Inspirational California Contemporary

An architectural style composed of clean, bold lines, California Contemporary homes offer a fresh take on modern design. This bright, airy home in Bernardsville uses essential elements like wood-clad vaulted ceilings, exposed stone work and hardwood floors as a common theme in its impressive four bedroom, four-and-one-half bath layout which measures nearly 4,500 square feet. 

Set on over five woodland acres, entertaining is effortless amid tranquil surroundings on an expansive Trex deck and roomy paver patio overlooking a stone-edged pond with waterfall, meandering stone walls and innovative up-lighting.

Approached by a long paved drive and set far back from the road, this privately-situated residence is finished in cedar siding and stone with large expanses of glass punctuating the façade. The interior’s dramatic window walls, skylights and glass doors maximize views and natural light, an approach that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor spaces. Sleek, sophisticated gathering areas are custom-painted in neutral colors and earth tones for a relaxed ambiance.

Introducing the floor plan is a beautifully carved wood door hinting at the emphasis on form, texture and organic materials. The entrance foyer reveals an oversized living room set under volume ceilings and anchored by a soaring two-story stone fireplace. Sunlit and spacious, dining room windows frame views of mature trees and open lawns. A delightful bar room features a custom-built media center and volume ceilings, while the game room’s reclaimed brick floor in a herringbone pattern and artwork on the ceiling are distinctive touches. 

The on-trend center island kitchen contains cherry cabinets, granite counters, a vaulted ceiling dining area and sliding glass doors to the patio. Upper-end appliances from Fisher & Paykel, Viking and GE Monogram streamline meal prep. Nearby is a well-equipped laundry room and updated powder room.

Set away from the public spaces is a first floor master bedroom offering two walk-in closets fitted with organizers from California Closets and a French door to the rear patio. Remodeled in 2018, the master bath is detailed with two custom vanities topped in quartz, radiant heated porcelain plank tile floors, a walk-in shower enclosed in custom glass and a private water closet. Upstairs are two bedrooms with ample closet space and forested views that share a bath.  An open staircase serves all three finished levels of the home. 

Additional gathering spaces in the daylight lower level include a large family room, 1,500+ bottle capacity wine cellar, home office, exercise room, full bath and fourth bedroom. Completing this home is a two-car garage and a Generac whole house generator. Originally built in 1984 and updated throughout by the present owners, this home offers a design aesthetic that’s strongly connected to its lushly landscaped surroundings.
