Situated on a picturesque, tree-lined street in the Poet’s section of Short Hills, blocks to Harshorn Elementary and Gero Park, this updated split level will surely impress. Inside this quality home, spacious rooms flow effortlessly along polished hardwood floors with artful details on display at every turn. Bright inviting colors, bathed in natural sunlight, spread throughout five finished levels. With ample storage, abundant windows and an easy flow, there’s room to spread out, relax and entertain. Sitting on a little less than half of an acre of land with manicured trees and shrubs, the driveway guides you to the front door and into the entrance foyer.

The living room features wood fireplace with traditional wood mantle and its location, adjacent to the dining room offers dinner guests a place to dine in style. The centrally located eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and honed granite counters makes cooking both gratifying and delightful. Completing this level is the inviting family room with wood fireplace and with access to the rear deck overlooking the yard- it certainly will be a popular spot!

Just up a couple of steps you will find the first set of sleeping quarters including 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The private master bedroom awaits you with walk-in closet. Relax away the cares of the day in the Master bath, complete with tub shower and vanity. The two additional bedrooms and bathroom will assure a restful night’s sleep for all your overnight guests.

On the third level, two additional bedrooms, full bathroom and office/6th bedroom provide options to grow with your changing family’s needs.

And there’s more…the ground and lower levels include playroom with tile floor, powder room and access to the two car garage, and the lower level is home to a spacious recreation room and storage and laundry room.

This home exemplifies classic, traditional style yet overflows with modern appeal.  Set in a storybook town, but minutes from world-class shopping, theatre and restaurants not to mention the Blue Ribbon school district — who could ask for anything more –this one is a gem!
