Bernardsville NJ

6 beds | 4.1 baths | 8.64 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3499201


An exquisitely-designed estate situated on a private lane is just minutes from Bernardsville’s quaint village, award-winning schools and Midtown Direct trains. Approached by a gated entry, the long drive leads to a fieldstone custom Colonial; this handsome primary residence features six bedrooms and four-and-one-half baths. Also within the bucolic 8.64+/- acre setting is a smaller two-bedroom cottage, detached three-car garage with a separate workshop, newly re-built barn for storage, an old stone pumphouse and a small charming outbuilding.  Lushly landscaped, park-like grounds provide an additional sense of tranquility and privacy.

The main home presents an elegant open floor plan designed with chic, sophisticated gathering spaces throughout. Introducing the layout is a covered, columned entrance, where a front door crowned by a fanlight window opens into the grand two-story foyer. This majestic introduction has a curving staircase, plus marble tile flooring, detailed millwork and views into some of the principal rooms. The formal dining room is anchored by a faux marble fireplace, while transom-topped windows, an elegant crystal chandelier, deep moldings and tiger maple hardwood floors are additional gracious notes. A serene color palate in the living room is enhanced by picture windows, deep crown moldings and a transom-topped set of French doors connecting to the family room. The stone wall fireplace creates a stunning focal point in the coffered ceiling family room illuminated by custom chandeliers.  Continuing the open flow is a fireside study featuring a traditionally-mantled fireplace, built-in bookcases and oversized windows framing verdant country views. 

State-of-the-art amenities define an ultimate chef’s kitchen fitted with a center island, rich wood cabinetry, incredible millwork, and a sun-splashed dining area. Both the kitchen and family room access an entertainment-sized rear deck featuring a shady pergola, the perfect spot for outdoor gatherings. A covered breezeway leads to the detached three-car garage and workshop. Further amenities on the main floor include well-appointed powder, laundry and mud rooms. This level also contains a master wing comprised of a richly-accented master bedroom flanked by a columned sitting room and sumptuous master bath. The spa-like bath’s jetted platform tub is designed with four columns, two separate vanities and a huge frameless glass door shower. Two walk-in closets keep wardrobes well-organized.

Upstairs, a railed landing leads to five additional bedrooms and three full baths, all beautifully designed using magnificent amenities and an artistic eye. The lower level offers a generously-sized recreation room with wet bar and several storage and utility rooms.  Outbuildings include the two bedroom, one-and-one-half bath cottage with screened and covered porches and an attached one-car garage, which is tucked well beyond the main home. This stylishly updated bonus residence easily accommodates staff or a multi-generational living situation. 


Truly a rare offering in one of the state’s most-coveted locations, this sublime Bernardsville estate enjoys a central location in the Somerset Hills. Downtown Bernardsville is a quaint and historic village with fine dining, a movie theater, art galleries, boutiques, shopping centers, a seasonal Farmer’s Market and the NJ Transit train station for Midtown Direct service to Manhattan.  Fine public and private schools, parkland, country clubs, world class golf courses, upscale shops and cultural venues dot the region. Close proximity to Interstates 78 and 287 offers commuting convenience as well as access to the Atlantic Ocean beaches of the Jersey Shore and ski resorts in the northern part of the state. Newark Liberty International Airport is less than an hour from this desirable Somerset Hills location.
