A TOUR OF NOTABLE HOMES

The self-guided tour through picturesque neighborhoods of Westfield and environs features five enticing residences representing a range of architectural influences and design sensibilities.

At the edge of the links of Shackamaxon Country Club this handsome new European-style home with moldings and built-ins and collectibles, seems almost at one with its setting. Inspired by those found in the chateaux of France, the kitchen, with maple beams, stone walls and cobbled limestone floors, adds richness and texture to this exceptional, one-of-a kind home.

Sleepy Hollow Manor House
This unique Tudor style residence, circa 1929, was the weekend and summer home of the original owners of Madison Square Garden and was once featured in Better Home & Gardens. Today it is the definitive background for its owners’ vast array of antiquities.
Indian Forest Elegance
Flourishing in the very heart of Westfield’s chic Indian Forest section, this magnificent estate was built by designer Henry West. The grand residence is visually impressive with such stunning attributes as a 16’ barrel vaulted great room, multiple fireplaces and newly renovated designer kitchen.
Romantic Carriage House
The conversion of this Sleepy Hollow carriage house was performed in the 1940s by the renowned architect C. Detwiller. Cleverly set back from the road, this decorator’s residence nestles among lush gardens. The not-to-be-missed four season classic conservatory was imported from England.
Stylish "smart house" in Westfield
This newly built, custom Shingle style residence, partly inspired by the 1920’s Colonial that preceded it, is now a masterfully built, technologically advanced “smart house” complete with workshop, outdoor kitchen and in ground pool. The covered porch with columns graciously beckons us to explore inside beyond its massive center hall, marvelous kitchen and relaxed family room.
