A Restored Arts and Crafts Treasure Asks $1.4M in New Jersey
Built in 1911, the Gustav Stickley–designed bungalow still has its original fieldstone fireplace and distinctive joinery.
This recently listed home in New Jersey is a well-preserved example of American Arts and Crafts architecture. Completed between 1909–11, the residence was designed by Gustav Stickley, an influential furniture maker and early Arts and Crafts advocate as the publisher of The Craftsman magazine. The property embodies Stickley’s philosophy, with rooms finished in American chestnut and other handcrafted features, such as a fieldstone fireplace and hearth made of original ceramic tiles.
The home’s former owner, renowned lighting designer Paul Marantz, led restoration efforts that added custom light fixtures to blend with original sconces and pendants by Stickley. Other modernizations included the addition of a period-style kitchen and updated bathrooms—one of which features a Japanese soaking tub imported from Tokyo. Throughout the home, beamed ceilings complement a mix of maple and oak wood floors, while numerous windows overlook lush landscaping.
