Far Hills Boro NJ

5 beds | 7.1 baths | 18.52 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3418608


Reminiscent of the classic estate homes found in the Somerset Hills, a stately Georgian Colonial manor looks as if it’s always been on its verdant 18+ acre site, yet this timeless design was created in 2007. Approached by a long drive marked by massive stone columns which leads to the covered and columned portico entry, the first impression of this brick manor is memorable. Inside, high levels of detail characterize the 17-room floor plan of five bedrooms and six-and-one-half baths. A two-story barn set on level, gently rolling property offers potential for equestrian use.

Traditional architectural lines are capped by a slate roof and feature two open-air covered porches edged by regal white columns. Within the acreage is a two-story barn, a pond, stream, in-ground swimming pool, tennis court and guest cottage. Approximately 13 acres are farmland assessed.

Outstanding design elements include lustrous hardwood and marble floors, four fireplaces, intricate moldings, dimensional woodwork, custom built-ins, arched room openings, high ceilings and a wet bar. Introducing the home is a circular vestibule opening to the main entrance hall. Here, a majestic floating staircase, window wall, wainscoting, and egg and dart crown moldings are exceptional details. 

To the left of this entry hall, a formal living room contains a fawn marble gas fireplace and atrium door to the bluestone patio. At the end of the hall, transom-topped arched French doors open to a side covered bluestone porch with columns. The banquet-sized dining room is set under a tray ceiling with interior moldings and anchored by a marble gas fireplace. An adjoining butler’s pantry presents custom cherry wood cabinets, a wine refrigerator, granite countertops and a copper sink. The main floor also offers a fireside cherry library with custom cabinetry tucked behind double pocket doors. 

Outstanding design features in the chef’s kitchen include custom cabinets, a tiered center island topped in granite, tumbled marble backsplash, and a collection of upper-end appliances. The adjacent cherry wood family room contains a coffered ceiling, a marble gas fireplace, built-in entertainment center and door to the bluestone porch.

A home office is adjacent to the dog room. Nearby, a stylish full bath enhances the elegant powder room at the entrance. Completing the first level are ample storage closets, a walk-in pantry, mud room, and access to the three-car garage.

Upstairs, a gracious master suite has a tray ceiling bed chamber, an intimate sitting room, and an oversized walk-in closet. Spa-like amenities in the tray ceiling master bath include a limestone floor with decorative brass inserts, jetted tub surrounded by limestone, a limestone stall shower, furniture-style double sink vanity with limestone countertops and private water closet.  

There are four additional en suite bedrooms connecting to a full bath. Another convenience is the second story laundry room. The lower level includes a recreation room with 11-foot ceilings, an exercise room and  full bath. 

The Entry Foyer features curved walls, two guest closets & entrance to the formal powder room. A fireplace anchors the Living Room w/views of specimen plantings. Another fireplace highlights the Dining Room which has intricate moldings & arched windows. Butler's Pantry with wine cooler is adjacent. Custom built-ins & a fireplace accent the Library. A fireplace & handsome cherry wood paneling are features of the Family Room which opens to the Designer Kitchen. A full bath, office/bedroom & mudroom complete the first floor.
