This classic John James custom craftsman style home located in the Deerfield section of Short Hills will stand the test of time. Designed by John James Architect, well known for their custom residential architecture and design with an emphasis on sustainable “green” practices for comfort and energy efficient living, this home is the epitome of simplistic, clean lines combined with sheer elegance.
Step into the double story entrance foyer and feel the openness yet inner warmth of this ageless beauty. The coffered ceiling and tumbled marble tile set the footprint for the rich, elegant setting that emanates throughout the rest of the home. The easy flowing floor plan and rich tasteful embellishments are seen throughout the home in the woodworking and architectural features. The Living Room showcases a wood fireplace with decorative wood mantle, large picture window and recessed lighting radiating a cozy, yet traditional feeling. The Dining Room’s arts and crafts style wood paneling, two built-in china cabinets and French pocket doors make this a striking space for intimate dinners and more formal entertaining. The Family Room features a coffered ceiling, wood fireplace with floor to ceiling stone surround and teak mantle, picture window and French doors leading to an expansive bluestone patio, a handsome room with exceptional elements that highlight the best in entertaining in all seasons.
The kitchen and breakfast room are central to the design of the first floor. From the granite counters and center island to the breakfast bar, Signature custom cabinetry and Viking appliances, the Kitchen is the ultimate in design and craftsmanship. On sunny days, open the French doors of the breakfast room and enjoy your morning coffee looking out onto the bluestone patio with exceptional views of the triple-tiered backyard.
The stately staircase takes us to a grand second floor with unlimited charm starting with the expansive Master Suite with dramatic foyer, two dressing rooms and an octagonal sitting room with turret style wood ceiling and two over-sized walk–in custom closets. The Master Bedroom is a spectacular example of fine architecture with a tray ceiling, wood fireplace with marble surround and wood mantle. The spa-like Master Bath offers the finest in materials and comforts. Relax while you soak in the Bain tub or rejuvenate in the walk-in steam shower. A Guest Suite provides private quarters for visitors or extended family — they will unquestionably appreciate the beauty of the suite’s wood burning fireplace. Two additional bedrooms with hardwood floors and custom built-ins joined by a Jack and Jill bathroom with subway tile backsplash are picture perfect spaces for growing siblings.
Step into the two story media room or study with loft, designed with semi-circular window for spectacular skyline views. Additional mirror image spaces on either side of the loft can be finished for a potential sixth bedroom and bonus room. Completing this level is an over-sized linen closet and new laundry room with industrial tile floor, glass subway tile backsplash and Signature cabinetry.
The Lower Level has a finished Recreation/Media Room and the home’s fireplace. Invite friends to join you in your very own dance/yoga/spin room for some exercise or simple relaxation. Guests who desire more privacy than offered on the second floor suite will find comfort in the lower level suite with bedroom and en-suite bath. Loads of additional storage space can be designed for any homeowners needs including a wine cellar or additional bath.
This home exemplifies classic craftsmen style yet overflows with modern appeal. Set in a storybook town, but minutes from world-class shopping, theatre and restaurants not to mention the Blue Ribbon school district — who could ask for anything more –this one is a show stopper.
