Red Gate is defined by an exceptional country setting on nearly five acres of bucolic land enhanced by a scenic pond, windswept meadows, carriage house with guest apartment, barn with stables and entertaining space plus a refreshing in-ground swimming pool. The picturesque acreage creates a magical backdrop for this refined Harding Township estate. Its serene location is close to vibrant downtown Morristown for shopping, dining and Midtown Direct train service to Manhattan, yet offers a relaxed lifestyle that feels world’s away.
Beautifully renovated last year, the expansive floor plan offers five bedrooms, five full baths and two powder rooms. Highlights include an epically-scaled chef’s kitchen opening to an eating area and family room, a great room with wet bar, a handsome library or billiards room, beamed ceiling dining room and indulgent master suite. Five fireplaces, cherry floors on the first and second levels, and the potential for multi-generational living in an architect-designed expansion are additional grace notes.
Red Gate is located in New Vernon’s desirable Silver Lake Historic District. The entrance is distinguished by two red gates topped by black falcons leading to the circular drive. The property includes a two-story barn with stables below and finished two-story recreation or party space upstairs; a playhouse; in-ground swimming pool with shed; and a captivating spring-fed pond for row boating, fishing and ice-skating. The carriage house includes a four-car garage on the ground level and an expansive guest apartment with two bathrooms, a sauna and balcony overlooking the scenic property.
