Mendham Twp. NJ

4 beds | 3.1 baths | 6.94 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3565813


Placed in the heart of nature, “Fiddlestix” is an enchanting countryside property.  A scenic drive along Union Schoolhouse Road reveals the beautiful North Branch Raritan River with its serene waterfall and rushing water sounds.  Adirondack chairs are placed at the foot of the river for relaxation and waterside views. 

A stone wall and white fence lead to the covered porch, a year 'round place to enjoy the tranquil environment.  Inside, an open concept kitchen features custom Shaker-style cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a center island with seating. This room is capped by a ceiling with exposed rough-hewn beams.  An expansive great room with radiant heat flooring and a wood-burning fireplace are complimented by a beamed cathedral ceiling.  Views from this space abound with the river to one side and the sparkling in-ground pool edged by natural surroundings to the other.  A cozy beamed ceiling family room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by natural stone.  Just beyond, a library with Stickley-style built-in cabinetry is adorned with an authentic stone wall.  A guest powder room, wide plank wood flooring and recessed lighting completes this floor.

The second level features two en-suite bedrooms.  A gracious master suite with sitting room, decorative oak-trimmed fireplace and split beams offers a relaxing space with mountain and river views as well as a French door to the private hot tub outside.  The master bath includes a soaking tub, shower and custom vanity.  A barn door separates the new custom closet and convenient laundry.  Another generous en-suite bedroom overlooks beautiful views and contains a walk-in closet and bath with shower over tub.  New sisal carpet is found throughout the second floor.

The third floor includes two more bedrooms and a hall bath with shower and wide plank flooring.

Taking advantage of the picturesque surroundings, a gunite pool soaks in natural views while pool storage is placed above the two-car garage.

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.
