This beautifully appointed Roxiticus Valley country estate is sited on approximately 16 private acres, 11 being farm assessed, in Mendham Township. Set back from the road, a long circular driveway leads to the extraordinary residence set amid lush landscaping, stone walls, perennial gardens, sweeping lawns and gently rolling hills.
Views of the bucolic setting are enjoyed from every interior space as well as from charming bluestone porches, verandas and patios. Built in 2002, the residence incorporates 12-foot ceilings on the main floor, custom millwork, hardwood flooring and wall treatments, custom cabinetry and built-in bookcases, offering warm and inviting spaces with classic design elements.
The residence features 21 rooms with six en suite bedrooms and three powder rooms spanning three full levels. There are seven fireplaces, a finished lower level and heated three-car attached garage. Outdoor amenities include a stunning heated in-ground pool with spa and a resort-style pool house with full kitchen, bar area, bathroom and changing rooms. A cobblestone courtyard features a stone potting shed and a heated three-car detached barn garage leading to a breezeway with stone arches. There is also an Amish-constructed four-stall horse barn with soft stall flooring, hot and cold water, grooming and wash stall, tack room, hay loft and office. One large grass paddock and two smaller stone dust paddocks complete the equestrian setting.
An inviting foyer highlighting a winding staircase with quarter sawn wood and wrought iron railings welcomes you into the residence. An adjoining gallery with bluestone flooring and plaster wall finishes offers access points to large gathering rooms including the oval shaped dining room with hand painted murals and domed ceiling, a well-appointed butler’s pantry and cheerful living room.
Steps away, the chef’s kitchen, designed by European Country Kitchens of Far Hills, features Conklin exposed beams and is fitted with a large center island and circular breakfast bar, granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances. The chef’s kitchen also has a cozy fireside sitting area and dining area opening onto a bluestone veranda. A cranny room, office and walk-in pantry complete this section of the home. The entertainment wing can also accommodate large groups in the theatre, billiards room and bar area. There are also more privately-situated spaces including the two-story library and an office suite. An artfully-designed mud room features distressed plaster walls, custom cabinetry, a fitted oversized closet, farmhouse sink and access to the three-car attached garage.
Upstairs, the level of detail continues with a luxurious six-room master suite comprised of the bedroom, sitting room, dressing room, exercise room and dual baths. The second floor also offers five additional en suite bedrooms with two cozy sitting areas and a studio/music room. The walkout lower level includes a recreation room, music/card room and spacious powder room.
