Mendham Boro NJ

4 beds | 3.1 baths | 10 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3416379


A special offering in Mendham Borough, this thoughtfully renovated antique Colonial farmhouse is situated on ten  acres along a bucolic country road.  Introducing the home is a stone paver walkway leading to a delightful covered front porch, where pond and fairway views of Roxiticus Golf Club enhance the scenery. An expansive rear bluestone patio and paver patio off the kitchen overlook open lawns, mature deciduous trees and rolling countryside panoramas. A tar and chip driveway connects the attached two-car garage and detached two-car garage, creating an ample parking court.  

The covered porch entry reveals a sunny foyer featuring the home’s original side staircase and a powder room tucked into a corner. A wide hallway leads to the spacious country kitchen, dining and family rooms, home office and back staircase. The center island kitchen is designed with a breakfast area, custom cabinetry, built-in desk, pantry, Corian countertops, tile backsplash and floor, a skylight and sliding glass doors to the patio. Nearby are a laundry room and access to the garage. The formal living and dining rooms separated by beveled glass French doors are detailed with crown moldings and wood floors.  The handsome office has wide plank pumpkin pine floors and views of the side lawn. A generously-sized family room anchored by a floor-to-ceiling brick facade fireplace also contains towering windows and a sliding glass door to the bluestone patio, reinforcing the home’s strong indoor/outdoor connection.

Upstairs are a master suite offering a large private bath, a second en suite bedroom, two additional bedrooms, a full bath in the hallway and a walk-in closet/luggage room.  The partially finished basement is arranged with a game room and a huge recreation room.  A whole house generator and central air conditioning provide comfort throughout the year. This farmland assessed property enjoys a treasured Mendham location close to village shopping, schools, dining and transportation options.

The spacious floor plan in this updated Colonial features expansive rooms and two sets of stairs leading to the second floor. The original entry blends into a wide hallway that adjoins a powder room and an office. The kitchen was expanded to offer informal dining and access to the attached two car garage and laundry room. The great room features a fieldstone fireplace and sliding doors to the terrace. A formal dining room and a large living room adjoin the great room. The master suite and a guest suite were part of the renovation. Two more bedrooms and a third full bath complete the second floor.

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.
