Description: Located in the desired Poet section of Short Hills, this pristine Center Hall Colonial enjoys enormous curb appeal. Surrounded by tall trees, lush lawns and set in privacy, it’s difficult to believe thriving downtown shopping, dining and the Midtown Direct train are only minutes away. Inside the entry foyer, your eyes meet gleaming hardwoods, deep crown molding and soft colors - an introduction to the fine craftsmanship and exquisite taste displayed throughout the home. A wood-burning fireplace set in marble with a classic mantel is focal point in the living room to the left. The formal dining room is to your right, with large windows, wainscoting and decorative chair rail.
A French door in the living room opens up to the family room with beautiful built-ins and featuring large windows overlooking the secluded, park like backyard. A first level bedroom to the left of the living room, bathed in sunlight and decorated in soft muted colors, is perfect for overnight guests or could easily serve as a home office. For the busy home cook, the gourmet, eat-in kitchen features custom cabinets topped by granite counters, while Viking appliances are arranged for easy access. The kitchen breakfast area features plenty of room for a table with chairs and there is also a center island breakfast bar, great for a quick meal. Sliders lead the way to a large deck, encouraging outdoor dining and entertaining at every opportunity.
Four generous bedrooms with good closet space and two full baths are located on the second level. The master bedroom includes an en suite full bath, while the hall bath with Jacuzzi tub serves the remaining bedrooms.
Casual enjoyment is found in the finished lower level, featuring a recreation room, media room and a gym. A powder room with pedestal sink, a laundry room, access to utilities and plenty of closet storage can be found on this level as well.
Outside, the yard is deep, private and serene, with a deck for outdoor barbecues, and plenty of room for active play and gardening.
