REFINED RETREAT - Poised on a private cul-de-sac off a most picturesque Harding road, this gracious brick home is the quintessential country retreat ideally located 5 miles from vibrant Morristown and 30 miles from NYC. Classic yet modern, this light-filled home offers a flexible combination of open and private spaces for work, play and entertaining. The bucolic 4-acre property features a renovated (2023) saltwater pool and hot tub, koi pond with waterfall, and large brick patio for entertaining. The centerpiece of the carefully conceived first floor is the spacious updated gourmet kitchen opening to a huge family room with French doors to the patio and pool area. Also on the main floor are a formal dining room, living room with stone fireplace, den with adjoining guest room/second office, another updated full bath, and the primary bedroom suite with gas fireplace - all with access to the outdoors. An additional ensuite bedroom, wood-paneled office and mud/laundry room complete this level. Upstairs houses two more bedrooms and a full bath. The lower-level features a large rec room with handsome wood paneling and tile floor. Less than a mile away, there are gorgeous National Wildlife Refuge hiking trails. Morristown, Madison, Bernardsville and Basking Ridge are all conveniently accessed for shopping, restaurants, entertainment and transit.

Forbes once called part of Harding Township in Morris County one of the 'Top 25 Richest Zip Codes' in the United States, and the elegant homes and manors spread throughout the area reflect that title. Home to some of New Jersey's most beautiful residences, Harding Township is 20 square miles of open country, pastures and farmland, and thousands of acres of protected green space with lakes and streams scattered throughout.

Even though it feels a world away, Harding Township is just 21 miles from Newark and 32 miles from New York City. Interstate 287 runs through the northern portion of the community, and several train stations along the New Jersey Transit Rail System's Morristown and Gladstone Lines are just minutes away from Harding.

Divided into two communities, New Vernon and Green Village, over 40 percent of the undeveloped space in Harding Township is protected. Many of the elegant estates have been here for decades, passed down through generations, and now sit on the National Register of Historical Places.
