Over the past decade, Connecticut Magazine has ranked the quiet town of Redding as the number one or number two small town in the state. This peaceful rural community in the heart of Fairfield County takes great pride in its commitment to education, maintaining open space and preserving its historical and natural resources. Although the town modestly shows the wealth that is identified with Fairfield County, it has managed to preserve its distinctive charming character and offers a more secluded option for homeownership, while being within just 65 miles of midtown Manhattan.

Elegantly sited on two lush acres in lower Redding, complete with gunite pool, bocce court, pond views and access to a private beach, this classic colonial affords the very best of what Redding has to offer.

“It is the perfect place to raise kids,” said the owners, noting that Joel Barlow High School ranked #9 county-wide according to Niche 2021. In addition, the quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood is ideal for walking and cycling, and there are miles of hiking trails throughout the town. The home’s coveted Bridle Road address also enjoys the benefits of being right around the corner from a private pond with association access to a sandy beach and fishing.

“You can have it all - pool, pond, bocce court, natural setting, award-winning schools and a country lifestyle within 65 miles of midtown Manhattan,” says listing agent Susan Leone.

The home’s open concept floorplan is ideal for comfortable daily living and entertaining. It centers on a beautifully updated kitchen with wainscoting ceiling and peninsula with Viking six-burner range, hood and seating for six. The kitchen opens into an inviting family room with cathedral ceiling, a striking floor-to-ceiling woodburning stone fireplace and sliders to an expansive cedar deck with trellis, creating an enchanting setting overlooking the pool, grounds and bocce court.

The formal dining room is welcoming, while the living room features a gas fireplace and opens to the manicured gardens.

The versatile floorplan offers the flexibility and convenience of a first-floor master wing or in-law suite with its own separate entrance. The master bedroom features a sitting area with fireplace, French doors to the terrace and pool, and master bath. Above the master suite is a grand bonus room with vaulted ceiling and expansive windows with beautiful views, ideal for a home gym, office, playroom, game room or additional living quarters.
