45 Ironia Road, Mendham Boro NJ - Real Estate Homes for Sale
Step back in time to an enchanting circa 1730s stone bank house overlooking two spring-fed ponds and a stone spring house capped by a thatched roof. Surrounded by stone walls and English gardens, numerous artisans were employed to retain the home’s original character, and the result is a well-appointed and completely charming residence. Three levels of living space contain wonderful details such as three working fireplaces, Dutch doors and deep-set windows. The main floor’s living room presents wide plank floors, rustic ceiling beams and an original beehive oven with crane in the fireplace. Cozy up with a book in the intimate study featuring built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases, wall sconces and an exposed stone wall. The kitchen’s custom cabinets were designed to look antique, finished in soft patina of yellow and green tones. There is also a center island, fireplace and French doors opening to the patio for outdoor dining. Completing the first level is a powder room, mud room with built-in cabinets and wine cellar housed in a former coal storage room. An open hallway on the second floor reveals the expansive billiards room. Across the hall is an inviting family room anchored by a working fireplace. Master and guest bedrooms are also located on this level. The master offers a walk-in closet and private entrance to the side yard. A lavish master bath is appointed with a large tub, separate shower, dual vanities and skylights which fill the space with natural light. The guest bedroom with dual closets connects to an en suite bath. On the third floor are three more bedrooms and a full bath. Wide plank floors and wrought iron hardware throughout complement the home’s authentic country feeling. This storybook stone home sits on over four picturesque acres with two spring- fed ponds and a stream, professionally landscaped English gardens edged by stone walls and a custom-created bridge covered in fragrant wisteria. Two barns on the property present garage parking for seven cars, and both barns have ample storage lofts. Tranquil views of the ponds, gardens and stone walls can be viewed from nearly every room in this historic Mendham Borough home. Conveniently situated for in-town shopping and dining, this home is a short distance from Routes 206, 202 and 287 for commuters. Mendham has long been prized for its rural beauty, yet is centrally located about an hour from Newark Liberty International Airport and New York City.
