Estate-Caliber Colonial in Mendham’s Brookside Section

A brick front Georgian Colonial in the sought-after Brookside section of Mendham Township displays all the elegance of this classic architectural style, from its covered and columned front entrance to its harmonious proportions and dormered roofline. This grand estate-caliber home is sited on over four acres of privacy backing to parkland. Inside, the impressively detailed layout contains five bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and four full baths. 

Approached by a landscaped front walkway, the transom-topped front door bordered by sidelights reveals a towering two-story foyer with a turned staircase, circle top window and views into some of the principal rooms. A regal living room features an ornately-mantled fireplace, crown moldings and hardwood floors. In the banquet-sized dining room, crown and chair rail moldings lend dimensional interest, while the adjacent butler’s pantry streamlines entertaining.  A private study is perfect for paperwork or computers; it adjoins a bright, airy music room overlooking manicured views of the acreage.

Truly a heart-of-the-home space, an epicurean center island kitchen presents custom cherry cabinets, granite countertops, a decorative tile backsplash, oversized tile floors and a roomy dining area. Sliding glass doors in the dining area access the step-down three season porch, a fully windowed and skylit gathering area offering serene views. The kitchen also connects to a two-story family room presenting a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace flanked by tall sunburst windows. Completing the first level is a full bath and a laundry room.

Upstairs, the railed upper balcony takes in views of the entrance foyer and family room below. A sophisticated master bedroom is warmed by the glow of a marble surround fireplace and offers two walk-in closets. The master sitting room features three window walls and a sumptuous master bath providing a jetted platform tub, separate shower and huge L-shaped double sink vanity topped in granite. Three more spacious bedrooms share a full bath on this level. A fifth en-suite bedroom contains a private bath with a granite-topped vanity and can be accessed from a rear staircase, making it an ideal arrangement for guests or an au pair.  Additional living space in the neutrally finished lower level includes media, game, utility and storage rooms.

Originally built in 1996, the home has been thoughtfully updated and beautifully maintained through the years. The Brookside section of Mendham is a charming area in the east side of the township, putting it close to neighboring Morristown for Midtown Direct trains, shops, restaurants and cultural venues. Nearby are top-rated public and private schools, golf courses and equestrian facilities.

About Mendham

Mendham Township is situated in the southern part of Morris County, several miles from the county seat of Morristown and about an hour’s drive from New York City.  Brookside and Ralston—once known by its Native American name of Roxiticus--are long-established hamlets in this picturesque township, where winding country roads, vast estate properties and notable historic sites impart a decidedly rural feel. Mendham Township and the smaller Mendham Borough are commonly referred to simply as Mendham.  The township was founded in 1749 and measures about 18 square miles. 


People have been drawn to the natural beauty of Mendham Township for centuries; it has also been a more-recent home to notable residents including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, actor and star of the Game of Thrones television series Peter Dinklage, and the late singer Whitney Houston.
