Captivating Cape Cod

Inspired by Cape Cod cottage style architecture, this two plus bedroom, one & one half bath home is centrally located in the highly coveted neighborhood of Upper Rockridge. A white picket fence and lush flowering foliage lend privacy and natural imagery to the iconic appeal of this enchanting property. Built in 1938, period finishes have been beautifully preserved while tasteful kitchen and bath renovations uphold the integrity of the home’s design lineage. Richly stained peg and groove random plank oak flooring, French doors, distinctive molding, built-ins, multi-pane windows and a stately fireplace are but a few of the prominent interior hallmarks which define the properties’ character.

Accentuating linear qualities and cool expanse lends sophistication to the warm and inviting aesthetics. The split level floor plan seamlessly provides separation of space between the living area and sleeping quarters.  The main level is comprised of an expansive living room, a well-appointed kitchen which opens to the dining area and solarium room bathed in natural light.  Classic design elements have been artfully integrated into the recently remodeled kitchen replete with subway tile backsplash, open wood shelving, crisp white cabinetry, butcher block & marbled quartz countertops, walk-in pantry, and stainless steel appliances. Two generously proportioned bedrooms, ample closets and a full bath with timeless black and white tile finishes occupy the upper level of the property.  The spacious lower level featuring a half bath, laundry area and built-in storage is ideally suited as an additional bedroom, in-law quarters, family room or home office with exterior access.

Creative hardscapes combine with a profusion of colorful floral and fruit varietals to frame the exterior. Meandering brick and stone pathways connect multiple outdoor retreats designed for quiet enjoyment or entertaining guests. Conveniently situated, this captivating home is minutes to Rockridge and Montclair Village shopping & restaurants, parks, highly ranked schools and transportation.
