Here is an opportunity to live amid picturesque serenity in one of Mendham’s most-coveted neighborhoods. A classic yet custom home is perfect for discerning buyers. This Queen Anne Colonial was designed by noted New Jersey architect Roger Roberts and skillfully built by Sterling Homes in 2001. Beautifully situated on a private 16+ acre lot, the grounds contain a sweeping front lawn, babbling brook and mature professional landscaping. This property offers luxury living and sheltered privacy from its location along a private cul-de-sac.
This sophisticated home was created using high-end materials and features including a deep-set bluestone front porch with beadboard ceiling, a stone façade, leaded glass transom and sidelight windows, custom millwork and cabinetry and hardwood flooring.
An open double height foyer with marble floored vestibule and glass lantern lends a sense of grandeur to the entrance. A leaded glass transom entryway with beveled glass pocket doors leads from the foyer into the handsomely-appointed family room. This coffered ceiling space has a wood-burning fireplace with carved wooden mantel flanked by tall bookcases. The family room’s window wall floods the space with natural light and offers views of the patio, outdoor fireplace and kitchen.
Every imaginable amenity graces the chef's kitchen adorned with a beadboard ceiling, large blown glass lanterns, pot rack, Smallbone-style custom cabinetry, granite countertops and professional grade stainless steel appliances, plus an Aga stove. There are six ovens and four gas burners with plate warmer along with an electric Viking wall oven, Miele dishwasher, paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer and two stainless steel sinks. For everyday ease there are two Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers along with Fisher and Paykel double dishwasher drawers. An adjacent butler’s pantry connects to the formal dining room.
Special occasions take on extra significance in the spacious dining room with custom moldings, wood paneling, inlay wooden floor border and ornate wooden fireplace mantel. Across the foyer tucked behind beveled glass pocket doors is the living room; this would be a perfect place for a billiards room, as it opens to an intimate bar with a tin ceiling. The living room and bar areas both have entrances to the covered porch, providing a relaxed atmosphere.
The home office near the family room has French door access to the side yard and indoor pool. Enjoy this low-maintenance pool year ‘round. It offers a waterfall, jets, a vaulted ceiling and tile floors. Doors on either side can be opened in warm weather to let the outside in.
The stunning wraparound staircase leads to the second floor where Queen Anne-style windows frame splendid views of the front lawn and wooded areas. The second floor landing is enhanced with arched doorways and light sconces.
The master bedroom offers gorgeous views of the front property, a wood-burning fireplace with wood carved mantel and marble surround, and an adjacent sitting room. Luxury appointments in the large master bathroom include a generous shower with multiple jets, double marble-topped sinks, a jetted tub, separate water closet and three spacious walk-in closets. Completing the second floor are four additional bedrooms and four full baths, a laundry room, and rear staircase to the first floor mud room.
