New Listing: 45 Forest Drive, Short Hills
Stunning "new construction" classic colonial ideally situated on nearly a half acre of level property in one of the most coveted areas of Old Short Hills. Completely gut renovated to perfection in 2020 and expanded in all the right places, this chic and sophisticated dream home is as close to new construction as you will find in this prime bucolic location. Nearly everything is new from the foundation up including electrical, plumbing, systems, windows/doors, moldings, custom cabinetry, designer fixtures and so much more.
Modern and fresh, this residence boasts a stunning open first floor plan with a wonderful flow, offering truly modern living at its best. The formal rooms are gracious and grand while the heart of the home is equally impressive, comprised of an extraordinary gourmet kitchen, an inviting breakfast room with banquette seating overlooking the lush rear property and an expansive family room with large windows and French doors leading to a bluestone patio. The kitchen is a chef's delight boasting a large walk-in pantry, white custom inset cabinetry, quartz countertops and backsplashes, under cabinet lighting and professional grade appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Wolf 8-burner gas range with two electric ovens, commercial range hood and two Miele dishwashers. A private office with walls of windows and French doors, a powder room and a laundry center with custom cabinetry, generous counter space, sink and room for two washers and two dryers complete the first level.
Upstairs, a luxurious primary bedroom suite boasts a large custom walk-in closet and bright spa-like bath featuring a custom white vanity with two sinks, a large soaking tub and exquisitely designed walk-in shower. Three additional bedrooms and an impressive two-room hall bath complete this level.
The lower level is a welcomed surprise offering high ceilings and a sizable recreation room, powder room, mudroom, storage room and an oversized two-car garage reconfigured to accommodate large SUVs. The rear property is a rare find in Short Hills: flat, expansive and private with all new specimen plantings. Truly an oasis in a prime location in the heart of Short Hills and just a 5-minute stroll to both the Short Hills train station and nationally top rated Glenwood elementary school. Ready for September 1st occupancy.
