One would never guess the vitality and convenience of Bernardsville’s center lie only blocks away from this enchanting and extensively renovated circa 1860 Colonial.  Beautifully situated along a quiet street of equally charming homes, the owner took great care to disguise the hustle and bustle of its ‘in-town’ location within minutes of fine restaurants, food shopping, the movie theater and the Mid-Town Direct train to Manhattan.   In front, a significant hedge borders the home from the street, while in back a thick forest of tall bamboo and evergreens provides total privacy to the world beyond.  With a setting totaling a little over half an acre (equal to two lots), there is plenty of room to enjoy the well-manicured side and back lawns perfectly highlighted by a beguiling gazebo, flower gardens and meandering old-brick garden walkways.   Professional landscaping and river stone hug the home’s foundation and a classic cobblestone driveway complements the outdoor space beautifully.  The possibility of expansion exists with ample side and rear yards.   The interior of the home is equally attractive and was extensively renovated in 2010 and 2011 with a high quality of craftsmanship and design by its architect/owner.  The main floor boasts a wonderful open floor plan with an easy flow throughout the rooms.  Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, a large ‘fitted closet’ room and a stunning hall bathroom.  All hardwood floors are original to the house and were refinished as part of the renovation; all of the windows are oversized Pella windows, and each is finished with white plantation shutters that allow natural sunlight to fill each room.  Recessed lighting was generously added in each of the public rooms.     The partially finished, stone-walled basement offers additional living space with a versatile office or den; a recreation/exercise room with a door to the one-car garage;  a  full bathroom and laundry room with access to the backyard. A newer roof (2010) is a lifetime Architectural composition shingle roof with copper gutters and leaders. Truly a treasure in a prized location, this home is a rare opportunity to enjoy an in-town lifestyle.
