Description/Comments


Lot Size: 2 acre(s)
Property Type: Residential
Year Built: 1739
Notes: For people who love beauty: This charming farmhouse retreat, with barn, overlooks one of Ridgefield’s most enchanting properties: 2.46 pastoral acres of tranquil lawns, mature trees, organic vegetable garden, and a thriving meadow enlivened with birds and bordering protected open space. The historic house dates to 1739, beckoning all to relax into the rare, enduring beauty of wide board chestnut floors, antique glass in 12 over 12 paned windows, and 3 fireplaces for cozy winters. In addition to the main home, this bucolic country compound includes the expansive red barn w/ 2 garage bays, 2 horse stalls & 2nd floor loft; potting shed; flowering dogwood, apple, plum, and cherry trees; and extraordinary birches & sugar maples. In 1781 the French army led by General Rochambeau stopped here for water from the stone lined well at the SE corner, on their way to meet George Washington, who marched past a year earlier. Today: 2,541 sf on 3 finished levels, 4 BR & 3 full baths. The 1st floor offers gracious living & dining rooms for entertaining; cozy library w/built-in bookshelves; den or guest BR w/full bath; plus EIK featuring S/S counters & appliances incl. gas range/hood, dishwasher, & new refrigerator. Front & back stairways lead to the 2nd floor offering 3 more BRs & full bath; plus walk up to 3rd floor w/2 additional rooms & 3rd bath. Idyllic location, convenient to restaurants, shopping & Whole Foods, plus all commuting routes and train stations– just 1 hour from Manhattan.
