5 beds | 5.2 baths | 10.16 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3441803


Poised on the Bernardsville Mountain where it is surrounded by other grand estates, this impressive property is available for the first time since it was built in 1996.  Timelessly styled with a Bucks County Colonial feel, the stone and clapboard exterior is surrounded by well-established planting beds.  Sited on 10 acres, stone pillared gates mark the entrance. Approximately three acres are enclosed and professionally landscaped.  

Traditional in its layout, this center hall Colonial provides three levels of living space.  There are 10-foot ceilings and three fireplaces on the first floor.  Living and dining rooms both have tray ceilings and extensive millwork.  The handsome library presents a coffered ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and walls of built-ins. A two-story great room’s wood-burning fireplace and Palladian windows make it a welcoming gathering space.

Spacious and bright, the chef’s kitchen features a large center island and separate dining area.  Natural light streams in through window walls overlooking the deck and backyard. A back staircase leads to the second floor.  An expansive mud room with powder room and expansive walk-in closet is located near the garage entrance.

Each of the inviting bedrooms has an abundance of closet space.  The master bedroom suite offers a sitting room with fireplace, two roomy walk-in closets and a luxurious master bath.  Two additional bedrooms connect to private baths and the remaining two bedrooms share a full, connecting bath.  Completing this level is a convenient laundry and access to the walk-up attic, ideal for storage or possible future living space.

The walkout lower level designed with generous windows and French doors to the backyard offers a full bath and recreation room.  Just outside is a lush private garden with in-ground pool and spa.  This scenic property’s retreat-like atmosphere offers high levels of privacy and tranquility.

The spacious foyer features marble floors and flows into the formal living room to the left and formal dining room to the right. Extensive millwork and tray ceilings are features of both rooms. The great room boasts a cathedral ceiling, fireplace, extensive millwork and doors to the expansive deck. The gourmet kitchen features a large center island and spacious dining area.
