OPEN HOUSE

New to Market: 107 Montclair Ave, Montclair, NJ

OPEN HOUSE

Saturday 6/23 and Sunday 6/24

2-4 p.m.

107 Montclair Ave

Offered at $989,000

 

As a Walkability Devotee, 107 Montclair Avenue is an absolute dream. It's spacious enough to grow with a family and offers premiere walkability at every stage.

The house itself is gorgeous. A 1923 Colonial with 5 bedrooms and 4 full baths. Beautiful wood floors throughout. Wood-burning fireplace. Updated kitchen and baths. A second-floor laundry room (believe me, if you’ve never lived in a home with this feature, you will count your newfound blessings with every load). An elegant master suite. 

And there’s more. New central AC. New hot water heater. New appliances. New garage. 

One of the things I love about this home is the fully renovated basement with its elegant ceramic tile floor. This is an enormous, inviting space to kick back in – and it has its own outside entrance!

The other thing I love is the bluestone patio – how the gentle curve of the low brick wall defines the space. And how it benefits from the nearby shade trees. There’s also a built-in Viking grill, a feature that many use all year long. 

True, it’s not often difficult to find a Montclair home with amenities. The challenge is finding a home with everything you’re looking for and walkability too.

If you’re familiar with the area, you will love being in the center of town. You will love the carpool ease. You will love that kids can walk to the high school. Or to the nearby ice-skating rink. Or to one of the town pools. Or the playground. Or the sports fields. 

This home also offers an easy walk to the New York City train, the Saturday Farmer’s Market, and all the restaurants and shops at Walnut and Grove. Or to Ruthie’s for barbeque and blues.

Montclair Avenue has always been one of the most beautiful and sought-after blocks in Montclair. Stop by my open house June 23rd or 24th and see why.

New to Market: 222 Highview Drive, Clifton

OPEN HOUSE

Sunday, June 10

2-4 p.m.

222 Highview Drive, Clifton

Easy commute. Gorgeous interiors. Four bedrooms, 2 full baths.

Listed at $449,000, 222 Highview offers, and in that price point everyone seems to be looking for.

I was instantly taken with the kitchen in this home — newly renovated and just the right size. 

The first floor has a great flow for entertaining, the fireplace adding a warm, welcoming vibe. 

Baths are all luxurious and new. 

I especially love the basement — another complete living space with access to the attached garage.

The New York City bus stops on the corner. Also, Route 3 and the Parkway are a minute away, providing instant access to literally every direction. 

Stop by for a visit and I’ll tell you about the schools, local shopping, and my favorite plant nursery right up the road!

New to Market: 653 Grove Street, Montclair

Open House

this Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13

2 - 4 p.m.

653 Grove Street, Montclair

I’m always excited to get a Montclair listing in the $500,000 price range. They’re not plentiful. But I’m even more excited to list a house like 653 Grove Street, because not only is the price right – everything feels right.

Set back and side-facing, this house feels private and secluded. I love the expansive, flat yard, and the entertainment patio off the great room. 

I love the open layout, the spacious kitchen, and that the master suite has its own floor. It’s sunny and bright, and feels easy to be in.

Northeast Elementary School is a short walk, but with Montclair’s renowned magnet school system, you can request one of the other five elementary schools – each with its own theme. 

Also close by: Applegate Farms Ice Cream, a Montclair institution that draws ice cream lovers from far and wide. The Alonzo Bonsal Wildlife Preserve – a 20-plus acre nature preserve that feels so “secret,” people blog about how to find the entrance. And Yantacaw Brook Park, another off-the-beaten-path treasure for long walks, scenic runs, and duck feeding. (Also, Northeast School has a great sledding hill in the back.)

Four bedrooms. Two full baths. Eat-in kitchen. Wood-burning stove and fireplace. Beautiful floors. Lots of built-ins. Detached garage. Quick walk to the New York City bus. And all that Montclair has to offer: exhibits and classes at Montclair Art Museum and Montclair State UniversityWhole Foods, CSAs and a Saturday Farmers Market. Montclair Film Festival, Montclair Jazz Festival, and the Presby Iris Gardens. Team sports for everyone – kids and grown-ups alike. Coffee shops. Tea shops. Yoga studios and independent book stores. 

Does this sound good to be true? Come visit the town I love to show off.

New to the Market: 25 Mountain Avenue, Caldwell

Open House this Sunday, April 29  2-4PM

25 Mountain Avenue, Caldwell, NJ

Convenient to shopping and nature, this house is not only situated between two cute downtowns (W. Caldwell and Verona) and two Olmsted-designed county parks, it’s steps away from the New York City bus. The perfect location for starting a family or for folks who are ready to let go of their too-big house. Homes like this – with its classic design, big, flat yard, garage with plenty of extra room, and real-estate taxes that won’t launch your mortgage payment into the stratosphere – have become what so many of my clients are looking for. Properties in this price range are always in high demand.

25 Mountain Avenue is bright and inviting from the moment you walk through the door. The centerpiece wood-burning stove offers both a warm glow and a cool vibe to the clean lines of this open Colonial.

Luscious wood floors lead you through the easy-flowing layout. Swing open the living room French doors to discover an expansive back deck overlooking a spacious back yard. Whether you’re sipping evening cocktails and listening to crickets humming or sipping morning coffee listening to the birds sing, there is nothing better than being able to take a little time outside to relax into or out of your day. 

Three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, den, full basement and easy attic. Oversized walk-in closet for extra storage. Walkable to shops, restaurants, and public transportation. Drive 10 minutes to downtown Montclair for dinner and a movie, or take the kids to nearby Cody Arena to the newly renovated Turtle Back Zoo. Family-friendly community, easy to get to and from, and plenty of walkability!

