268 Mount Harmony Rd,
Bernardsville NJ

5 beds | 4.2 baths | 6.13 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3371144


A stunning manor on the Bernardsville Mountain has the look and feel of a 19th century French Country estate although it was constructed just 20 years ago. Ideal for memorable entertaining and everyday living, the superbly-detailed layout contains three bedrooms and three full  and two half baths, as well as a separate two-bedroom apartment featuring a living room, kitchenette, laundry area and full bath. Situated on over six acres of landscaped grounds and mature woodlands, this custom-built home captures glorious country views. 

Fine architecture is showcased in an exterior of stone, stucco and antique wood beams capped by a graduated slate roof. Further outdoor enhancements include a covered and skylit rear terrace with an outdoor fireplace and grill, separate stone office building with powder room, attached and detached garages to accommodate four cars, plus a huge stone-walled courtyard at the entrance. 

The gracious floor plan features flooring of hardwood, quarry tile, French antique limestone and brick, wood-burning fireplaces in the living and family rooms, a third fireplace on the terrace, a three-stop elevator, wet bar, high ceilings, exposed wood beams and ceiling trusses, window seats and custom built-ins. In keeping with the European style of the home, custom imported windows are topped in antique wood beam lintels. 

Magnificent gathering spaces on the main floor are airy and sunlit, providing a wonderful backdrop for special occasions and casual get-togethers. An open concept kitchen and family room combination presents a dual-sided center island, custom wood cabinetry, upper-end stainless steel appliances and views into the family room.  Beamed ceilings, a handsome fireplace and built-ins are character-filled design elements in this convivial area, while glass doors to the expansive terrace reinforce the home’s strong indoor-outdoor connection. Hand painted murals of forests and fields enhance a dining room set under towering beamed ceilings.

Upstairs, the generously-sized owner’s retreat contains a master sitting room, walk-in closets and two full baths. Spacious secondary bedrooms feature enchanting details reflecting the same Old World aesthetic in the rest of the home. Future living space is an option in the unfinished second floor space and in the full, unfinished basement which is also served by the elevator. A whole house built-in natural gas generator provides additional peace of mind. Modern and traditional amenities merge artfully in this one-of-a-kind French Country manor in a coveted Somerset Hills location.
