Spectacular Harding Township Contemporary

Form follows function effortlessly in a custom-built contemporary that is a true design masterpiece. The artful use of glass to frame lush views unites architecture and nature in a seamless way, while the sun-splashed open floor plan of approximately 6,000 square-feet displays an innovative use of space.

This modernist home offers six bedrooms, six full baths and two powder rooms as well as an attached four-car garage. Situated at the end of a cul de sac on 3.74 acres of privacy, the setting includes green lawns, leafy woodlands and an expansive deck spanning the rear of the home. Approached by a circular paved drive, the wood and stone-accented residence features striking architectural lines punctuated by towering windows and sharply angled rooflines. A custom-designed double door entrance reveals the vaulted ceiling foyer illuminated by art glass wall sconces. Straight ahead, the dramatic great room is anchored by a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace which is flanked by sets of sliding glass doors to the deck. Natural light fills this generous space detailed with vaulted ceilings, a chrome-accented bar area, hardwood floors, a wall of media and display cabinetry and an overlook from the gallery hallway above. Nearby is an elaborate mirrored powder room. Special occasions in the Zen-like dining room bring entertaining to a whole new level; the towering ceilings, recessed lighting and hardwood floors combine beautifully in this elegant room. Casual get-togethers are easily hosted in the kitchen’s dining area and fireside family room, both connected to the updated center island kitchen that was completely renovated with new appliances and cabinetry. It presents granite countertops, a tile backsplash, upgraded wood cabinets, hardwood floors and a newer collection of stainless steel and paneled appliances. The family room offers a sunny window wall, access to the deck, a handsome brick fireplace edged by a wood mantle, cathedral ceilings and a skylight. Also on the main floor are spacious master and guest suites. The sophisticated master bedroom has a modern fireplace, two sets of sliding glass doors to the deck, a wall of built-in cabinets, sitting area and serene views of the peaceful grounds. A marble-accented master bath contains a platform tub tucked under a picture window and separate shower. In the three-room guest suite, a bedroom adjoins the vaulted ceiling sitting room with tall windows and chair rail moldings as well as an extra-large bath. The staircase set inside a windowed tower ascends to the second level gallery for access to additional bedrooms and baths as well as a private home office. That same staircase serves a beautifully finished lower level offering a craft or hobby room, mirrored exercise room, wine storage room, bedroom and full bath.

Harding Twp. NJ

Harding Township (New Vernon), NJ real estate market

Established in 1922, Harding Township was named for then-President Warren G. Harding.  Its location 45 minutes from New York City belies the pastoral scenery; where horses, sheep, and cows graze in meadows and open fields. There are about 50 miles of bridle trails winding throughout Harding Township, which are maintained by the Harding Township/Green Village Bridle Path Association. This atmosphere is ensured for future generations since 40% of the township is protected open space.

New Vernon and Green Village are two sections of Harding, in southeastern Morris County. Forbes magazine ranked New Vernon as "one of the 25 most expensive zip codes" in the country in 2006.

Green Village is an unincorporated area within both Harding Township and Chatham Township. Located just north of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, Green Village has its own post office and fire station.
