A WORK OF ART
This stately historic mansion, renovated from top to bottom, offers an elegant lesson in subtle opulence.
72 Miller Road, Morristown, New Jersey
This extraordinary home in Morristown’s leafy downtown historic district blends the bones of a stately 1901 mansion with the sophistication of a luxurious 21st century estate. A gut renovation transformed the residence from top to bottom with no detail overlooked, from elegant gallery lighting to masterfully custom crafted deep-set windows, to artfully crafted millwork and all new, state-of-the-art systems.
The exterior cupola, balconies, and a pillared porch suggest the decorative 19th century Victorian Queen Anne style, while the bright open spaces, high ceilings, and wide oak floors of the interior give the five-bedroom residence a chic uptown vibe.
The refurbished 1900’s staircase, new custom cherry secondary staircase and a new elevator connect all four floors. In one of the many creative expressions in the home, original elevator components from the 1900’s have been retrofitted into an arty four-story lighting fixture. There are 12 gas fireplaces - including in four of the bedrooms and the bathroom of the principal suite - each with a unique surround of stone, fine wood, limestone, or honed marble.
Every home chef ’s dream is realized in the sleek kitchen, with Miele, Sub-Zero, Fisher Paykel, and Wolf appliances, and a marble-topped island. The adjacent breakfast room, family room, and enclosed radiant-heated porch combine to make this large, open concept wing of the house inviting.
The home’s large rear stone terrace overlooks an engineering marvel—a three-sided infinity pool with spa facing out to the two-acre property’s lush landscape. This deluxe entertainment area with outdoor speakers, ingeniously placed irrigation and gas-line hook-ups for future heating and plantings, will have four-season functionality thanks to a year-round spa, enclosed radiant-heated porch with fireplace and grill, and an interior pool house.
On the bedroom level, the principal suite has two private terraces and a marble bathroom. As in other rooms in the house, there is a distinctly Manhattan townhouse feel to the bathroom’s clawfoot tub, subway tile walls, and checkerboard tile flooring. One of the three other en-suite bedrooms on this level has a mahogany Juliet balcony and private terrace. The home’s upper level, opening to a terrace with an outdoor fireplace, has a large game room, half bath, and bonus room.
High-tech meets old Europe on the lower level of the house. Exposed stone walls, herringbone brick floors, and sliding barn doors create a rustic ambience for the temperature-controlled French vineyard-style wine cellar holding over 80 cases of wine, tasting area, and wet bar. Adjacent is a home gym and an indoor half-size basketball court with observation area and electronic scoreboard. The bedroom suite on this level offers plenty of space and privacy for guests or live-ins.
From the four-car garage to the extensive security system to the 48KW generator, this fine home delivers all state-of-the-art systems and infrastructure.
A medium-size town with a vibrant arts scene and exciting dining options, Morristown is conveniently located for Manhattan commuters, offering a midtown direct train service and proximity to major highways.
72 Miller Road, Morristown, New Jersey is listed for $5,900,000.
