Built in the late 19th century, this landmark Washington’s Headquarters Colonial was beautifully renovated and restored. Impressive craftsmanship and attention detail reveal wonderful period features including hardwood floors with mahogany inlay, beamed ceilings, exquisite molding details and eight striking fireplaces. The classic floor plan presents spacious rooms enhanced by architectural details and designer touches. The living spaces flow seamlessly and encourage easy entertaining and comfortable everyday living.

The grand foyer lined with remarkable woodwork is a gracious design element found throughout the home. The perfect backdrop for every occasion, the living room offers two fireplaces and French doors to the sun room where natural light cascades through three walls of windows. The banquet-sized dining room is arranged with a fireplace and two atrium doors to the screened porch. 

Sleek and stylish, the kitchen boasts marbles counters, a hand-crafted tile backsplash and professional grade appliances. Right off the kitchen is the family room with a fireplace, soaring ceiling and sliders to the yard. Completing the first floor are a library with built-ins, powder room, mud room, butler’s pantry and a back staircase to the second floor.

The second floor provides a wealth of personal space. The master bedroom is a private retreat with a fireplace, updated en suite bath and a sleeping porch. Three guest bedrooms, one en suite, an office and another full bath round off this level. Adding more personal space, two additional bedrooms, three walk-in closets, a play room and a full bath are found on the third floor. The lower level offers more great living space including a pool room, den, powder room and lots of storage. 

Complemented by lush landscaping, the grounds feature mature trees supplying shade and privacy, spectacular perennial gardens, stone patios, a gazebo and a circular stone driveway. The warmth and charm of a bygone era combine perfectly with today’s amenities to create a remarkable home with a commanding presence and great location close to Morristown’s vibrant downtown and Midtown Direct Trains.
