Regular readers of my blog know that I tend to write about general trends and issues of interest to home-buyers and sellers; Occasionally I write a post about a specific piece of real estate. Today I have a listing for a home that strikes me as quintessential Montclair real estate, and I want to let everyone know about it.
While Montclair has a wonderfully wide variety of neighborhoods and architectural styles, many Montclair homes do have two features in common: They tend to have been built in the first half of the 20th century, and they are often located within walking distance of shops and schools. 41 Watchung Ave. has both of these characteristics. It is a very pretty side-hall Craftsman Colonial built in 1925, which means that it has natural wood trim and hardwood floors. It also has a formal dining room, a large eat-in kitchen, and a beautiful wood-burning fireplace in the living room.
The other terrific thing about 41 Watchung is its location between Valley and Edgemont Rds. The buyer of this home will enjoy being able to walk to bus and train stations, shops, restaurants, schools, and Edgemont Park. I genuinely love this particular neighborhood; it's been my home for 15 years. Give me a call or send an email; I'd love to show it to you.
