Move right in to this picture perfect, uniquely designed home situated on a prime sought after location in the heart of Short Hills. Built in 1999 with plenty of living space, this home features 7 gracious bedrooms, 6 ½ baths, elegant millwork throughout and a grand curved staircase that makes a real statement upon entering the home.

A circular drive leads you through a columned covered front portico into the spacious Entry Foyer featuring grand archways that define the easy flowing floor plan and rich tasteful embellishments seen throughout the home. The soaring ceilings, warm hued hardwood floor with mahogany inlay borders and impressive architectural woodwork provide an inviting first glimpse to all this special home has to offer.

Proceed into the chef’s dream Kitchen where custom cabinetry, top of the line appliances accented by fine granite and ceramic tile backsplash provide the ideal setting for the preparation of a gourmet creation or a quick snack at the breakfast bar. Enjoy a causal meal in the adjacent, sunny Breakfast Room with large windows and French doors leading to the spacious backyard. A conveniently located Butler’s Pantry equipped with custom cabinetry, granite countertops and a wine refrigerator serves your needs while entertaining in the neighboring Formal Dining Room that features an intricately coffered ceiling showcasing a striking Dennis & Leen crystal chandelier sure to impress your guests. After dining, you’ll take advantage of the choice of spacious rooms in which to retire: the airy Living Room with its stunning fireplace and large windows, the Family Room highlighted by a beamed ceiling, custom built-in cabinets, French doors leading to the patio and a floor to ceiling stone fireplace that’s the focal point of the room. Each room provides an inviting setting for conversation, movie watching or snuggling up by the fireplace with a book. A handsome mahogany paneled Library/Office, an additional bedroom and full bath, a fully equipped Laundry Room as well as a conveniently located Powder Room appointed with custom details complete the first level.

When it’s time to retire for the night, the stately curved staircase will lead you to the second floor Gallery Landing, 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 full baths. Luxury surrounds

you in the Master Suite as light streams through large windows with 3 different exposures. The suite is impeccably designed with an enormous His & Hers walk-in closet accessible through an elegant Dressing Room while additional custom built-in cabinetry assures there’s a place for everything. An en suite spa-like marble bath is the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day as you soak in the tub that sits majestically beneath large mullioned windows facing the backyard greenery. 4 additional bedrooms (2 with en suite baths and one currently being used flexibly as an Exercise Room) have plenty of closet space and flexibility for family and guest use. A full Hall Bath and a rear staircase leading to the 1st level Kitchen wing round out the second level living space.

And there’s more… the large rear patio and sprawling flat lawns are ideally suited for outdoor entertaining…picture the space with multiple tables and lounge chairs, appetizing smells coming from the barbecue and room for all of your outdoor hobbies. A full finished basement with expansive L-shaped Recreation Room with high ceiling, tiled Mud Room, an additional bedroom, a full bath, garage access and an abundance of storage space provides plenty of potential to meet changing needs.

47 Delwick Lane is an architectural masterpiece and dream home in every way. Within walking distance to downtown shopping, Blue Ribbon schools and NYC transportation, this home is truly a show stopper!
