The tree-lined streets of Chatham Township are just an inviting prelude to the home at 16 Jay Road, an expanded cape style home with wonderful curbside appeal and flexible living spaces. You’ll be instantly drawn in as you approach the home and see flowers cascading from the charming window boxes. A short walk up the bluestone path and through the wooden door with decorative sidelights leads you into the welcoming Entry Foyer and your first glimpse of all this home has to offer.

Proceed into the Living Room where warm hued hardwood floors, large front facing windows and attractive dentil moldings set the perfect tone for quiet TV time with the family or a festive get together, while enjoying the warmth emanating from the large fireplace. Continue onto the Kitchen, fitted with custom cabinetry accented by Corian countertops and high end stainless appliances that make preparation a dream. A two-tiered Corian center island serves as both a spacious food prep area and as a convenient desk space for daily paperwork. The Kitchen is open to the Dining Room and to an inviting Family Room with vaulted ceilings, large windows overlooking the expansive backyard and sliding doors leading the wooden deck and brick paver patio below. It’s a perfect place to gather for some quality family time. For some relaxation, proceed to the nearby Sun Room with three fully windowed walls and enjoy lounging with your favorite book as the suns rays stream in from every angle. On the opposite side of the home, a charming office with distinctive stained glass doors provides the perfect place to work from home while a conveniently located Powder Room completes the first level living space.

When it’s time to retire for the night, proceed up the grand center staircase to one of the 4 bedrooms and 2 baths on the second level. The light filled Master Suite awaits with plenty of closet space and a spa-like en suite bath with granite topped vanity and built-in framed mirror. Enjoy time in the sunken tub that sits just below windows facing the greenery outside. 3 additional bedrooms with plenty of closet space and daylight assure everyone enjoys their own personal retreat with the convenience of a Full Hall Bath just outside.

And there’s more…on the way down to a fully finished lower level you’ll enjoy easy access to a fully equipped Laundry Room as well as to the 2 car garage. Continue down the stairs to a spacious Recreation Room that provides plenty of space for day and night fun. An additional bedroom with exterior access and a recently upgraded en suite Powder Room assures additional options for your family’s changing needs.

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.
