Tewksbury Twp. NJ

3 beds | 3 baths | 6.95 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3385421


A bold stone contemporary on almost seven acres embodies a sense of the past. While updated to the minute, the local interior stone walls add warmth to the well-appointed layout. Sunlight dapples across the manicured wooded setting, casting shadows on the stone exterior. Walls of windows bring the dramatic views into each room.

Although the architecture has the look of an older structure, perhaps an antique stone building having a slate roof, the home was constructed as recently as 1973. Built as a Bank House into the natural topography of rising ground, the open floor plan presents two levels. The main level offers a two-story great room with floor-to-ceiling double-sided fieldstone fireplace, a library reading loft, a state-of-the-art kitchen of German design with high-end Jenn Air appliances, and a stunning dining room in which the two-sided stone fireplace rises two stories. Mention must be made of the exposed wood members defining and emphasizing the verticality of the two-story ceilings. They are in perfect keeping with a rugged yet refined discipline of the architecture.  There are also two bedroom suites on this level.

The two-story master suite is filled with light from glass doors on both sides of the room.  A patio adjoins. German-designed closet systems are located as you enter from the main part of the home.  Highlights of the stunning master bath include streamlined cherry cabinetry, chrome fixtures and granite countertops.

The walkout lower level has a large media-gathering room with handsome fieldstone fireplace, a bedroom with three closets, and a full bath. A spacious laundry room, storage rooms and mechanical rooms are also on the floor. This level works in many ways---great place for entertaining, for weekend guest quarters, or as a mother-daughter arrangement.

The exterior elements are no less stunning. A recently-constructed patio spans the entire length of the rear elevation. It is sheltered by “the boulders” which rise 20-plus feet and provide a dramatic backdrop and counterpoint to the manicured grounds. It creates a completely private vista as well. Nearby is a two-story, three-car stone and wood garage with space above which could be finished for a writer’s retreat, painting studio or guest quarters. It too has a slate roof.

This home and property are a true retreat from the cares of the world yet an easy commute to major highways.  There is a Farmland Assessment in place as a wood lot. Interstate 78 is nearby for commuters headed to Manhattan, and Newark Liberty International Airport is less than an hour away. World class golf courses, exceptional fishing at Ken Lockwood Gorge, hundreds of acres of preserved parkland and a network of bridle trails for equestrians characterize the pastoral beauty of Tewksbury Township.
