Built in 2011, 16 Ellers Drive in Chatham, NJ offers 21st-century upgrades with traditional charm. This home has four large bedrooms, two-and-a-half gleaming bathrooms, and enough modern amenities and storage space for a growing family. Situated on a quiet street, the green front grass is professionally landscaped. Feel right at home walking up on the home’s brick front walkway onto the bluestone front steps.

Right when you open the front door, you’ll notice the home’s hardwood staircase, a visual masterpiece that gives the house an open and inviting ambiance. From the entry Foyer, take your gaze up to the two-story ceiling and modern chandelier. The second-floor hallway looks out over the Foyer as well. Immaculate hardwood floors cover the First Level, along with crown molding, baseboard molding, and fresh paint. Large windows flood the downstairs with natural sunlight while recessed lighting throughout the home keeps the house bright at night. Directly to the left of the Foyer is your First Floor Sitting Room with Hunter Douglas custom blinds. Make the Sitting Room a formal living room, reading room, home office, or kids’ playroom. To the right of the center staircase is your Formal Dining Room, which also includes large windows with Hunter Douglas blinds.

From the Dining Room, revel in the Kitchen’s stainless steel appliances, including a built-in GE microwave, five-burner GE range, and GE dishwasher. A double-doored GE refrigerator with freezer drawer offers enough food storage space to feed even the hungriest growing children. Not only does the Kitchen house dozens of custom maple cabinets and drawers with polished silver accents to organize the essentials, a giant walk-in pantry next to the refrigerator ensures you have room to feed an army. You’ll have plenty of counter space due to the Kitchen’s L-shaped countertop and oversized island. Right off the Kitchen, step into the Mudroom, with built-in custom storage to keep the entire family’s coats and shoes organized. Notice the Mudroom’s lovely tiled floor and additional coat closet. A Powder Room is located right off the Mudroom with an upgraded mirror, newer fixtures, and updated lighting.

An attached Garage off the Mudroom provides ample space for one car plus storage. You’ll never have to battle the elements to bring your groceries inside, as the entrance to the attached garage is located just a step away from the Kitchen. The home offers a partially finished basement with plenty of windows, storage space, and extra-high ceilings.

Place your kitchen table in between the Kitchen and the Family Room, right outside a sliding glass door to the outdoor patio. You can fit a huge sofa or sectional and your flat-screen television in the Family Room. The Family Room has several windows and a lovely gas fireplace with remote control and wood mantel. From the Family Room, walk outside onto the large bluestone patio in the home’s idyllic Backyard. Motion-sensor lights surround the Backyard, providing ample nighttime lighting. Let the kids run around the professionally landscaped lawn and play on the yard’s swing set, which sits atop comfortable wood chips. A lovely bluestone walkway leads to the front yard and driveway.

All four Bedrooms are located on the Second Level. Walk up the beautiful staircase and immediately you’ll see the home’s Second Floor Laundry Room and updated Hall Bathroom. The Laundry Room has a built-in sink with granite countertop and storage space. The Hallway Bathroom features double sinks on a long granite-topped vanity with cabinets underneath. Notice the flawless subway tile with mosaic detailing across the Bathroom’s walls and warm gray tile flooring. A bathroom-shower combination completes the Hallway Bathroom. From the Hallway, you have access to the Attic with pull-down stairs. The Attic offers a huge amount of storage space, and enough room to walk around comfortably. With florescent lighting and windows, you have enough light to find all of your most treasured possessions.

The Master Bedroom is large enough to fit a king-sized bed. With one Walk-In Closet and one extra-deep Closet, you’ll never fight about who gets more closet space. An en-suite Master Bathroom features an extra-deep soaking tub and a separate stand-up shower and glass shower doors. The Master Bath also has a double-sink vanity with storage space underneath and its own linen closet. Beautiful wall tiling, tile floors, and a custom window treatment complete the Bathroom’s polished look. Bedroom #2 has a large closet with new storage shelving built in 2013, fresh paint, and plenty of sunlight. Bedroom #3 also has an upgraded, large closet and also features a convenient ceiling fan. Bedroom #4 additionally includes ample space for a kids’ room or guestroom. All Bedrooms on the second floor have hardwood floors, fresh paint, large windows, and baseboard molding.

Chatham, NJ offers prestige, small-town charm, and top-rated schools. U.S. News rated Chatham High School ninth overall in the state. The New York Times recently did a feature on Chatham in its April 22nd, 2015 edition of its Real Estate section, highlighting the town’s superior school district, old-fashioned Main Street with mom-and-pop shops, and convenient access to New York City via train and major highways.

School Information

The School District of the Chathams is one of the best aspects of the Chatham area, known for its high standards, family involvement, and community engagement.  Educational excellence is highly valued in the Chatham community, and the district receives support from The Chatham Education Foundation of New Jersey, a very active group of parents and community members who work to provide their school system with additional resources and programs. The School District of The Chathams is served by four elementary schools (Milton Avenue, Southern Boulevard,Washington Avenue, and Lafayette School), Chatham Middle School and Chatham High School. Every one of these institutions boast a reputation for striving to meet the needs of every child through carefully tailored curriculums and an individualized approach that is tailored to meet the needs of each student. This degree of excellence has not gone unnoticed – Chatham High School was recently awarded with a Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence, the highest award conferred on schools by the US Department of Education. The district also offers athletic, musical, and theatre programs that help students to excel outside of the classroom and expand their fields of interest. Without a doubt, education is a top priority in The Chatham area.
