Own A Piece Of Ridgefield History
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 with 2 garage bays, 2 horse stalls and 2nd floor loft; potting shed; flowering dogwood, apple, plum, and cherry trees; and extraordinary birches and 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 square feet on 3 finished levels, 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The 1st floor offers gracious living and dining rooms for entertaining; cozy library with built-in bookshelves; den or guest bedroom with full bath; plus eat in kitchen featuring stainless steel counters and appliances incl. gas range/hood, dishwasher, and new refrigerator.
