Come home to Treetops, one of the Bernardsville Mountain’s most architecturally unique homes with exquisite indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. This estate will appeal to someone who appreciates fine architecture and beautiful countryside views in a central location just 31 miles from New York City.
Featured in several publications for its design mastery, Treetops is a restored carriage house that was once a part of the circa 1916 Stonehyrst estate. It was thoughtfully renovated in 2004, preserving many original details. The stunning great room encompasses a state-of-the-art kitchen, 11-foot ceilings, heated floors and a magnificent limestone fireplace. Glass-paned French doors stand where the original garage bays were, flooding the space with spectacular light. Also on the first floor is an original wood-paneled library with a walk-in bar and a separate sitting room.
Upstairs, a spacious master bedroom features high ceilings with exposed beams, a fireplace, a large walk-in closet and renovated bath with a serene stand-alone soaking tub. Two additional bedrooms with a shared bath and a laundry complete the second floor. The lower level of the house has a large temperature-controlled wine cellar smartly designed with a door that opens to the outdoor patio.
The present owner has made major improvements to Treetops’ outdoor living areas. Step through one of the four sets of French doors in the great room to a beautifully landscaped bluestone terrace equipped with a built-in grill and table for outdoor dinner parties. Steps lead down to a pool and hot tub with a custom stone outdoor fireplace and a flat screen television cabinet. There is also a regulation bocce court and a private outdoor shower. On the other side of the property is a beautiful courtyard highlighting a serene garden surrounded by graceful stone walls. It features a custom stone fire pit bordered by a cascading water feature. With this artfully designed landscaping, Treetops is a magical blend of indoors and outdoors.
A guest house/garage is steps away from the main house. The three-car garage has one bay configured as a gym with a stylishly designed full bath and changing room. The second floor contains a one-bedroom apartment with full bath, small balcony, kitchen and living area with high ceilings.
