Charming Colonial on Bloomfield Glen Ridge Border
If you love charm and character, want access to a thriving Downtown, and need a quick commute into the city, this home on the Bloomfield-Glen Ridge border is not to be missed! Pretty and sunny, it feels like home as soon as you walk in. You’ll find lovely period details throughout, including a wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookshelves, a cavernous linen closet, Butler’s pantry, picture rail moldings, large sash windows, oak hardwood floors with mahogany trim border, and a perfectly gorgeous front porch that’s perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. In addition to wisteria and hydrangeas, there’s a hundred-year-old oak tree in the backyard that provides beauty and shade in the summer. There’s also a beautiful dogwood in the front yard that is breathtaking in the spring. There are 3 very nice-sized bedrooms and 2 full baths. The large basement has its own laundry room, lots of light, French drains, and is ready to be finished. The upstairs bath boasts an original claw-foot tub. There’s also a garage that’s been converted into a work studio. The lovely backyard with its cozy patio is perfect for hosting barbecues. The brand-new wood fence all around will accommodate all your outdoor pursuits as well as expansion possibilities.
This home has it all. As well as having much lower taxes than you would find in Montclair, it’s close to many shops and restaurants and only a 12-minute walk to the Midtown Direct train. It’s also just a few blocks away from Jack’s Foodtown, which is like a great mix of Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s all in one.
