For more information, visit: goo.gl/342WX5 Exquisite Country Estate on the Bernardsville Mountain A renovated estate home on the Bernardsville Mountain experienced a recent restoration process that addressed design and mechanical aspects of this gracious “Connecticut Colonial” residence situated amid over 11 acres of lush privacy. The four bedroom, five-and-one-half bath layout was upgraded with all new baths, a new chef’s kitchen, refinished hardwood flooring and fresh paint inside and out. Other major improvements include a comprehensive new roof system, new Andersen windows and doors, a re-built brick walkway and brick steps, plus upgraded plumbing and electrical systems. The intense nine-month project also included enhancements to the home’s construction and architecture. As a result, this appealing residence has been restored to its former midcentury luster, a place where expansive gathering and entertaining spaces are filled with timeless features and an abundance of natural light. Among the finer points of its 5,100+ square-foot interior are three fireplaces, gleaming hardwood floors, exquisite millwork, custom built-ins, oversized windows, a wet bar, high and beamed ceilings, exposed brick wall and a neutral color palette which serves as an ideal backdrop for any design scheme. The covered front porch and original Dutch door are charming introductions to this welcoming home. Generously-sized principal rooms fan out from the grand entrance foyer to reveal a formal fireside living room edged in classic trim and family room anchored by a brick fireplace. Of special note is the all-new designer center-island kitchen featuring Crown Point ivory-toned cabinetry, quartz countertops, and upper-end appliances from Sub-Zero, Bosch and KitchenAid. Also on the main floor is a sophisticated master bedroom connecting to a sun-splashed sitting room/library with built-in bookcases and two spa-like master baths. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms, a loft area, bonus room, laundry room and two new bathrooms. Outside, wonderful entertaining spaces such as a heated in-ground pool surrounded by a brick pool deck, stone and brick walls, upgraded landscaping, a tennis court, open porches, terraces of blue stone, an outdoor grill/fireplace, granite block curbs, mature trees and winter views make this tranquil Bernardsville Mountain property even more magical. The borough may permit the addition of a barn and cottage due to the amount of acreage.
