Country life in the suburbs of NYC

Privacy and Seclusion are only minutes from shopping and NYC!

You can have both the tranquility of the country, along with the convenience of shopping and travel – whether commuting or longer trips. This magical property is a mere 20 minutes and only 12 miles from NYC by car, or you have the South Mountain Arena Park & Ride literally within walking distance. One last option is the South Orange Train Station located 5 minutes away.

When you drive down your driveway, you're traversing through the woods feel as if you're in fairy tale. Once you reach the street, you realize that you are actually in civilization. Rt. 280, the Garden State Parkway, the NJ Turnpike and Rt. 80 are all only minutes away. You are 5 minutes from grocery and other stores.

You can still work in NYC, but not have the high cost or other issues which currently exist. Be safe! Be happy!

This sprawling ranch sits on nearly 2 acres of lush, wooded beauty. The home features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The entire main floor boasts beautiful hardwood floors, in a multilevel floor plan.

You'll first walk across the slated front porch to enter through the double front doors. When you step into the entry foyer the first thing you'll notice is the tiled floor.

As you turn left you'll step down into the huge sunken living room which features a working brick fireplace, high ceiling and huge windows overlooking the magical property. From there you step down again into the great room with vaulted cathedral ceiling. Overlooking the family recreation area is a formal, elevated, over-sized dining room which features immaculate oak hardwood flooring.

The large kitchen offers loads of counter space, with walls of cabinets and a large pantry. There is a full breakfast bar with cabinets underneath. It sits directly in front of a wall of windows where you can breath in the beauty and tranquility while you enjoy your morning coffee. There is also a small room off the kitchen with an outside entrance, which can be used as storage, a plant or mud room.

On the other side of the kitchen you'll find a large laundry room with a entire wall of storage cabinets and a utility sink. That room too has an outside entrance onto a deck for grilling or just embracing nature.

Directly off the kitchen is a full dining area with windows looking out onto the front lawn greenery and abundant wildlife.

The 3 bedrooms run across the back of the house. The large Master Bedroom suite has a full Jack-N-Jill bathroom between it and the middle bedroom, which has a large walk-in closet. The third bedroom has ample closet space, as well as a large, built-in Armoire.

The main full bathroom is Art Deco green and pink, with an Art Deco toilet, sink and over-sized tub. A full mirror sits over the pink tiled counter and make-up area. This is a throwback to the classic days gone by!

One half of the full height basement is finished with a wall of slider storage closets and abundant built-in media shelving. It has another working brick fireplace. There is also a wet bar for entertaining. The other half is for storage and includes a 7'x5' cedar closet.

The over-sized, heated 2-car garage also includes a good-sized workshop with long built-in bench and cabinets. Coming into the house through the garage puts you directly in the storage side of the basement, so it makes bringing in your days shopping easy and convenient.

Special Note: Should you decide you'd like to expand the house, or even divide the property to put up an additional house, you're already halfway there. This property is currently zoned R-4, which means that you could actually sub-divide it into up to 5 separate lots.

This is truly a paradise just waiting for a new family to embrace it.

Taxes on this oasis are low at $15,603 for 2019. That's a steal for what this property offers.

Subdividable Property NJ
