This warm and inviting midcentury ranch home sits on a large lot – over an acre – on one of the premier streets in Ridglea at 4225 Ridgehaven Road.
A gated courtyard with water fountain greets you as you walk up to the front door from the circular drive.
The updated traditional kitchen with large island and its cozy attached sitting area with fireplace overlook the courtyard and the Japanese maple tree tucked in the front landscaping.
The open living floorplan flows easily throughout the house. The main living areas feature beautiful herringbone brick floors. An oversized copper fireplace and vaulted ceilings with painted beams make a statement of warmth and beauty in the heart of the home in the open dining and living space.
The sunroom with its great built-ins that adjoins the main living room is a great place to snuggle in and read a book or watch television. The sunroom and living room both look over the large backyard at the gardens, outdoor kitchen, fire pit and gated pool with heated spa.
From the sunroom, you can enter the library, which could be converted back into a fifth bedroom if desired. The library and bedrooms down the hall in this ranch are all oversized rooms with beautiful hardwood floors and lots of custom shelving and storage.
The master bedroom has an attached office or workout room with French doors that open onto a private side yard with a stone patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee. The master bedroom has built-in shelving and entertainment storage and multiple storage closets as well as a separate walk-in closet. Walk down a hallway of mirrored storage closets into the master bathroom that features double vanities with three sinks, a soaking tub and a separate steam shower.
On the north end of the house off the kitchen, you’ll pass through a gorgeous butler’s pantry with mirrored shelves that allow you to display your prized serving and bar pieces while providing storage for the rest.
Down the hallway is a powder bath, the temperature-controlled wine storage room, the laundry room with a sink, a holding room for your dogs and the private and secluded mother-in-law’s suite. Perfect for family members or visitors who want a little more privacy, the mother-in-law’s suite has a large living area, a separate bedroom, a full bathroom and a small room that could be a large closet or where a kitchenette could be added.
