Just 16 miles outside of Manhattan, on one of historic Westfield, NJ’s most established and desirable streets, stands this magnificent 1915 Dutch colonial. Set back from the road, the stately 5-bedroom, 4 &1/2 bath home enjoys a sprawling front property graced with mature trees and meticulously manicured landscaping. 547 Highland Ave’s grand facade conveys a bygone elegance; inside awaits a perfect blend of period detail and contemporary comfort.
With a covered porch at the entrance, guests are welcomed into the spectacular open foyer. Grass cloth walls are met with carved moldings, two carved columns, hardwood floors and 9-ft ceilings. Straight ahead is an exposed staircase, augmented by intricate windows that sit above them.
To the left of the entrance is the bright and inviting living room. Large windows on one side are completed with an oversized window seat. A marble and carved wood mantle surrounds the gas fireplace and centers the room, with a set of French doors leading to a first floor office.
On the right side of the foyer is the formal dining room. Built-in shelving, another fireplace, and two sets of French doors highlight the space. The French doors lead to a cozy family room; great for smaller gatherings or for quiet retreat.
Behind the front rooms is the stunning eat-in kitchen, built for entertaining. With custom cherry cabinets, (the upper cabinets are glass with recessed lighting), granite countertops, Viking, Sub-Zero, and KitchenAid appliances, the impressive room boasts two large islands and an expansive eating area. French doors lead to a covered bluestone patio and an open bluestone patio, both overlooking the back gardens.
A mudroom with built-in cubbies and a large closet, plus a half-bath completes the first floor.
Upstairs is equally expansive. The gracefully appointed owners suite enjoys grass cloth walls, large windows with shutters for privacy, two closets, plus an additional walk-in closet. A stall shower, Jacuzzi tub, and custom double vanity are accented by limestone flooring.
Three additional bedrooms on this floor each include unique features: one has a small entrance vanity and French doors that lead to a balcony. Another is en suite with a walk-in closet, and the fourth large bedroom hosts a sitting room and walk-in closet.
A full bath with a custom double vanity and adorned with marble, and a second office finish this floor. The third floor features the 5 th bedroom, a wrapping room, and an abundance of storage space with potential for a playroom.
Laundry, a home gym, a wine cellar, a leisure room, and a 12’X12’ locked vault create a great escape on the ground floor.
The beautiful details found in turn of the century design and construction, are found throughout this impeccable home. Fine craftsmanship is in every corner and is complemented by the renovations and up-scale amenities provided by its current stewards.
With a bustling downtown, direct train service to NYC and top schools, Westfield is one of NJ’s most sought-after communities. This home, on this street, in this town, is an exceptional find.
