Reimagined Living in Picture-Book Harding

A private road and five acres of picture-book splendor provide the stage for this custom-built country residence. Drawn by the property’s pastoral beauty, utter tranquility and prime location, the present owners secured its purchase in 2007. Reimagining the home, Tallaksen Construction, was soon enlisted to expand and vitalize its traditional design. Eight months later, with wings extended and multiple renovations, the now light-filled residence gave overture to an extraordinary quality of living. 

At the right of the main level, the redesigned master suite opens to a screened porch, its six sides crowned with a tall turret ceiling. A luxurious marble and cherry bath adjoins the master bedroom. Following the fitted walk-in closets and dressing area is the gym brightened with skylights and walls of windows. The rebuild for this wing continued to the second level.  Another bedroom and bath were added to the upper level’s two existing bedrooms, bath, immense game room, sitting areas, copious storage closets and sizeable walk-in attic conducive to future finished space.

Original to the residence is the living room with stone fireplace, dining room sporting one of the home’s several picture windows and cherry paneled library. Towards the left of the home, the refurbished kitchen features white cabinetry playing counterpoint to a significant cherry island topped with black leathered granite, The appliances are first-rate and the area continues the home’s prevailing oak flooring. Step down from here to the open family room where windows continue to the vaulted ceiling and French doors slide open to the bluestone terrace. Also warranting applause is the expanded, bright service area featuring a powder room, walk-in closet, outerwear station and large well-planned laundry room. Here too is access to the relocated garage expanded to three- bays. 

Known for its prestigious address and natural beauty, the tranquil surroundings of Harding could have one quickly forget that Manhattan is but 27 miles away. A town characterized by social gatherings at the post office, farm stands and country auctions may sound like a description from New Jersey's rural past, but this charming scene can be found right in Harding. Occupying 20 square miles, 40 percent of the township is protected open space reflecting the community's determination to preserve its rural ambiance. In addition, excellent public schools and proximity to prominent private schools add to the town’s allure.

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.
