Built in 1880 as the A.L. Benedict House, this welcoming Victorian farmhouse has been fully restored, remodeled, & expanded to seamlessly blend historic details with a light, open, & timeless design. Total 4,775 sf in the main home w/4 finished floors, 6 BR, 4/2 BA, 5 fplc, & over $1.2M invested in interior reconfiguration; great rm w/radiant htd floor; kitchen/bath renovations; C/A; MBR suite w/fplc, built-ins, full bath w/air massage tub & htd floor; plus lower level w/pvt guest suite, full bath, charming den w/exposed stone walls, wood burning stove, & double sets of French doors to the backyard resort.

Barton Hepburn in 1906 to its current location on "Publisher's Row". The Hepburn era gave High Ridge this nickname for being home to significant book publishers, artists, entertainers, bankers & philanthropists, contributing to the vibrancy for which Ridgefield is still known.

We love that we can walk EVERYWHERE; that we can leash up the dogs and walk to the most charming, culturally alive Main Street in CT; that the house has the grace of history made open and airy with a modern “see-through” design; that there is a sunny porch, deck, or terrace for any hour of the day; plus a pool and five fireplaces to enjoy every season. We love that the house has a happy heart - a sweet place to grow up, the gathering place for sleepovers, pool parties, inside/outside dinners, fundraisers…the quintessential family and friends home.
