Spacious Colonial Revival

An inviting open front porch welcomes you to this spacious circa 1896 Colonial Revival style home filled with wonderful architectural details situated on over one half acre of beautiful property.  Enjoy a convenient ‘in town’ location in Summit’s desirable Northside neighborhood close to shops, schools and Midtown Direct train service. 

A gracious entrance foyer opens to the formal living, dining, and family rooms providing excellent flow on the main level.   The living room boasts a wood burning fireplace and a music alcove accented with decorative tiles.  A floor to ceiling brick fireplace and a stained glass window distinguish the formal dining room sizable enough for large-scale gatherings.  French doors open to a tucked away sun porch with backyard access.  The cozy family room with fireplace opens to the front porch.  Also on the first floor are a powder room, den/study and a rear porch, perfect for today’s sought-after mudroom space.  The efficiently appointed and fully functional cook’s kitchen has endless future expansion possibilities.

The second floor includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, an office/study and ample closet storage and the third floor has two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a craft/kitchenette area, terrific options for a nanny or guest quarters.  The lower level offers a tiled recreation room, a kitchenette, a full bathroom and ample storage and utility areas. 

Extensive improvements to this home include newer heating and central air conditioning systems, roof, electrical system, windows and/or storm windows….to name a few.  Enjoy a three car detached garage, a rarity for a home of this vintage.  A truly special property and opportunity, all that awaits is a proud new owner ready to create their dream home!
