Dazzling views characterize a country estate named Hildene whose name is taken from Old English words meaning hills and valleys. This grand one-owner home is of monumental quality and European scale. Beautifully sited upon 12-plus acres, the scenic property offers an abundance of privacy and countryside vistas. Grounds surrounding the manor are level with large expanses of lawns. Other eye-catching features are the endless pool and spa overlooking panoramic views. A poolside patio and walkway span the rear elevation. The front entrance courtyard has a pebble circular drive for easy turnaround, while extra parking is located beside the four-car garage. 

Hallmarks of this stately home include a covered entry porch to the grandly-proportioned front hall.  Architectural moldings and trim embellish all the rooms. Upon entry, magnificent views are immediately seen through the wall of French doors in the main living area.  The hall opens to a formal dining room on one side and a small hallway with guest closet and half bath leading to the library with an elegant fireplace. So well designed for country living, and always with the view in mind, the great room is a light-filled space that is the heart of the home with a stone fireplace and repurposed 17th century ceiling beams.  The great room is completely open to the spacious, well-designed kitchen with a butler’s pantry featuring a wet bar and expansive walk-in pantry. 

The kitchen presents a tumbled marble floor and backsplash, softly-hued marble countertops, a six-burner range and wall ovens.  The mud room with built-in cabinetry and desk supports a coat closet, second staircase, laundry room, half bath and stairs to the basement. It also accesses the four-car garage.

The first floor’s easterly wing leads to a high ceilinged 19 by 26-foot artist’s studio with northern light and a glass door to the dramatic indoor exercise pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the view, creating a magical space for flowers and plants.

The main staircase to the upper hallway anchors both wings. A sophisticated master suite contains a sitting room, a bedroom highlighted by a wood-burning fireplace and Brazilian cherry floors. Pocket doors separate these two rooms. The master is completed by a marble bath with double tiled shower, a roomy tub, closets, artistic dual vanities and dual walk-in closets fitted with wardrobe organizers.  

 The westerly wing contains two bedrooms with en suite baths and connects to a study/computer room and separate laundry room/bath. A hall leads to the guest or in-law suite arranged with a sitting room, bedroom, full bath, fully equipped kitchen and dining area. This suite can also be directly accessed from the secondary staircase in the first floor mudroom/garage area. One of the thoughtful features of the layout is the abundance of connecting rooms linking various parts of this extensive home, an arrangement that ensures private spaces. The entire second floor is accessible from either staircase.  

A full, unfinished basement, with interior and exterior access, houses 13 zones of radiant heat, four zones of central air conditioning, plus a full bath/changing room with pool access and huge storage rooms. Two staircases at each end of the basement level lead outdoors.

Tewksbury in Hunterdon County is well-regarded for its Blue Ribbon schools, abundant parkland including Christie Hoffman Park, Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary and Willowwood Arboretum, dedicated hiking trails, the Tewksbury Trail System for horseback riding, outdoor recreation, numerous cultural events, nearby world class golf facilities and outstanding fishing at Ken Lockwood Gorge.
