Property Description

Solidly built and lovingly maintained by its original owners, this is a home that offers so much: classic 1950's styling for aficionados of vintage homes, good solid bones for re-modelers, and plenty of flexible floor space for imaginative decorators. Plus, this classically styled Cape Cod sits on a half-acre of land that backs to Temple Park and preserved open space maintained by the township.From the front entrance, step into a welcoming living room with hardwood floors and gas fireplace surrounded by brick. Knotty pine paneling on one wall and textured wallpaper on the others combine to create a cozy environment. From the copper-roofed bow window, admire the majesty of a massive oak planted when the home was built.To the right, a turned staircase leads up to the second level, which offers two bedrooms (one with built-in cabinetry), a full bath in the hall, and at the top of the stairs, a cedar-lined walk-in closet to store woolens.Downstairs, a dining room connects the living room to the eat-in kitchen, where a picture window brings the outdoors in, and a planked ceiling with cross beams adds a polished bit of rustic. To the right, two bedrooms share a hall bath, and to the left, a family room stretches from the front to the back of the home; the back corner, done completely in glass sliders, frames a panoramic view of the deep backyard. A wood stove with gas insert provides a cozy focal point.The partially finished basement offers ample storage in built-in knotty pine cabinetry, as well as unfinished storage spaces and a laundry room. Bilco doors allow easy in-and-out access. Additional walk-up storage is available in the garage loft.The home offers four distinct heating zones, and a concealed safe WHERE. And, while the water is currently supplied by a well, city water hook up is available.Location wise, this property is a goldmine. It is moments from 295, which offers access to major commuter routes; near train stations offering service to Philadelphia and New York City; and a short drive to Rider University, The College of New Jersey and Princeton University.
