Classic Architecture Graces Brick Georgian Colonial

This authentic brick Georgian Colonial is a stunning presence on two-plus manicured acres in Chester Township. Situated in a neighborhood of other luxury homes, this spectacular residence offers five bedrooms, three full and two half baths just minutes from historic downtown Chester. Numerous updates grace the open floor plan, including a chef’s center island kitchen, gracious master suite and generously-sized main rooms. The rear deck overlooks an expansive fenced backyard as do many oversized windows within the sun-splashed interior.

Highlights of the layout include hardwood floors on both levels, custom moldings, built-ins, two fireplaces, high ceilings, recessed lights and French doors. A landscaped front walkway leads to the columned main entrance. The front entrance foyer reveals marble floors, a formal staircase and open views into adjacent rooms. On either side of the foyer, the dining and living rooms feature circle top windows, double crown moldings and wainscoting. A set of French doors lead from the living room to the fireside library clad in richly-toned wood paneling and built-in cabinetry. The windowed conservatory, filled with natural light, overlooks the backyard. 

An impressively updated chef’s kitchen presents designer cabinetry, granite countertops, a decorative tile backsplash, high-end stainless steel appliances, tile flooring with mosaic inlays and a rear staircase. The bright, airy dining area’s sliding glass doors open to the deck for warm weather entertaining. Continuing the open flow is a cathedral ceiling family room anchored by a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and sliding glass doors to the deck.

Upstairs, the master suite boasts a bedroom with high tray ceiling, an oversized sitting room and handsome master office. The master bath has a jetted tub, double sink vanity and sizeable shower. Four more bedrooms share two more full baths on this level. An abundance of additional living and recreational space has been created in the walkout basement where bonus areas are suitable for multi-purposes.

Located just off Old Chester Road, this timeless Colonial is close to shops, restaurants, schools, a network of highways and mass transit options.

New updates include gourmet kitchen, crown moldings and hardwood floors throughout. Open floor plan. Spacious master suite with sitting room. Finished walkout lower level with great recreation space. Large, fenced-in, professionally landscaped backyard.

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.
