William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Renovated Home on Site of Historic Peaceable Acres


Ridgefield, Conn. – August 7, 2014 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyhas announced that the firm has listed a renovated and expanded shingle-style home on the site of the historic Peaceable Acres in Ridgefield, Conn. Ridgefield agent Laura Freed Ancona has the listing, which is offered at $3,195,000.

Peaceable Acres was once owned by Albert H. Wiggin, a New York banker during the late 19th and early 20th centuries who rose to the position of president at Chase National Bank. The private access way at the site is now known as Wiggin-Roberts Lane, named both for Wiggin and Peaceable Acres’ later owner, Dr. Roberts.

Located at 67 Peaceable Street, the residence occupies 4.04 acres of property that takes up a portion of the former Peaceable Acres, including two acres deeded with non-development rights in order to lower taxes and ensure that the land remains protected. The property provides views of the open space of Ward Acres Farms, a historic estate that once served as the site of the first private golf club in Ridgefield.

The current owners gave the home a $1.2 million expansion and renovation that included the cedar roof and siding, new windows and doors, a custom kitchen, custom millwork and trim, two new full baths, a covered porch, designer lighting and fixtures, the master bedroom’s dressing room and radiant-heated master bath, the heated gunite pool and spa, and the professional landscaping. The home has 9,268 square feet of living with six bedrooms and five full and two half baths.

“This one-of-a-kind in-town estate home offers a gorgeous historic setting and a casually elegant interior that boasts a stunning renovation,” said Freed Ancona. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the discerning buyer.”
