Timeless Bernardsville Mountain Estate A sensitive restoration process preserved the legacy of a circa 1885 residence on the Bernardsville Mountain while adding modern designer touches to enhance the unique character of this historic estate. Set deep into five acres of open lawns and leafy woodlands, the striking angles of the stone and stucco facade are softened by lush ivy. Pitched rooflines, dormered windows, a cupola and wood shingle roof lend additional architectural interest. Enjoy serene outdoor living amid private grounds enhanced by bluestone terraces, a heated in-ground swimming pool, established gardens and countryside views. Parking is available in the attached garage or detached two-car carriage house featuring an upstairs office and full bath. Highlights of the bright, airy 15-room interior such as wide plank antique wood floors, towering ceilings, exposed wood beams, generously-sized rooms, three fireplaces accented by custom mantels, recessed lights, French doors and window walls grace the open, flowing layout. Introducing the home is a sun-splashed two-story front-to-back foyer designed with exposed beams and window walls on both ends. The living room’s focal point is a brick fireplace surrounded by an ornately carved wood mantel, while expansive windows, crown moldings, built-in bookcases and two charming window seats are also featured. In the dining room, wainscoting, crown moldings and a classic chandelier are artful design elements. Adjoining the dining room is a butler’s pantry with exposed fieldstone walls, a wine refrigerator and ample cabinetry. Built-ins, a wood-paneled accent wall and crown moldings distinguish the cozy library. The comfortable family room opens to the kitchen and has a rustic stone fireplace, wood beamed ceilings and tranquil views. Stunningly remodeled and filled with natural light, the center island kitchen presents beamed ceilings, high-end stainless steel appliances, custom countertops and a sunny dining area tucked into a floor-to ceiling window wall. A set of French doors in the kitchen opens to stone walled terraces overlooking the refreshing pool and grounds beyond. Completing this part of the home is a brick-floored mud room with door to the backyard, and a laundry room with full bath. Upstairs, peaked ceilings cap the primary bedroom which is warmed by the glow of a vintage wood mantel fireplace, while multiple walk in closets keep wardrobes organized. The marble-accented primary bath contains a soaking tub, clear glass enclosed shower and double sink vanity. In addition to the spacious primary, four sizable bedrooms and two full baths complete this level. On the lower level, a finished recreation area plus storage and utility rooms are further conveniences. The enchanting carriage house outbuilding contains a second story office and lounge space set under beamed cathedral ceilings and includes a full bath. Nearby is a charming stone building with full bath, currently an artist’s studio, called The Pottery. The Bernardsville Mountain is a storied part of the Somerset Hills, home to grand estates and bucolic scenery. This sheltered setting is minutes from interstate highways, the picturesque village of Bernardsville for fine dining, shops and Midtown Direct train service, as well as local schools, parkland, golf and equestrian facilities, recreation and cultural offerings. It is about an hour’s drive to Manhattan and approximately 45 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport.
