4 Boiling Springs Rd HoHoKus

Absolutely unique setting! On 1.3 acres, set back from the road, and located in the most desirable area of Hohokus: the prestigious Brewster Estates. One of only 11 properties bordering Lower Pond (an 8 acre visual jewel) this has to be the prettiest of the lot, offering perfect elevation, superlatively landscaped grounds and a supremely natural setting. The view - from the living room, the kitchen, the family room and nearly all the bedrooms - is absolutely stunning!
Architecturally crafted to take full advantage of its magnificent setting, the home is shaped in a horseshoe fashion with banks of rear windows oriented towards the morning sun, the shimmering lake and the secluded swimming pool. Both wings of the structure border a large veranda, just outside the kitchen and only steps away from the 55’ Puglise gunite pool. The perfect entertainment environment for larges parties or small, day or night!
Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, the design of this home has been aptly described as a California-style contemporary colonial. The entrance foyer is a long atrium with curvaceous interior walls and exposed stairs leading, on the one hand, up to a gallery style second floor and, on the other, down to the full finished, basement (large open expanse with utility room, bath, separate store rooms and a wine cellar). On the main level is located the living room (large & sunken with 12’+ ceilings, a gas operated fireplace and double doors leading to the patio/veranda), the dining room (formal yet comfortable), modern dine-in kitchen (Ulrich constructed with top-of-the-line appliances and a huge walk-in pantry), a family room (2nd fireplace), office, maid’s area, 2 bathrooms, utility room and entrance to the 5 car attached garages. Upstairs - off catwalk hallways that interact with the main level - there are 4 large bedrooms (each with its own full bath and walk-in closet; the Master bedroom features, additionally, a private sitting room, a dressing area with his & her closets and a master bath, with both shower and Jacuzzi tub. Doors off the MBR offer another special amenity: a private balcony with dreamy views on the lake & landscaped grounds.
