This classic Center Hall Colonial home rests on .35 acres of gorgeous property in the desirable St. Cloud section of West Orange.
The front porch extends a warm welcome as you walk into the front foyer. The formal living and dining rooms, both spacious and bright, sit across the center hall from each other. There are beautifully finished, light oak hardwood floors throughout the home.
The updated kitchen, with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, has a breakfast bar & eat-in area with sliders, perfect for a weekend brunch among friends. As you step though the sliding doors onto the large wooden deck, with an electric retractable awning, you overlook an expansive backyard bordered by light woods. Lots of space for outside play and gardening!
The crown jewels of this home are the two adjoining family rooms, one with a wood-burning fireplace and the other with a vaulted ceiling. Skylights pour sunlight into the room and the wrap-around picture windows overlook a spacious yard and woods beyond.
The large light-filled master bedroom is complete with walk-in closet, en-suite master bath and laundry facilities. Across the large upstairs landing there are three additional bedrooms which share a full bath located in the hallway.
The finished lower level offers a recreation room, a fitness area, a laundry room, a full bathroom and loads of storage!
Surrounded by tall trees and lush greenery, this private setting has shopping, recreation, schools and access to NYC trains only minutes away, with easy access to the Essex Green Shopping Plaza just a mile away.
The bus stop for the express bus to New York is just .4 miles away and the stop for the free jitney to the NYC train station is even closer! There are 3 train stations to NYC within a 3 mile radius! Ridgeway Park, a large open green area where the neighborhood block party is held every August, is a few hundred yards down the road.
The St. Cloud neighborhood of West Orange was established by real estate entrepreneur Benjamin Small in the 1860’s. Small’s wife named the area for a Parisian suburb of the same name. Beyond the high ridge traced by Prospect Avenue, St. Cloud is nestled between two golf courses and the South Mountain Reservation. It is a patchwork of different styles of housing ranging from Colonials to Ranches and Tudors to Victorians.
