Located on a half acre in the Fairmount section of Hackensack, NJ, this award-winning English manor boasts four fireplaces, seven bedrooms, and many preserved architectural details.
The property is surrounded by a brick wall and fronted by a delicate metal arch framing the walkway up to the front entrance, allowing the character of the home to spill out onto the sidewalk.
Built in 1918, the house maintains its English manor style; the house’s traditional exterior remains through the preservation of its original architectural details — the imported hand-fired brick and extra thick slate roof.
This historic home boasts seven bedrooms, two full baths, and two half baths, as well as solid chestnut floors and beautifully crafted woodwork. Other amenities include central vacuum, a steam shower and spa tub in the master bath, an exercise room, a sunroom, four large closets, and a garage/carriage house.
On the ground floor of the house are crafted built-in pieces of furniture including a variety of small benches in several of the rooms and a large bookshelf, built of the same chestnut wood that can be seen throughout the interior of the space. Every room located on the first floor opens out into the garden, making the rear yard accessible from any point.
Articulate wood details frame the threshold of many of the communal spaces on the first floor and exposed wood beams adorn the ceiling of the kitchen, which offers the property an open space filled with light.
