Sold $1,900,000 SOLD (List Price: $1,495,000) - Single Family Home
A rare, single-level 3++BD/2.5BA Contemporary, 581 Mountain Boulevard is a light-filled 2516 square foot level in/level out with flexible floorplan in a quiet Glen Highlands neighborhood. The home features vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, open eat-in chef’s kitchen, family room, and updated owner’s suite. Beautifully landscaped with enclosed backyard and lush, tranquil covered patio off the kitchen. Convenient to Montclair Village and excellent commuter options.
From a shady front porch, glass-accented double front doors open to a generous marble-floored entryway, coat closet, and powder room. Pass through this lovely transition space and discover the hub of family life – an open chef’s kitchen.
The open, eat-in kitchen is a home chef’s delight, featuring an island with built-in gas cooktop, stone countertops, double oven, and dual sink. Built-in cabinets with stained glass doors add distinction and beauty, and a comfortable breakfast nook provides not only a place to eat, but space for those who want to chat while you cook. From there, an open, wood-paneled family room makes an excellent spot to watch television or play games. For a different mood, glass doors lead from the breakfast nook to a tranquil, shady enclosed patio with stone walls and flagstones, an ideal spot for al fresco dining or quiet reflection.
For ease of entertaining, the kitchen also opens onto a lovely formal dining room with high beamed ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors. Large enough for celebration dinners with extended family and friends, this is a room gracious enough for intimate candle-lit dinners as well.
Through the dining room is a light-filled living room with dramatic vaulted ceilings and a gorgeous wall of windows. A marble and wood fireplace graces one wall. Glass doors lead to an expansive enclosed backyard with lawn, lush, mature landscaping, stone patio, and koi pond – ideal for entertaining or relaxing away the stresses of the day.
Adjacent to the living room is a large bonus room with wood paneling, tile floor, and brick fireplace. Consider a private study or den with overstuffed easy chairs, or a home office or well-appointed guest room.
In the updated owner’s suite, the recessed ceiling and large sunny window create an airy feel. Two closets – one a walk-in – provide abundant storage. The adjoining bath features an oversized jetted tub with tile walls and windows above, as well as a step-in glass shower, and stone-topped vanity with dual sinks.
Two additional bedrooms with ample closets share a spacious full bath. The bath includes tile shower over tub, solid surface vanity, and built-in shelves. Down the wide entry hallway, a washer and dryer are cleverly concealed behind shuttered doors.
An attached two-car garage includes useful built-in storage and is conveniently accessed through the kitchen, making unloading groceries a breeze.
