Green Hill Farm is a beautifully-appointed circa 1860 farmhouse sited on approximately five acres in charming Mendham Borough with a spring-fed pond, stream and landscaped gardens. This jewel box of an antique home was part of a larger estate owned by many prominent Mendham families. Today, the updated and expanded residence combines historic design elements and modern qualities. Outstanding features include ten-foot ceilings, true divided light windows, antique wide board floors, hand hewn beams, two gas fireplaces and interior stone walls. From the rocking chair front porch to the sweeping lawns, towering evergreens and gothic arched garage doors, there is abundant appeal inside and out. 

The inviting 13-room residence spans over 5,530 square feet with five bedrooms, five full and two half baths. Rooms on the main floor flow gracefully from the entry foyer fitted with wood flooring, custom dentil molding and an ornamental ceiling medallion in an acanthus leaf design. The adjoining living room has a handsome gas fireplace with onyx hearth and surround and bay window. Two sets of French doors open into the sun room designed with transom-topped window walls, a coffered ceiling built-in mahogany bar, antique marble flooring and access to the side patio from a French door. 

The elegantly-appointed dining room with Venetian plaster walls and French doors to the side patio adjoins the living room. The cozy library features handsome wainscoting, custom built-in shelving and cabinetry, and a side door opens to the patio. Adjoining the library is an en suite bedroom with large floor-to-ceiling windows and painted narrow board floors. 

Highlights of the gourmet kitchen include high-end appliances, Shaw’s Original farm sink, granite countertops, custom backsplash with imported European tiles and under cabinet and tray lighting. There is also a center island with granite countertop, storage cabinetry and prep sink. Additional appointments include hand hewn ceiling beams and antique wood flooring. The nearby butler’s pantry provides a farm sink, dishwasher, cabinetry and wine refrigerator. Open from the kitchen is a vaulted ceiling family room featuring a stone gas fireplace with hand-hewn beam mantle, antique wood flooring, tray lighting and wide shiplap wall detail. Completing the main floor is the pantry/mud room with built-in bench seat, access to the two-car garage, and two stylish powder rooms; one with stone walls to the chair rail and stone floors. 

Upstairs, a sophisticated master suite is comprised of a bedroom, dressing room and master bathroom. The large master dressing room contains a charming window seat, custom cabinetry, shoe shelving and a large center island with drawers. This space leads to the master bathroom featuring a free-standing soaking tub, console sink and shower stall with frameless door, subway tiles, rain shower head, Perrin & Rowe nickel hardware and marble flooring. The floored storage attic is accessed from the dressing room and offers a cedar closet. There are two additional en suite bedrooms on the second floor. The fifth bedroom is accessed by a stairway located near the pantry/mud room. This generous space has a coffered ceiling, window walls and en suite bathroom. A dedicated exercise space and ample storage on the lower level complete this timeless residence.
