Mahwah Home Styles
The town of Mahwah may be a dream on its own but when you look at the homes within Mahwah you may realize that your dream can be even greater than you imagined. There are many residential types for you to choose from within the town including, cape cods, historic homes and some of the best multi-million dollar mansions and estates in the area. When it comes to the types of homes and the design of the homes the most notable may be the historic homes.
Mahwah has a rich history and many of these historic homes were built with great grandeur and were true estates in their time and remain as truly remarkable structures. One of these historic homes is the basis for the premier neighborhood of Rio Vista. This property is known as the Crocker Mansion which was built in 1907. From an architectural standpoint, the Crocker Mansion is of the Jacobean style which was a phase of the Renaissance style of architecture in England influenced by the Italian Renaissance. In fact, the Crocker Mansion itself was modeled after the Bramshill House in Northeast Hampshire, England. Jacobean style is characterized by decorative details as well as flat roofs and open parapets.
The influence of these old-world styles can be seen throughout the community as well in some other more newer builds from French inspired chateaus and English country estates to modern day castles that truly deserve the name of luxury manors.
If classical and traditional is not your style than Mahwah has contemporary styled homes as well which can be found in the Deerhaven private community which sits on the Ramapo Mountains and makes for incredible views. Here and elsewhere in Mahwah you will find some homes that are of the lodge style and some that even have a separate private log cabin. These styles are playing off the heavy influence that nature plays within the town of Mahwah. In almost every property the landscape and natural setting plays a large part in how the homes are designed and the use of windows is maximized to allow many vantage points for enjoying the natural beauty that is Mahwah. Most notably in this town is that most properties are 1 acre and larger so many of these luxury homes are situated on what some might consider their very own park. Others utilize the large amounts of space to create their own equestrian estates.
