One family in Summit, New Jersey commemorated the completion of a longwinded home renovation on a very remarkable day -- the property's 100th anniversary. And this Georgian Colonial mansion, originally designed by well-known architect John N. Cady, is definitely a place worth celebrating. Our friends at ASPIRE Metro shared photos of the stunning house and grounds.

Architect Maureen Rainier Stone was tasked with restoring the 22-room residence with six bedrooms, five bathrooms and three fireplaces to its original glory. In addition to a major overhaul of the house's plumbing, electrical and other mechanical structures, she was attentive to historical details like the home's beautiful stained glass and leaded glass windows and doors (which took a whole year on its own.)
For the final touches, the owners hired the great designer Charlotte Moss who created amazing spaces like a lovely country kitchen and an incredible billiards room and wine cellar. Moss told ASPIRE, "exuberant, colorful, gracious, and full of life is how I would describe ‘the house on the hill.'" And we couldn't have said it better ourselves.
