Sotheby's International Realty - Harding Township, NJ

Beechwood is a 30,000 square foot residence, with carriage apartment and pool house set on 15 private acres in the secure hamlet of New Vernon. Crafted in 2005 by preeminent WESketch Architecture, the classic Butterfly plan provides elements of constant discovery to the observer and ensures that its overall size is never readily apparent. Bold selections of Jerusalem limestone floors, Roman-brick ceilings, cashmere wall coverings, and thirteen imported fireplaces from Italy and Portugal, were artfully selected by designer Frank Delle Donna and carefully woven to portray quiet elegance from an oval-shaped great room and gallery to the three-room wine grotto. An eight-room master sanctuary retreats to dual baths, dressing rooms, cedar storage, secret gardens, and hidden passageways. Located just 35 miles from midtown Manhattan, Beechwood is a work of art created with brick and mortar.
