Description

Custom Shingle Style on the Bernardsville Mountain

Flourishing in Newport and the Hamptons from the 1870s to the 1920s shingle style was architecture of fresh spirit and unbridled expansiveness. Cedar shingle and stone envelop the twelve-room home’s exterior. Its varying roof heights foreshow its diverse, soaring design. Interior spaces are gracious and imagined for understated comfort and ease. The two story foyer opens to the equally high gallery with floor-to-ceiling fireplace and expansive wall space for displaying art.  Transitioning seamlessly to the dining area, the grouping comprises the home’s free-flowing core—a staple of shingle style. Beautiful materials authenticate the period design: frame and panel wainscoting, extensive cherry and Brazilian hardwood floors, wide cherry staircases, simulated divided-light windows, marble and mahogany surfaces. In the beautifully designed kitchen, contrasting tones of cherry cabinetry and high end appliances add beauty and functionality. The adjacent turret-style breakfast room is a stunner! Other highlights of the home’s unique floor plan are spacious first-floor master suite with towering tray ceiling and sliding doors opening to the mahogany deck. In the master bath, light cascades from windows to marble surfaces, oversize vanities, jetted tub, steam shower and  fitted walk-in closets. The sunroom/office offers a window wall view to the rolling pastoral landscape. Upstairs, four additional bedrooms (one a potential second master suite) are each substantially sized and selectively accompanied with two walk-in fitted closets. Crisp, clean décor prevails in the updated baths. The versatile walk-out lower level features a large second family room with fireplace, game room, future wine cellar and abundant storage. Two sets of wide sliding glass doors open to the five-acre property’s meadow-sized lawns including a newly rebuilt pool. Further afield a large two-story barn supplements the residence’s attached three-car garage. While enjoying the private road setting, this offering is only moments from Bernardsville and Mendham’s town centers, daily conveniences, exceptional schools and Manhattan bound transportation.
