Welcome to 7 Martin Place in the heart of the historic Manor Section of Chatham. Originally built in the 1840’s, a complete 1999-2000 restoration earned the Chatham Historical Society Award for External Home Preservation. With original period details evident at every turn, and the finest in modern amenities to compliment them, the restoration has only enhanced the character of this classically unique residence.

Upon arrival, you will pass through 8 stately white columns and marvel at the rich mahogany flooring of the expansive wraparound porch. Then, step into the Entry Foyer where you’ll instantly feel the openness and inner warmth of this ageless beauty. The soaring ceilings, original oak floors and woodwork details will give you your first taste of what the home has to offer. Proceed through a broad archway into the formal Living Room where the original hardwood floors gleam from light streaming in through large windows. Gather in front of the impressive fireplace with detailed wood mantel and marble surround while entertaining groups large and small. Just across the foyer is the elegant Dining Room also adorned with hardwood floors, large windows and a magnificent original crystal chandelier that’s been restored to perfection. A more elegant dining setting will be hard to find. The adjacent gourmet Kitchen featuring a huge center island, top-of-the-line appliances and custom cabinetry accented by fine granite is the ideal setting for the preparation of a gourmet creation or a quick snack at the breakfast bar, while the Breakfast Area featuring a chrome chandelier and large bay window with backyard views, provides an additional dining option. After the meal, retire to the cozy Den to grab an after dinner drink from the built-in dry bar and then watch a movie in front of the gas operated fireplace. The open and airy Family Room with thirteen screened windows and access to the wrap-around porch provides an additional option for relaxation time. A conveniently located Powder Room with Laundry Room alcove completes the first level living space.

When it’s time to retire for the night, you’ll stroll up the grand staircase to the second level where unlimited charm exudes throughout the sleeping quarters. The luxurious Master Suite is drenched in light from large windows and boasts a luxurious en suite bath and private dressing area for your convenience. Three additional bedrooms on the second level, each with hardwood floors and plenty of closet space, along with a full hall bath assure the comfort of family and guests while 2 additional bedrooms, a full bath and an office on the third level provide even more options.

And there’s more…a spacious lower level recreation room with built-in entertainment center provides plenty of space for daytime activities and game nights with friends, while a separate fully carpeted Bonus Room is ideal for setting up as a home gym, hobby room and more. Outside, the stone patio that sits below a canopy of mature trees has summer views of blossoming hydrangeas and provides an inviting locale for outdoor entertaining, while sitting on the wrap-around porch in a rocking chair couldn’t be more relaxing.

This home is a testament of timeless beauty renovated to sheer perfection. With its classic 19th century style, park-like grounds and close proximity to world-class shopping, fine restaurants and a top notch school district, 7 Martin Place is truly a one-of-a-kind home.

“Our sale of a higher-priced home in Chatham Borough was complicated by a number of factors that required particular skill around negotiation, timing, market knowledge and understanding of the motivations and needs of both ourselves as sellers and our bidders. Sue Adler was a steady, smart and reliable partner in this challenging process and we feel she and her team delivered the best possible outcome for us.”

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.

Many homes in Chatham Borough are within walking or biking distance of the Chatham train station, making it easy for commuters to get to work without the harrowing experience of trying to grab a parking spot early in the morning.
