Home of the Week: 11 Colgate Terrace, Harding Township

The elegant home located at 11 Colgate Terrace in Harding Township, NJ brings a bit of the Old World to New Jersey. Set on beautifully landscaped acreage, you’ll feel like you stepped into a European chateau. Ornate architectural details abound throughout. A long tree-lined brick paved drive leads up to the exquisitely landscaped front door draped with beautiful flowers and manicured shrubbery. The two-story foyer includes a sweeping staircase with ornamental iron handrail.

11 Colgate Terrace in Harding Township brings European inspiration to New Jersey. Amenities include a gourmet kitchen with butler's pantry, clawfoot soaking tub in the master bath, beautifully landscaped acreage, an inground pool with attached lap pool and a tennis court.Formally entertain guests in the lovely living room which contains the first of four fireplaces throughout this home. Easily host a large dinner party in the huge dining room. The crown molding, beautiful wood flooring, and gorgeous chandelier add a touch of glass to any gathering. For more informal get-togethers, the grand family room includes a two-story brick fireplace and opens up to the second-floor living space.

The gourmet kitchen continues its European charm. Brick and tiled backsplashes, huge gas stove with double oven, massive island with extra storage, and breakfast nook are a chef’s dream. A butler’s pantry provides just the added storage you need for your very best china, crystal stemware, and special accoutrement required to impress even the most finicky of guests.

A third fireplace can be found in the library. Rich wood-paneled walls add warmth. Complementary wood beams traverse the ceiling. But the large windows allow natural light to flow through which helps avoid it feeling too “stuffy” inside.

The spacious master bedroom includes the fourth and final fireplace in this magnificent abode. Enjoy looking out on your gorgeous grounds from the window seat. Decorative crown molding provides a refined finish to the room. Another European-inspired touch can be found in the master bath, where a claw foot soaking tub can be found.

Bring the party outdoors onto your generous patio. Enjoy morning coffee or afternoon tea in the Italian-inspired courtyard. Host summer pool parties in your outdoor pool or keep a lean swimmer’s body by exercising in your own lap pool. Lush shrubs cover the top of the pergola, helping to keep the cozy cabana underneath cool in the summertime. The serene pond is the perfect place to reflect and center yourself. Perfect your backhand on the tennis court. And a four-car garage provides plenty of space for your vintage car collection.