A New Year, A New Listing

13 White St in West Orange is my first listing to kick off 2018.  While it came on the market back in December I think most people were too busy preparing for the holidays to realize that this little gem slipped in.

This 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom renovated colonial is right where all the action is.  Across the street from Llewellyn Park, steps to the Main Street Hardware Store and the heart of downtown West Orange you can walk to restaurants, entertainment, the West Orange Public Library and Thomas Edison National Park.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                           

The house boasts a NEW open concept kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and marble tile floors.  NEW bathrooms; one with a Jacuzzi tub and updated plumbing & electric are just a few of the features this home has to offer.  Not to be overlooked is a deep back yard to house all of your friends and family for warm weather BBQ’s and entertaining.  Did I mention low taxes?

Come to the Open House this weekend on Saturday 1/6 from 12 – 2, or give me a call to set up a private showing; I’d love to show you around! 

New To The Market: 71 Beach Street, Bloomfield

Have you heard of the "Historic District," in Bloomfield?!  It's tucked away yet close to everything.  Classic colonials and Victorians, wide lots with mature trees and gardens abound on streets with names like Beach, Elm, Oak and Spruce.  This part of town feels more like Glen Ridge or Montclair than the rest of Bloomfield.

71 Beach St is my newest listing in this friendly neighborhood.  As soon as you pull up to the front of this charming property,  you feel like you're miles away from the downtown hustle and bustle, (but really you're just steps from shops, restaurants and NYC transportation).  Oversized bay windows and a well maintained garden in the front welcome you in to an easy flowing center hall colonial.  The living room boasts built-in bookcases, a colonial style mantle surrounding a wood burning fireplace.  Off of the living room is a French door leading to a private screened in porch with a paver stone patio and a lovely private yard with more lush greenery.

Walk out of this home and you're a few steps away from the Bloomfield Public Library, High School and College.  Bloomfield and Glen Ridge train stations are also a quick stroll away and with a 29 minute train ride, you'll be in midtown Manhattan before you even have a chance to doze off. 

Charm and convenience in one turn of a key.  This one is going to go fast! 

Come to the Open House Sunday, October 29th, or we can set up a private viewing by appointment.  Call me - I'd love to take you around!

NEW To The Market: 127 Stratford Drive, Nutley

I'm proud to present to the market this perennially popular "Buckingham" style townhouse in the desirable Cambridge Heights community in Nutley.  127 Stratford Drive has it all.


Walk right up to the front door (no steps) and into the main level of this stylishly updated move in ready home.  The first floor has a welcoming living area and open Dining Room / Kitchen space with sliders going out to a cozy outdoor patio with gas line for bbq grill.  Upstairs you'll find a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, en suite bathroom and spacious walk in closet.  In addition, two more bedrooms (or one that can be used for a den/office) one more full bathroom and laundry room complete the layout.

Community amenities include clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, playground, jogging path and fitness center.  Steps to Clifton Commons shopping center and NYC transportation.

Come to one of the Open Houses Saturday October 7th & Sunday October 8th or we can set up a private showing by appointment.

NEW To The Market: 4 Old Salem Road, West Orange

Everything about 4 Old Salem Road is so inviting. From the pristine wood floors and elegant palette to the renovated kitchen with all new appliances. What I love about this home is how it feels built to welcome guests. Cozy fireplace. Light streaming through French doors. Wet bar in the finished basement – the type of family room that can truly grow with a family. This house has great “flow” -- everything feeling easy and just as it should be – and when you “flow” out to the backyard, it feels as if you’ve entered a whole new living space. This is truly one of the loveliest back patios I’ve ever seen, expansive and intimate all at once.

The neighborhood – St. Cloud – has its own perks: the 45-minute bus to Manhattan stops two blocks away, and the free West Orange jitney brings you to the train station from the corner.

Best of all, this home sits on one of the most desirable blocks in the neighborhood, a short drive to New Jersey’s most elegant shopping mall and a short walk to one of the most impressive features of Essex County – the newly reconstructed South Mountain Recreation Complex, which includes skating at South Mountain Arena, mini golf, the Turtleback Zoo, a gorgeous waterfront promenade, boating, restaurants, and then miles of hiking in South Mountain Reservation.


Oh, did I mention the screened-in garden porch, central AC and attached garage? This house has it all going on.

Come to the Open House Sunday, September 3rd, or we can set up a private viewing by appointment. Call me! I’d love to take you around!

New Listing: 4 Hickory Road, Nutley NJ

4 Hickory Rd Nutley - kitchenThere’s so much I love about this gorgeous split level in Nutley! The layout is open and airy. It was kept immaculately, so you feel calm as soon as you step inside. The floors are beautiful and the renovated kitchen is both elegant and inviting. I’m a big fan of outdoor entertaining and the deck/patio combo here is perfect for weekend barbecues or kicking back on a summer evening. There’s even a view of the Manhattan skyline from the oversized deck.

Hickory Road is a great, quiet location -- a tucked away side street with very little traffic, that also offers quick access to the Garden State Parkway as well as local shopping.4 Hickory Rd Nutley - living room

Central air, attached garage, cathedral ceiling, renovated bath and a family room that’s like a little oasis. At $399,000, this home is likely to go fast.

Whether you’re moving from an apartment or downsizing from a larger space, this house will call to you. Some homes just have a great vibe, and this is one of them.

Come see for yourself at my OPEN HOUSE this Sunday, May 21 from 2-4pm.
