Welcome to 12 Elm Place, located on a quiet, private cul-de-sac in Berkeley Heights’ coveted Free Acres Community,  you’ll find this unique treasure completely encased by nature.  This is the sort of Zen home where you can feel like you are on vacation every day.  This 3 Bedroom, plus an Office, and 3 Bath home boasts open spaces and a lavish use of windows that help bring the outdoors inside.  Located close to New York City, Midtown Direct Train and excellent restaurants/shopping, this is an incredible opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind home in the ultimate natural setting.  

As you arrive, take in the naturalistic setting with mature shade trees and low-maintenance perennials, ivy and pachysandra.   As you enter, prepare to be overwhelmed by the beautiful open spaces and thoughtful use of windows so that the home literally dissolves into nature.  The Entry Foyer includes a charming Dutch door and views of the fabulous Living Room beyond. Move easily into the outstanding, sunken Living Room that is certain to be the heart of the home.  Soaring ceilings, a stunning floor to ceiling stone fireplace and a Dining Area will take your breath away.  Tons of windows and French doors allow natural light to glow deep into the home. Flow effortlessly into the fabulous Chef’s Kitchen with custom cabinetry, a Breakfast Bar, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and plenty of space to prepare gourmet meals.  The Dining/Breakfast Area, with a bay of windows and sliding doors, makes you feel as if you are one with nature.  Curl up with a novel or watch a movie in the cozy Family Room that also opens up to the outdoors. Laundry is a pleasure in the First Level Laundry Room.  A fabulous MudRoom, conveniently located off of the side entrance, is ideal to neatly tuck away wet boots and jackets. Working from home is a dream in the etherealOffice with idyllic outdoor views, an enormous Built In with two designated workspaces and plenty of room to spread out.  A Full Bath rounds out this level.  Downstairs, a Lower Level Work Room is the perfect spot for all your DIY projects.

The real show stopper of 12 Elm Place is the scenic, natural property that envelopes the home, seen from every window, meaning you can leave artwork behind and just simply enjoy the views.  Multiple Patios and a spacious yard with no neighbors in sight, are the perfect spots for al fresco dining, listening to birds chirp, entertaining friends or just being one with nature.  Enjoy a soak in the Hot Tub and simply take in the views.

Ready to retire for the evening?  The First Level boasts the open and airy Primary Bedroom Suite offering immense privacy, gorgeous sunlight and those killer natural views!  High ceilings, an abundance of windows overlooking nature, a well-appointed Bath and a Walk In Closet make this room exceptional.  Sundrenched Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located on the Second Level and include spacious closets and plenty of windows so you feel as if you are floating in the treetops.  A tasteful Full Hall Bath rounds out the Second Level.

With its prestigious location in Free Acres, easy commute to New York City, sought after school district and convenience to fantastic shopping and restaurants, you will undoubtedly want to be the next owner of this fabulous home!

Free Acres was established in 1910 by Bolton Hall who deeded 68 acres of land to the Free Acres Association. It was founded on the philosophy that land should be owned by the community rather than by individuals. Residents receive a lease which runs for 99 years and is automatically renewed for another 99 years each time the property is “sold.” Residents pay tax associated with the house and land rent directly to the Free Acres Association and the Free Acres Treasurer then pays the town. The maintenance fee includes annual budget operating costs including garbage collection, sewer, use of pool, and basketball court. You can also rent the Farmhouse for entertaining.
