This Home is Not For Everyone
If you like having neighbors looking in your windows; this is not for you.
If you like your neighbors dropping in to borrow a tool or a cup of sugar; this house is not for you.
If you like neighbors period; this house is not for you.
However... if you like quiet, if you like privacy, if you like Heaven... this house is definitely for you.
Picture this: You come home from a hard day of dealing with a demanding boss, unrealistic customers, ridiculous commuter traffic. You pull into your dirveway and traverse through the trees to your own secluded, private world. You have a shower and a light dinner and then step out onto your deck under the stars, and settle into a chair. While sipping a cool beverage, the song of the crickets and russle of the leaves ease away the stress of the day. All this can be yours... and you're only minutes from civilization.
Location, Location, Location!
This sprawling ranch is nestled on nearly 2 acres of heavily wooded property, yet you are only a 20 minute drive from NYC, and public transportation is right around the corner. The home is 1 mile from Rt.280 and minutes from the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike and Rt.80. Even Newark Liberty International Airport is only 15 minutes away. Talk about centrally located!
This House is Perfect For Living and Entertaining
The house features a huge sunken living room with a wood burning granite fireplace. Directly adjacent to that, you step down into a 20 X 31 cathedral-ceilinged great room. Across the back of the great room, on yet another level is an ornate, formal dining room. The upstairs is wall-to-walll hardwood floors.
The bright, sunny kitchen offers tons of cabinet space as well as counter top. Overlooking the beautiful grounds is a breakfast knook, where you can view the scenery and the abundant wildlife. Next to the kitchen is a spacious dinette area that can accomodate even the biggest family.
The main bathroom is done with retro pink and sea foam green tile on the floor and counters, as well as the fixtures. There is an obundance of counter space and a huge counter-to-ceiling mirror. An over-sized square tub with shower completes the Deco vibe.
The master bedroom suite is large enough to accept any bedroom set you choose, and have room for more. The recently updated bathroom features ceramic tile on the floor, halfway up the walls and totally encapsulates the over-sized shower. The 3rd bedroom is also connected to the Master Bedroom Suite Bathroom, so it is perfect for use as a nursery.
The back bedroom is roomy and features plenty of closet space. And speaking of closet space; the third bedroom features a walk-in closet with shelves and rods.
Moving into the basement... half is finished for a rec-room or works perfectly as a home office, it even features another working, wood-burning fireplace.. The other half is made for storage, even including a big walk-in cedar closet. The storage are opens directly into the heated 2-car garage, so it's perfect and convenient for unloading your groceries.
The garage features a workshop area, complete with 8ft bench and cabinets.
The home has a complete french drain system around the perimeter, with 2 sump pumps. It also has a full security system with contacts on each window and door, as well as motion detectors and smoke detectors wired in.
Being that the property is so wooded we have always maintained a pest control contract, as well as yearly termite prevention and inspection. Clean bill of health of both counts.
This is a Special House for Those With Special Tastes
Due to the privacy and seclusion, yet close proximity to transportation and shopping, this situation is perfect for someone in the artistic community who may not leave the house for days at a time. But, on the other hand, it would be perfect for a commuter who needs to let it all go, at the end of the day and week.
* For contractors or investors; the property is sub-dividable.
