Listing DescriptionSituated in the desirable Old Short Hills section, this engaging colonial presents a charming picture. The ivy-covered brick exterior gives this home its unique appeal, while landscaping provides the ideal backdrop.
Inside, a spacious foyer offers open entry to the adjoining rooms. The living room is distinguished by a wood-burning fireplace, professionally wired for a flat screen TV above the mantel. Adjoining the living room is the formal dining room, where your guests are comfortably seated and a boxed window offers views of the private backyard. The family room is accessed from the dining room. The raised ceiling adds to the sense of space, while large windows and French doors supply abundant natural light.
The updated kitchen is clearly made for anyone who loves to cook and entertain. Custom cabinets are topped with granite counters and a tumbled stone backsplash, while quality stainless steel appliances are arranged for easy access. A peninsula breakfast bar makes for comfortable seating and the ideal spot for casual dining. Located off the kitchen are stairs to the lower level with access to the attached 2-car garage.
From either the kitchen or family room, you have access to the bluestone patio. With this effortless transition to outdoor living, you will look forward to warmer months and the opportunity for entertaining and al fresco dining.
The fourth bedroom, currently used as an office, completes this main level. In addition to a double-width closet, there is a huge walk-in closet with built-in storage. A full en suite bath ensures your complete comfort, whether you use this space as an office, guest or in-law suite.
Three more bedrooms and two full baths are located on the second level. The master suite is only a few years old, and features a large bedroom with three fitted walk-in closets with built-ins, which will house even the most extensive wardrobes.
The master bath features an antique style vanity with tile counter top, claw foot bathtub and a walk-in shower.
The remaining two bedrooms are decorated with restful sleep in mind, and aptly served by the up-to-date full bath.
The lower level is finished to include a nicely finished recreation room, full size laundry room and a guest room with en suite full bath. Storage and access to utilities are also located on this lower level.
