28 Hillcrest Avenue, Cranford
Friends, I am delighted to introduce you to 28 Hillcrest Avenue, Cranford!
Just 5 blocks to Cranford’s bustling downtown (named New Jersey’s “Best Downtown” 2018 by NJ Monthly magazine!), this 3 bedroom, 1.1 bath classic Cranford colonial home has many wonderful updates including newly installed Central AC, newer windows and fencing, upgraded electric, freshly painted exterior, stainless steel appliances, is move-in ready, and shows beautifully. Perfect for a first time homebuyer looking to get into Cranford!
Nestled on a quiet side street that leads in to Lincoln Park, 28 Hillcrest welcomes you instantly with its impressive curb appeal. Step thru to the large Living Room boasting original 1921 millwork. Just off the Living Room through the French door, the Den boasts a beadboard ceiling and is the perfect spot for a dedicated office space or even use as a Playroom. The large formal Dining Room, with its gorgeous coffered ceiling and stained glass window, can accommodate a crowd and is perfect for entertaining. The Kitchen is very functional and efficient, with stainless steel appliances, an awesome breakfast nook! There is also a Powder Room, which is a big convenience and not always found in a home of this vintage.
The second floor features 3 Bedrooms, a generous full Bath, and walk up to the attic, which offers lots of potential for its future owner.
The partially finished Basement offers even more living space with a large family room, as well as laundry, and additional storage space.
The backyard is perfect for outdoor entertaining with a paver patio overlooking a private and completely fenced backyard boasting gorgeous landscaping.
Enjoy the best of Cranford’s amazing restaurants, shops, yoga, and art galleries. Also just a few short blocks to schools, parks, Cranford Public Library, Cranford Community Center, and houses of worship, there are plenty of activities at your doorstep.
Nothing to do but drop your bags and enjoy the fall evenings on your paver patio, overlooking your fabulous backyard! Fun fact: this home was featured in a national commercial!
