Welcome to an extraordinary Williamsburg-style Colonial located in Mendham Township’s natural and peaceful Oak Knoll section. This traditional home is situated on five park-like acres surrounded by tranquil views. Amazing architectural details give the interior an antique feel yet it still incorporates all of today’s most sought-after amenities.

From here, a gracious entryway opens to an authentic front-to-back center hall.  It's a spacious, inviting foyer containing the sweeping stairway. High ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, wainscoting, picture frame and crown moldings lend character to first floor gathering areas.  The formal living room is detailed with a wood-burning fireplace, custom built-in cabinetry and an abundance of windows to let the afternoon light in.  On the opposite side of the center hall is a generously-sized formal dining room featuring custom built-in corner cabinets with glass fronts. The home’s second wood-burning fireplace is located in the library, where walls of floor-to-ceiling moldings and custom bookcases create a cozy sitting room, office or reading room. A stylishly renovated powder room combines a mix of antique and contemporary design elements.

There is a spacious family room offering a built-in desk and large windows overlooking the backyard.  This room flows to the renovated kitchen designed with soaring cathedral ceilings and dual skylights for an abundance of natural light over the huge mahogany island with breakfast bar seating. The kitchen also features black granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, radiant-heated tile floors and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances plus a paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator.  Views of the yard are framed by sliding glass doors and a secondary back door.  Adjoining the kitchen is a fully-equipped butler’s pantry with a glass backsplash, second dishwasher, wet bar and under counter refrigerator.  Also connecting to the kitchen is a utilitarian mud room with a brand new washer and gas dryer, Corian countertops and an under mounted sink.  It is also features built-in coat racks, a bench with storage and a pantry closet.  The mudroom accesses a two-plus car garage with high ceilings, windows and storage space.  From the garage there is access to the basement, attic and backyard.

Upstairs are five expansive bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, deep baseboards, crown moldings and double closets.  The two hallway bathrooms are updated and serve four bedrooms. The master bath was completely renovated in 2018 with radiant-heated tile floors, a double vanity, custom light fixtures and an oversized shower with open walls.

Perfect for entertaining in all seasons, the backyard contains an extensive brick patio surrounded by lush landscaping and perennial flower beds.  The built-in gas barbecue and covered porch with bluestone flooring and a ceiling fan invite al fresco dining.  Once the weather cools off, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace is a welcome part of this living and entertaining space enhanced by a lush yard and private, wooded setting.

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.
