MAGNIFICENT TUDOR REVIVAL HOME

78 Crest Dr -

Welcome to “Quarry Hall,” a spectacular restored Tudor Revival residence located in South Orange’s premier Newstead neighborhood. One of the first homes built in the venerable Newstead neighborhood by developer George H. Becker in the 1930’s, this magnificent Tudor is located at the very end of Crest Drive and sits on a most scenic 1.2 acre lot boasting professionally landscaped grounds and sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. The expansive lawn and ideally situated shade trees provide a bucolic atmosphere to relax, entertain and unwind. The striking exterior features a brick and stone façade, Vermont slate roof and three distinctive chimneys. This impressive residence has been renovated by its present owners with great care and attention to quality and detail. Once you tour this home, it will be evident that both old and new have been seamlessly incorporated into one magnificent dwelling. The grand Entry Foyer opens to a gracious Living Room and expansive formal Dining Room, both accented with vintage leaded glass windows and dentil molding. A wood burning fireplace with sculpted plaster mantle adds an inviting focal point to the Living Room. The avid cook and entertainer will be delighted with the thoughtfully designed renovated chef’s kitchen replete with upscale appliances, abundant cabinetry and storage, and Manhattan views from the panoramic window in the Eating Area. Custom oak paneling and built-ins grace the inviting Family Room. The 2nd floor features two Master Suites: one with a full bath with jetted tub and a sitting area that overlooks the New York skyline, and another with a large dressing area with three closets and en suite Bath. Two more Bedrooms and two Baths, a generous-sized Den and a Laundry Room complete this level. Two additional Bedrooms, a full Bath, and a walk-in Attic with abundant storage can be found on the 3rd floor. The Lower level includes a classic Pool/Recreation Room, Powder Room, utility area, storage and outside access. South Orange Village, with a population of over 16,000, is conveniently located less than 20 miles from New York City and is a short train ride to Manhattan on the Midtown Direct line. It boasts a vibrant downtown and is home to The South Orange Performing Arts Center and Seton Hall University.
