Property Description

Private Historic Compound! Built in 1805 the Morris Manor is the centerpiece of a 177 acre estate surrounded by 10 outbuildings, manicured lawns and impeccably maintained stonewalls. Painstakingly restored in 1997, the manor house represents the finest in craftsmanship and classic design combined with modern amenities subtly introduced for today’s taste and comfort. The Morris Estate was part of an original land grant from the King of England to Major General Staats Long Morris and later passed on to his brother Lewis Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The three story “manor house”, set on a fieldstone foundation, dates back to the beginning of the nineteenth century and boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 10 fireplaces within its nearly 10,000 sq ft of living space. A stunning ballroom graces the lower level, adorn with a magnificent floral relief ceiling designed by Grant LaFarge and an adjacent butlers pantry. Imagine what possibilities await within the preserved stables, guest house, an expansive greenhouse, annex building with the original bowling alley and squash court and other terrific outbuildings. Adjacent to 1109 acres state forest and is like no other.
