This historic European inspired estate is located at 450 Mendham Road in Bernardsville, NJ and is situated on 15 landscaped acres. It was built in 1896 as the Summer House for Robert Livingston Stevens, whose family was instrumental in the development of steam-powered boats and locomotives and founded Stevens Institute of Technology. It went through an extensive renovation by architect Jeffrey Beer who transformed it into a stunning masterpiece that exudes old world charm with modern touches. It features approximately 16,000 square feet of living space (most likely more) with 7 bedrooms, 8 full and 4 half bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, paneled home office, “rose gallery”, gourmet kitchen, 2nd “hobby” kitchen, informal dining room, family room, beamed ceilings and stone walls throughout, conservatory, home theater with lobby and candy counter, cafe with 3rd full service kitchen, billiards/game room with pub, Parisian street scene in the basement with courtyard and storefronts, 6-car garage and more. The extensive grounds feature formal gardens, terrace, gazebo, reflecting pool and a swimming pool.
It was originally listed back in 2010 for $16.75 million.
