Boasting a gracious main suite with breathtaking views of the reservation, a voluminous walkout basement with a gym and theater, a convenient rear staircase, and five second-floor bedrooms, all with private baths. Less than 1 mile to downtown Millburn and the Midtown Direct NJ Transit train to NYC, with busing available to the highly ranked Millburn Township schools.

7 Bedrooms, 6 Full & 3 Half baths, two car garage, two fireplaces with gas starters, grand open spaces, soaring ceilings, custom moldings and hardwood flooring throughout, chef-inspired Kitchen, high-tech systems, state-of-the-art theater, mahogany deck and so much more.
