47 Ardsley Road is a walkable home at its best.

A standout in this quintessential center hall colonial is the sunny oversized kitchen with loads of counter space, separate breakfast area and easy access to the mudroom, back door and large flat backyard.

75 Essex Ave, Montclair

Offered at: $899,000

If you or someone you know is in the market for a completely renovated quintessential Montclair “old home made new," look no further than my new listing: 75 Essex Ave in Montclair.  

This inviting center hall colonial is ideally located in the Watchung Plaza neighborhood and is steps away from transportation, restaurants, schools, playgrounds and many of the walkable amenities that Montclair has to offer.

On the first floor you’ll be impressed by a large kitchen with breakfast nook that overlooks a sunny family room.  Formal, wainscoted dining room, living room with built-ins and wood burning fire place plus a bright office with french doors complete the main level. From the lush outdoor landscaping with underground irrigation system to the finished 3rd floor carpeted loft/secret hideout, no detail has been overlooked.  There are enough bedrooms, bathrooms and shared spaces for a quiet retreat or to enjoy time with family and friends -- five bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths, to be exact.

                

One of my favorite rooms in this house is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, exposed brick wall, lighted tray ceiling and spa like bathroom.  Overlooking the back yard, this private oasis is a great place to relax and recharge.

        

Come take a look and see for yourself. You won't want to leave, but when you do, stroll over to Watchung Plaza for a coffee at Bluestone Coffee, browse the shelves at Watchung Booksellers or pick up a sweet treat at The Pie Shop.

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.

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

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.

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!
