Utterly imaginative and casually elegant, this residence began as the sprawling turn-of-the-century greenhouses of the Moses Taylor Pyne estate, the main house of which now serves as the official residence of the Governor of NJ. An unwavering commitment to honor the building’s roots guided two renovations and an addition that raised ceilings and substantially increased the footprint. Lustrous wood sheathing and industrial fittings from 1890 were exposed during the process and serve as defining features of the central great room. New materials, like broad slate tile, and high-end finishes, such as statement lanterns, artfully blend with weathered brick walls and heart pine flooring. Just as you’d expect from a greenhouse, abundant natural light is a constant throughout. Tiered windows in the gourmet kitchen look out over a tranquil landscape with plenty of open lawn to use as you please. An extra-sunny breezeway entry leads to 2 bedrooms with a refined shared bath and gives easy access to the expertly finished basement, complete with kitchenette and half-bath. Waterworks fixtures of the highest quality are meant to last a lifetime and improve with age, especially the incredible tub found in the upstairs main bath clad in an abundance of classic carrara marble. Wraparound windows, peaked ceilings and a gas stove give the main bedroom a luxury treehouse feel. A generous guest suite and 2 separate loft offices with dedicated A/C complete the private areas. Outside, a sports court is nestled behind a charming shed, allowing re-laid stone patios bordered by colorful plantings and original greenhouse walls to feel lost in time. Beyond the 1.54-acre property, sidewalks lead straight into town.
