14 Kimball Circle Westfield, NJ 07090

Majestic and regal, opulent and elegant only begin to describe this classic 1928 French Normandy style estate designed by world-renowned architect, Lewis Bowman, a prime example of his precision and flawless work. Located in the very prestigious section of Westfield amongst the town’s most distinguished homes once known as Wychwood, this magnificent property sits on 1.1 acres and overlooks Echo Lake Country Club, offering panoramic views and graciously sprawling formal lawns and landscaped grounds. A sparkling saltwater gunite pool is enclosed by a stone privacy wall and immaculately manicured shrubs – simply stunning.

A sweeping circular driveway begins your journey into this enchanting, storybook setting…..the Entry Hall has Chestnut paneled walls and hardwood floors with ribbon trim. Two steps down and you are in the two-story Living Room – the heart of this home – and the epitome of Bowman’s classic works. This room will take your breath away. With a cathedral and beamed ceiling, stunning millwork, intricately paneled Chestnut walls, crowned moldings, a window seat and a detailed stone fireplace with limestone surround. Leaded stained glass windows in colorful hues radiate throughout the room. A second floor minstrel balcony overlooks this space for a touch of theatrics.

Accessible from either the Living Room or Entry Hall is the home’s Sunroom. Complete with wet bar and leading out to the rear bluestone patio, this room is ideal for entertaining and parties. Guests will savor the warmth and bright light from southwestern exposure and be enthralled by the absolutely breathtaking views. A stone floor helps keep the room cool and provides an outdoor feeling. Adjacent is the elegant Dining Room, an intimate setting for formal dinner parties and big family holiday celebrations. The handsome Study features two mahogany built-in bookcases for displaying treasured books and a decorative fireplace perfect for getting in an afternoon of work or just putting your feet up with a good book while admiring the changing seasons through the large picture window.

The Kitchen has been completely renovated to state-of-the-art, but with many details in keeping with the period of the home. Custom cabinetry with glass doors and detailed millwork as seen throughout other rooms in the home, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances including a professional grade, Viking range and double ovens and Sub-Zero refrigerator make cooking a dream. The center island has a granite countertop, built-in wine rack and extra sink convenient for food prep. An inlay tile backsplash and delicate floral wallpaper add a touch of subtlety and charm. An adjoining Breakfast Area showcases a built-in-a fun place for a family meal.

Make your way up to the Second Floor where the landing has a window seat overlooking the front grounds – a perfect spot to catch your breath and enjoy a quiet moment. The second floor has a Master Suite that will win the hearts of all. The Master Bath is spectacular – a five-star retreat right at home. Lush details and neutral tones rich in luxury and splendor. A Jacuzzi soaking tub overlooking the remarkable rear grounds separates two graceful pedestal sinks. The oversized stall shower has white tile, a great look against the room’s neutral color palette – truly a bathroom fit for royalty. A spiral staircase leads up to a large walk-in closet with custom built-ins, dry cleaning turnstile, shelving and shoe racks where his and her possessions can be kept neat and organized. Four more bedrooms and three additional baths provide just enough room for family and guests.

The Lower Level has a large finished Recreation Room which can be used as an Exercise Room or, add a TV and some comfy furniture and it’s a great Media/Entertainment area. There’s also a large laundry room with built-in shelving and cabinets. A wine cellar and workshop complete the Lower Level.

Step outside and onto the bluestone patio, overlooking the grounds and views of the Echo Lake golf course. The nearby gunite in-ground heated saltwater pool is a great place to relax and cool off and the Cabana with full bathroom is only steps away.
