A custom-designed home in a secluded neighborhood in Short Hills, this self-labeled contemporary behemoth borrows characteristics from contemporary and post-modern architecture, merging them to create this.
The first floor houses the great room which is, very obviously, the focal point of the home. The nearly triple-height space it occupies is topped off with a centralized skylight, bringing light straight into the grand space. The second-floor corridor space wraps around the perimeter of the great room, overlooking the space with custom-designed metal and glass railings.
The eat-in kitchen opens up onto the rear deck that overlooks the home’s personal, outdoor oasis — which includes a pool and a hot tub — in a private backyard.
On the second floor, residents can find the master suite that includes his and her closets, a master bath, and a private outdoor deck. Additionally, the floor houses two more bedrooms with a shared, dual-sink bath.
The finished basement offers a recreation room, leisure room, sauna, and detailed kitchen with wood finishes.
The majority of the finishes in the home create an environment that feels more cold than comfortable, and much of the spatial proportions offer similarities to hotels rather than residences. But the site offers desirable land and top-of-the-line spa-like amenities.
The home, at 6,740 square feet, has four bedrooms and four baths. Located near Millburn’s top-rated schools, downtown area, parks, and an easy commute to New York City, this home provides many benefits for potential buyers.
The home, located at 37 Kean Road, is asking $1,625,000.
