Mendham Boro NJ

4 beds | 3.3 baths | 1 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3407768


Welcome to an exceptional center hall Colonial located on a premier country road in Mendham Borough, where it is sited less than a mile from the charming and historic village shops and eateries. The custom-built home offers four bedrooms, three full and three half baths and an attached two-car garage plus a finished barn/garage on an acre of picturesque property.  

Close attention to detail is evident throughout the first and second floors which offer radiant heat in every room including marble baths, quarter sawn oak floors, divided light windows, custom oversized and detailed moldings, coffered ceilings in multiple areas, designer-scale recessed lighting and outlets set into baseboard moldings. 

A covered entrance introduces the gracious foyer flanked by the formal dining room and living room. Elegant features in the dining room include built-ins and two stylish butler’s pantries. An expansive front-to-back living room accesses the screened slate patio capped by a bead board ceiling. A comfortable great room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and connects to a covered mahogany porch overlooking the patio and fabulous views. 

Steps from the great room lead to an eat-in kitchen spacious enough to host large groups.  Outstanding design elements in the kitchen such as a gas fireplace surrounded by a carved mantel, custom cabinetry, granite-topped island and countertops and professional-grade appliances make this heart-of-the-home space especially memorable. Spanning from the front to the back of the home, the kitchen features a French door to the covered mahogany porch. Nearby is an adjacent home office and walk in pantry. 

Private and peaceful, the second floor master suite is designed with a walk-in closet and a luxurious marble master bath containing a shower, jetted tub, dual sink vanities and a separate water closet. Three more bedrooms, two additional baths--one of which is en suite-- and laundry facilities complete this level. 

The finished lower level encompasses a massive mud room with locker-style storage cabinets, an exercise room, media room with fireplace, half bath, second laundry room option, storage space and an oversized two-car garage. 

Complementing the property, a custom-built barn allows additional parking with two oversized garage spaces. The barn has a fully finished space on the second story complete with half bath, and is plumbed for future entertainment-friendly amenities.

About Mendham

Ranking first in New Jersey Monthly’s 2013 “Best Places to Live” survey, residents of Mendham Borough enjoy the historic setting of this quaint six-square-mile community--located in Morris County and surrounded on three sides by Mendham Township, with Bernardsville (Somerset County) to the south--plus the conveniences of a walkable downtown featuring boutique retail shopping and dining options, like the historic Black Horse Inn and Tavern. Other nearby stores located in the Village Shopping Center include a supermarket, pharmacy, and a hardware store as well as additional specialty retailers.  

Traditions abound in Mendham Borough, with annual events that bring residents together to meet and mingle.  Music is in the air during the summer concert series and outdoor movie nights, when neighbors picnic in Borough Park.  The annual Labor Day Carnival and Parade is capped off by fireworks that signals it’s back-to-school season.  In December, kids and adults alike bundle up and sip hot cocoa as they warm their hands at the annual 12th Night Bonfire of Christmas trees, organized by the volunteer fire department. 

Many children walk to the Borough’s public schools, Hilltop Elementary and Mountain View Middle School, greeted along the way by crossing guards whose smiles are familiar to all after their many years of service.  The West Morris Mendham High School is also located in Mendham, drawing students from Mendham Borough and Mendham Township, as well as the neighboring communities of Chester Borough, Chester Township and Washington Township.
