The most exquisite renovation and incomparable NYC skyline view, just steps from the #33 Decamp commuter bus into the city and a short walk into downtown Montclair. The Property Set back on 1.2 acres of Watchung Mountain hillside, this pretty Dutch Colonial faces due east towards Manhattan, and the dramatic view captures the skyline in all its glory. The wooded landscape in the back makes you feel like you are in a rural retreat but turn 180 degrees and the splendor of New York City is laid out before your eyes. This is a perfect property for the cloud gazer and storm watcher. You will have your own fall foliage and fireworks displays, your own winter wonderland, your own sunrises and big blue skies. You won’t however see deer from Eagle Rock Reservation eating away the new plantings though, because there is a newly installed deer fence at the back of the property that is doing its job well. Much landscaping has been done over the last few seasons – trees have been cleared, terraces planted, new borders and privacy screens created, sod laid down on the side yard for the hammock/playarea. The spectacular bluestone patio and wraparound porch make this an incredible entertaining property. Your guests will love the outdoor spaces, and of course the view. The platform deck on the hillside needs some TLC but affords a glorious rustic, private vantage point to further enjoy the views and surroundings. The location of the deck is a possible site for a future swimming pool. The House You will be wowed by every room in this gorgeous home. Completely updated for modern living with a huge eat-in kitchen, & a room flow with just the right mix of open plan and separation. French doors & new windows flood the home with sunlight & provide access to a spectacular bluestone patio & landscape. All rooms are spacious, including the exceptional master suite which has a new bathroom, walk-in closet, sitting room & breathtaking view. The Location – part hillside retreat, part urban-suburban chic! For those who know Montclair, they are familiar with how magical and beautiful the Estate section is. Whereas some streets in the Estate section can be quite far away from town, from 46 Lloyd you can easily walk into downtown Montclair. Whole Foods, the Montclair Art Museum, Uncle Momo’s are a 10 minute walk away. Anthropologie and the eastern end of Downtown is less than a mile away along Bloomfield Avenue. The Commute Just a 5 minute walk, from the house to the corner is the bus stop for Decamp’s #33 Decamp commuter bus into Port Authority. The owners sometimes walk to NJ Transit’s Midtown Direct train at Walnut Street train station in 25 minutes.
