Property descriptionThe Carriage House at "Westways" Morris Township, New Jersey This enchanting gem was once the stable and garage on the country estate known as 'Westways.' The original estate was built in 1920 by William Armstrong Fairburn and is the work of the renowned architect Harrie T. Lindeberg. Lindeberg is accredited with being a leader of the American Country House Era, and many of his homes were designed for America's leading families in the early 1900's. His legacy lives on in homes that convey a sense of gracious ease and restrained elegance - features that can still be found at 'Westways.' The Tudor mansion has been beautifully restored and remains a neighbor to its original stable. The land was subdivided long ago and the stable and garage were renovated into a historically charming carriage house. Lindeberg's influence and whimsy are still evident in the antique brick faade, the steep pitch of the slate roof and a floor plan that interacts beautifully with the landscape. This 1.52-acre property is situated on a cul-de-sac in the desirable Spring Brook section of Morris Township. A paved driveway along one side of the house leads to a detached barn-style garage with a covered porch entry and space for two vehicles. Bluestone walkways lead from the garage to the house, and from the house to a lovely courtyard garden, where original brick walls have been enhanced with new fencing. The perennial gardens have been refreshed, creating a tranquil view and gorgeous border along the side lawn. The land continues to a level lawn that was once a tennis court for the estate and is now used for croquet and other lawn games. The current owner completed an extensive renovation in 2017-2018 resulting in an expanded floor plan that respects the original Lindeberg design. A new foyer with a powder room are adorned with designer wallpapers, marble floors and exquisite light fixtures. The new kitchen and a circular breakfast room feature walls of windows that overlook the side lawn and the courtyard garden. Formal dining and living rooms provide charming venues for entertaining and private views of the landscape. A library with a gas fireplace is tucked behind the living room and offers a quiet space as an optional office. The first floor bedroom suite was also renovated in 2018 and could easily function as the primary suite. Completing the first floor is a laundry room with a second powder room. Upstairs there are three large and unique bedrooms, along with two more full bathrooms. In addition to the bespoke fixtures and finishes used in the recent renovation, the slate roof was refurbished, and many windows were replaced with versions that compliment the Tudor design. This rare Lindeberg jewel stands refreshed and ready for its next century in one of Morris Township's most treasured locations.
