Mendham Twp. NJ

6 beds | 5.2 baths | 2.2 Acres | MLS/ID#: 9010125


Truly an American classic, this in-town Colonial on over two level acres juxtaposes a gracious time period with today’s lifestyle.  Spectacular grounds surrounded by white picket fencing form the approach to this one-of-a-kind home.  

A formal foyer with French door to the rear property can be seen beyond the entrance with its additional vestibule and side door to an office. The west wing leads to a formal living room anchored by a fireplace, which is open to the grand dining room featuring French doors to the patios.  A fabulous butler’s pantry facilitates entertaining and holiday meals, complete with restored original cabinetry and sink. Beyond, a beautiful country kitchen has been renovated to exacting standards which reflect the home’s time period while also appealing to modern cooks. Custom cabinetry, gourmet appliances, an island with second sink and a separate, spacious dining area are a few of the amenities.  Open to the kitchen is a charming and dramatic family room with pine built-ins, a stone fireplace and cathedral ceilings as well as French doors to back and side patios. 

A rustic stone floor leads to the second floor apartment offering a service kitchen, full bath, living room and bedroom. A mudroom, informal powder room and three-car garage complete this wing.  The east wing is discovered through an elegant hall accessing a second entrance to the office, a garden room with restored cabinetry and sink, and a formal powder room. This hall also opens to a stately and spacious paneled great room presenting a fireplace and two sets of double French doors to the patios.  Completing this wing is a wonderful second family room with fireplace, a side front entrance with stone vestibule offering doors to a covered patio overlooking the rear grounds, and a set of back stairs to the second floor.

The second story of this iconic property contains a sun-infused master suite, a master sitting room and a private master bath offering a separate shower and tub.  Four additional en suite bedrooms and a laundry complete this floor. An unfinished lower level is lined in authentic stone walls.

Outdoor amenities create a feast for the senses; lovely features include a heated in-ground pool and spa, stone and brick walls, covered bluestone patios and crushed stone paths meandering through a colorful variety of horticulture.

About Mendham

Mendham Township is situated in the southern part of Morris County, several miles from the county seat of Morristown and about an hour’s drive from New York City.  Brookside and Ralston—once known by its Native American name of Roxiticus--are long-established hamlets in this picturesque township, where winding country roads, vast estate properties and notable historic sites impart a decidedly rural feel. Mendham Township and the smaller Mendham Borough are commonly referred to simply as Mendham.  The township was founded in 1749 and measures about 18 square miles. 


People have been drawn to the natural beauty of Mendham Township for centuries; it has also been a more-recent home to notable residents including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, actor and star of the Game of Thrones television series Peter Dinklage, and the late singer Whitney Houston.
