PERFECTLY LOCATED and PERFECTLY DESIGNED. This 1905 Victorian has been meticulously and thoughtfully updated inside and out. This completely renovated 6BR home has a new, light-flooded open floor plan, state-of-the-art kitchen & baths, new systems, new windows and a stunning new mahogany deck. An 8 minute walk to train, 5 minute walk to town and farmer’s market, 2 minutes to I-78. This is a rare, must-see house in a welcoming vibrant neighborhood.
With incredible curb appeal, this historic yet contemporary home was designed for aesthetics and usability. A private wraparound, front porch is perfect for intimate evening cocktails and conversation. Inside, a surprisingly light and open floor plan is both refreshingly sophisticated and accessible to all members of the family. New, polished hardwood floors and large windows usher in sunlight, while artfully chosen recessed lighting create an airy and inviting space. Wood-burning fireplaces bring warmth to both the dining room and family room, while furniture quality built-ins offer concealed storage space. A renovated kitchen is seamlessly integrated into the open floor plan of the entire first floor. This creates a beautiful and functional living space.
Custom cabinets, granite counters and professional grade appliances connect to the counter/breakfast area. French doors open off the kitchen, expanding the first floor to a totally refurbished, sleek deck which overlooks the backyard. The deck has plenty of room for outdoor dining and entertaining, while the backyard welcomes active play and gardening.
Returning inside, five generous bedrooms and two full baths occupy the second and third levels. The master bedroom enjoys the advantage of a full en suite bath and two expansive, custom closets. The hall bath aptly serves the remaining bedrooms. The third floor includes a cozy fourth bedroom as well as a separate and expansive room offering office space, an exercise area and an additional and comfortable bedroom. The sixth bedroom and full bath is found on the lower level, along with a large recreation room, laundry room, wine area and plentiful storage.
