Gloriously Restored Craftsman in Downtown Bernardsville
A gorgeous circa 1921 Craftsman style home in downtown Bernardsville has been completely re-built using authentic reproduction design elements inside and out. This architectural style is synonymous with clean lines, simple silhouettes and an abundance of natural hardwood flooring, trim, cabinetry, doors and wall panels. Filled with character, the open floor plan offers four bedrooms, four full baths and a powder room on three finished levels. The detached three-car garage features an unfinished bonus room loft for future living space.
Set on about 1/3-acre of professionally landscaped property, this spectacular home is finished in low maintenance HardiePlank siding, Azec trim and a metal and wood shingle roof with copper vents and valleys. A covered front porch entrance and rear patio take in lush views of the manicured grounds.
Highlights of the impressive layout include gleaming hardwood floors, custom wood doors, intricate wood trim, wood cabinetry, recessed lights and well-appointed living spaces throughout. Entered by a charming foyer, a staircase to the upper and lower levels comes into view. Leading from this inviting entry is a sun-filled living room and dining room combination designed with uniquely-trimmed ceilings, period-style windows and wood floors. ,
The chef&rsquo,s kitchen adjoins the dining room and presents granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom wood cabinetry, a tumbled marble backsplash and a tray ceiling. There is a separate wall of ivory-toned cabinets topped in granite, plus a guest bedroom with adjacent full bath, powder room, laundry room and home office/sitting room. ,
Upstairs, a railed landing overlooks the living room below. This level presents a tray ceiling master bedroom fitted with crown moldings and Berber-type carpet. In the master bath, two furniture-grade granite-topped vanities, a claw foot tub and a walk-in shower enclosed by a glass door are exceptional details. Two more spacious bedrooms share another full bath.
The finished lower level contains a brick wine cellar with a tasting room or brick-walled study, expansive family room and full bath. Outside, the huge three-car garage outbuilding replicates the home&rsquo,s architectural style, it has carriage house doors and an unfinished loft with electric service, water connection and dormered windows. ,Located a few blocks from Midtown Direct trains, this historic home is a rare offering in the Somerset Hills. Downtown Bernardsville is a quaint village with fine dining, a movie theater, art galleries and a seasonal Farmer?s Market. Excellent public and private schools, country clubs, world class golf courses, upscale shops and cultural venues dot the region.
