Completely updated, 31 North Drive in Livingston is a turnkey home ready for you and your family. This spacious house, located on a peaceful cul-de-sac on over an 1 ½ acres of lush grounds, is an ideal space for those who like the quiet, but still want to be near to bustling downtown Livingston and New York City.  First, take a look at the long winding driveway that lends itself to the roomy two-car attached garage. Notice the expansive front yard, set far back from the street, with professional landscaping and a lovely stone walkway, not to mention the incredible sprawling grounds, making the property the largest grounds in the neighborhood and truly special. As you enter the home, you’ll be blown away by the flawless newly refinished hardwood floors throughout. Bright recessed lighting throughout ensures your home stays well-lit at night while large windows bring plenty of sunlight in during the day.

The Foyer is home to three deep coat closets to hide away shoes, coats, and messy sports equipment. Straight ahead is your formal Living Room, with a classic wood-burning fireplace and handsome brick surround. In the Living Room, you have plenty of room to host family get-togethers and just the regular game night in front of the fire. Giant windows give a phenomenal view of the Backyard, which includes a generously sized brick patio with gas grill hookup. The Formal Dining Room offers enough room to put your favorite table under the modern chandelier. Walk right into the beautiful Eat-In Kitchen that includes enough space for a large kitchen table to enjoy family meals together. With granite countertops and new top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, the dream Kitchen has all the bells and whistles, as well as ample counter space plus a useful island for an extra food prep area. Other features, such as a double stainless steel sink, brand new double wall oven, an abundance of cabinet and food storage space, and an oversized refrigerator make this a dream Kitchen to remember.  Relax after dinner in the cozy Family Room that is connected to the Kitchen for convenience. Off to the other side of the Kitchen, you’ll find an adjacent, updated bathroom with a stall shower and a large Laundry Room with a Maytag washer/dryer set. The Side Door leads to a lovely porch area, perfect for enjoying a book during the warm spring months.

From there, head downstairs to the huge, clean and dry basement that would be easily finished with a few touches. Back upstairs, you’ll find a unique feature of this home: a back staircase off the Kitchen leads to an additional bedroom. This fun hideaway is the perfect spot to put your home office, music room, play room, or make it a private guestroom for your friends and family to stay.

Head back down the secret staircase to walk over to the bedroom area. There are four additional Bedrooms, each with a large closet, immaculate hardwood floors, large windows, and useful ceiling fans. This section of the home includes a huge Linen Closet in the hallway and a gorgeous Hallway Bathroom. This sunny bathroom is ideal for giving the kids baths at night in the large, deep bathtub that is surrounded by a lovely tiled backdrop. The Master Bedroom is truly a space to remember. You’ll have two ample sized closets, gleaming hardwood floors, a breezy ceiling fan for hot summer nights, and an en-suite Master Bathroom for privacy. The Master Bathroom is a stunning masterpiece, and includes a deep bathtub and shower combination with composite marble tiling.
