Located on one of Basking Ridge’s prettiest streets, with sweeping estate properties and towering trees, this superb custom-built home offers prospective buyers many amenities, both inside and out. A cedar-shake roof, transom windows, vaulted ceilings, and true-divided light windows are just some of the appurtenances that make this house special. The entrance foyer with two coat closets and inlaid hardwood floor sets a gracious tone. Following a traditional center-hall configuration, the dining room, with chair rail and crown molding, and the elegant living room, whose fireplace wood mantel is embellished with old-style decorative milling, flank the hall. The impressive double-story family room is large and light, featuring a wood-burning fireplace with raised hearth and stone chimney at one end, and built-in cabinets at the other. The wood-paneled first-floor library with a marble fireplace offers a quiet sanctuary, with one of the home’s two powder rooms near-by.
Hardwood floors extend to the wonderful, bright kitchen and breakfast area, whose many enhancements include an island with seating and custom tile backsplash. A walk-in food pantry and a butler’s pantry will meet all the needs of family and entertainment. The showpiece of the bedroom level—with three full baths and a laundry room— is the master wing. A spacious sitting room and double doors to the dressing area and sky-lit bathroom with Jacuzzi make this an eye-catching suite of rooms. Also on this level are three additional spacious bedrooms, and a bonus room featuring built-in bookcases and a charming window seat, for use as recreation room or as part of a guest suite. Separate stairs to the kitchen offer private access. Enjoy the walled garden and park like setting of this 2+ acre property from the two South American ipé decks or the wonderful New England-style screened porch. Offering a wealth of extras, such as an irrigation system for the rear plantings , multi-zone security, as well as an oversized 3 car garage, this lovely home, boasting a Far Hills mailing address and the highly-rated Basking Ridge schools, is hard to beat.
