This majestic Victorian dates back to the mid-nineteenth century, rich in history and splendor. Built as the summer home of a wealthy New Yorker, it eventually became the site of the Summit Golf Club and then the Murray Hill Golf Club and ultimately restored as a single family residence with great attention to detail and modern living. Exquisite views of the extensive valley and Kittatinny Mountain range can be seen from the west side of the property.

What truly aggrandizes the home is the French Mansard roof, the only home in Berkeley Heights to showcase this magnificent architecture. The roof together with a blue stone terrace that wraps around the home gives the property a romantic allure. In 2008, a grand covered portico was added to part of the terrace that architecturally compliments the Mansard roof. Intricate cornices and flourishes and a custom mahogany ceiling seamlessly blend in and at night the many windows throughout the home illuminate a breathtaking, magical view.

Chosen by acclaimed New Jersey author and illustrator, Harry Devlin, who had a long standing interest in Victorian architecture, to be included in his book "To Grandfather's House We Go," the property was highlighted as an important example of Victorian architecture featuring Italian elements.  His book was published in 1967 and because of the clarity of the descriptions and illustrations became an educational children's book and a source for college courses in architectural history.

Upon entering the stately entry foyer with an arched doorway and leaded glass front doors, you’ll be charmed by the original trim and elegant chandelier.  The original staircase with a decorative, elaborately carved newel post, adds a focal point welcoming residents and guests. Soaring ceiling heights set the stage for the dramatic first floor layout designed with oversized rooms with an easy flowing floor plan.  Along the hall are large archways leading to a living room, dining room and a large family room all filled with bright sunlight from tall, double-paned windows. The grand Living Room features hardwood floors, wood panel detailing, crown molding, a wood fireplace with marble surround and sandstone hearth, all overlooking the wrap around terrace. The Dining Room has inlayed hardwood flooring and crown molding perfect for formal dinners.  A 38-foot Family Room with a wood burning fireplace and intricate mantelpiece can also be used as a warm and cozy study and library. With access to the covered bluestone terrace it’s an ideal layout for outdoor parties in spring and summer offering views of the pretty gardens on this acre and a half estate.

The chic black and white gourmet kitchen is the heart of the first floor.  The large open space is ideal for dinner party preparation or simple family meals.

Four large bedrooms with hardwood floors and custom built-ins on the second floor can be accessed by the main or back staircases.  The large master bedroom has a romantic arched focal wall, crown molding and a spacious walk-in closet with custom shelving.  A spa-like master bath with jetted soaking tub, pedestal sink and linen closet completes the master suite.  A full media room provides the perfect space for family fun, movies and a place to wind down and relax.

The third floor landing has two bright skylights opening to four bedrooms and two additional full baths.

A carpeted recreation room on the lower level complete with a bar and refrigerator offers a good space for growing teens to hang out with friends.  There’s also a workspace or a storage room and access to the home’s two car garage.

A rare chance to own a true piece of American history, this truly one-of-a-kind home embellishes the essence of grandeur combined with modern day comforts and easy living.

Though just an hour from Manhattan, Berkley Heights seems like a world away. Bordered by the scenic Passaic River and Watchung Mountains, what was once a sleepy farming and resort community is today a town full of beautiful homes, highly regarded public schools and a vibrant social scene. It’s no wonder that Berkeley Height is frequently ranked as one of the top small towns to live in the country. Ideal for families, there is homey feel and a welcoming atmosphere that is reinforced by the many street fairs, festivals and other town-wide events and activities, such as the annual Barn-B-Q Trail Festival in the historic Deserted Village and summer concerts in the park, that are held though out the year....
