Elegant Connecticut Estate
5 BD / 3 BA / 2 Half BA
+/- 6,800 sf
Lot Size: +/- 2.7 acres
SOLD PRIOR TO LUXURY AUCTION®! This elegant estate is situated on 2.7 lush acres in exclusive southern Ridgefield, and boasts impressive “smart home” amenities. Built to the highest architectural standards, the Property was designed to be beautiful, comfortable and low-maintenance. There are 5 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths throughout three levels and +/-6,800 sf. The residence’s fully-integrated home automation has been featured on television and in Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Archi-TECH Residential and Tech Home Builder magazines.
Designed in collaboration with Phoenix Audio Video of Fairfield, CT, the home’s technology systems are easily controlled by a series of one-touch, wall-mounted digital panels located throughout its living areas. From these stations everything from the garage doors to the waterfall within the 7-seat spa can be controlled by a fingertip! Sensors throughout the Property are set to trigger customized commands in the event of snow, rain or the arrival of dinner guests. A 25-kW generator and battery backups assure power is uninterrupted, even in inclement weather.
MacMillan Architects in Ridgefield worked for over 18 months to design the Property, and emphasized the use of reliable, low-maintenance materials. The home’s siding, shingles, and exterior trim are constructed of components that are especially impervious to weather and rot, and that are more easily repaired if required.
Landscape plans were developed with Studer Design Associates of Ridgefield, and include a 60-ft pond, in-ground spa with rock waterfall, multiple gardens and a gazebo (conceptual plans are also available for the addition of an in-ground swimming pool). Scaping Falls Nursery and Gardens of Scarsdale constructed the 6,000 sf of paved driveway, 3,000 sf of stone terraces and stone walls that enhance the beauty of the landscaping. A small garden building neatly stores supplies, and the sides and rear of the property are fenced with 8-ft, black-coated fencing to deter deer.
The home’s first floor is built for entertaining, and offers a sunken living room and grand dining room – all enhanced by handsome wood molding and hardwood floors. The rear of the residence features a family room, game room and home theater, while a large, mahogany-paneled office designed by Neal Zimmerman (a leading architect in workplace planning) maximizes productivity. Second-floor bedrooms include a spacious master suite, 4 guest bedrooms and 2 full baths. In addition, 1,700 sf of “bonus space” is available for additional bedrooms or common areas, while a walk-up attic offers another 1,267 sf of storage or flexible space.
An attached, 5-car garage and a detached, 2-car garage provide ample space for automobiles. The 2-car garage also includes a heated room with plumbing that could be used as a studio, office, or modest “man-cave.”
