(SHORT HILLS, N.J.) --- The Maggee Miggins Group at Keller Williams Realty in Short Hills, New Jersey announces the sale of historic Ardwyn, one of the original Hartshorn Estate homes offered at $1,995,000.
Ardwyn, a Victorian home at 45 Crescent Place was built in 1891 by Stewart Hartshorn in Short Hills, New Jersey. Short Hills began as a planned community when Stewart Hartshorn (who became wealthy from developing, perfecting and manufacturing the self-acting shade roller) purchased 13 acres of land in Millburn Township. Hartshorn erected 17 homes with a purpose to create "a harmonious community for people who appreciated nature," and "where natural beauty would not be destroyed by real estate developments, and where people of congenial tastes could dwell together."
Ardwyn reflects his vision with 11 rooms (originally 18) including 7 bedrooms, living room, family room, formal dining room and 3.1 baths. Ardwyn’s period details have been meticulously maintained including extensive millwork, original molding and a gracious walnut staircase. Exquisite period details also include 10 ft. high coffered ceilings, deep window wells and original craftsmanship throughout the home.
In 2010 the home was updated with a designer chef’s kitchen including custom cabinetry, marble center island and pro grade appliances, a custom designed butler’s pantry as well as a luxury bath. Other notable updates include the large Master Bedroom Suite with his and her closets, a marble spa bath and a bonus room just off the Master Suite. A newly constructed heated and oversized two-car garage were built just off the mudroom as well as a side porch to sit and enjoy Ardwyn’s view.
It is of interest to note that Hartshorn situated his "ideal town" near enough to a railroad to allow for an easy commute to Hoboken and, from there, to New York City. Hence, his decision in 1879 to build, at his own expense, a railroad station along the original Morris and Essex Railroad line which offers an easy commute to New York City to this day.
