This home may be located in Morris Township, New Jersey but it was inspired by Caribbean homes. A gated entrance leads to an elevated hilltop location backing to parkland, a setting that offers tranquility, privacy and winter views.

Evoking the feel of a world-class resort, the owners set about to create a home that replicates the carefree lifestyle and luxuries that they enjoyed while on vacation. A dramatic curved double stair entrance leads to a Travertine marble foyer with pillars and archways framing the two-story great room, a main focal point and entertaining space.

The see-through fireplace sets the ambiance in this room and the adjacent kitchen, while a bay of French doors leads to the bluestone patio. A sound system through the house further sets the stage for memorable gatherings. There is ample outdoor space for expansion and a future pool.

The kitchen contains a large center island to serve as both a prep area and buffet. Double sinks, ovens, warming drawers and dishwashers offer ease and abundance to the cook at mealtimes. The dining room’s fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere for entertaining.


One wing of the home is dedicated to the master suite and home office. The generous master bedroom features dual walk-in closets and a master bath with glass enclosed shower. A walk-in pantry, laundry room, mudroom and powder room complete the first floor. The second floor features three generous en suite bedrooms.

The lower level entertainment area features a glass-enclosed home theater, pool table, games table, music space, wine cellar and full bath. There is also access to the three-car garage and a dumbwaiter to the kitchen from this part of the home. This home is listed for $1.625 million with Turpin Realtors, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
