Homebuyers with exquisite taste and an appreciation of history will fall in love with 314 Glen Avenue. This charming cotswald cottage, tucked high above the street, was fully renovated and expanded in 2013 making it an ideal spot for a variety of lifestyles. Although the home was completely renovated in 2013, the original details and layout were preserved to maintain the historical elements. Many of the rooms include sloping ceilings, exposed beams, and cathedral ceilings. Just blocks to the Millburn train station and all that downtown Millburn has to offer, upon purchasing this move-in ready space, you won’t need to lift a finger in order to feel right at home. Although the original structure was built around the turn of the 20th century, every inch has been recently expanded and upgraded, to provide selective buyers with the best of both worlds.

As you head up the handsome, winding stone walkway to the front door, feel at peace while admiring the lush, professionally landscaped front yard. You are greeted by the charming country-style that the home exudes, while offering a perfect blend of modern updates throughout from the second you arrive. Open the front door to relax in your spacious new Living Room boasting a wood-burning fireplace, you can take a step back in time and gaze at the gorgeous, original exposed beams that highlight the high cathedral ceiling. When you entertain guests, show off your enviable china collection in the Dining Room’s built-in wood cabinet. Both highly functional and aesthetically appealing, the Kitchen is a true masterpiece. While the kids enjoy Saturday morning pancakes on the oversized, granite-topped island that doubles as a breakfast bar, you will be cooking perfect omelets on your six-burner Viking stove while the muffins bake in the double oven. Store all your odds and ends in the vast selection of custom-built cabinets all made from natural, reclaimed wood from a Pennsylvanian farm. Also in the Kitchen, you can enjoy the wine chiller, high-end Miele dishwasher, refrigerator covered by custom cabinetry, and additional refrigerator drawers under the countertop. Nestle your kitchen table by the built-in bookshelf and cabinetry, also made from reclaimed wood, in the corner of the Kitchen. In this open-concept space, the Kitchen opens right onto the Family Room, where the handsome exposed beams continue. Every warm night, open the doors from the Family Room to the luxurious backyard to appreciate summertime meals on your bluestone patio. Notice the antique well in the Backyard that is original to the home. Let Fido run around the yard and have the kids play on the swing set without a single worry—the entire yard is secured by a property-wide fence. Throwing the kids’ soccer uniforms into the wash is a breeze with the convenient First Floor Laundry Room, outfitted with a Whirlpool washer/dryer set. There is also a Powder Room with a lovely antiqued farmhouse vanity for your guests to admire on the First Level, as well as a handy Backdoor Mudroom with built-in hooks and cabinetry for storage.

314 Glen Avenue is not only an artistic gem: it is also astonishingly functional. There are two Master Bedrooms—one on the First Level and another on the Second. In both spaces, you’ll be undeniably comfortable. In the downstairs Master, there is plenty of room for rest and relaxation, but perhaps the most appealing aspect is the large Dressing Room across the hall. With custom cabinetry, shelving, and hanging rods galore, you’ll never fight about closet space again. Off the Dressing Room, there is a lovely Master bathroom with a double vanity and tiled stall shower. Find the second Master Suite upstairs, along with two additional Bedrooms. The Upstairs Master features a roomy walk-in closet and a stunning en-suite bathroom. The two other Bedrooms also include large closets, gleaming hardwood floors, and remote controlled ceiling fans.

The crown jewel of 314 Glen Avenue is hidden right beyond the downstairs Master Bedroom: the original house structure, with all historic details kept intact. Now this space functions as a Den, Library, or additional Bedroom, but before any add-ons, the entire home was comprised of this single room. It features original wood ceiling beams settled in the cathedral ceiling, original closet doors, incredible stone flooring, and warm fireplace, which was updated with a gas hookup but historically preserved with the original mantle. Downstairs, the kids can stay entertained even during the chilly winter months when they can’t go outside. A large, carpeted Recreation Room allows the children space to play dress-up, watch movies, and race Matchbox cars. Let your in-laws stay for the weekend in their own space thanks to a convenient Murphy bed also located in the Finished Basement. Yet another full Bathroom is located right off the Rec Room for ease of use. There is access to the garage from the Basement, so you and the family van stay protected from the elements while lugging in the weekly groceries.

Short Hills is one of the top towns in New Jersey, with Blue Ribbon schools and easy access to New York City via major highways or the New Jersey Transit system. Downtown Millburn is abundant with great restaurants and high-end shopping, and the exclusive Mall at Short Hills is but a short drive away. You’ll also be just blocks to acres of open space in the South Mountain Reservation. With it’s sought after location, Blue Ribbon schools, easy access to NYC transportation, and world class shopping and restaurants, 314 Glen Avenue is the perfect place to call home.
