Welcome to this week’s Property of the Week…
This magnificent custom-built Colonial situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in East Hanover, NJ (just 25 miles West of NYC!) is framed by tall trees and elegant landscaping.
Your highest expectations are realized from the very moment you step inside. The covered entry and show-stopping two-story foyer with beautiful turned staircase and wrought iron details serve as your introduction. From here you feast your eyes on the gleaming hardwood floor, open floor-plan and designer palette throughout.
To your right, the formal living room with beautiful archway entry is awash in sunlight, courtesy of tall windows.
The formal dining room is warm and elegant, where hosting holidays and special occasions will make memories last a lifetime. The dinning room is located right off the kitchen and has a butler’s pantry / dry bar for convenience.
The gourmet kitchen with center island is a chef’s dream. Beautifully renovated in 2019, it features hand-glazed tile, marble countertops, custom cabinetry with Baldwin hardware, two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two dishwashers, a Wolf range and oven (with 6 gas burners and griddle) and a Farmhouse sink.
The adjoining family room features a gas fireplace, beautiful built-in entertainment center, and large windows which overlook the backyard and pool.
As the beautiful turned wooden staircase leads you to the second floor, the inviting master bedroom welcomes you with double doors. This spacious suite has plenty of natural light, a spa-like bath, stone-tiled shower, double marble vanities, high-end fixtures, and natural stone floor. The bedroom has its own dressing room/sitting area which was converted to a custom designer closet.
There are 3 additional bedrooms on the second floor. Two bedrooms share a luxurious bathroom with tub and shower. Another guest suite features its own full bath and overlooks the backyard, with tree top views. All bathrooms were renovated in 2019 with new glass shower doors and marble floors. All bedrooms have custom California closets.
The finished lower level serves as the ultimate entertainer’s quarters! It includes high ceilings, a recreation room, a private 6-person movie theater, and a bonus room which can be used as a gym, guest room or home office. This is where you will want to relax, unwind and have fun! There is also a fully renovated full bath on this level and plenty of storage. The house has three sump pumps, a complete French drain system, and a built-in whole house generator.
This home has plenty of room to relax and entertain inside and out. The beautifully landscaped .4-acre property provides the perfect backdrop for every occasion. The backyard features a Gunite heated saltwater pool with 3 waterfalls, and underwater lights. Additional outdoor features include mature professional landscaping, designer lighting, outdoor Sonos speaker system, sprinkler system, an iron fence and brick pillars surrounding the property, and an iron electric gate (with remote access).
The outdoor kitchen has a Wolf gas grill with gas side burner, a Subzero mini fridge, granite countertops, and a beautiful custom-built outdoor gas stone fireplace which contributes to the welcoming ambience.
