Property descriptionA classic country estate
A classic country estate in its truest form, this charming vintage home offers a peaceful setting and bucolic views while answering the need for a quiet retreat or an ultimate work-from-home setting. Having access to Wegman's, large-scale malls in Bridgewater, trains to Manhattan, proximity to Interstates 78 and 287, and high-caliber restaurants like the Ryland Inn and Pluckemin Inn all within a 10-minute drive make this retreat completely convenient. Surrounded by over 13 acres in historic Whitehouse Station, it is centrally located in the heart of northern New Jersey's equestrian estate region and within an hour of New York City. Overlooking the Rockaway Creek, where blue heron and deer cross in the distant upstream waters, this circa 1840 Colonial and classic gleaming white barns have been extensively updated, expanded and continuously improved upon to create an idyllic compound with a large pool and tennis court. Generously-proportioned rooms, with approximately 7,600 square feet of interior space, provide the perfect opportunity to relax comfortably and entertain in grand style. From the expansive two-story great room and comfortably elegant living room to the warmly toned wood-sided library, the charm is palpable. An office, family room and full bath add versatility to the floor plan since their location at the end of a long first floor hallway can be used for overflow guests. Five bedrooms on the second floor include the primary suite with double baths plus sitting and dressing rooms. An elevator runs three stories to a separate, newer suite on the second floor. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped with extensive perennial beds around the house, terraces and a newly-renovated pool. Distinguished mature oaks arch over the terraces to provide shade. The barns include six stalls, hay storage and a small caretaker's room; they can also offer the vintage car collector enticing storage space. Lawns and meadows are ample for possible pasturage. This is a magical estate of great distinction. Its location puts it within easy reach of bustling metropolitan areas yet keeps it pleasantly away from the stress and non-stop pace. Designed for a sophisticated yet comfortable lifestyle, the next owners will find it easy to come home to and difficult to leave.
