In upholding his reputation, Harvey Caplan owner of Rolling Hill Developments, has once again created a luxury home with distinctive architectural design, top-grade construction and superior craftsmanship. His talent for matching exceptional home design to the character of the surrounding land is underscored in this colonial masterpiece situated on over a half acre of professionally landscaped grounds.
Built in 2013 with superlative upgrades in 2014, the property invites you to delight in its newness yet relish in the comforts of a well-loved home. Walk through the front covered portico and enter a gracious two-story center hall foyer with chair rail molding, a chandelier and oak hardwood flooring. The first floor plan has plentiful space and flow for both indoor and outdoor entertaining and living. The foyer is anchored between a formal Dining Room with chair rail molding and a Living Room with hardwood flooring, an abundance of natural light and built-in speakers allowing for music when entertaining.
The gourmet Kitchen is the aspiration of all cooks and foodies – large, open and loaded with every detail to please even the most discerning epicurean. Custom white cabinetry is offset by a black granite counter, and the center island stands out in the reverse – white marble atop a black cabinet with drawers for additional storage, an Elkay service sink and space for stools. The best in appliances include a Wolf six-burner range, Kitchen Aide double oven, custom paneled Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, Sub Zero wine refrigerator and custom paneled Bosch dishwasher. A large Breakfast Area joins the kitchen with access to the rear patio. A Butler’s Pantry mirrors the style and color scheme of the center island bringing continuity to this area.
Grab a snack from the large walk-in pantry and head out through the connecting Mud Room with tile flooring, built in bench seating with hooks for coats and athletic equipment and an oversized closet.
Adjoining the kitchen on the right is the Family Room where you’ll be guaranteed to spend long hours in winter relaxing with family by the gas burning fireplace with black granite hearth and coffered wood ceiling making a vivid statement. Open up the sliding doors to the rear patio where dining al fresco or hosting a summer BBQ can be done in complete style and comfort.
A Library with two built-in wall units of shelving and storage opens to a cozy Office/Den, a great work area or quiet place to escape for a few hours of reading. A Powder Room is located in an ideal spot by the kitchen and completes the well laid out first floor design.
The panache of the first floor continues up to the second floor. The Master Suite is impressive starting with the Master Bedroom with trey ceiling, hardwood flooring, built-in speakers, two walk-in closets with custom shelving and upgraded lighting. A door separates the bedroom from the Master Sitting Room, a nice touch for a little additional privacy. The Master Bath is sheer heaven. A white granite countertop set on a dark wood double vanity with Rohl fixtures is reminiscent of a five star hotel. Ease away any aches and pains in either the oversized custom shower with two corresponding tiles and three types of shower heads or in the therapy soaking tub while listening to tranquil music through speakers.
Three additional bedrooms have walk-in closets with organizers; bedrooms two and three share a Jack and Jill bathroom with double vanity and marble countertop. A third bath allows plenty of options for family and guests. Plus a well-designed laundry room with tile floor and sink.
The Lower Level’s appealing blueprint begins with a tile foyer entry and ample under stair storage, there’s also a second Mudroom with built-ins and a closet. A finished carpeted recreation area needs a few comfy chairs and a big screen TV to transform into the perfect play/hangout for guests and family alike. Versatility has been built into several areas of this home including the lower level’s guest room. Here, the rubber flooring can double as a gym area – with walk-in closet and full bath – this room is adaptable for various uses.
An oversized three-car garage is another added advantage with plenty of storage.
For those who value new construction, but still appreciate the timelessness and elements of solid architecture, this Chatham property is the perfect combination. A home built only yesterday with the lasting endurance of forever.

About ChathamVISIT NEIGHBORHOOD
The attractive areas of Chatham Borough neighboring Chatham Township share a common heritage and are often referred to as Chatham, or The Chathams. Chatham has been named one of the top ten places to live in the United States by Money Magazine! Chatham Township shares various joint public services with Chatham Borough: the school district (created in 1986), the library (since 1974), the municipal court (created 2010), the medical emergency squad (since 1936), and the decades long, recreation program.
Chatham School Information
Families moving to the Chathams often tell me that the area’s biggest draw is the very high standards of the schools. Parents here place a high value on education, resulting in one of the most outstanding systems in the area. Schools in both Chatham Township and Chatham Borough come under the administration of the School District of the Chathams, supported by a very active group of parents and community members in the Chatham Education Foundation. Since their inception in 1997 they have raised over $300,000 to enhance Chatham’s schools.
Chatham High School was recently recognized with a Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence, the highest award conferred on schools by the US Department of Education. It was ranked 8th among New Jersey’s 322 public schools by New Jersey Monthly magazine in 2010. The school strives to meet the educational needs of every child with a carefully tailored curriculum which includes 18 or so AP courses as well as providing support for children with special needs. Students excel outside the classroom too – Chatham High School has an award winning marching band, a lively theatre program and top of the league teams in basketball, tennis, cross-country and soccer.
One unique feature of the Chatham Middle School is the way each grade is divided into “houses,” creating a smaller, more intimate atmosphere. There are four elementary schools: kids go to Milton Avenue, Southern Boulevard, or Washington Avenue from kindergarten to grade 3 and then on toLafayette School for the final two years of their elementary education.
Chatham kids love the summer camps run by the Work Family Connection.
You can continue learning when schooldays are long gone at the Adult School, which offers a huge variety of classes in everything from arts and crafts, through to challenging courses on business and legal issues.
