This modern and beautifully detailed home offers a fresh take on classic architecture, featuring on-trend design details and exquisite craftsmanship. Built-in 2008 and updated in 2024, this Shingle-style estate exudes understated elegance and sophistication like coastal estates in the Hamptons and Newport. Privately set on 3.42 acres with a gated entry and professionally landscaped grounds, the exceptional property is accented with gas lanterns, expansive bluestone terraces, meandering stone walls, Belgium block curbing and parking courts, and beautiful mature plantings. The 8,500-plus square-foot layout has been renovated with 2024 updates including stunning Christopher Peacock kitchen and baths. With four/five bedrooms, five full baths, two powder rooms, and a four-car heated garage, this home is perfect for formal entertaining or casual gatherings.

Bespoke details such as deeply layered crown moldings, wainscoting, quarter-sawn five-inch plank white oak floors, radiant heated flooring in select rooms, freshly painted interior and exterior, soaring ceilings, lustrous mahogany paneling and three fireplaces are among the notable design elements. Expansive window walls frame the pastoral outdoor setting of green lawns, bluestone terraces, and stunning natural views of the surrounding woodlands.

Introduced by a wide entrance foyer, long galleries capped by tray ceilings extend into the home’s right and left wings. Straight ahead, the dining room’s artfully carved columns and convenient butler’s pantry set the stage for special gatherings. Continuing into the left wing is a wine room designed with a mahogany paneled, temperature-controlled chamber and wet bar. Mahogany paneling continues in the ventilated smoking lounge with an adjacent climate-controlled humidor. Continuing the easy flow is the living room with elegant millwork and walls of windows and the fireside library featuring a mahogany coffered ceiling, dimensional wall panels, and built-in custom cabinetry.

In the right wing, unparalleled amenities converge with a high degree of functionality in the ultimate Christopher Peacock kitchen, expertly renovated in 2023. This noteworthy designer’s handcrafted custom cabinetry with walnut interiors is complemented by dual center islands, marble surfaces, commercial-grade appliances, and a curved window-walled dining area. The dining area adjoins a great room, where the fabulous stone fireplace ascends to the top of an ornately coffered two-story ceiling, and French doors reveal the bluestone terrace. An adjacent den, wrapped in high beadboard wainscoting and enhanced by built-in media, welcomes relaxed nights at home. This wing also contains a handsome billiard room tucked under a dramatic vaulted Cypress paneled ceiling, while radiant-heated brick floors arranged in a herringbone pattern and a custom wet bar enhance the convivial atmosphere.

Multiple sets of French doors on the main level open to an entertainment-friendly bluestone terrace, a high-end outdoor kitchen, and the detached, office/media center. This spectacular space has a stone fireplace rising to the high-peaked mahogany ceiling, while three retracting glass walls and climate control features make this inviting area a delight in every season.

Upstairs, a long window-walled gallery hall reveals the private balcony overlooking perennial gardens and the parking court. A beautifully designed primary suite sited in its own wing provides amazing storage options in the bedroom, a dressing room fitted with custom cabinetry, and a chic room-sized walk-in closet featuring custom wardrobe organizers and an island. Luxurious designer appointments prevail in the sizable marble-clad primary bath, elegantly renovated in 2023 with Christopher Peacock vanities and cabinetry. There are three additional bedrooms on this level, all with spa-like ensuite baths. Two of the baths were completely updated in 2024 with Christopher Peacock cabinetry and stunning custom-designed marble flooring, shower interiors, and vanity countertops.

Echoing the refined sophistication of the upper levels, a spacious walkout lower level has a fully mirrored exercise room with a heated rubber workout floor, a recreation room /optional 5th bedroom clad in beadboard wainscoting, a full bath with an oversized marble shower, Travertine-floored mud room and ample closet space. Several utility rooms store a variety of innovative technology features, including the Control 4 system serving the home. This level also encompasses a huge four-car garage with radiant heated bluestone flooring, mahogany beadboard walls, and columns, a suede-finished paneled ceiling, and a custom mahogany garage door.

Known for its refined estate properties and winding country roads, the sought-after New Vernon section of Harding Township is centrally located in Morris County. It is about 40 miles west of Manhattan, 30 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport, and close to NJ Transit Midtown Direct train stations in neighboring Morristown and Madison. A local network of interstate highways includes Routes 202 and Interstates 287 and 78. Highly rated public and private schools, world-class golf courses, fine dining, and upscale shops define this picturesque part of the state.

For fifty years, Turpin Real Estate has specialized in serving the real estate needs of the Somerset, Morris, and Hunterdon County areas of New Jersey. This is an extraordinary part of the state, rich in natural beauty and steeped in historical significance. Our five offices in Mendham, Far Hills, Bernardsville, Oldwick and Chatham are integral parts of the communities we serve. As a family owned business, it has always been important to us that we remain small enough to maintain our strong local identity. We live here and are eminently familiar with the communities we serve. As such, we are much more than a real estate brokerage. We are a source of local knowledge and advice. We have a profound understanding of the workings of our towns and villages, borne of years of involvement in community affairs.
