Welcome to 356 Harding Drive, a sunlit updated Tudor on a quiet, peaceful street near the South Mountain Reservation. With six large bedrooms, four full and two half bathrooms, you’ll have ample room to grow your family and entertain guests. Every inch of 356 Harding has been upgraded with all the old-world details kept in tact. Walk through the professionally landscaped front yard on the lovely brick path to open the grand front door. A lovely detailed tiled entry vestibule gives you space to clean your shoes, while two coat closets in the foyer lets your family hide away all your coats and shoes. A magnificent center staircase greets you and guests as you come home, with the original iron railing running all the way to the third floor.

Fine oak hardwood floors run throughout the first floor, into the giant Formal Dining Room that is lined with high, handsome, wood wainscoting. Notice the original leaded glass doors—now surrounded by double sided glass—as you walk into the three-season porch. Marvel at the sleek slate floors and original wood ceiling. The porch leads out to the large Backyard Deck, which features a covered area for your grill. From the Deck, your summer party guests can revel at the beautiful, landscaped and wooded backyard that sits down below.

In the Formal Living Room, there is a gorgeous, original stone fireplace that has been upgraded with a gas fire for your ease of use. Against the wall, you’ll notice the functional yet stunning built-in bookshelves and cabinets. You can host everything from family game night to posh holiday parties in this magnificent space. Off the Living Room is a cozy den for nightly relaxing in front of the television. Off the Kitchen, there is a convenient Powder Room with custom marble sink. The large Eat-In Kitchen is every chef’s dream: the first thing you will notice is the commercial grade, six-burner double oven Garland range. Other top-of-the-line appliances include a Miele dishwasher and Sub Zero refrigerator. Silestone countertops offer plenty of prep space and a convenient pantry gives you enough room to store all odds and ends.

To head to the Second Level, either walk up the back staircase off the Kitchen or the front stairway in the Foyer. There are two Hallway Bathrooms on this level: one for the kids and one for guests. The first Hallway Bathroom features double sinks, custom cabinets with marble countertops, and a bathtub/shower combination. The next Hallway Bathroom has a beautifully tiled stall shower, as well as more custom cabinetry and a double sink. There are four Bedrooms on the Second Floor, all with gorgeous hardwood floors and historic details, including the home’s original door handles. Bedroom #2 and Bedroom #4 both have two closets, while Bedroom #3 includes a stunning built-in TV cabinet and a large closet. When the day is done, retreat to the huge Master Bedroom, large enough to accommodate a king-sized bed and more. The first closet has custom storage shelves and hanging rods, while the second walk-in closet is a true masterpiece. This giant closet includes rows of shoe shelves, several hanging rods, and enough room so you will never have to fight over closet space again. The en-suite Master Bath includes a sunken bathtub with air bubble jets and a separate stall shower, as well as more custom cabinetry to store your linens and cosmetics.

Glide up to the Third Level to find two more large Bedrooms, a fully finished storage room, and another full bathroom. The Third Floor is the perfect space for your live-in nanny, long-term guests, or your in-laws. There is ample room for their privacy, plus the Hallway Bathroom is complete with porcelain tile, marble countertops, and custom cabinetry. Back down in the Finished Basement, you’ll have plenty of space to let the kids play in the Recreation Room while you work out in the separate, carpeted Exercise Room. Additionally, there is a large Laundry Room with extra refrigerator for storage plus an attached, oversized two-car garage. From roof to foundation, 356 Harding has everything you need to live comfortably.

South Orange is a top-rated community with excellent schools, incredible outdoor space, and easy access to New York City. Catch the Jitney to the South Orange train station in the morning to get Manhattan in less than 40 minutes via the Midtown Direct train line.
