Built in 1913, this historic home in Morristown was originally built as the Junior Clubhouse for the Morris County Golf Club. The home was conceived by Florence Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt, of the prestigious American family, also built Florham — an English-Baroque mansion in Madison that is now owned by Fairleigh Dickinson University.

The home features five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 4,100 square feet of living space.

The main entrance to the home brings you into the grand foyer that opens right into the dining room and living room. The home includes details that range in scale from delicate to grand — deep 10.5″ custom crown moldings, 9.5′ ceilings, a stone wood-burning masonry fireplace, and hardwood floors that still include original golf cleat markings.

The home carries a very club-like feeling to it, aptly described by the Daily Record as a “golfer’s dream house.” The study, with its red walls, also includes floor-to-ceiling bookshelf space lining three of the four walls.

The home’s attic space completes the club vibe with some of the walls and the entire ceiling paneled with long thin strips of hardwood, the remaining walls being wattle and daub — an application popular in Tudor-style architecture.
