Fresh and bright, this spectacular estate offers it all with a major expansion that added a new family room, primary bedroom suite and exercise room across three levels. The stone mansion, appropriately named "Appin", is a residence of historic significance built by John Stewart Jr., perched up high and overlooking one of the most prestigious streets in Old Short Hills. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy one of only a few residential indoor squash courts in the US as well as outdoor tennis, basketball, swimming and plenty of room for football and soccer. The 2.3 acre property is framed by sprawling lush flat lawns, stone terraces, a 4-car over-sized garage and pool house with kitchen, full bath and laundry. The impressive formal rooms have recently been refreshed, offering lofty ceilings, striking millwork and a soaring staircase. More informal but no less impressive is the chef's kitchen boasting a La Cornue dual-fuel range and other professional appliances, opening to the new sun-filled family room with spectacular views of the expansive rear property. The new primary suite also offers an abundance of windows and light as well as impressive closet storage while the lower level is a welcomed surprise, offering an assortment of rooms created for the individual tastes of its occupants including a billiard/ping pong room, media room, wine tasting room, recreation room, sunken exercise room and powder room. Bespoke living at its best.
