The commission consisted of the design of a new English Manor House on a secluded 24 acre plot of land. The property included water features, rolling grass areas at the front and a steep section of woods at the rear. The project required the procurement of permits from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Conservation and a variance from the Mendham Zoning Board of Appeals.
The stately Colonial Manor is entirely clad in Pennsylvania stone, has slate roofs, copper gutters and leaders, and lavish interior finishes. It comprises six Bedroom Suites, each with its own Bathroom, plus an apartment over the garages, and eight garage bays. The house was designed with energy efficiency in mind, and incorporates the highest R-value insulation throughout, low-E, argon-filled insulating windows and patio doors, a geothermal HVAC system, and energy-efficient appliances.
