4 Stoney Ridge Lane, Tewksbury Township
This exceptional 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom custom home was designed and built by the owner. Oriented to maximize appreciation of its natural setting from inside and out, this property is perfect for a buyer looking for a high-quality and architecturally distinctive home.
The floor plan of the home has open lines of sight and is flexible for gathering and entertaining. The home’s interior features include a well-conceived floor plan, spacious rooms, paneled doors, generous trim, and molding details. Bountiful windows and recessed lighting throughout the home bring in natural and supplemental light through the day and evening. The open site lines allow for visual connections between the home’s interior spaces and its natural, sylvan setting from every room.
Up a gently winding driveway, the house was built on a ridge overlooking a stream-fed valley below. Visitors are immediately struck by the design of the home. Its welcoming entrance with a space created for a baby grand piano and the openness allows for unfettered views of the sunlight-flooded rooms with extensive trim work and natural materials.
The formal spaces of the home include a living room, dining room, and great room. The living room is accessed through the entryway and features a high ceiling with wood floors, a stone fireplace with raised hearth, and oversized windows.
The primary bedroom is off of the living room, as is the formal dining room. The formal dining room is one of the many excellent gathering places of the home. It features a large butler’s pantry with lighted glass door cabinets, granite counters with additional cabinetry below, a tiled backsplash, and a sink. The walls of the dining room feature extensive millwork with wooden medallions and a coffered ceiling above. Three large windows look out into the backyard. The dining room connects to the great room and the kitchen through a doorway with openings on either side featuring decorative wrought iron scrolls. The great room is undoubtedly the central gathering space of the home. It also features a stone masonry fireplace with raised hearth, an amazing coffered ceiling with a geometric design, two separate sitting areas, a window seat with cut-out moldings above, plentiful windows all around, and access to the rear deck through sliding glass doors.

The spacious kitchen looks out into the great room and is flooded with natural light. It features custom cabinetry, granite countertops with an under-mount stainless steel sink, gooseneck spray faucet, decorative tumbled travertine tile backsplash, and a large center island. The tiered island with pendant lighting above has a ceramic cooktop and a granite countertop with cabinets and countertops matching the rest of the kitchen. The dishwasher and wall ovens are stainless steel, while the Sub Zero refrigerator is wood-paneled and matches the cabinets. The large island accommodates seating for five and overlooks the deck through sliding glass doors. Additionally, there is a built-in wine rack and glass front cabinets perfect for displaying treasured items. Built-in shelves flank the entrance to the kitchen.
The master bedroom suite is located on the other side of the living room.

The secondary bedrooms and den or office space are located on the home’s lower level, which can be reached from a staircase off the entryway. The lower level is carpeted and has many of the same features as the rest of the home. The den/office space is at the center of the lower level and features a built-in shelving unit with storage and access to each bedroom, the third full bathroom, and the large mudroom/laundry room. Both bedrooms are well-appointed with large windows, closets one a walk-in, and glass doors accessing the property’s rear yard.

The large laundry room features a washer and dryer and extensive counter space with storage underneath, a ceramic sink, and a storage closet. It leads to the two-car garage, which is extra deep to allow storage and features automatic garage door openers. Beyond the garage is a covered porch area perfect for enjoying the hummingbirds, woodpeckers, deer, and other woodland animals that meander by.
The lower-level office with its outdoor entrance could easily be transformed into a guest suite with its half bathroom and separate laundry hook-up.
Systems of the home include an oil-fired boiler, multi-zone central air conditioning, 200 amp electrical service, 4-bedroom septic system, private well, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers.
The exterior of the home is sided with a mix of clapboard and stone. The roof of the home is asphalt shingles. A paver stone patio can be reached in the back of the home through the lower-level bedrooms. A wooden deck runs along the back of the house and can be accessed through sliding glass doors in the great room. Another maintenance-free deck can be reached through the kitchen and looks over the front of the property. In addition to the front door, there are two additional entrances to the home. Both are located under the covered porch, leading to the great room and the other to the office/guest suite. A large barn located to the side of the home features two bays for parking and a large loft space above with doors that open to the outside.
