Listing Description

Sold! Blessed with enormous curb appeal and resting on almost a half-acre of beautifully landscaped property, this spacious custom home enjoys a prime spot in one of Short Hills' premier pocket neighborhoods. Updated and expanded in 2010, attention to detail is evident from the very moment this fine home comes into view. As the paver walkway meanders through manicured lawns, the covered front entry invites you to come inside and explore. Crossing the threshold you are introduced to the quality craftsmanship and fine detailing that will continue throughout. In the foyer, the Jerusalem gold limestone floor, outlined by a darker ribbon inlay, gives way to the warm hardwood floors found in the adjoining rooms. Broad entries direct your attention to the living room and formal dining room, where entertaining, even on the highest level, is done with ease. The living room spills into the adjoining family room which continues into a delightful sun room with sliders to the patio and fabulous backyard. With this open floor plan and effortless flow to outdoor living, this exceptional home brings elegance and comfort together with enormous success. Across the foyer, the formal dining room provides a wonderful atmosphere for a dinner party. Guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy lively conversation, while the savory aroma of home cooking makes its way in from the nearby kitchen. The heart of every home is the kitchen, and this home is no exception. The flow from the family room and sun room into this designer kitchen create both culinary and social hubs, where everyone will naturally gather and linger. As special treat for the busy home cook, even seasoned skills will be elevated to the next level.

Top-of-the-line appliances are on hand to help get the job done, while those unexpected extras, like the pot-filler, under-cabinet, recessed and pendant lighting all help make everything go smoothly. It is breakfast area that will draw interest. Set beneath a domed ceiling with windows and adjacent to tall windows and French doors to the patio, this breakfast area clearly redefines casual dining.
