As you enter the long driveway and veer through the “secret garden” feel of this lush property, you’ll instantly be mesmerized by this original Sears home, a charming and sought-after piece of Americana.

Step through the front door onto hardwood floors where you’ll find a Living Room ready to soak you in. Spend peaceful mornings sipping a cup of coffee while sitting in the window seat of your bay window, getting lost in the sumptuous surrounds. The Living Room features custom blinds, crown and baseboard molding, and a wood-burning fireplace, as well as access to a screened-in porch where you can look out onto your personal piece of earth. The Porch with wall-to-wall carpeting has limitless potential and could serve as a sun room, casual dining area or party room. With access to the Backyard, guests can choose between indoor or outdoor seating. And if the weather turns bad, simply close the door and continue entertaining in the ample space while still watching the sun set or stars glisten through the transparent walls.

Back inside, the formal Dining Room boasts classy touches including hardwood floors, a chandelier and crown and baseboard molding. The Kitchen comes equipped with a built-in Whirlpool microwave, refrigerator, electric Whirlpool range, dishwasher, as well as access to the Backyard, Basement, and Porch. This functional layout invites potentially seamless dinner preparations, as you walk to the Basement to take frozen food from the freezer, into the Backyard to pick freshly grown vegetables, or out onto the Porch to serve iced tea on a hot summer’s day.

Outside you will find a Backyard that invites playful afternoons with your choice of established unusual specimen trees to picnic under, and mature plants to set the backdrop for relaxing Sunday afternoons gardening.

The Hallway bathroom features a vanity, tile floors, bathtub/shower combination, and linen closet. Adding to the convenient layout of the first floor are two Hallway closets for storage. And on this level you’ll also find two bedrooms, both with hardwood floors, closets, and tasteful aesthetic finishes.

Let’s go upstairs to the carpeted Master Bedroom, which comes with built-in bookshelves, air conditioning, a large closet, and access to attic storage. The soft pink tones and peaked roof with a skylight provide the perfect resting place, where the foliage outside the windows will serenade you to sleep. The adjoining recently renovated Master Bathroom, which includes a vanity and stand-up shower with glass door, is a convenient modern addition.

Down in the partially Finished Basement you’ll benefit from wall-to-wall carpeting, a laundry area, another walled off room, and access to the one-car attached Garage. Perfect for a Recreation Room, Office or Guest Room with the additional space with ample storage options, this versatile level has it all!

This relaxing retreat is located a short distance from the mountainous Watchung Reservation as well as the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge where you can spend weekends hiking nearby and basking in more of the local flora and fauna. Located in a family-friendly neighborhood with excellent schools and easy access to I-78 and Route 22, this home will see you through every stage of life. Create your own legacy in this rarely available historic piece of real estate.

While you should stop by the Jacob Morrell House, where George Washington is said to have lodged while his army assembled in outlying fields, you don’t need to love history to enjoy Chatham. Located less than an hour’s drive west from New York City, this quaint town not only has a rich history, but also is one of the top suburbs in New Jersey to live because of its highly- rated schools, green spaces and charming town center. Residents absolutely adore the picturesque historic downtown area and the societal elements that come with bumping into neighbors and friends at the many unique shops and restaurants that are found there.

While you should stop by the Jacob Morrell House, where George Washington is said to have lodged while his army assembled in outlying fields, you don’t need to love history to enjoy Chatham. Located less than an hour’s drive west from New York City, this quaint town not only has a rich history, but also is one of the top suburbs in New Jersey to live because of its highly- rated schools, green spaces and charming town center. Residents absolutely adore the picturesque historic downtown area and the societal elements that come with bumping into neighbors and friends at the many unique shops and restaurants that are found there. Then there is the quiet, residential appeal of neighborhoods that are populated by gorgeous center-hall colonial and craftsman style homes adorned with American flags and front porch rockers. Annual events, such as Fishing Derby at Kelley’s Pond, the Fishawack Festival, the Fourth of July Parade and the Green Fair help in preserving the small town feel. The abundant green spaces, including parks, reservations and conservation areas, make it hard to believe you’re so close to one of the greatest cities in the world.
