A Circa-1800 Colonial in Ridgefield Just Hit the Market
On Peaceable Street in Ridgefield, Connecticut—on grounds that were once part of the Doubleday Farm—there’s a just-listed, circa-1800 Colonial where the sellers spent a couple of decades renovating every inch of the 2,900-square-foot home. It opens onto an entry hall with a fireplace, then flows to formal living and dining rooms and a new kitchen with a hangout space and an oversized brick-faced fireplace.
Outside, the avid gardener of the pair built a chic barn that doubles as a party space and installed pretty pathways through English gardens abundant with hydrangea and cone flowers, as well as a kitchen garden and a chicken coop with 12 hens a-laying (ask nicely and they’ll leave the birds behind). It is listed for $829,000 with Karla Murtaugh of Karla Murtaugh Homes affiliated with Neumann Real Estate.
