Descriptions: A one-of-a-kind home with remnants of the original ranch that once existed, but magnificently transformed into a place that evokes the feeling of Italy in this stylish abode. A Mediterranean Villa in Short Hills, built in the 1960's and completely renovated, expanded and customized inside and out in late 1990's until now. Featuring convenient one floor living with 3BR’s 2.1 baths on the main level with 2 car garage coming into a kitchen/family room with a wonderful fireplace.
There is a dramatic 2-story entry with a sweeping curved staircase embellished with terra cotta risers on the stairs. On the second floor are 3BR’s & 1 bath, a huge attic which could be expanded, plus a little meditation room with a back staircase leading to the laundry room and a side door to the driveway. In the basement is a huge rec room, storage rooms, exercise area, changing room for the pool with full bath, and an outside staircase leading to the completely fenced yard with a glorious pool.
Amazing flowering vines cover the fence in back and there is not only a dog run but plenty of room for swings. A fabulous paver block circular drive, patio off French doors from sunken living room, first floor library, 2 fireplaces, luxurious master suite with spa bath, tons of closets and tray ceiling with French doors leading to the pool with a fountain. Music piped in everywhere – faux painting, European touches, copper gutters, a great flow for entertaining and tons of custom finishes. This is the perfect house for a 'Staycation.'
