6 beds | 8.2 baths | 5.03 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3531521


This stunning custom residence is situated on over five lushly landscaped acres along a tranquil cul de sac on the Bernardsville Mountain. This home offers a resort-like setting with outdoor amenities that include a heated gunite pool edged by a brick and slate patio, a tennis court, paddle tennis court, turf batting cage and turf putting green. The multi-level mahogany deck spanning the rear of the home features a built-in barbecue grill, fire pit, outdoor television and a sound system also serving the pool area. A poolside mahogany dining portico warmed by four built-in heaters is complemented by the upper deck’s open air eating area and provides excellent year 'round entertaining space.

The detailed floor plan of the home offers approximately 12,000 square feet of well-designed living space. Arranged with six bedrooms, eight full and two half baths, the interior was graciously designed by Susan Tully Interiors of Summit. Highlights include seven custom fireplaces with unique mantles--many of which are marble, oak flooring with contrasting wood borders, intricate millwork, custom built-ins, two updated kitchens, updated baths and a guest apartment.

The octagonal entrance foyer provides a staircase edged by ornate wrought iron railings which serves all three levels. Stately formal living and dining rooms are each anchored by a carved marble fireplace. Richly toned wood paneling lines the fireside den. 

In the spacious chef’s kitchen, wood cabinetry is complemented by a granite-topped center island, stone floors and high-end appliances. Sunlight streams into the window-lined breakfast area opening to the generously-sized deck. Adjacent to the kitchen, the family room’s focal point is a fireplace and expansive views of the outdoors. A comfortable, private guest apartment contains a bedroom, sitting area, full bath and kitchenette.

Upstairs, the master suite offers a master bedroom fitted with two walk-in closets, dual spa-like bathrooms updated with details such as a steam shower and jetted tub, plus a wood-paneled home office. Three additional en suite bedrooms each have a walk-in closet and connect to an updated full bath.

The finished walk-out lower level boasts a fireside gathering area opening onto the pool, an entertaining kitchen, fully-equipped fitness studio, infra-red sauna, 1,000-bottle wine room, a recreation room with a small-scale basketball court, 1 bedroom and 2 full baths.
