top-notch construction and a sophistication rarely found, the Water Tower condo at The Elms in downtown Ridgefield could have easily been ripped from the pages of a design magazine. White oak hardwood floors, reclaimed wood beams, farmhouse-style sliding doors and clean, crisp lines dominate, while a soothing paint palette, textured tiles and simple paneling reflect the best in refined elegance.
Only an hour from NYC and part of a sixteen-unit renovation on the historic Elms Inn site, the Water Tower is perfectly sited to walk to everything Connecticut’s # 1 town has to offer including cultural amenities such as the Prospector Theatre, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum & ACT of CT, the community dog park and Winter Garden ice rink, as well as five-star restaurants, boutique shopping, spas, fitness and yoga studios, ball fields, and top-rated schools. Ballard Park is also directly across the street and hosts the Summer Concert Series, as well as numerous other festivals and events.
The entryway makes a statement from the minute you enter with modern shelving and a reclaimed wood, farmhouse-style, double slider providing both an inviting aesthetic and great functionality. Nine-foot ceilings continue through the open-concept main level, which includes a living room with a shiplap ceiling, a gas fireplace with a sleek, modern soapstone surround and reclaimed wood accent beams, as well as a dining area and gorgeous kitchen including an oversized Brazilian Granite Island and breakfast bar, professional Wolf microwave and 6-burner gas range, Asko dishwasher and SubZero refrigerator and beverage cooler. Details such as a hammered stainless steel prep sink, rustic white tile backsplash and unique wooded cabinetry on the island separate this property from others in both design and attention to detail. A powder room with sleek hand-blown tiles and a reclaimed wood and soapstone cabinet adjoin a mudroom with direct access to the two-car garage, cubbies, closets and more on the way to an office tucked away in the rear of the residence.
Moving upstairs, the master wing is an oasis of tranquility with a spacious bedroom featuring oversized windows and textured wallpapers, as well as French doors opening to a private sitting room with a fireplace, vaulted ceiling, reclaimed wood accent beams, and on-trend decor and fixtures. The radiant heated floors of the master bath make the white marble tile cozy and warm with a deep Victoria & Albert soaking tub joining the seamless glass shower with multiple shower heads including a rain head, and a double vanity with a central tower and exquisite custom cabintery. The attached dressing room includes multiple hanging racks, shoe shelves, dresser drawers and ample additional clothing shelves more suited to a high-end boutique. There are also two additional spacious bedrooms and an equally elegant hall bath. A large laundry room is also located on this floor.
The third floor does not disappoint and features two bedrooms with built-in desks, shelving and vaulted ceilings plus access to a fabulous full bath with dark grey marble tile floors, marble wall tiles, and gorgeous granite counters on the spacious double vanity. A central recreation room includes a window seat overlooking the undeveloped woodland beyond, as well as additional storage units, while up a few steps, the cathedral-ceilinged, octagonal Silo room includes reclaimed wood accents, a spectacular beam and chandelier, plus a custom couch that fits perfectly into the unique space.
Throughout the home, custom floor rugs overlay the hardwood adding to the design aesthetic and providing a warmth and softness to corridors and rooms. A natural gas furnace provides heat, while a spacious deck allows for hours of summertime relaxation while taking in the weekly concerts in the park.
