The “Little House," as the pool house is known, makes the perfect artist’s studio/home office showcasing vaulted ceilings and 2nd story loft. Total 6 bedrooms, 4/2 baths and 5 fireplaces with over $1.2M invested in interior reconfiguration; re-steeling; great room with radiant heated floor; kitchen and bath renovations; C/A; pool/pool house; master bedroom with fireplace, built-ins, and full bath with air massage tub and heated floor. Extensively remodeled lower level offering a pvt guest suite with full bath; charming den w/exposed stone walls; wood burning stove; and double sets of French doors to the backyard resort. This notable home was moved by A. Barton Hepburn in 1906 to its current location on historic "Publisher's Row". The Hepburn era gave High Ridge its nickname for being home to significant book publishers, artists, entertainers, bankers and philanthropists, contributing to the vibrancy for which Ridgefield is still known.
