Located in sought after Hartshorn section, this classic colonial is loaded with curb appeal. Inside, spacious rooms are arranged in an open flow, where the neutral decor welcomes a wide array of tastes and furnishings. Picture windows bathe rooms in natural light, while gleaming hardwood floors add texture and warmth. This is a home that you will be proud to showcase at every opportunity.

Lush greenery and colorful plantings frame the exterior of this fine home.  As the covered front portico extends a warm welcome, you cross the threshold into a spacious foyer.  While the elegant curved staircase leads to the second level, open entries direct you attention to the living room and family room. In the front-to-back living room, the wood-burning fireplace, takes center stage. Adjoining the living room is the formal dining room, poised to host your next dinner party. The nearby kitchen offers the busy home cook all the elements necessary to complete a successful meal every time. Cabinets and counter space are in abundant supply, while quality appliances are arranged for easy access.  The center island with breakfast bar is great for a quick snack, and a separate breakfast area makes casual dining a pleasure.

Down the hall is the spacious family room inviting you to kick back and relax and a powder room completes the first level of this home.

On the second level you will find 4 bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and all with ample closet space. The Master Suite wing awaits you with large sitting room, gas fireplace, double closets and an additional walk-in closet. Relax away the cares of the day in the spa-like Master Bath complete with jetted tub, walk-in shower and double vanity.

And there’s more…the finished lower level includes a solarium, kitchen with serving area, recreation room, bedroom, walk-in storage room and two bathrooms

Outside, the property is beautifully landscaped and private.  Well over three quarters of an acre provides ample space for active play, gardening and entertaining. It is not often that a home of this quality comes along.  With little to do except bring your furnishings and personal touch, this is a fabulous opportunity to enjoy all Short Hills has to offer in complete comfort and supreme style.
