Truly an escape from the everyday, this grand French manor finished in stucco is sited on nearly six level acres in the picturesque Roxiticus Valley. A beautifully detailed 8,953 square-foot floor plan offers six en suite bedrooms and three powder rooms. The heated pool surrounded by landscaped privacy and an expansive bluestone terrace provide a lavish backdrop for outdoor entertaining. Situated on a peaceful cul de sac, this regal home is part of the Winston Farm enclave in Mendham Township and has a Far Hills mailing address. Custom-built in 1990, this sophisticated three-story manor is approached by a circular drive leading to a front parking court. Open grounds take in sweeping pastoral views of manicured landscaping, perennial gardens and lush green lawns. Inside, the vast layout includes inspirational design elements such as marble and bordered hardwood floors, extensive trim, five fireplaces, large windows and French doors filling the rooms with natural light, a rear staircase and impeccably finished third level. Of special note are the chef’s kitchen opening to a fireside family room, a first floor master suite featuring a private loft, and an apartment-style bedroom on the second level with an eat-in kitchen, full bath, bedroom and access to a huge living area. Introduced by a double door entry edged by sidelights and a fanlight window, the spectacular two-story foyer is designed with a graceful curving staircase, marble floors and dimensional trim. Sightlines from the foyer reveal the adjacent living and dining rooms. The step-down living room has contrast hardwood bordered floors, a fireplace encased in an elegant white wood mantle, a transom-topped window wall, French doors to the terrace, crown and applied moldings and a connecting sitting area set beyond white columns. An extra-large dining room features bordered hardwood floors in a classic Greek key motif, and a combination of crown, chair rail and applied moldings. Connected to the dining room is a private wood-paneled library offering a fireplace flanked by custom built-ins, bordered hardwood floors and French doors to the terrace. Chefs will appreciate the gourmet kitchen arranged with a roomy center island, Corian counters, custom cabinetry and a full complement of upscale appliances. The sun-splashed breakfast room tucked into a window wall opens to the spacious bluestone terrace for outdoor dining. Views from the kitchen extend to the towering two-story family room featuring a full stone wall fireplace, entertainment-friendly wet bar and a series of tall circle top windows. The high level of detail continues in a sophisticated first floor master suite comprised of a fireside bedroom, marble master bath with soaking tub, stall shower, double sink vanity, separate commode and walk-in closet, plus stairs to the private loft currently used as an art studio. This airy space has skylights, vaulted ceilings, multiple windows and a walk-in closet. The first level is completed by formal and informal powder rooms, a laundry room and access to the attached three-car garage. The second floor is arranged with five en suite bedrooms; one of the bedroom suites has a private balcony, one features a fireplace, and another is fitted with a kitchen. This level also includes a great room as well as access to the third floor’s massive finished bonus room, game room, powder room and two walk-in closets. The Winston Farm community is centrally located in Morris County’s Mendham Township, a short distance from the historic village of Mendham and about ten minutes from Morristown for Midtown Direct train service to Manhattan, fine dining, shopping, entertainment and recreation.
