Modern Masterwork in Bernardsville
Serenity, sophistication and privacy combine in a striking 2017 modern design skillfully executed by luxury home builders Signature Homes. The clean lines of each space bring visual interest, texture and personality to every room. An inspirational floor plan emphasizes views and natural light as well as the use of organic finishes like stacked stone, exotic hardwoods and imported marble. Open and light-filled, this impressive four bedroom home is situated on a quiet and private setting in Bernardsville. There is future potential for a total of six bedrooms and an additional three-and-one-half baths in this expansive home with an approved six bedroom septic design.
A bespoke Corten steel entrance gate reveals the verdant 6.6 acre setting enhanced by a stone falling water feature, Azek decking, new landscaping, bluestone walls, a gas fire pit area with built-in benches and sweeping green lawns edged by woodlands. Finished in an artful and maintenance-free combination of Italian porcelain tile, stone, hard coat stucco and wood, the metal roof and wide expanses of glass convey a modern sensibility.
Inside, bold and dramatic gathering areas are revealed beyond two custom ten-foot glass entrance doors which draw the eye upward toward a catwalk-style open hallway accessed by a custom steel railed floating staircase. Porcelain and rare, exotic yet sustainable wood flooring of Sapele and Brazilian Koa lend style underfoot, while window walls fill the home with natural light and LED and Lutron lighting systems keep the home illuminated when the sun goes down. Relax in front of the stacked stone gas fireplace in the stunning great room enclosed by glass walls and tall ceilings. The elevated dining room, breakfast room and chef’s kitchen featuring custom cabinetry, a wine refrigerator and upper-end appliances from Wolf, Miele, Sub-Zero and Bosch facilitate grand entertaining.
Private spaces include a first floor master suite anchored by a dual-sided fireplace, a radiant heated master bath, sitting area and master dressing area with an oversized closet featuring wardrobe organizers. Two glass enclosed offices are located away from the public areas for business dealings. Upstairs, three bedrooms and a lofted lounge are ideal for guests. Each of the baths in the home features imported granite, marble and tile work which highlight the state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings.
A spectacular garage and workshop/studio wing is a collector’s dream with its glass doors, natural views and showroom atmosphere that can accommodate up to seven vehicles. This wing can also be transformed into extra bedrooms. The walkout lower level with 10’ ceilings is ready to finish, with potential for family room, gym, theatre and additional bedrooms and baths without compromising the wonderful storage / utility spaces.
Exceptional construction methods such as soundproof insulation between interior walls, a poured concrete foundation and seven zones of energy efficient heat and central air attest to the close attention paid to every detail. Additionally, a whole house generator provides an uninterrupted power source. Completely unique in terms of its form and function, this one-of-a-kind residence is an architectural gem in the Somerset Hills.
