This historic Colonial Revival mansion, located in Summit, New Jersey, was originally designed by noted architect John N. Cady, and has recently been restored by John James, AIA, with unsurpassed attention to detail in preserving its authenticity. Referred to as the Martin House, having been built for Archer and Mary Martin, the home reflects all of the elements that were considered "de rigueur" by the landed gentry of that era. This beautiful 7 bedroom, 4.2 bath home is adorned with leaded glass and oculus windows, ornamental moldings and fireplace facades, banded borders inlaid into hardwood floors, original pocket doors and coffered ceilings -- just some of the beautiful architectural elements that have been preserved. The original barn and carriage house built at the turn of the century was updated in 2010 as a pool house overlooking the pool and deck area. The original horse stalls were magically transformed into changing rooms, bathrooms and galley kitchen, safeguarding its authentic feel. At the center is a spacious open game room with slate flooring for added recreation. A dramatic carpeted second-floor media room with rustic cross beams spans the pool house -- the perfect game/party room or guest quarters! Set on 1.36 acre of verdant property with private level lawn, mature shade trees and garden beds, this fabulous home, extraordinary both inside and out, is truly a one-of-a-kind offering in Summit, New Jersey!
