Classic features draw our attention as we approach this stately colonial. A stone walkway cuts through an expansive lawn,passing a lantern and mature shrubbery to reach the front door. Once inside, we gain access to spacious rooms from an elegant center-hall foyer. Contained within an open, easy-flowing floor plan are high ceilings, abundant windows and warm hardwood floors. While the main living areas are clearly designed for those who love to entertain, four exquisite bedrooms,
including a luxurious master suite, occupy the second level. Casual entertaining and indoor play are well served on the finished lower level, and the walk-up attic leads the way to ample storage and the potential for even more finished space. Centrally located
in the heart of Short Hills, local shopping, recreation, top rated schools and commuter trains into midtown Manhattan and Wall Street are only minutes from your front door.
Luxurious spaces are revealed at every turn as you find it is easy to imagine your own furnishings, artwork and personal treasures placed here and there. The frontto-
back living room with woodburning fireplace opens through
French doors into a dramatic great room where the cathedral ceiling adds to the sense of space. Large
windows and French doors with transoms above welcome the
sunlight while providing a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living. The formal dining room is graceful and elegant, ready to host your next dinner party. Built-in corner cupboards house table linens and
display fine china or collectables. A set of French doors open to the family room at one end and the
library at the opposite end of this room. When relaxation or quiet reflection are in order, the library awaits with cozy wall-to-wall carpeting, ample
sunlight and built-in cabinets with shelves.
Rich cherry finished cabinets extend to the ceiling offering a wealth of storage while granite counters give way to a tile backsplash and supply plenty of
workspace in this sunny kitchen. With thoughtful planning , professional quality appliances are never more than a few steps away. The result is a kitchen that will satisfy even the fussiest chef. A breakfast
bar is perfect for a quick meal and the separate breakfast area redefines casual dining. Adjacent to the kitchen is the family room where overstuffed sofas and chairs invite us us to relax and enjoy quality time with
loved ones.The lower level recreation room is
comfortably finished and includes a wood-burning fireplace and built-in entertainment center. A game room,
storage, powder room and laundry room complete this level.
At the conclusion of a hectic day, everyone will find peaceful slumber awaits in their own personal retreats. Four bedrooms, nestled on the second level, each provide just the right atmosphere to allow for individual expression and the opportunity to relax and unwind. The master suite includes a large bedroom, separate sitting
room, cavernous walk-in closets and a luxurious master bath with whirlpool soaking tub and large tile shower. The second bedroom enjoys the benefit of an en suite full bath. The remaining two bedrooms are ably served by the hall bath, well equipped to handle the morning rush. In the hallway, walk-up access to the attic resolves
the question of where to store occasional-use items and presents the possibility for even more finished space.
