Description

Majestic Estate-Caliber Residence

A refined stone front Colonial is sited on 1.35 scenic acres along a sheltered cul de sac in Basking Ridge. The flexible 4,750 square-foot layout is impeccably detailed on each of the home’s three finished levels. It presents five  bedrooms, five full baths and a powder room. Level, open and treed, park-like grounds present a refreshing in-ground pool edged by a colorful slate patio, a shade pergola and professional landscaping. 

The paver stone front walkway leads to a covered, columned entry opening into the grand entrance foyer. This two-story introduction contains a turned staircase, marble floors, dimensional wainscoting and sightlines into the main rooms. An elaborately-trimmed doorway frames a formal dining room featuring classic details such as chair rails, wainscoting, crown moldings and transom-topped windows. In the living room, crown and applied ceiling moldings make an elegant statement. The adjacent family room tucked under coffered ceilings is a dramatic gathering area anchored by a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace. 

Continuing the open floor plan is an epicurean kitchen designed with a spacious center island, crisp ivory cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The sunny breakfast room offers pool views from French doors to one of two rear decks. Enjoy verdant views from an enclosed back porch with stone tile floors, bead board ceilings and a door to the home’s second deck. A private study is served by a full, updated bath, creating a potential first floor guest suite. Completing the main level are a stylish powder room, a rear foyer/mud room and a laundry room with access to the yard.

Upstairs, four custom-painted bedrooms include a graceful master suite with a fireside bed chamber, ample closet space and a luxurious spa-inspired master bath. This indulgent oasis offers a jetted platform tub, two granite-topped sink vanities and a roomy shower stall. The two remaining bedrooms are connected by a full bath, while the second floor laundry is another convenience.

Additional living space on the lower level is arranged with a second family room, game room, exercise room, wet bar and full bath with an oversized clear glass door shower. Originally built in 2009, this regal Colonial displays pride of ownership throughout.

The Basking Ridge section of Bernards Township is located in the celebrated Somerset Hills, highly regarded for its equestrian properties, fine estate homes and countryside scenery. This historic area dates back to the pre-Revolutionary War era and has retained its small-town atmosphere for well over 200 years. Known for its excellent public and private schools, easy access to commuter routes and multitude of transportation options to New York City, Basking Ridge is a sought-after residential destination.

Bernards Twp. (Basking Ridge), NJ real estate market

Basking Ridge in Bernards Township has retained its small-town charm for over 200 years. Most of the shops, restaurants, and services along tree-lined South Finley Avenue are located in historic 19th-century houses. In fact, the downtown area has so much history that it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

Bernards Township was originally formed by Royal Charter as Bernardston Township. The name Bernards Township was given to the area in 1760 by King George II to honor Sir Francis Bernard, Provincial Governor of New Jersey from 1758 to 1760. It was incorporated as Bernards Township in 1798. Basking Ridge, Liberty Corner, Lyons, and West Millington are located within Bernards Township, while Martinsville is split between Bernards and Bridgewater Townships.

Even though maps indicate that Basking Ridge is a small commercial district in the northeast section of Bernards, about 95% of the township is referred to as Basking Ridge and has a Basking Ridge postal address. The only major parts of Bernards that do not have Basking Ridge addresses are the Veterans Administration Hospital in Lyons and Liberty Corner, a small historic district in the southern portion of the township.

The Bernards Township municipal building on Collyer Lane is housed in a circa 1912 brick Tudor mansion detailed with French pocket doors, maple and mahogany paneling, and marble fireplaces. The house and its 28 acres were sold to the township by John Jacob Astor VI for $140,000 in 1968.
