Property Description

Located in Far Hills, OVERLEIGH is among the grandest of Somerset Hills estate properties. In the mid-90s the current owner, with an astute architect, meticulously recreated 2 of the 3 original wings. The residence is centered on 10 gloriously landscaped acres accessed by a long drive that winds past a dramatic reflecting pool. A side portico connects to the attached 3-car garage. OVERLEIGH has retained all the splendor of an earlier era, with stained-glass windows, elaborately-mantled fireplaces & exquisitely handcrafted woodwork. A flowing floor plan of 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms & 2 powder rooms comprises 3 levels with a 5-room apartment on the third floor. A special variance has been granted by the town allowing a portion of the building to be used commercially; that variance transfers to the next owners.
