COUNTRY ESTATE ON 42 ACRES AT THE PRESERVE IN CLINTON TWP.
A magnificent 19-room country estate is situated on approximately 42 farm-assessed acres with distant countryside views at The Preserve in Clinton Township. The scenic cul de sac setting is further enhanced by a spring-fed pond, rolling meadows, pastures and hedgerows. Outbuildings include a beautifully-restored stone and stucco farmhouse for use as an art studio or for entertaining, a 2015 Timberline™ metal pole barn for horses, and a stone spring house. Custom-built by Toll Brothers in 2005, the expansive 6, 300 square-foot layout offers four en suite bedrooms, five full and two half baths. This incredibly tranquil estate home is conveniently located a few minutes from Interstate 78.
Interior highlights include oak hardwood flooring throughout the first and second floors, rich millwork, ten-foot ceilings on the first floor, two fireplaces, window walls, wide doorways, neutral paint colors, recessed lighting, French doors, dimensional ceilings and an unfinished walkout lower level. Displaying classic Georgian Colonial architecture, the brick front residence features a columned, covered facade topped by a decorative balcony, traditional black shutters and a dormered roofline.
Outdoor entertaining options are available on bluestone patios adjoining the main home as well as the stone and stucco farmhouse. A detailed restoration process of the 860-square foot farmhouse resulted in a bright, airy and modern two-story room with partially exposed stone walls, open beamed ceilings and a full wall wood-burning fieldstone fireplace. The sunlit house also has a half bath, deck and covered front porch. It would be ideal for an artist, entrepreneur or hobbyist.
Hinting at the high level of detail inside the main home is a grand entrance two-story foyer showcasing a butterfly-style dual curved oak staircase. Spanning from the foyer are some of the principal gathering spaces such as the living room featuring a ten-foot dropped octagonal ceiling and crown and chair rail moldings. Adjoining the living room is a sun-filled conservatory, where a full wall of circle top windows frames bucolic views. An elegant tray ceiling dining room presents a sophisticated backdrop for special occasions.
A towering two-story great room’s focal point is the brick raised hearth fireplace, while upper fixed windows, an airy ceiling fan and secondary staircase leading to a bridge overlook draw the eye upward. Just off the great room, a sun-drenched office connects to an inviting solarium for access to the rear bluestone patio.
The spacious center island kitchen contains granite countertops, cherry cabinetry, a decorative backsplash, roomy pantry and an adjacent breakfast area. Upper-end appliances include a cook top and double wall ovens. Guests can linger in the light-filled morning room adjoining the kitchen, which leads to the bluestone patio. Serving the kitchen is a convenient powder room. The first level is completed by a laundry room, secondary powder room as well as a full bath.
Upstairs, four en suite bedrooms provide an abundance of space and privacy. The luxurious master retreat is arranged with a see-through gas propane fireplace shared by the tray ceiling master bedroom and master den, both fitted with crown moldings. Dual walk-in closets, one of which is extraordinarily large, keep wardrobes well organized. A sumptuous master bath has a jetted tub, separate stall shower, two oversized sink vanities and two private commodes. Two en suite bedrooms each offer a sitting room, full bath and double door walk-in closets. The fourth en suite bedroom connects to a private full bath. An upstairs media room is a perfect spot for movie nights or computer use.
The full, unfinished walkout basement offers a workshop and numerous storage options, as does the four-car attached, oversized garage with custom wood doors. This estate home is finished in an appealing mix of brick, clapboard and composition shingles. Outdoor amenities include the 2015-built Timberline™ two-story metal pole barn offering over 1, 000 square-feet of space which can be accessed from the back of the property or a gravel drive on Cokesbury-High Bridge Road. Four rolling fields and a small spring-fed pond add to the pastoral beauty of this horse-friendly property.
Mechanical workings include multiple zones of forced hot air propane-fired heat, central air conditioning, central vacuum, security system, underground utilities, private septic and well water. This regal custom-built home has been thoughtfully updated and displays true pride of ownership.
