This 5.147 acre property is situated on one of Mendham Township’s most coveted country roads. Custom fencing and a long tree-lined driveway mark the entrance to this bucolic setting, while deer fencing and grating protect the professionally landscaped grounds. The paved driveway widens as it approaches the residence, circles past the house and ends in a wide parking court in front of an attached four to six-car garage. Stone pavers outline the driveway and accent the parking area in front of the house. Curved fieldstone walls and maintenance-free fencing frame the lawn and manicured gardens that beautify the exterior façade. The gardens wrap around the house and continue along the back, where they are enjoyed from a covered porch and a wide bluestone terrace that is shaded by a retractable awning. More than 200 trees have been planted throughout the property, amidst beds of flowering shrubs and perennials. A two-stall barn with a studio and adjoining paddock offers the potential for equestrian pursuits.
The current homeowners purchased the property in the summer of 2010. Together with a team of celebrated local professionals, they embarked on a renovation that was nothing short of miraculous given the time span of two years. The exterior of the house was completely renovated using Hardie Board siding, custom wood shutters, wood shingle and metal roofing, copper accents and reproduction copper gutters and leaders. The first floor includes the original foyer adjoining the formal living and dining room, while the back of the residence was enlarged to encompass a gourmet kitchen, breakfast room, family room and covered porch. The wing to the garage now offers a guest suite, office and a laundry room.
Upstairs, two additional bedrooms share a renovated hall bath, while the master suite adjoins a newly constructed bathroom with luxurious appointments. New Marvin windows fitted with plantation shutters complement the traditional architecture of the home. The design of the original residence has been enhanced with handsome millwork, antique reproduction light fixtures, new wide plank pumpkin pine floors and numerous architectural details that blend beautifully to create a classic home with timeless appeal.
