A unique chance to move right in to an impeccably renovated Millburn Tudor that features meticulous upgrades and details. From the picture-perfect white picket fence with arbor to the front covered side porch all surrounded by English gardens, this home is packed with 21st century designer touches while maintaining its original charm.
Step right through the quaint rounded red front door to an entry foyer with a slate tile floor and coat closet, which opens to a bright and airy Living Room with recessed lighting, hardwood floors and a stone fireplace with wood mantle. An arched doorway takes you into the formal Dining Room, where crown molding and hardwood floors convey a warm mood for special family holiday dinners and every day dining alike.
The spacious eat-in kitchen easily serves as the central gathering spot for friends and family. Its expansive countertops and cabinets and updated appliances will make entertaining for either the family or a big party effortless and organized. It has a contemporary open design, yet keeps in the traditional lines of the home. Stainless steel appliances offset the earthy neutral tones of the maple cabinets, granite countertops and decorative tile backsplash. A built-in desk area will keep paperwork organized or homework help possible while preparing meals. A large slider door allows for plenty of bright light and access to the painted rear deck for summer BBQs and warm weather entertaining, while the central air conditioning will keep things cool inside. The youngsters will enjoy the open level yard during any season of the year. Opening directly to the kitchen is the Family Room with vaulted high ceiling, plantation ceiling fan and hardwood floors, this room will sure to be a favorite for the entire family. Rounding out this level is a conveniently located Powder Room with a pedestal sink, wood floor and wainscoting.
Take the decorative wrought iron railing and carpeted steps up to the home’s second level, which boasts three generously sized bedrooms all with hardwood floors, excellent closet space and a designer paint palette. The shared renovated hallway bath features a black and white tile floor, shower over tub with subway tile, glass door and a vanity with ample storage. A decorative door opens into a private entry landing with a carpeted stairway, which leads up to the Third Level Master Suite. Set apart, the Master Suite allows for privacy and tranquility, with sprawling vaulted ceilings and a spacious walk in closet with built in shelving. The Master Bath features a stall shower with decorative tile, coordinating tile flooring and an inlay Victorian style vanity with storage.
A sprawling Recreation Room with a tile floor and recessed lighting is the perfect space for an entertainment center, game tables and exercise equipment. A storage closet, laundry facilities and built-in modular shelving keeps things organized and tidy.
Outside, the mature garden features a variety of roses, hydrangeas, bulbs, a Japanese Maple tree, amongst other plantings. The professionally-maintained landscape is accented by automatic in-ground lighting as well as sprinklers. A low-maintenance white vinyl fence provides a great space for kids or pets to enjoy the beautiful yard and treescape. Finally, a large two-car garage with significant storage capacity adds to the already ample parking space in front – more than enough for 4+ vehicles or bikes to ride to the South Mountain School – at the end of the block, with 3 playgrounds, Taylor Park or the South Mountain Reservation all nearby.
A gem in the heart of much-desired town of Millburn, any family will feel right at home with easy walking access to public transportation into Manhattan, Blue Ribbon schools, downtown shopping and five-star dining while surrounded by the vibrant, tight-knit South Mountain community.
