With access to New Jersey’s top schools, this exceptional home, set deep on beautifully landscaped grounds, offers peaceful living just minutes from the restaurants and mid-town direct in nearby Morristown and Madison.Situated on 3.6 manicured acres, the timber-frame custom home was designed with family and entertaining in mind and comfortably settled on serene grounds for privacy.
The gated estate includes two houses that offer an alliance of history with sophisticated contemporary living. The dramatic family house built in 2005 is complemented by the early 20 th century two-bedroom guest cottage once home to Harding Township’s first mayor.
Enter the main house, built facing west with an abundance of windows so that each room enjoys a wealth of sunlight. With surround sound and an open floor plan the home affords perfect flow for gatherings of friends and family.

Sliding doors in the dining room lead you to a charming covered bluestone patio, perfect for outdoor dining or relaxation.

A spacious first floor owner’s suite includes a dressing/sitting room, his-and-hers walk-in closets and a luxurious spa-like bath with walk-in shower, Jacuzzi tub and water closet.
The laundry room/pantry off the kitchen and a powder room complete the first floor.
The second floor offers a large loft area with an expansive view into the great room. It leads to three additional large bedrooms, all with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings; one with a French door that leads to a large terrace overlooking the spectacular grounds. Two full baths finish the upstairs.
