4 beds | 3.1 baths | 4.5 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3448672


A lovely stone-accented and clapboard Colonial is nestled at the end of a sweeping drive where it is situated on over four acres of privacy. The interior offers four bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths near Mendham’s town center.  A mahogany-floored covered porch and Craftsman-style front door edged by sidelights create a welcoming introduction.  Leading from the foyer is an expansive living room featuring a fireplace and window wall that brings the outside in.  A spacious formal dining room presents French doors to the deck.  A generously-sized country kitchen is designed with granite counters, double wall ovens and a separate breakfast area which opens to the deck.  Further along, a fabulous great room anchored by a custom fireplace overlooks serene views amid ample entertaining space. Just beyond the great room, an in-law suite with full bath and private entrance is a desirable amenity. Accessed by French doors, the office is privately-situated away from the public areas. A powder room completes the first floor.  

The second level is filled with sunlight from the staircase’s skylight and includes an oversized master bedroom, master bath, walk-in closet and balcony overlooking lush grounds. Two more spacious bedrooms with multiple windows, a full bath and laundry are also upstairs. 

Outside, a large deck offers a hot tub and several access points to rear-facing rooms. A custom barn with a corral and a separate studio outbuilding offer many possibilities.

This outstanding Colonial is located in Mendham Borough near award-winning schools, open spaces, Schiff Nature Preserve and a historic downtown lined with shops and eateries. Numerous playing fields, summer concerts and lively parades on July 4th and Labor Day enhance the small-town feeling of Mendham. Mendham Borough is also close to Morristown for Midtown Direct train service to New York City. Newark Liberty International Airport is about a 35-minute drive, and a network of highways is also nearby.

About Mendham

Ranking first in New Jersey Monthly’s 2013 “Best Places to Live” survey, residents of Mendham Borough enjoy the historic setting of this quaint six-square-mile community--located in Morris County and surrounded on three sides by Mendham Township, with Bernardsville (Somerset County) to the south--plus the conveniences of a walkable downtown featuring boutique retail shopping and dining options, like the historic Black Horse Inn and Tavern. Other nearby stores located in the Village Shopping Center include a supermarket, pharmacy, and a hardware store as well as additional specialty retailers.  

Traditions abound in Mendham Borough, with annual events that bring residents together to meet and mingle.  Music is in the air during the summer concert series and outdoor movie nights, when neighbors picnic in Borough Park.  The annual Labor Day Carnival and Parade is capped off by fireworks that signals it’s back-to-school season.  In December, kids and adults alike bundle up and sip hot cocoa as they warm their hands at the annual 12th Night Bonfire of Christmas trees, organized by the volunteer fire department. 

Many children walk to the Borough’s public schools, Hilltop Elementary and Mountain View Middle School, greeted along the way by crossing guards whose smiles are familiar to all after their many years of service.  The West Morris Mendham High School is also located in Mendham, drawing students from Mendham Borough and Mendham Township, as well as the neighboring communities of Chester Borough, Chester Township and Washington Township.
