Description

Infused with character and historic appeal, The Cooper House, circa 1736, sits tucked away on a serene cul-de-sac.  Set on over five-and-a-half acres of professionally landscaped grounds, the estate boasts a five-bedroom, 4.2-bath home, replete with a fully-appointed guest suite, and two captivating barns that complete the bucolic landscape.

The home is adorned with a handsome melding of fieldstone, stucco, and wood shingle, and topped with a slate roof.  An original Dutch door entry gives way to the home’s Living Room and sets a tone of historic charm.   Aesthetically notable details such as deep windowsills, wide board floors, hand hewn beams, and an original stone-cooking fireplace enhance the ornate architecture of the home.  A pub room fitted with reclaimed English Oak paneling and an expansive family room with a wall of built-ins offer various areas for both respite and entertaining.

A spacious dining room, embellished with a wall of exposed stone, gives way to the main kitchen. Offering both antiquity and modern convenience, the kitchen features a soapstone sink, countertops crafted from marble, butcher block and bluestone, stone flooring with radiant heat, and professional appliances from the likes of Garland and SubZero; the result is a country kitchen fit for today’s epicure.  The space continues into a Breakfast Room custom fitted with French Boiserie paneling from Pierre Deux and windows that offer a view of the private grounds.  A side door opens out onto a picturesque brick terrace and makes for seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining.  

The second floor of the home features five bedrooms, four full baths, and a sitting room.  Replete with original pine flooring and a fireplace with wood mantel and brick hearth, the Master Bedroom is a charming retreat.  A Master Bath with a jetted soaking tub, stall shower with tile surround, and recessed lighting complete the room.  

The living space continues with an exceptional third level accessed via a wrought iron spiral staircase in the upstairs stone gallery.  Two storage rooms, a half bath, and an office occupy this floor. 

A full Guest Suite hosting an additional bedroom and bathroom, an expansive Great Room with cathedral ceiling, wood mantel fireplace, kitchen, and a private entrance and patio, occupies the space over the attached three-car garage.

The grounds boast perennial gardens, a small pond, stone walls, and a cobblestone driveway. Two barns?a stone barn with a cedar shake roof and a traditional red barn equipped with a stone floor and two stalls, complete this magnificent property.

About Mendham

Mendham Township is situated in the southern part of Morris County, several miles from the county seat of Morristown and about an hour’s drive from New York City.  Brookside and Ralston—once known by its Native American name of Roxiticus--are long-established hamlets in this picturesque township, where winding country roads, vast estate properties and notable historic sites impart a decidedly rural feel. Mendham Township and the smaller Mendham Borough are commonly referred to simply as Mendham.  The township was founded in 1749 and measures about 18 square miles. 

 

People have been drawn to the natural beauty of Mendham Township for centuries; it has also been a more-recent home to notable residents including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, actor and star of the Game of Thrones television series Peter Dinklage, and the late singer Whitney Houston.
