Helping you achieve calm 26 Fitzrandolph Road, West Orange The Place to See. The care that’s been given to the outside of this home is just a hint of what’s to come when you open the front door. You will be pleasantly surprised as you move room-to -room enjoying the space, traditional colonial charm and future possibilities.

B

elieve it or not, your private oasis starts at the front door. As you relax on the enclosed porch you can watch the movements of the day without ever being noticed. The abundance of light makes it the perfect place for an indoor garden area, too. The wall of windows here gives the living room an even more expansive feel. The woodburning, brick fireplace, flanked by stained glass windows becomes the centerpiece of this room. If it’s cool, you can cuddle up by the fireplace with a good book and wind down from a long day. If it’s warm you can open the windows, turn on the fan and beckon the breeze to flow through. The neutral colors throughout most of the home gives flexibility in making any decorating style shine before you ever need to pick up a paint brush. Notice that the wood floors begin in the living room and continue into the dining room and even under the carpet upstairs. When you are on the first floor, wherever you look, you get a feeling of openness, spaciousness, and calm. The dining room is substantial enough to have a table that can comfortably seat eight or more. Right off this room is the space currently being used as an office and one of the play areas.

GROWTH WATCH When you are ready to expand, don’t fret. With the 22’ x 23’ attic space, you can easily transform this level to become a master bedroom, office, play room, studio, and more. To make this space even more valuable, you can have the stairway open onto the 8’ x 9’ landing instead of opening into the bedroom. You can also turn the office/play area on the first floor back into a separate bedroom suite. Just add the oversized bedroom door back and ‘poof’ you have a 12’ x 9’ bedroom with its own separate, expansive bathroom. Perfect as a guest room, nanny quarters or anyone wanting to have space away from the other bedrooms or who doesn’t prefer stairs.

EAT. DRINK. BE HAPPY. GO AHEAD. INDULGE YOURSELF.

Decide to enjoy a meal in the dining room or create your own bistro atmosphere in the eat-in-kitchen that was renovated just a few years ago. The space is wrapped in granite countertops that are flanked with tile backsplash. The new wall-oven was just installed in June and, along with the other appliances, helps to continue the clean lines throughout.

You will be pleasantly surprised as you walk upstairs and realize the abundance of space on the second floor landing. All three upstairs bedrooms have wood floors underneath the carpet. The walkup attic can be accessed from the girl’s bedroom. The newly renovated, upstairs bathroom is wrapped in classic subway tiles and has all new fixtures, including the Jacuzzi tub. Don’t forget the basement family room that has its own powder room. The open space provides the opportunity for many uses. The laundry facilities and utilities are both located in separate areas. The new furnace and hot water heater were installed earlier this year and the electric box has been upgraded.

PSST... WHAT ARE THE NEIGHBORS SAYING? “This was a smooth and easy process. With three young children, we thought that it would be impossible to keep the home presentable on a daily basis, but Beverly and her team came in and showed us how to be minimalist through the process and staged our furniture to suit the space, which made it relatively easy to keep our home ready for potential buyers. Beverly was very professional, extremely organized and quick to respond to our phone calls and e-mails. She was definitely "on our side" throughout the entire process. After working with another realtor in the purchase of our new home outside the area, we realized how lucky we were to have worked with Beverly in selling our home. It was an absolutely wonderful experience from beginning to end.” — The Saintils, Waddington Avenue

“We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done and continue to do. “ — The Muzeaus, Knollwood Drive
