PROPERTY OVERVIEW

94 Knollwood Road Entry Hall

Nestled in a prime, tucked away location in the heart of Old Short Hills, this exquisite historic home has been re-created with its original character in mind. From its expansive one acre property with manicured garden beds and lush perennials to its interior refinements, this is a house to come home to.

94 Knollwood Road Dining RoomRich hardwood floors prevail in many rooms, contrasting with the light plaster walls and custom trims. The dramatic front hallway, with soaring ceiling and elegant staircase, flows through to the rear of the home. Along the way it introduces an oversized Living Room, featuring large windows with an inviting window seat and a dramatic wood burning fireplace, one of six fireplaces in the home. The front hallway also introduces a formal Dining Room with wainscoting, fireplace and conveniently located Butler’s Pantry as well as an inviting Den/Office with built-ins and French doors to the rear property.

94 Knollwood Road Kitchen

The rear of the home features a custom gourmet Kitchen dressed in cream cabinetry set against black stone countertops and professional-grade appliances, complete with two sinks. The 60” Wolf dual-fuel range is a chef’s delight, with 4 high-output burners, grill, griddle and two electric ovens.

 

94 Knollwood Road Family Room

The adjoining breakfast room enjoys rear views with a built-in window seat and access to the rear gardens. Nearby is a convenient rear staircase offering access to all four levels of the home. A bank of windows that let the light pour in showcase an inviting first-floor Family Room, the perfect place to relax and unwind at the end of the day with spectacular views of the lush grounds.

94 Knollwood Road Master Bedroom

Four bedrooms reside on the second floor, each with intricate details and three with fireplaces. The inviting master suite is reminiscent of a bed and breakfast, featuring a charming window seat, wall of closets and an oversized master bath with two vanities, jetted tub and stall shower. Two other bedrooms are generously sized with ensuite baths, and the fourth is the perfect second floor Den/Office.

94 Knollwood Road Rear Property

The third floor features a large bedroom with ensuite bath and plenty of storage while the lower level recreation room offers added leisure living, along with nearby laundry facilities and storage rooms.  

Ideally located just blocks to New York City trains and The Racquets Club of Short Hills, this fine residence delivers upscale suburban living at its best.
