Mendham Twp. NJ

4 beds | 4.2 baths | 3.01 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3531158


A stone wall borders the paver parking court at the majestic entry to this Georgian manor home.  A columned entry frames the handsome wood door embellished with lead glass transom and side lights.  Upon entering the home the quality of the craftsmanship and graceful décor are apparent. Light gleams off the marble floor of the grand foyer while the gracious butterfly staircase sweeps upward to the second floor. Formal living and dining rooms extend from either side through arched entry ways while the large family room lies ahead for an open and airy front to back floor plan.  The formal dining room offers extensive detailed moldings, a coffered ceiling and one of six fireplaces making it an ideal space for elegant dinner parties. The living room is anchored by a wood paneled fireplace with black marble surround and enjoys views of the manicured lawns through large windows. Crown, deep base moldings and French doors to the pine paneled library add to the architectural interest of the space. The family room is warmed by yet another fireplace family room with built-in bookcases and housing for a large screen television. This welcoming space opens to the conservatory where floor-to-ceiling windows fill the room with natural light with views to the private backyard with in-ground pool. The kitchen is the heart of this home; it contains exquisite custom furniture-grade cabinetry from Hampshire with a built-in maple china hutch designed with antiqued glass door fronts. This eat-in kitchen also offers premium granite countertop and high-end appliances with an extra prep sink and secondary dishwasher.  The kitchen alcove is ideal for the dining table and enjoying views of the rear yard while a cozy sitting area is nestled by the brick and wood paneled fireplace. Nearby is one of two powder rooms, an expansive laundry room with plenty of storage, and access to the five-bay heated garage with epoxy finish flooring.

A large upper hallway opens to the Master Bedroom Suite. This confluence of rooms includes a luxurious newly renovated master bath timelessly crafted with marble stone counters and white cabinetry, a bank of custom closets lining the dressing room which leads to an exercise area with sauna and generous soaking tub.  Two more generous bedrooms share a newly renovated bath while a third is on suite and all enjoy wood floors and large closets. Finishing this level is an additional large room with bath that is accessed by a secondary staircase.

The sweeping lawns are professionally landscaped and enjoy the privacy created by tall trees around the perimeter with a multitude of flowering specimen trees thoughtfully placed about lawns. The large patio is a tranquil place enhanced by a fountain for hours of serenity while the custom heated pool and spa with Tennessee stone coping and Coolcrete surround provide hours of enjoyment during the warmer months.  Additionally, the grounds offer a blacktop area for basketball and a tree house.

This custom home is sited on three-plus acres of land bordering hundreds of acres of parkland. Conveniently located just minutes from downtown, local schools, walking trails and a plethora of shopping, dining and cultural activities in nearby Morristown, this property also enjoys easy access to many commuting lanes and Midtown Direct train service to NYC.

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.
