Originally built as a farmhouse, this 1935 unique home isreminiscent of times past, but renovations create a model for today’s contemporary living. Situated on a little over half an acre of landwith mature trees and greenery, the picturesque property and setting is reflective of the rich history of Short Hills.
An arched door to the main foyer welcomes residents and visitors into the home where great care and attention have been put into crafting modern day comforts, keeping in the simplistic style and original charm of the property. The Foyer leads into the Living Room with hardwood floors and a fireplace with decorative wood mantle. The walls throughout the home are painted in warm, gracious hues giving off a richness and inner tranquility. The Dining Room has two large windows and features a chair rail and hardwood flooring.
The large kitchen is open and airy. Dark cherry cabinetry sets a dramatic contrast against the granite countertops, white tile backsplash and top-of-the line stainless steel appliances including an extra-large Monogram side-by-side refrigerator and freezer. A sizeable island with cabinets, storage and a granite counter anchors this striking room, and a slate tile floor and walk-in pantry adds the finishing touch. A Breakfast Area with a large picture window leads into the inviting Family Room with beamed ceiling. The many windows throughout illuminate a warm glow as the sun reflects off the colonial gold shade of paint. Admirers of early American style will appreciate the original wide planked hardwood floor. A full wall fireplace with a handsome wood mantle and slate surround complete the intimate and homey feel great for kicking back and enjoying an afternoon by the fire, watching a movie or spending some quiet time with family and friends. A Mud Room, and Powder Room keep the area functional and uncluttered.
A Bedroom and Full Bath on the first Floor provide overnight guests privacy and comfort.
Two staircases (one spiral staircase) lead to the Second Level with three additional bedrooms and an expansive Master Suite with large walk-in closet and vaulted ceiling. The Master Bath has been renovated in grand style. Dark wood vanities offset with granite countertops and tile floor with inlay. A spa-like soaking tub and walk-through stall shower allow for luxuriating and relaxation. Two additional Bathrooms are loaded with charm and great attention to style and detail.
Outside, a true highlight of this home is the secluded and private grounds, stunning with mature landscaping and in-ground heated pool. A private bluestone patio just off the back of the property is perfect for dining al fresco.
Effortless and unique, this home maintains its distinctive structure and character with today’s modern enhancements and elegant updates. This is the perfect chance for the family who appreciates the beauty of vintage homes to be part of the wonderful community of Short Hills.
