Description

This charming center hall Colonial is located on a pastoral country road in Chester Township where it is surrounded by neighboring horse farms and preserved farmland. Sited on two open acres, the meticulously maintained nine-room residence features four bedrooms, three full baths and a powder room. Approximately 3,545 square feet of living space creates an effortlessly flowing floor plan spanning two fully finished levels plus a large, unfinished lower level. Additionally, there is an oversized attached two-car garage.

Thoughtful updates have been made over the years, resulting in a warm and welcoming residence. Entered by a sun-lit entrance foyer, notable details include handsome crown and baseboard moldings and an oil-rubbed bronze lighting fixture. Ample storage is provided by two coat closets on either side of the custom leaded glass front door. 

The step-down living room at the front of the home has a wood-burning fireplace featuring a brick surround and elegant wood mantle with crown molding. A spacious family room adjoins the living room. Highlights of this expansive room include a dramatic floor-to-ceiling fireplace, skylights and four large windows. There is also a built-in bar area with tile countertops, counter seating for four, cherry cabinetry, a prep sink and GE refrigerator. The formal dining room is appointed with elegant crown, baseboard and chair rail moldings. A handsome fabric drum shade chandelier hangs overhead. 

A generously-sized chef’s kitchen adjoins the dining room; highlights include cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, a stainless steel Blanco sink and a crackled subway tile backsplash with decorative tile border. A center island with granite countertops  and storage cabinetry provides seating for two. The collection of appliances includes a GE refrigerator, electric cooktop, double wall ovens, microwave and Kenmore dishwasher. A separate breakfast area is illuminated by a classic wrought iron five-light candelabra chandelier. Double glass doors in the kitchen lead to a wood deck for outdoor entertaining. 

Down the hall from the kitchen is a cozy office and full bathroom. A laundry/mudroom area and a powder room complete the first floor. The main staircase in the entrance foyer leads to the second floor. 

Each of the four bedrooms is situated on the second level as well as two full baths. The master suite is comprised of the bedroom, dressing alcove, fitted walk-in closet, double closet and en suite master bath. Newly renovated, this spa-like space is appointed with a double custom wood vanity topped in a polished Carrera marble countertop and tile backsplash with glass mosaic border inlay. The luxuriously oversized shower has a seamless glass shower door, full subway tile surround with mosaic tile border, mosaic tile shower floor and Moen stainless steel shower head and handheld sprayer. There is also a built-in honed Carrera marble shower bench. Three additional bedrooms offer stunning views of the yard and have abundant storage. A spacious full bath completes the second floor. 

Outdoor amenities include a spacious wood deck and level backyard, perfect for warm weather gatherings. Bucolic views from every room and a convenient Chester Township location all add to the appeal of this picture perfect country home.

About Chester Township

When talking about Chester in southwestern Morris County, you need to distinguish between the Borough of Chester, which is the shopping village, and Chester Township, the surrounding area which is decidedly more rural. At about 1½-square miles, the borough is located at the intersection of Routes 206 and 24 and offers quaint streetscapes lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques, antique shops and restaurants. Chester Township includes 29.8 square miles of farmland, newer residential developments and historic homes.

Incorporated in 1799, over 40%--or 12 square miles--of the township is preserved as open space. There are nature reserves, parks and deed-restricted agricultural property under the state Farmland Preservation Program, which buys the development rights while allowing the farmer to retain title and continue working the land.

The Borough of Chester was incorporated in 1930, and is a separate municipality that shares many services with the township such as a library, first aid squad, fire department, community pool, athletic programs, civic organizations and schools.
