    It’s a handsome house, very classical. No surprises inside or out, but that’s fine by me. Just a solid high-quality Georgian. The kitchen, although not fully visible in the photo, looks like it might be disappointing. I love the cupola in the foyer, that’s a design element I tend to like a lot.

    I like some things about this house, but I feel like the rear facade is much more successful than the fron facade. The architect has tried to cram too much into that central section, with quoins,columns, and some kind of pediment over the door.

    I agree completely with Scott. Definitely too much white ‘stuff’ on the front facade, especially surrounding the entry. Looks like icing on a wedding cake. Interior, however, is very beautiful. Rear if the home looks very massive, reminiscent of a train station. I would have liked the second floor to have some deviation; as-is, the second floor looks like a later addition. I do LOVE the trees they’ve planted. It looks almost too perfect.

      The trees really do look good. I just hope that they planted already full-grown trees…

    I agree that the front facade is too fussy. Getting rid of one element would have cleaned it immensely. I would have voted to do away with the quoins which, to me, are what make it look overly busy. I quite like the massiveness of the back facade. Normally I would say the house needs some landscaping up against the house, but since this is based on the design of an English country house, it’s fitting as-is. The interior is lovely, but not at all my style. I think it’s beautifully done though, and would like to see more.

    I have to add that almost all the quotes by Elissa Cullman in the AD article make me want to gag a little. Her hyperbole meter is off the scale.

      Okay, it really is a beautiful residence. I think I could forgive the exterior based on the interior:

        Thanks for the link, Dan. Based on the better pic, I take back my comment on the kitchen. It actually looks pretty darn nice.

        Beautiful home, the detail work is fantastic. That inlaid floor on the 8th photo is amazing.

        They went a little overboard on the quoins and the pillars on the front, but it is OK.
        I would be very happy living here.

    Allan Greenberg!? the second I saw this home I thought about the Chase mansion in CT, its the same architect. The brick and quoins are almost exactly the same on both homes too..

    Beautiful, solid and imposing. Really on a grand scale. I did not know there was such a thing as New Jersey horse country. Love the house. Would love to pull up to this if it were my home. I really like the front door. It looks just like a doorway you would find in London leading into an imposing townhouse. Would like to bing it so I can check out the horse country estates of New Jersey. Anyone got the coords?

    WOW! Im so glad everyone else thought the front facade was too fussy, still i love the choice of colors, this type of architecture is timeless for me and i never tire from seeing a new Georgian mansions. The interior is absolutely stunning, and I was let down by the kitchen until i followed the designers website. If it was for the messy facade I would give this home a 9/10.
