My Notes

Arts and Crafts detailing highlight this exceptional 1938 center-hall colonial. Commanding attention, this stucco and wood home is distinguished by a dramatic terrace extending across the entire front of the house. Images of cool beverages, lively conversation and warm summer days come immediately to mind. Now step inside. The center-hall foyer opens to the adjoining rooms and reaches back to a delightful sitting room with large windows and a convenient guest closet. Beginning in the foyer, restored parquet wood floors with dark ribbon inlays flow underfoot and continue throughout most of this main level. The front-to-back living room provides enormous space, encouraging you to arrange your furnishings as you see fit. A brick fireplace serves as the focal point and is flanked by French doors opening to the family room. Across the foyer, the dining room features an elaborate coffered ceiling, front picture window with panoramic views of the reservation and a door opening to a charming screened porch. At the conclusion to a hearty meal, your guests might enjoy dessert in this porch, and the opportunity to take in this lovely setting.Beautifully updated, this gourmet kitchen is a fabulous culinary hub. Custom cabinets are topped with granite counters giving way to a glass tile backsplash. Quality stainless steel appliances are only a step or two in any direction, and space remains for a breakfast table and chairs. Stairs lead the way up to the second level or down to the unfinished lower level. Adjoining the kitchen is the butlers pantry connecting the kitchen to the dining room and sitting room. Along the way to the sitting room, there is access to a convenient powder room.Positioned off the living room is the family room. Windows on three sides assure natural light reaches nearly every corner and there are views from virtually every direction. The charming checkerboard tile floor brings a cheery aspect to this room, while the floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace adds a blaze of drama. French doors allow this room to remain as secluded or as open as the occasion requires, and theres plenty of space for an overstuffed sofa and chairs. At the second level landing you are treated to three remarkable stained glass windows. A door opens to the service staircase and stairs leading up to the third level. A few more steps lead to a central hallway with access to four second level bedrooms. Each of these bedrooms include exposed hardwood floors  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts 07079 home values will rise 1.9% next year, compared to a 2% increase for South Orange as a whole. Among 07079 homes, this home is valued 34.5% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 11.4% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 07079, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 7.7% greater than in South Orange, and 86.7% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 07079 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in South Orange.
