Only One Estate Remains at Pheasant Crossing in Basking Ridge, NJ - Open House Sun., Oct. 16, 2011

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 / Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums

BERNARDSVILLE, NJ – Pheasant Crossing, a collection of custom multi-million dollar homes indicative of the sweeping “shingle-style” estates found in the Hamptons, is approaching a sell-out.  According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, only one estate remains for sale on the cul de sac in Basking Ridge by the award winning talents of Mark Built Homes. Priced at $2,950,000, the home is available for quick delivery providing its owners with the opportunity to be settled in their new home for the upcoming winter holidays.


A special Open House will take place on Sunday, October 16, 2011 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.


The beauty of Pheasant Crossing begins with its location in Somerset County, NJ. Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums Vice President David Schoner explains, “Home to some of the most exquisite estate properties, Bernardsville and Basking Ridge have long held the prestige of alluring upscale purchasers to its sweeping countryside, renowned golf courses, excellent schools and convenient shopping and restaurants. Residents at Pheasant Crossing enjoy all of that with exceptional views. Yet, they are within minutes of major business areas via Routes 202/206, 78 and 287.  They also enjoy an easy commute into New York City via train or bus.”


Each estate has been personally designed and built by builder Michael Markovitz of Mark Built Homes in the old world tradition reminiscent of the prestigious Gatsby-style estates.  Schoner states, “Michael is a third generation builder, having learned his craft from his family, who instilled upon him a simple philosophy - ‘it’s about the customer and the details – it’s always about the details.’ An architect by trade, Michael is able to first design each home with the most requested features and ‘details’ included.  Then, he’s on-site overseeing its construction to make sure each home provides its owner with the highest level of fine craftsmanship.”


This estate illustrates Michael’s craft and ability to lead a team of top notch tradesmen and professionals.  New Homes Associate Margaret “Marge” Mueller of Coldwell Banker in Bernardsville describes them as “nothing short of spectacular.”  She states, “Just the exterior alone with beautiful roof lines, cedar shingles, pergola and stone evokes a distinctive characteristic that invites purchasers ‘home.’  Inside, the space is designed with imagination, creativity and a flair for fine living.  There are detailed architectural trim and elaborate moldings, most of which are hand fashioned on the site, as well as hardwood floors throughout the home.  Just enter the two-story foyer with sweeping staircase and sneak a peek at the gallery for fine art and you know this home was created for those who have a personal style and grace.”


Entertaining is elegant in the formal living room and dining room with butler’s pantry.  Detailed soffit ceilings add grandness to these rooms.  Mueller points out that the elegance is balanced by wonderful “family-style” space in an expansive family room with traditional fireplace.


She adds, “The adjoining gourmet, center island kitchen features furniture grade wood cabinetry, granite countertops, walk-in  pantry and professional line appliances . A morning room opens to a stone terrace.”


The first level also features a warm cherry library with wainscoting, coffered ceilings and granite surround fireplace; two powder rooms; and family staircase. “One of the builder’s signature touches on this level is the family entrance from the split four car garage which leads into a mud room with built-in storage benches,” notes Mueller.


Upstairs, owners will be pampered in their spacious master bedroom retreat, which spans a full wing of the home. The suite includes a fireplace; sitting room with distant countryside views; custom designed walk-in closets; and marble master bath with whirlpool tub set in a marble platform, soothing shower with multiple heads and full body spray in a frameless glass enclosure and dual vanities in custom cabinetry.


Five additional spacious bedrooms suites with full baths, laundry room with walk-in storage closet and a signature walk-in cedar closet complete the second level of the home.  Other fine details include hardwood floors throughout, ten foot first floor ceilings, foyer chandelier lift, plenty of storage closets and extensive recessed lighting.


A special Open House will take place on Sunday, October 16, 2011 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information or to set up a personal tour, please contact New Homes Associate Margaret “Marge” Mueller at Coldwell Banker in Bernardsville on cell at (908) 803-4104, in the office at (908) 766-2900, or visit
