Extensively Updated Mendham “Deer Ridge” neighborhood Colonial

A classic Deer Ridge Colonial is sited on an acre of park-like grounds just outside the village of Mendham. The current owners have meticulously updated this inviting home with a long list of upgrades and design elements, lending a fresh new look to the interior. A sun-filled four bedroom, two full and two half bath layout presents comfortably stylish spaces for entertaining as well as everyday living.

Pride of ownership is evidenced by a host of recent updates including refinished hardwood floors on both levels; new kitchen appliances, backsplash and freshly-painted white cabinets; new windows in family room; a second walk-in closet in the master bedroom, plus heated floors and a new skylight in the master bath. Outdoor improvements include a new rear patio, dog fencing, extensive landscaping and tree work. Mechanical systems were upgraded with new air conditioning; new vents and automatic attic fans; a new heating controller; installation of a gas line to the kitchen range and generator hook-ups. 

A paved drive leads to this traditional Colonial edged by lushly landscaped grounds. The foyer is fitted with new contrast bordered oak floors, crown moldings and two coat closets. Adjoining the foyer is a living room with refinished hardwood wood flooring and numerous windows which fill the space with natural light. The dining room also has refinished wood floors, crown moldings and large windows. Casual get-togethers in the family room are warmed by the glow of a wood-burning brick fireplace and brightened by an expansive skylight and a series of three windows installed in 2018. 

The gourmet kitchen features oak hardwood floors, granite countertops, a new tumbled marble backsplash, freshly-painted white cabinets and an oversized pantry. A collection of newer stainless steel appliances includes a Thermador dishwasher, Frigidaire range, KitchenAid refrigerator with water dispenser and GE microwave. In the kitchen’s dining area, a bay window overlooks manicured views of the private backyard. Nearby is an office/mudroom with a chalkboard-painted wall, crown moldings, hardwood floors and a door to the patio. Hardwood floors continue in the laundry room with a folding counter and cabinetry. Completing the first level is an elegant powder room and access to the attached two-car garage.

Upstairs, the master bedroom contains two walk-in closets and refinished hardwood floors. The 2018 master bath has radiant-heated ceramic plank tile floors, a double sink vanity with white counter, two Kohler Verdera lighted mirrors, an extra-large walk-in shower and a large skylight. Three more bedrooms with refinished oak hardwood floors and ample closet space share a full bath in the hallway. 

Finished space in the basement is enhanced by Berber carpeting and beadboard walls; this level offers an exercise room set behind French doors, a recreation room with built-in bookcase and two closets, a media room with window seat, a powder room plus storage and utility rooms.
