Welcome to 20 Ridge Terrace. This cosmopolitan Glenwood Colonial has been completely renovated on every level.


Enter into the front-to-back foyer and this beautiful home opens up to a formal dining room and the elegant living room where a bay window and gorgeous wood burning fireplace welcome you in. French doors lead to the family room where floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate and offer stunning tree-top views overlooking the lush backyard. This space effortlessly flows into the open-concept, gourmet kitchen and unique back-it bar where no expense was spared on the state-of-the-art professional appliances (Viking, Miele), sleek, custom cabinetry, and quartz countertop with Italian marble backsplash. Access to a mudroom space, powder room and two-car attached garage complete this level.

Upstairs, find four spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms, including the light-infused, primary suite with an impressive walk-in closet and luxurious primary bath with a double vanity, jetted tub and glass shower.

The completely finished lower level has a game room, bonus/exercise room, half bath, laundry room, incredible rec room, or 5th bedroom suite that has a 2nd kitchen and double French doors that open onto the lower deck.
Designed for easy-flow and flawless entertaining, from the kitchen you can head out to the stone patio or pass through the sliding doors to your outdoor oasis – where gorgeous decks, on multiple levels, overlook the lush, park-like property for seamless indoor/outdoor living.
