A unique opportunity awaits in charming Mendham Borough offering 4.5 level, private acres enhanced by verdant lawns and mature woodlands. The park-like setting is approached by a tree-lined drive leading to this inviting Contemporary home. The current owners skillfully acquired additional acreage which now includes a clay tennis court. They also added a 1,000 square-foot, three-tiered deck in the expansive pool area and two impressive sheds to serve the pool and tennis court. In addition they extended the garage to house four cars and added a circular driveway. 

The sun-filled home features a welcoming entrance with a double coat closet, tile flooring and curved wall shared with the adjoining dining room, where large windows frame stunning views. There are nine-foot ceilings on the first floor including a dramatic great room with cathedral ceiling, cobblestone wood-burning fireplace and window wall overlooking the pool and bucolic grounds. Hardwood and tile flooring and recessed lighting also enhance the first floor. 

An appealing first floor en-suite master bedroom has two double closets, pool views and an updated bath with double sink vanity and granite countertop.  There is a separate tub and ceramic tile shower stall with a seamless glass door in this spa-like master bath.  

Bright and airy, the kitchen has new stainless steel appliances including a Bosch dishwasher, Dacor double ovens and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. This upgraded kitchen includes marble countertops, a built-in desk with cabinetry and an eating area with a marble-topped table. Just off the kitchen, an expansive  screened porch with skylights and a three-tiered deck are perfect for warm weather entertaining. A large laundry room with Whirlpool washer and dryer,  ample cabinetry and an updated powder room complete the first floor.

The second level has three nicely-sized bedrooms with an impressive updated bath featuring a ceramic tile tub/shower with seamless glass door and a custom wood vanity with granite top. 

There is a finished recreation room in the basement with ample storage. Mechanical systems include a gas furnace with hot water baseboard heat, two air handlers for central air conditioning and the convenience of public water and sewer.   

This enticing property backs to 10 acres of preserved farmland and a  gentle stream is found on the south side of the property.  Patriots Path is nearby for hiking, biking, horseback riding and jogging.
