A masterpiece of design can be found at 93 Graenest Ridge Rd.. This magnificent modern landmark is in the heart of Wilton, just a short walk to the shops and restaurants in the Village Center. At the end of a cul-de-sac, the property sits on two manicured, private acres, and borders protected conservation land and walking trails. This 13-room spectacular retreat offers 6,500 sq. ft. of light-filled living space, including five bedrooms, a Gunite pool, spa and Yoga studio as well as an exercise room and game room with bar.
This meticulously appointed home was totally renovated with extraordinary detail in 2011. This striking and unique home features vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, extra-large rooms, and an open floor plan for flexible entertaining and living. Walk through the front door and be greeted by the foyer’s soaring ceilings, a unique circular staircase landing and a wispy chandelier that draws visitors’ eyes upwards to the second floor loft.
The piece de resistance is the fabulously sleek and modern chef’s kitchen which was featured in the Better Homes & Gardens Fall 2013 issue of Special Kitchen Ideas. This eat-in-style kitchen and adjoining family room is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows which lets in beautiful light and natural beauty from the surrounding grounds. Conveniently located on the first floor is a state of the art laundry with built in storage and a “folding” island. Beyond is a very spacious wing, with full bath for additional guest or living needs.
The exterior is a work of art wrapped with stone and wood, contrasting the soaring windows. The 3 bay garage is highlighted by beautifully crafted and well lit doors. Evening views of the house are breathtaking and the light coming from within the home illuminates outdoor entertaining. A modern deck spans the full length of the house and opens into the kitchen, dining and living spaces and looks upon the Gunite pool and patio.
The master bedroom and gorgeous new master bath are stylish and sophisticated, including two generous walk-in-closets and a sitting area for a quiet, private space. The two additional meticulously decorated bedrooms and a common loft area round out the living space upstairs.
Owners Marie and Charlie Zunda say the home is the perfect location.
“Living at 93 Graenest Ridge is the best of both worlds,” Marie says. “Yes, it’s at the end of a cul-de-sac, surrounded by conservation land and adjacent to Bradley Park, where nature is omnipresent and full of life daily. Enjoying family and friends at the pool or in the backyard, not even knowing you have neighbors as beautiful mature trees surround and give total privacy. Who would know, just a few feet away is Wilton Town Center, where you can shop or dine to your heart’s content. Total peace and serenity. What’s not to love?”
Her husband, Charlie, says what he has loved about living there is how the house fits so perfectly in its surroundings.
“I am always taken back by the amount of natural light that embraces 93 Graenest Ridge Rd. With walls of glass around every turn it is easy to feel one with nature as the private setting embraces you in every room. The open floor plan compliments the view of the outdoors, yet it is one of the most convenient locations in Wilton,” he says.
This home makes a statement of stunning and stylish sophistication with extraordinary light and exquisite finishes throughout. Coupled with Wilton’s award winning schools, Village Center and train to NYC, this unique property is waiting for the perfect owners….the entertainer’s dream, a country retreat, an artist gallery or a forever home.
