The custom-built colonial house at 70 Hunting Ridge Road abuts the 153.5-acre Paine Open Space with hiking and bridle trails and ponds for ice skating.
It is a greige brick house with colonial red shutters; griege being a trendy color combining the warm and cool tones of beige and gray. Its interior — comprising 11 rooms and 7,694 square feet — is at once able to accommodate formal and casual living and entertaining.
The house was built in 1999 on a 3.5-acre level and tranquil property that adjoins Paine Open Space. Think of it as a 153.5-acre extension to the backyard. This is a municipal open space shared with the Aspetuck Land Trust. It features hiking and designated bridle trails, open meadows, woodland areas, and almost a dozen ponds. Although fishing is not allowed ice skating is, and as winter approaches perhaps skating outside can be a safe alternative to a rink for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. Dogs are allowed but must be leashed.
