Stunning Custom Manor Surrounded by Nature   Nestled on over six acres at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this stately Manor home is located in an area cherished for its natural beauty. Fieldstone pillars and decorative wrought iron gates mark the secured entrance to this private estate.  Tall pine trees grace the landscape along one edge of the property. A paved drive leads to a wide parking court between the main residence and a detached three-car carriage house with a finished office suite on the second floor.     Professionally landscaped beds with flowering perennials and verdant boxwoods border a bluestone terrace which welcomes guests to the front entry. A wide deck spans the back of the house and overlooks a stunning woodland setting that includes a spring-fed pond located on a portion of the land.  The pond and an expansive rear lawns are framed by deciduous and evergreen trees, creating a private oasis showcasing natural beauty in all seasons.   This stunning residence was originally built in 1978. In 2009, a previous owner embarked on an extensive renovation.  The current owners completed portions of the prior work and undertook additional renovations in both the main house and carriage house in 2017.  Today, this 16-room residence features four finished levels of luxurious living space encompassing five bedrooms, seven full baths, a powder room and two fireplaces.    The first floor begins in a welcoming foyer that hints at the vastness of the floor plan. To the left lies an enormous family room connecting to a generous gourmet kitchen and adjoining wood-paneled living room. A formal dining room, powder room, laundry room, full bath and dog room/mud room complete the first floor.     On the second floor, an opulent four-room master suite occupies one wing.  The master closet was fitted by California Closets and leads to a hidden office with custom cabinetry topped in granite and fitted with filing drawers and space for office supplies. Three more bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, a homework room, and another full bath adjoin the hallway.  The staircase to the third floor leads to a landing that serves as a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.  This delightful space adjoins the fifth bedroom, which includes a sitting area and the privacy of an en suite bath.    The lower level features a billiards area, recreation room, exercise room, wine closet, game room, and storage.  Sliding doors provide access to a paver patio overlooking the rear lawn and pond.   This property is located in an established neighborhood of luxury homes. A top-ranked school system, close proximity to a network of highways and rail service to New York from Morristown or nearby Peapack-Gladstone add to the appeal of its location. Newark Liberty International Airport is approximately 35 miles to the east.

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.
