H. T. Lindeberg, Architect. 1916 House on My Tour



I saw this landmark property built in 1916 today on the broker open house tour. I've been admiring it ever since I moved to New Jersey in 1973 so this was an opportunity not to be missed. It was grand in scale yet very livable.

An elegant vintage mansion located in the Historic District of Morristown, built during the "Gilded Age." Designed by H.T. Lindeberg, one of America's most prominent 20th Century domestic architects. Unique location offering privacy with 25 acres of conservation land in back plus walk-to-town and library convenience in front. Great detailing -- deep decorative moldings, high ceilings, transom windows, sweeping staircase and landings, 7 fireplaces, 9 family bedrooms, 6 full baths and 2 half baths, in-law apartment, updated kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, mudroom/laundry off kitchen. Price: $2,675,000. Taxes: $49,019. I can show it to you if you are interested.

Often noted as "H.T. Lindeberg", Harrie was one of the greatest residential architects to ever practice in the US. The former McKim, Mead and White employee and assistant to Stanford White had a keen eye for what was both warm and commanding in tone.

Oh Rosemary, lucky you to get to see the inside of this gorgeous home. I hope you sell it, I would love for you to get the commission, surely enough to take a jaunt to Europe.
