Understated Elegance in Storybook Setting Wood Duck Pond is nestled on 10 bucolic acres of open lawns and woodlands in sought after Far Hills. The home is perfectly set to enjoy the rolling topography and views over its pond and acreage. Tall pines line the driveway proceeding to the picture-book French Country inspired residence. Open lawns dip toward the pond with rising woodland just beyond. Tranquil views are enjoyed from the home’s expansive window walls and terraces. Further afield is the pool with a bluestone deck and low brick enclosure complementing this private parklike setting. A slate roof, stone and brick siding envelop the home. The main level allows for one floor living and together with the walk-out ground level comprise approximately 9000+/- square feet. As you enter the marble floored foyer flanked with a walk-in closet and powder room, the gallery hall continues to the start of the home’s multitude of double French windows. Along the way is the dramatic Living Room featuring an architecturally detailed vaulted ceiling, fireplace with marble surround, wainscoting and eye-catching windows ushering nature indoors. The floor is herringbone pattern oak and French doors open to the classically elegant upper bluestone terrace. The adjoining Dining Room repeats with detailed ceiling, window wall, oak floor and access to the terrace. The kitchen features include a gracious center island, walls of cabinetry, a breakfast area set in a bay of windows and a large walk in pantry. Continuing the main level is the cherry paneled Library presenting an artfully detailed vaulted ceiling, marble framed fireplace and direct access to the Primary Suite. The Suite enjoys picture window views, a dressing area comprising a hall of built-ins, two large custom fitted closets, step- in closets and two full baths. An octagon ceiling crowns the mahogany stairway descending to the home’s ground level. Here a wide gallery hall introduces the Family Room, again with window wall, a raised hearth fireplace, prominent ceiling beams and sliding-glass door opening to the lower terrace. A wing hosts two bedrooms with en suite baths, one with a sitting room and both with custom fitted closets and sliding doors opening to the lower terrace. Other spaces include an exercise room with mirror walls; bonus, laundry, and utility rooms; an immense storage room with double door exterior access. Tucked away on the home’s partial second level is a private suite with a fourth bedroom including full bath and closets. In the hall is a walk-in cedar closet and storage closet. The garage offers three bays, built-in storage, heating, and built-in vacuum. Rolling hills, grand estates and scenic farms characterize Far Hills Borough. Located approximately 40 miles from Manhattan, its residents enjoy a hometown where open space and natural beauty are priorities, education is top notch, and major social events such as the Far Hills Race Meeting and Music at Moorland draw spectators from near and far.
