Featured Listing: 45 School House Lane, Morris Township/Strawberry Fields

June 29, 2016 Turpin Real Estate

Heritage details, expansive gathering areas and a variety of modern updates combine at Strawberry Fields, a landmark Morris Township property sited on over seven scenic acres. The French manor architecture blends in artfully with manicured surroundings and central courtyard showcasing the front entrance. Inside, an open floor plan of 8,100 square feet offers five bedrooms, seven full baths and two powder rooms.

Strawberry Fields was first constructed in 1929 and still retains many timeless aesthetics from that era such as six fireplaces, handsome wood-paneled rooms, coffered ceilings and charming built-ins. In 1998, Peter Dorne of Morristown—one of the area’s premier architects and builders—increased the footprint of this grand manor with an addition that is a seamless complement to the original part of the home.

Refined and stylish, the sunny 14-room layout contains an updated chef’s kitchen reflecting the home’s French Normandy design influences, a luxurious master suite adjoining a spa-like bath, inviting formal and informal spaces, a third story bonus room and a finished lower level. Outside, the heated pool, spa and lush grounds create an idyllic backdrop for warm weather entertaining.

A gracious carriage house on the acreage includes a bedroom, kitchen, two full baths, a game room and attached three-car garage. Of special note is a garden potting room adjoining the porte-cochère entrance. This one-of-a-kind space is centered by an ornate floor-to-ceiling wood-burning brick fireplace detailed with carved stone relief and decorative corbels. Truly a majestic estate property for sale in Morris Township, Strawberry Fields is a rare Morris County estate home for sale.
