Property descriptionThis impressive English-style stone manor is set on 3.6 beautiful acres & was designed by Grosvenor Atterbury, the famed Yale architect who specialized in weekend homes for the wealthy. Built in 1911 & fully renovated in 2005, the house also features incredible gardens designed by Warren Manning, a well-known landscaper who contributed to the 1893 Chicago World Fair & the Biltmore Estate. Many of his historic plantings remain & they were catalogued by the Smithsonian in the fall of 2017. Wrought-iron accents, trellises, sunken gardens & single-stone window sills adorn the exterior of the home, complementing the original hardwood flooring, fireplaces & ornate trim work found inside. Lovingly restored rooms including a study, family & dining rooms & a conservatory join a modern kitchen w/custom appliances, French-inspired pantries & a stone floor, while a cheerful living room offers a floor-to-ceiling fireplace & a sunken bar, enabling guests to be at eye level with their host or hostess as they talk the night away. Multiple porches & patios create several inviting "outdoor rooms" reminiscent of either exquisite European sunken gardens, or more casual fireside dining. Th upper & 3rd floor incl a master suite w/a large WIC & relaxing full bath +3 add'l en-suite BR w/sweeping views of the grounds. Located in West Mountain Estates w/pool, tennis & rec facilities, the home is only minutes to Ridgefield center & an easy commute to NYC. A very special, one-of-a-kind residence!
