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.
