6 beds | 7.1 baths | 1.23 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3448912


The sought-after Canterbury Estates Community, an enclave of stately homes, provides the setting for this Buck’s County inspiration. Poised on 1.23 lushly landscaped acres, a dedication to excellence indoors and out, luxurious materials and impressive craftsmanship readily become apparent.

An elegant columned portico plays counterpoint to the home’s rustic fieldstone elevation. Long horizontal lines allow for 14 spacious rooms plus five full and one-half baths on the home’s main levels. Architectural elegance is effected with high ceilings, marble and hardwood floors, tall windows, built-in cabinetry, custom millwork. Gracious formal rooms are followed by a sizeable great room introduced by stone columns and centered with floor-to- ceiling fireplace. A coffered ceiling crowns the cherry paneled library. The gallery spanning the home’s east/west axis emphasizes the home’s unstinting dimensions. The solarium with walls of windows runs front to back. The light-capturing design continues in the expansive kitchen where a Palladium window prevails in the prep area and the wonderfully wide informal dining area has unhindered views to the rear grounds. Glimpse the Belgian-block terrace, salt-water pool accompanied with fountains and spa, the surround of magnificent mature firs for ultimate privacy.

On the second level, the master suite, crested with tray ceiling, opens to a tranquil sitting room. The suite continues to a coffered-ceiling dressing room, its walls wood paneled and besieged with built-ins. Etched-glass double doors introduce the plush marble-lined master bath. Four additional en suite bedrooms, each with walk-in closets, complement this upper level. A sixth en suite bedroom adjoins the home’s rear entry.

The finished walk-out lower level generously extends the upper levels’ 5600 sq. ft. of upper living space. A magnificent, fully-appointed wet bar centers the area. The lounge, with fireplace, and game areas, adjoins. Other spaces include exercise and play rooms, an office, workshop, full bath and a welcome extravagance of storage.

Basking Ridge has long been favored by discerning buyers seeking a sophisticated community with small town charm convenient to train lines and major thoroughfares. Equally attractive are abundant recreational opportunities, dining, shopping and the area's pastoral beauty. No less important for many are the town’s highly awarded schools.

Bernards Twp. (Basking Ridge), NJ real estate market

Basking Ridge in Bernards Township has retained its small-town charm for over 200 years. Most of the shops, restaurants, and services along tree-lined South Finley Avenue are located in historic 19th-century houses. In fact, the downtown area has so much history that it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

Bernards Township was originally formed by Royal Charter as Bernardston Township. The name Bernards Township was given to the area in 1760 by King George II to honor Sir Francis Bernard, Provincial Governor of New Jersey from 1758 to 1760. It was incorporated as Bernards Township in 1798. Basking Ridge, Liberty Corner, Lyons, and West Millington are located within Bernards Township, while Martinsville is split between Bernards and Bridgewater Townships.

Even though maps indicate that Basking Ridge is a small commercial district in the northeast section of Bernards, about 95% of the township is referred to as Basking Ridge and has a Basking Ridge postal address. The only major parts of Bernards that do not have Basking Ridge addresses are the Veterans Administration Hospital in Lyons and Liberty Corner, a small historic district in the southern portion of the township.

The Bernards Township municipal building on Collyer Lane is housed in a circa 1912 brick Tudor mansion detailed with French pocket doors, maple and mahogany paneling, and marble fireplaces. The house and its 28 acres were sold to the township by John Jacob Astor VI for $140,000 in 1968.
