This McGinley Square single-family detached home is huge, historic and hard to find. Built in 1915, the three-story colonial boasts 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It’s been well maintained and largely unmolested. Period details can be seen through out, such as extensive wood panelling on the main level, coffered ceilings, and original oak hardwood. The dining rooms has a statement wood burning fireplace encased in brick and surrounded by a full wall of intricate engravings.
The wood-tastic kitchen is well maintained but certainly needs an update. Its paneled ceiling, made out of what look to be cigar boxes, is something you won’t find too often.
If you’re looking for a good buy that will pay off long term then this is it. It’s located just off Bergen Avenue near the heart of McGinley Square, which is on the verge a complete transformation. Numerous development projects are in the works that will further increase the desirability of the area.

It’s priced at $569,000 which is on the higher end for the area, but considering the shortage of large, well maintained single family homes on the market, it may not be too far off.
