The sleek, minimalist lines of a sun-splashed contemporary incorporate modern design principles through its use of natural wood and stone as well as expansive windows and glass doors which connect the indoor and outdoor spaces. Situated on over seven acres of open and wooded privacy, this Bernardsville retreat was thoughtfully sited to highlight views of the natural surroundings using three daylight levels. The serene setting is just minutes from downtown shops, restaurants, art galleries, cafes and train service to Manhattan.

Bright and airy, the ten-room open floor plan offers four bedrooms and two-and-one-half baths within its 4,200 square-foot layout. A finished outbuilding presents an ideal arrangement for a home business, yoga space, artist’s workshop or writer’s studio; this heated and air conditioned structure has a barn door entry, atrium glass doors, oak floors and high ceilings.

Welcoming and well-designed, the home is privately set far back from a country road. A long paved drive leading to the attached two-car garage takes in views of landscaped scenery. Inside, the foyer is fitted with refinished hardwood floors, views into main gathering areas and a modern wood staircase serving all three levels. A wood-burning fireplace is a striking focal point in the living room, while glass doors open to the wraparound deck. An expansive, light-filled family room features new carpeting, a raised hearth gas fireplace, sunburst light fixture, vaulted ceiling and deck access. The dining room presents newly refinished hardwood floors, an overlook from the upper hallway, vaulted ceiling and sliding glass doors to the deck.

A pass-through window from the kitchen to the dining room streamlines entertaining. The highly-functional kitchen has a new stainless steel range, wood-look cabinetry, a tile backsplash and captivating country views. 

The second story is completely devoted to the graceful master suite of rooms. It provides a spacious bedroom with sitting area and sliding door to a private master balcony, a dressing area featuring multiple closets and a window seat, and a glamorous marble-accented master bath with a jetted platform tub, separate oversized clear glass door shower, marble flooring, large vanity and fixtures from Hans Grohe and Kohler.

Flexible living spaces define the daylight walkout lower level. Here, three bedrooms, a full bath and a generously-sized home office are filled with natural light. The office has sliding glass doors to the yard and plumbing access for a future full bath.
