More About This House

Even those for whom travelling Anderson Hill Road is not an infrequent occurrence will admit to having their gaze drawn right to left as they progress. The appeal is virtually magnetic. Prominent residences, some of Bernardsville Mountain’s finest, line the tree-canopied road. Beginning in the late 1800s and continuing to today, leaders of commerce and industry have found the area’s natural beauty and proximity to urban centers to be an engaging enticement.

Set back and perfectly positioned on 3.5 tranquil acres, the foundation for this residence dates to 1780. Two historically sensitive expansions over the years and a remarkable renovation in the early 2000s have resulted in a home infused with colonial charm and modern amenities.

A covered porch with slate flooring introduces the home’s bucolic demeanor. Step indoors to gleaming varied-width hardwood flooring, plentiful light dispersing windows, crafted period moldings and hardware. Arched entries introduce the sizeable living and dining rooms each with wood-burning fieldstone fireplaces.

Good design has been professed to be the creation of warm, inviting spaces while allowing for an element of the unexpected. Sophisticated and of the moment, the kitchen presents an unforseen contrast to the home’s traditional design. The ceiling soars allowing for a bridge spanning the home’s upper level. Windows stack. Clean lined, beautifully implemented natural materials deliver a modern, yet timeless, aesthetic. Steps away, the family room, a converted barn, continues the dramatic design with beams shaping trestles at the cathedral ceiling. Magnificent window walls allow views to the multi-depth pools. Indoors and out meld while nature creates an adagio of changing seasons.

Save for a fifth bedroom, en suite with half-bath and adjacent to a private entry, the home’s bedrooms are located on the second level. In the master suite, a loft with clerestory window tucks beneath the vaulted ceiling. A stone chimney, passing through the space from the main level, adds a rustic touch. Plantation shutters dress windows, a French door provides entry to the custom fitted, walk-in closet and the updated bath is pristinely white. Another renovated bath, handsomely contrasting white and darkly toned slate, services the additional three bedrooms.

Surrounding Area

A well-regarded public-school system, proximity to private schools, a network of highways and train service to New York from Bernardsville’s own depot, add to the community’s appeal. Newark International Airport is approximately 45 minutes by car. Exceptional equestrian facilities, golf courses, recreational and cultural opportunities abound in the area.

Recent Improvements

The chef's kitchen offers Sub-Zero French door refrigerator with freezer drawer, DCS dual fuel six-burner range with griddle and pizza oven, and breathtaking mahogany countertops.
A center island is outfitted with the same warm counters and provides seating for four. Updates include both the full Master Bath as well as the Hall Bath, each boasting historically accurate design features with today's amenities.
Multiple rooms have recently refreshed with new carpeting and paint.
