1802 Victorian

Ridgefield, Connecticut 06877

Award-Winning Restoration

This glorious home has been the residence of several pillars of the community starting with the Hurlbutts and then Dr. William H. Allee, an ernest and progressive citizen properly called “The Father of Ridgefield High School”, and his wife, Laura Curie Allee, a suffragist who worked with then U.S. Senator Warren G. Harding on helping get the 19th Amendment passed in 1920. Today it's a wonderful, warm and inviting family home.

Rich in History of Location, Ownership and Guests

Remarkable vestiges of a storied past remain including a sleeping porch with original canvas floor and, in the basement, the remains of one of the first residential elevators ever
installed. All the charm and character of yesterday — seamlessly blended with modern amenities for the ideal family home.

You’ll enter to find beautiful woodwork and original detailing. The grand proportions of the 28’x24’ living room are met with intimate spaces and tranquil ambiances of other rooms. The grand veranda offers 70’ of relaxation and entertainment space, and recalls a time when prominent New Yorkers came to summer in this glorious country retreat. The master bedroom suite with fireplace, his and hers bathrooms and separate sitting/dressing room has two sets of French doors opening to an all-seasons porch. Beyond the master, you’ll find a bevy of additional bedrooms, playrooms and baths. Every room on each of three floors is a delight. Basement can convert to a wine cellar.

The home has a second address with private entry at 2 Market Street to a three room lock-out with full bath—ideal for a professional home office, au-pair or in-law suite.

Located on a coveted historic boulevard lined with centuries old elms, shaded lawns and sidewalks to stroll to schools, restaurants and shops.
