About 52 Chapin Road

This picture-perfect country estate on top of Bernardsville mountain draws its aesthetic inspiration from the country homes of Europe, with a classically landscaped gravel courtyard fronting the clean lines of the whitewashed brick residence. The symmetrical design of the five-bedroom residence, punctuated by dormer windows and a central cupola, are reminiscent of the genteel homes of provincial France. The ten-acre property, with perennial gardens and sweeping lawns trimmed by old-growth trees, has picturesque long views over Pleasant Valley, which can be enjoyed from most of the interior rooms.

Custom architectural details abound in the carefully designed and crafted house, from the finely milled wainscot, crown molding and doors, to the mahogany-paneled library. There are coffered ceilings in the library and living room, a barrel ceiling in the master suite, and a custom cross vault brick ceiling in the lower level’s 4,000-bottle wine cellar. The world-renowned purveyors of luxury fittings, Perrin & Rowe of London, supplied the kitchen and bath fittings. All the baths are of limestone or marble and an intricate radiant-heated mosaic floor graces the master bath.

The kitchen combines casual comfort with design sophistication—and has dramatic views over Pleasant Valley. It features double Sub-Zero refrigerators with freezer drawers, a double Wolf range, and a honed Calacatta marble island. With a wood-burning fireplace, dining area, built-in desk, and recessed TV, the kitchen area is truly a multi-use family space.

In a smart design twist, the master suite, which opens to the back terrace, is on the first floor, as are two other bedrooms, while the remaining two en-suite bedrooms are on the second floor, along with a large second family room/sitting room.

On the walk-out lower level, an antique English cellar door opens to the state-of-art climate-controlled wine cellar, which has reclaimed French terracotta tile flooring, antique lighting and a brick vaulted ceiling. Also on this radiant-heated level are a wainscoted billiards room with fireplace, mirrored gym, entertainment room, kitchenette, and powder room.

At the back of the property, panoramic views can be enjoyed from bluestone terraces edged with brick walls and low hedging, evocative of formal English gardens. Flowering perennials, and lush groundcover enhance the beautiful setting. A dedicated gas line feeds the grill, while the large brick fireplace has a gas start for year-round outdoor pleasure.

The mechanicals of this fine home include a whole-house Kohler generator, heated garage, extensive A/V distribution system delivering audio to all the principal rooms, and strategically positioned security cameras.

This discreetly elegant residence, located in one of Somerset County’s most prestigious neighborhoods, will appeal to those looking for a manageable-sized home in a secluded and secure location. While allowing exceptional privacy, this home is located but moments from Bernardsville’s town center with sophisticated shopping, dining, cultural and recreational opportunities. Major highways are conveniently accessible and stations for Manhattan-bound trains and buses are in town.
