This modern home with three bedrooms and two and half bathrooms is for sale for $715,000. But the house itself is only part of what makes a home. Good neighborhoods have amenities, appearance and accessibility.
“The neighborhood is in a 75-acre community that focuses on preserving nature,” said Realtor Leslie Ruppel with J.H. Realty Partners. “There are groomed walking paths, a small pond and gazebo for the neighborhood to enjoy and a babbling stream that is very relaxing to listen to.”
The neighborhood connects to the Ada walking and bike path that allows residents to go to downtown Ada or Roselle Park on a safe path.
The residence is set on a serene 0.168-acre lot that offers tranquility and highly coveted privacy.
The open concept main floor allows for natural light and views of private backyard. There are fireplaces in the family and living room areas.
The gourmet kitchen features high-end appliances, including a Dacor Epicure range, stove, and warming drawer. There is also an Asko dishwasher and Grohe faucets. There is custom cabinetry with an abundance of counter space.
The home has three large bedrooms – two on the main floor and one on the lower level. The owners suite has cathedral ceilings, dual closets and a private bath with heated floors.
The bathrooms are spacious and functional. There is a full and half bathroom on the main floor and a full bathroom on the lower level.
The lower level of this home has a huge office, in floor-heat throughout, living areas with a second fireplace, wet bar, and a third bedroom.
The garage holds up to four cars. There are two stalls behind the normal two stall garage that has 220 outlets and is heated. The area is described as perfect for storing a summer car, boat or motorcycles.
