This home has an open floor plan in an L shaped configuration to allow a playroom off the kitchen (for easy monitoring of the kids while prepping for dinner) as well as completely open to a breakfast area and family room for great entertaining opportunities.
The dining room, living room and study are smaller and more intimate spaces. The first floor also features a full bath, powder room, large mudroom, three car garage and a two story foyer. The second floor has four bedrooms each having direct access to a bathroom along with an oversized master bedroom suite that is about 1,500 square feet (you can imagine the size of the closets!).
This house continues to provide living space in the basement with a home theater and bar along with an exercise area, craft room, office and recreational space.
The exterior features a blend of materials including stone, hardiboard siding, copper roofed bay windows and a covered front porch.

AGA is an Architectural Firm serving Morris, New Jersey specializing in new residential designs, planning, additions, renovations, new construction design, construction documents and blueprints. Aric Gitomer Architect LLC is a boutique practice run by a sole practitioner, Aric Gitomer, AIA in Parsippany, New Jersey. Aric has been practicing architecture since 1984 where he started out in Boston, MA. He went to Boston upon completing his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. He concentrated on design in college and spent many hours in the design studio along with his fellow architecture students.
Those hours were filled with design vignettes, creating abstract structures, creating massive plaster sculptures, spending countless hours in a darkroom when everyone used film in their camera, working in the pottery studio and screen printing. It was there that Aric found a desire to explore spatial solutions to each individual problem.
He honed his skills in Boston and Cambridge Massachusetts, working for large architectural practices whose emphasis was on design as well as meeting the needs of the end user. After several years, he returned to his home state of New Jersey to be closer to family and continue his desire to practice architecture.
Today Aric resides in Morris County serving the tri-county area (Morris, Sussex and Essex) with his residential expertise. A small sample of projects are featured here to show the scope of design services Aric Gitomer Architect has provided to clients throughout the area. Aric is more than happy to discuss your next residential project no matter what size it is, whether your basement needs finishing, you decide it is time to put on that addition so mom can come live with you or if a new house is calling out to you. Each client comes to AGA with a different need making each project special and unique and allows Aric to continue his creative desire to come up with a solution that will give the end user years of enjoyment.
