This newly built English Country Manor is located at 449 Claremont Road in beautiful Bernardsville, NJ, which I like to call the wealthy countryside of Jersey. It is situated on 11 private acres and boasts 9,400 square feet of living space on the first two floors with 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. There are also 5 fireplace and a porte-cochere. It is listed at $5,575,000. I don’t know about you, but I love the stone exterior as well as the stone fireplaces. The dual staircase is also quite nice, although it’s an all too common feature in these multi-million dollar new builds.

    I like bits and pieces of it, but overall it looks like they splurged on some details and completely missed most of the others. The rear of the home is especially drab. Favorite part is probably the living room, though I don’t like how the fireplace is situated in the room [should be on a side wall and not in direct view from the foyer].

    This one looks familiar. Has it been featured here before?

    I still don’t like twin stair-cases; It such a boring way to waste money.

    Pretty pricey. It looks like it isn’t fully build yet. Its missing some things.

    I really dislike the rear elevation.

    The duel staircase is a bit much. It wastes too much space! I would only put one in a really big house.

    Agree that the staircase is blah and overdone. I like the exterior and I like the fact that they sited it on some acreage. The interior is fine but nothing that great. Everything is going to depend on how they decorate this place. It can either be a classy showcase or another hideous New Jersey monstrosity. The price sound ok to me but I do not know the market. Is this overpriced for the area?

    Eh…I think this is pretty blah overall. The stone facade is nice, and I like when designers use a bit of brick with the stone as a contrast (the border around the front doors) but other than that and the nice amount of land, this isn’t doing it for me.

    The foyer with twin staircases and the 2-story family room straight back from the foyer are boring and remind me too much of what Toll Bros. does in their cookie-cutter homes (anyone from the east coast ranging from NC all the way up through NJ know what I’m talking about?)

    No, no, no, no, no. This is the kind of home I hate. Yuck

    I hate it when they mix stones like that. That completely white stone is out of place, especially by the front facade. I like CONTINUITY. I hate these types of homes that mix and match stones, they just really turn me off
