Welcome to “The Ledges”, an in-town, yet private estate like no other on the CT Shoreline, south of the Post Road. Referred to as the “flagship property” of downtown Madison, this turn of the century house, built in 1903 by the prominent Scranton family, sits proudly on top a hill of 1.8 acres, affording convenience yet total privacy. The house is an architectural gem w/ high ceilings, hand-carved period moldings, bay windows, French doors, balconies, a large porch and a beautiful bluestone terrace. As you enter the front door, the “piece de resistance” is a two-story spiral staircase. Large scale rooms w/ plaster walls exude old world charm throughout. The 4 of 4.5 bathrooms have all been custom designed with marble floors, imported tiles, & Waterworks fixtures. Large eat-in kitchen w/ orig tall glass & wood cabinets include a butlers pantry w/wet bar. The “greenhouse” has French doors w/ North & South access to the outside. Comfortable study/sitting room has views of the property from its large bay window. Elegant South facing dining room & living room to right & left of the foyer. Finished attic rooms. This is a gardeners’ dream property which includes topiary gardens, specimen plantings, sprawling stone walls, & terraced yard.
