Early 20th-century elegance with 21st-century amenities. You’ll want for nothing in the opulent Tudor mansion located at 120 Lloyd Rd in Montclair, NJ. This stunning property was designed by the renowned award-winning New York architect Charles Lewis Bowman. And his meticulous attention to detail can be found from the plaster rosette ceilings to the bespoke oak and walnut woodwork throughout. Every room is positively breathtaking.
From the moment you step into the foyer with its high ceilings, you know you’re in for a treat. The first of six ornate fireplaces can be found in the luxurious living room. Wood beamed ceilings accent the hardwood floors and wood-paneled walls. Three large sliding glass doors allow access to the backyard from the fun family room. Imagine the extravagant dinner parties you’ll be hosting in a formal dining room that looks like something out of “The Age of Innocence”. A second fireplace can be found here as well.
The gourmet kitchen partners beautifully handcrafted walnut cabinets with modern sleek stainless steel appliances. Let the kids eat at the breakfast bar while you get their school lunches ready or entertain guests while finishing up the hors-d’oeuvres thanks to extra seating around the island. The custom tile backsplash is quite an eye-catcher. A separate breakfast area allows you to eat at more leisurely pace. Natural light floods this space thanks to its floor-to-ceiling multi-paned windows. Keep all your china, crystal and formal flatware tucked away in the large butler’s pantry. For your convenience, the servants’ wing is located over the kitchen.
A third fireplace can be found in the two-story library. Its plaster rosette ceiling and large window brightens up the wood-covered walls, with custom bookshelves filling three of the four walls. Reach the upper balcony via a lovely spiral staircase with ornate iron railing. Another access point can be found on the second floor.
Located on the second floor, the master bedroom features custom crown molding, a separate dressing area, and another fireplace in the attached sitting room. Three other bedrooms and two more bathrooms can also be found on the second floor. Even more bedrooms and another bathroom are located on the third floor.
For the wine connoisseur, the 3000 bottle wine cellar keeps your entire collection stored at the perfect temperature. Another adobe-style fireplace can be found in the billiards room. Just outside the billiards room is your amazing backyard oasis. Lush landscaping shelters you from the hustle and bustle of city life. Relax among the trees next to your very own serene pond. Practice your serve on the tennis court. Drink afternoon tea or read the Sunday paper out on the stone paved patio. Swim laps and cool off from the summer heat in the gunite swimming pool. An outdoor kitchen with full bar makes entertaining a breeze.
