New England Allure at Coveted Hedgerows 

Set amongst the gentle rolling hills of southeast Chester, The Hedgerows, is a community of luxury homes recalling the allure of a New England village. Each individually unique, these charming reproduction colonials feature nuanced New England period details, fine craftsmanship and today’s most desired amenities. The neighborhood of 39 homes, built on spacious landscapes, would come to be coveted for its rustic beauty and balance of neighborliness and privacy. 

Attracted to Hedgerows’ engaging attributes, the owner of this offering, a luxury builder, chose to create his own colonial interpretation. Poised on almost 2 acres, a circular driveway winds past the lushly landscaped, cedar-clad residence. Indoors 12 gracious rooms feature classic architectural trim, banks of tall windows, solid doors, select limestone floors. A cathedral ceiling and skylights add volume and light in the family room. Wood Mode cabinetry flanks the room’s floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Custom Wood Mode cabinetry, accompanied with granite countertops, appears again in the kitchen including a center island with carved, lighted canopy. The appliances are professional grade. Doors slide open from the breakfast area to the bluestone patio. 

Upstairs the master suite includes a bath with cathedral ceiling and skylights, extra-long marble topped Brookhaven vanity, Jacuzzi, limestone shower and floor. Villeroy & Boch tile adds a posh touch to one hall bath and Carrara marble to the 2018-updated other. Three additional bedrooms complement this level.

Recreation, craft and exercise rooms as well as an office and handsomely updated bath preside on the lower level. A stairwell continues to the three car-garage. Among the home’s mechanicals are multi-zone radiant heat and air conditioning, 350-amp electric, 12-zone irrigation and a 17kW generator.

The Hedgerows is but one of several magnificent estate communities that have come to dot the rolling hills, serene fields and winding roads of Chester in recent years. The attraction is hardly surprising. Chester offers highly regarded public schools, a selection of nearby private schools and a full service public library. A walk down its historic main street reveals charming antique stores, boutiques and venues for fine country dining. Nearby the contemporary Streets of Chester is home to nationally recognized retailers. Yet only moments away Route 206 whisks residents to a network of major highways and the urban world beyond.

About Chester Township

When talking about Chester in southwestern Morris County, you need to distinguish between the Borough of Chester, which is the shopping village, and Chester Township, the surrounding area which is decidedly more rural. At about 1½-square miles, the borough is located at the intersection of Routes 206 and 24 and offers quaint streetscapes lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques, antique shops and restaurants. Chester Township includes 29.8 square miles of farmland, newer residential developments and historic homes.

Incorporated in 1799, over 40%--or 12 square miles--of the township is preserved as open space. There are nature reserves, parks and deed-restricted agricultural property under the state Farmland Preservation Program, which buys the development rights while allowing the farmer to retain title and continue working the land.

The Borough of Chester was incorporated in 1930, and is a separate municipality that shares many services with the township such as a library, first aid squad, fire department, community pool, athletic programs, civic organizations and schools.
