Living at 340 Tillou Rd

Welcome to 340 Tillou Road in the heart of South Orange just minutes to Midtown Direct Train, Blue Ribbon schools, excellent restaurants, shopping and all downtown South Orange has to offer. This stunning 6 Bedroom, 3 Full and 2 Half Bath home, extensively renovated from top to bottom, boasts incredible details, property and magazine-worthy spaces. Simply put, this is the kind of home where all you’ll need to do is pack your bags and move in.

As you arrive, take in the meticulous landscaping (bursting with blooming perennials) and the home’s stone façade and charming gambrel roof. A regal covered front entry leads to the graceful front door flanked by original stained glass sidelites. Enter into the Entry Foyer and take in the high ceilings, period moldings, stunning hardwood floors and the gracious original staircase. Curl up by the fire or enjoy a cup of tea in the luminous Living Room with an enormous, dramatic picture window that allows sunlight to glow deep into the room. Dining is divine in the Formal Dining Room with windows at two exposures, soothing hues and a gorgeous, silver leaf chandelier. Flow easily from the Dining Room into the completely renovated Gourmet Kitchen that could be straight out of a magazine. This room is a chef’s dream with its crisp white shaker style cabinetry, quartz countertops, an enormous island with tons of storage and a high-end Thermador appliance package. A dreamy Breakfast Room and Built in Beverage Station only add to the kitchen’s appeal. Take in the view of the deep, lush backyard oasis and note that indoor/outdoor entertaining is seamless with easy access to two fabulous Bluestone Patios with outdoor speakers and custom lighting. A Mudroom Area, with its own convenient side entrance, and tasteful Powder Room round out the First Level.

When it’s time to retire for the evening, it doesn’t get better than the First Level Primary Suite. Luxury abounds in this private and sundrenched room with a sleek fireplace, killer views of the tranquil backyard and 2 Walk In Closets. Prepare to totally relax in the spa-like Primary Bath complete with marble basketweave tile, a fireplace, a large frameless glass shower, and an elegant custom double vanity with marble countertop. Moving upstairs, the stately staircase leads you to three bedrooms (1 is ensuite) steeped in sunlight, with generous closets and lovely period details. Each bath is renovated to perfection with on-trend finishes. Convenient Second Floor Laundry rounds out the Second Level. The immense Third Level comprises a Loft/Office and Bedrooms 5 and 6. These spaces are entirely flexible and can be used for crafting, more work from home space or even an au pair.

And there’s more…The Lower Level simply dazzles with the BEST Recreation Room around. This “walk out” room boasts a modern fireplace and a stunning stone accent wall. This room also delivers stellar backyard views and opens up to a magical Bluestone Patio perfect for warm summer nights. Staying in shape is a breeze when you have a spacious Bonus/Exercise Room with custom mirrors and soft flooring. Rounding out this level is a beautifully renovated Half Bathroom. Whether it’s movie watching, card games or working out, the Lower Level provides all the space you need for any entertainment pursuit.

Words truly can’t describe the perfection of this home and the outstanding restoration this house has undergone. Once you see all of the tasteful and luxurious upgrades, you are sure to fall in love.
