Sun-filled Custom Contemporary in Watchung   Bold design elements lend unparalleled style to a striking contemporary in Watchung. A modernist approach and innovative architecture define this unique, spacious and sunlit residence situated on a quiet cul de sac. The flowing floor plan of five bedrooms and four-and-one-half baths measures over 3,500 square feet, with additional living space in the finished basement.  A façade of fieldstone and classic wood siding lends appeal to this gracious residence, which is  approached by a paved circular drive amid towering pine and deciduous trees on 1.5 acres.   Built in 1987, this unique home’s up-to-the-minute feeling is testament to its timeless  design.  An open floor plan offers  oak hardwood floors, a dual-sided fireplace, expansive window walls framing natural views, numerous skylights, neutral paint colors and generously-dimensioned gathering spaces.   The flowing layout is introduced by double doors into the skylit entrance foyer featuring a contemporary wood staircase. Just off the foyer, a  vaulted and skylit ceiling lends an airy sense to the living room which shares a fireplace with the step-down family room. Special occasions are enhanced in the spacious dining room with recently refinished oak floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Tucked away from the public spaces is a study featuring built-ins and a full bath nearby.    A newer chef’s kitchen is fitted with richly-toned wood cabinetry, granite countertops edged by a decorative tile backsplash, upper-end stainless steel appliances and a light-filled breakfast area containing a wood beamed ceiling and double transom-topped atrium doors to the deck. Completing the main level are powder and laundry rooms.    Upstairs, an oversized master suite tucked under wood ceilings presents a walk-in closet, dressing area and marble master bath  featuring a jetted tub, two-person clear glass door shower with multiple jets and bench seating, and a double sink vanity. Three additional bedrooms on this level share another full bath. The finished basement contains a recreation room, an exercise room and a possible bedroom with full bath. The huge cedar closet is perfect for additional storage space.   Centrally located in Somerset County, suburban Watchung is approximately 30 miles from Manhattan and about 20 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport. This exceptional contemporary is just minutes from area schools, Watchung Valley Golf Club, Washington Rock State Park, plus countless shops and eateries on Route 22.

Watchung, NJ real estate market


As thousands of cars pass through Watchung along Routes 22 or 78 every day, travelers may be unaware of the borough’s hidden natural beauty. This six-square mile town in Somerset County is situated along two ridges of the Watchung Mountain range, giving homes on the upper ridges bucolic views of the countryside, or in some cases, the New York skyline about 25 miles east. Minutes from the highways, the rustic views are a steep contrast to the asphalt and exit signs. Scenery consists of winding roadways, running streams and leafy forests set amid gentle hillsides. Two lakes in town, Lake Watchung and Best Lake, add to the serene atmosphere.

With a population of approximately 5,600 people, Watchung is about a 30-minute car trip to Newark International Airport or 40 minutes to New York City.
