Center-hall colonial in Wilton has been ‘priced to sell’
WILTON — The stone-and-shingle center hall colonial at 1072 Ridgefield Road in Wilton has been listed for $1.499 million by Dori Seamans of Realty Seven, Incorporated. The property is “priced to sell,” according to the Realtor.
The home was built in 2006 and has been meticulously maintained and updated. The current homeowner, Eric Bickler, acquired the property in 2013 as a family residence, and later leveraged it as an investment property — a high-end luxury rental. He’s taken pride in ensuring that it’s move-in ready for the next residents.
“I have installed a whole-house generator, updated the basement, added new pool equipment, along with doing substantial property upkeep and maintenance,” Bickler said.
The colonial comprises four full levels — all finished — and 6,622 square feet of living space, with “sun-drenched rooms,” according to its listing description.
A prominent, covered front porch is a lovely space to greet guests or to sit and enjoy the view. Just inside the main entrance, they’ll be captivated by the foyer, with a high ceiling above and herringbone-patterned hardwood flooring below. The center-hall staircase rises up to a second-level landing.
To the right sits the home’s formal living room, where there’s one of the residence’s several fireplaces. To the left, the formal dining room is found, with paneled walls and a tray ceiling.”

Features: Situated on 2.93 acres in Wilton, this center-hall colonial was built in 2006 and comprises 6,622 square feet of living space, with four full and finished levels. Among the interior spaces are formal living and dining rooms, a family room, chef’s kitchen, playroom and recreation room. The home has five bedrooms, four full baths and three partial baths.
Schools: Miller-Driscoll Elementary, Middlebrook Middle, Wilton High
The kitchen has been artfully designed around a large center island with prep sink, task space and seating for three. The cabinets have been finished in a soft white, creating a bright aesthetic, with granite countertops and white farmhouse-style sink. The kitchen flows to a breakfast area and then to the family room, where there’s a stone fireplace, large spans of windows and access out to the backyard terrace.
“The home entertains very well,” Bickler noted. “The backyard is extremely private, with plenty of room to both enjoy the pool and yard. The house flows very nicely inside, as a center-hall colonial. There are living rooms both on the main floor, as well as upstairs, not to mention the large finished attic that can serve as a playroom or for more entertaining space.”
The layout allows for five bedrooms, including the master suite, which has been appended with a fireplace, a spa bath and a sitting room, which might also be used for personal exercise space.
One story up, the home’s third level has a large bonus space and a bath. It works well as a spacious playroom or secondary family room.
Finally, the lower level has been finished and walks out to the backyard and pool. It has room for recreation or gaming, in addition to a bedroom and full bath — a possible live-in staff option.
This lot spans nearly 3 acres, with varied topography and a pond on site that is shared with a neighboring property. Despite the body of water, this home is not in a flood zone.
The landscaped grounds provide a private spot for the back deck, pool, outdoor fireplace and stone terrace — all looking out to the pond. The effect is “true serenity,” the listing Realtor suggested.
“The Wilton community is a lovely place to raise a family,” the seller said. “The schools are excellent; the people are friendly, and you can access major highways, as well as New York City, very quickly. You can feel like you are on vacation, while being close to everything the area has to offer.”
Seamans pointed out that the location of the property not only affords easy access to Wilton, but Ridgefield’s town center is nearby, too.
“If you are looking for a home that is both close to town and also offers privacy and beauty, this one has both,” Bickler concluded.
