Ridgewood Real estate

fairmount Road, Ridgewood

December 12, 1977

An artistic Norman Tudor of whitewashed brick and stone with heavy slate roof and permanent cypress trim. Glorious setting of more than a thousand magnificent trees and shrubs, that bloom in a parade of colors from early Spring until Fall. An elegant residence with a country touch. . . yet. . .only minutes away from the Willard School, Tennis Club and New York transportation. Enter through the olde English door into a Norman world with its' own enchanting charm of antiqued chestnut woodwork, solid chestnut floors and rooms with intriguing angles and turns. From the gracious center entry, two steps down, is the large living room with 10' ceilings, massive fireplace etched with stone and French doors that lead to an entrancing loggia with vaulted roof and antique hand-hewn beams. There is a delightful dining room with a graceful bay window, a book-lined library of antiqued cypress and a beamed country kitchen for family enjoyment. On the second floor: a master bedroom fit for a king, 3 additional spacious bedrooms, 3 baths and a hidden playroom (in a turret) for little ones on a cold winter's day. Secluded in the gardens is the ULTIMATE--- a Lord & Burnham "Orlyt" greenhouse, 12 x 18 with automatic heating and ventilation. Imagine, your own spicy carnations, heavenly-fragranced Stock-- even orchids if you wish--with snow falling outside! You MUST see this Carl Kemm Loven designed showplace. Never before advertised.
