Approached by a gated entrance, this gorgeous shingle style Colonial sits on 3.34± park-like acres in the desirable New Vernon section of Harding Township.

The final touches, including finishing the lower level and third floor, were completed in subsequent years.
An open double-height foyer lends a sense of grandeur to the entry, while a Palladian window above the Juliet balcony fills the space with natural light. The impressive double doorway opens to a window-walled great room offering dramatic sightlines of the rear property. Formal spaces flanking the foyer include an elegant formal living room, powder room, dining room with wood-burning fireplace and adjacent butler’s pantry.
A gallery hallway separates the formal and casual spaces. The open great room’s focal point is a double-sided gas fireplace, and this grandly-scaled room also offers access to the rear terrace. Adjacent to the great room is a spacious eat-in kitchen featuring a center island with breakfast bar seating, granite countertops, upscale appliances and a roomy walk-in pantry.
