Description

Denbrooke, situated high on the Bernardsville Mountain, is a shining example of Classic Revival architecture, featuring six soaring pillars capped by a two-story portico and graceful pediment. Built in the early 1900's, one of the mansion's original residents was legendary New York philanthropist Brooke Astor. She employed noted architect Musgrave Hyde to make alterations to Denbrooke in the 1920s, and subsequent renovations have taken place within this expansive 9,800 square-foot mansion over the decades. Set on six-plus acres, the professionally landscaped and deer fenced property offers extensive hardscaping, mature specimen trees, expansive level lawns, a perennial garden and an oval swimming pool edged by new cool deck surfacing. Three finished levels encompass nine bedrooms, seven full baths and three powder rooms. The main entry reveals a tree-lined circular drive with a roomy side and back parking court. Finished in stone and stucco, the residence's traditional design features a columned front porch overlooking level front lawns, stone walls, established gardens and rear bluestone terraces. Highlights of the gracious layout include tiger oak and wood floors, high ceilings, oversized windows and generously sized rooms. An enduring Somerset Hills estate, Denbrooke is a rare listing.
