Built in 1880 as the A.L. Benedict House, this welcoming Victorian farmhouse has been lovingly restored & remodeled by the current owners to create their own country compound offering 5,300 sf of living space complete with heated gunite pool, pool house (528 sf), & captivating 4 story home (4,775 sf) offering the best of old & new. The "Little Houseâ€� as the pool house is known makes the perfect artist’s studio or home office w/dramatic beamed & vltd main level plus 2nd story loft. Total 6 BR, 4 full/2 half baths, & 5 fplcs w/over $1.2M invested in interior reconfiguration; re-steeling; kitchen & bath renovations; C/A; pool/pool house; MBR suite w/fplc, built-ins, & full bath w/air massage tub & radiant htd floor.

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 notable book publishers, artists, entertainers, bankers & philanthropists, which contributed to the vibrancy for which Ridgefield is still known. Extraordinary!
