STAMFORD, Conn. – A historic Stamford home once owned by a renowned journalist as well as a trailblazing physician has hit the market at 229 E. Hunting Ridge Road.
The four-bedroom, 5½-bath home in North Stamford was built in 1934 for Manfred Gottlieb, chief foreign correspondent of Time-Life, Inc. and former managing editor of Fortune Magazine. He lived in the home for 30 years until it was purchased by Dr. Robert J. Schultz, a hand surgeon who designed the artificial finger.
Frasier Forman Peters was the architect for the home, which is listed as a 20th-century revival home by the Connecticut Historical Commission. The name of the property is Appleyard (the property was once an apple orchard) according to information provided by the Stamford Historical Society. Forman Peters was a specialist in constructing stone houses.
The home is listed for $1.45 million and includes 1.5 acres with mature trees and shrubbery. Other exterior features include an in-ground pool, slate patios, stone walls and a large detached bonus area with two rooms and a full bath. There is also a greenhouse.
The kitchen has Dolomite floors with radiant heat, a gourmet stove, alabaster glass pendants and sandstone countertops. There are also tiled window sills, custom millwork and a stone fireplace mantle created and built by an artist. The home has many other unique details inside and out, including a Klaff’s custom built kitchen, gourmet stove and an exercise room.
The home is listed by Higgins Group and agent Robyn Blosio Bova. Complete information is on the listing website. Blosio Bova can be reached at 203-504-5005.
