One-Of-A-Kind Custom Built Home

This is truly a one-of-a-kind custom home – a unique combination of New York City loft and Vermont country home!  New construction, situated at the highest point of the Watchung Mountains in The Borough of Chatham, there are spectacular vistas stretching to the New York City skyline.  Envisioned by a second-generation international developer, whose background in science and engineering led him to construct a unique and modern home of the highest caliber, the property is currently in the final stages of its construction with anticipated completion by early 2022.

Situated on four-tenths of an acre, with over 7300SF of brilliantly developed living space, the home contains 5 bedrooms, 5.1 full bathrooms, and six distinct levels each providing a wonderful fusion of luxury lifestyle features and eco-friendly/smart home design.  These levels are connected by an artfully designed staircase and elevator.  There are multiple fused-bamboo 50 ft x 9 ft decks on three floors along with 15 ft high ceilings in the Great Room; sixth level separate living quarters and full bathroom; fifth-level hanging wood-burning fireplace suspended from the ceiling; lower-level interior pool with spa area, full bathroom and exterior entertainment decks; movie theatre and 300 bottle wine cellar below with storage space and mechanical rooms; multi-zone heat and air conditioning; sprinkler system throughout; all utilities underground.

You may think you’re in the south of France perhaps in Cap Ferrat but this is Chatham Borough, New Jersey – an extraordinary custom home just minutes from downtown shopping, top-rated schools, within an easy drive to the NJ Performing Arts Center, Liberty Science Center, 20 minutes to Newark Liberty International Airport and the NJ Transit railway station with direct service to New York City’s Penn Station.
