The Heritage - 10 Ponds Way, Oakland, New Jersey
Over 7,000 sq. ft. of living space

It is our pleasure to present The Heritage, an elegant 2-1/2 story Colonial manor situated on a premier piece of property at the end of the cul-de-sac in Long Hill Estates, Oakland's most sought after address. Set high on a knoll with a very private backyard, this custom-built home offers gracious living at its finest. Quality materials, superior craftsmanship and high-end appointments throughout combine to create a great venue for living and entertaining. This home is designed with all of the amenities you would have chosen yourself.

A walkway of paving stones and bluestone leads to the covered front porch which features a Juliet balcony supported by four tall columns. Enter the home through the beautiful front door with leaded glass window and sidelights into the dramatic entry foyer with its soaring barreled ceiling, marble floor, gorgeous curved staircase, and wide entrances with decorative mouldings. Natural light enters from the large window above. The center hall separates the living/sitting room and the formal dining room. A deluxe butler's pantry with wet bar, compact refrigerator and wine reserve connects to the dining room and the kitchen and includes a passthru to the great room. Both the sitting room and dining room are richly appointed with raised panel wainscoting and crown moulding and feature a spectacular herringbone-patterned red oak floor with cherry inlay. The electrical outlets in all of the rooms on this floor are installed in the base moulding to make them less conspicuous.

The eat-in gourmet kitchen is spacious and opens to a large breakfast area that overlooks the backyard. As expected, the kitchen features all state-of-the-art appliances, two dishwashers, custom cabinetry finished in an eggshell white with coffee glaze, and granite countertops. From the breakfast area, step down into the magnificent great room with its beamed cathedral ceiling, hardwood floor, wall of windows, built-in granite topped cabinets and raised hearth fireplace. The great room is designed as an entertainment center and features a pre-wired wall to accommodate your wide-screen T.V. It opens to the game room which features a coffered ceiling and applied chair rail panels on the walls. The game room is large enough to accommodate a full-sized billiard table, is prewired for a wide-screen T.V. and includes two 20 amp receptacles to power video or pinball games.

At the opposite end of the first floor, a hallway connects the kitchen to a mud hall which leads to the laundry room and exercise room/library. A long deck stretching across the back of the house is accessible from the breakfast area, mud hall and exercise room. An elevator that services all three levels of the house and the guest powder room open off this hallway, which continues to the very private master bedroom suite. This luxurious space features an octagon coffered ceiling, elaborate mouldings, and a gas fireplace. The fireplace is flanked by built-in cherry cabinets, which include a dedicated multimedia cabinet and a pre-wired wall for your wide screen T.V. Dual walk-in closets connect to the exquisite master bathroom which contains a steam shower, raised whirlpool tub, granite topped vanity with double sinks, linen closet, and a private toilet area. Like all the bathrooms in the home, the master bath features radiant-heated flooring.

The second level of this gracious home offers four additional bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have their own full bathroom and the "Jack and Jill" suite shares a bathroom. All of the bedrooms have hardwood floors and spacious closets. The large third floor attic is accessible from the upstairs hallway via pull-down stairs. The lower level of this home includes a finished playroom, second mud room, elevator access, maid's quarters and full bathroom. A mechanical room, storage room and three-car garage complete the downstairs. Nestled in the rolling hills of northern Bergen County, Oakland offers residents small town charm, excellent schools and tranquil rural surroundings. New York City, located approximately 25 miles east, is easily accessible so that residents may enjoy all the cultural and historical wonders of a major metropolis.
