Description

This grandly-styled custom Colonial was designed by architect Henry Peter Ragiel in 1985.  It is beautifully executed throughout all three floors of living space and incorporates both classic and luxury design elements.  Crafted with a cedar clapboard exterior, the home sits gracefully on 2.8+ acres of manicured grounds at the end of cul-de-sac.  A paved driveway leads to a gracious front entrance and attached three-car garage. The entry is detailed with a rocking chair front porch and main door edged by a leaded arched transom and leaded glass sidelights. 

Inside, a bright two-story foyer with hardwood floors and a sweeping staircase welcomes you into this sun-filled residence.  Opening from the foyer is a step-down living room where the focal point is a wood-burning fireplace with marble hearth, marble surround and a carved wood mantel. The living room seamlessly transitions into a sunroom awash with natural light from window walls, offering a feeling of freshness and tranquility.  French doors reveal a handsome two-story walnut paneled study featuring a wood-burning fireplace with marble hearth and surround. A spiral staircase leads to a second story library with ample bookcases and space for seating.  This is a perfect arrangement for a home office or to showcase a special collection.

The center island kitchen is an entertainer’s delight with quality custom cabinetry, a Wolf range with six-burner French cooktop and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. Additional features include a stainless steel double sink, a secondary sink area for a coffee or wine bar, and lots of storage with custom inserts. The center island provides breakfast bar seating for two, while a curved bay window alcove  provides a generous dining area for everyday gatherings with ample natural light and views of the private backyard.  

A brick fireplace with a curved brick design and glass enclosure centers the expansive family room which also features a custom built-in media cabinetry.  Lovely French doors with arched stained glass window leads to the generous two-tiered deck spanning the entire rear of the home, an ideal venue for outdoor entertaining.

The second floor presents a master suite plus three bedrooms, two full baths and the library. An extra-large master suite is appointed with bedroom, walk-in closet, and renovated master bath with a bank of windows and skylight which bathe the room in natural light.  The master bath also contains custom built-in cabinetry, custom lighting, double granite-topped vanities, a Kohler soaking tub and separate marble tiled shower.  Three more spacious bedrooms offer wall-to-wall carpeting and ample closet space. Another full bath has a mahogany cabinet with built-in linen closet, tub and shower. The living space continues on the third floor arranged with two more bedrooms, a full bath and large bonus space.

This refined Washington Township home offers Blue Ribbon schools and borders Chester Township for close proximity to shopping, restaurants, Hacklebarney State Park and the beloved Cider Mill.

Washington Township, NJ real estate market

About

Washington Township is located in the western-most portion of Morris County, a picturesque part of the state that still maintains a rural feeling with an abundance of farmland and wide open spaces. This is an ideal setting for residents who appreciate a peaceful setting that’s still within commuting distance of Manhattan. 

 

Measuring nearly 45 square miles, Washington Township encompasses the largest area of any municipality in Morris County. The township borders Somerset, Warren and Hunterdon Counties and is about 15 miles from the Delaware River and Pennsylvania border. Routes 46, 24/513 and 517 pass through town, and Interstate Route 80 is minutes away in Mount Olive, a neighboring community.

 

Two notable sections of Washington Township are Long Valley and Schooley’s Mountain.  Long Valley was once known as German Valley since settlers from Saxony, a region of Germany near the border of Poland, relocated there in the 1700s. 

 

Schooley’s Mountain stands as a tall ridge in great contrast to the gently rolling hillsides found in the rest of the region. It became a famous resort in the 19th century due to its natural springs. The region’s iron-infused chalybeate water was said to have health-giving properties and many people promoted the water’s healing qualities.
