A stone Victorian home on 2.4 acres in Old Short Hills has returned to the market seeking $7.95 million, according to JerseyDigs. The 5,255-square-foot home located at 85 Stewart Road has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. Built in 1887, the home was also recently renovated to include a cabana, detached four-car garage, a courtyard, a tennis court, a swimming pool and a regulation-size squash court on its lower level. The property itself hit the market last summer asking almost $8 million, but its listing was removed in December, according to Zillow, which shows that the home first came on the market in April 2011 at nearly $9.4 million. Property records show that portfolio manager Evan Lamp owns the parcel. Proximal to the century-old home are the private Short Hills Club, the East Orange Golf Course, the community’s local New Jersey Transit station and the high-end Mall at Short Hills, where co-working space Industrious recently signed a lease for 30,000 square feet of space. [Jersey Digs]
