Calling all old house enthusiasts! 503 Newark Road is a phenomenal opportunity to own a piece of history! With the original section of this home dating back to 1773, you will appreciate the authentic, vintage feel while enjoying the quality trademark of an excellent renovation. Every feature of this home, such as its original hardwood flooring, wide window sills and extensive moulding, cultivates a rustic elegance.
Begin with the welcoming covered front stone porch and enter the grand foyer with oak staircase and decorative fireplace. To the right is the study, featuring a wood-paneled accent wall, beautiful wood trim, and a small fireplace. The living room is indeed a great room, with plenty of square footage to offer multiple seating areas and accommodate your piano or a large piece of furniture. The wood-burning fireplace has a stone hearth and attractive custom mantle. The bay window, hardwood floors and beautiful paneling all create a special space for gathering friends and family. Continuing through to the large, bright, dining room, you’ll have enough wall space for your artwork or custom furnishings to offer a personalized dining experience. And finally, you’ll enjoy many hours in the gourmet eat-in kitchen, cooking with the stainless steel double oven, electric range with custom hood, dishwasher in the center island, and sub zero fridge. The wood cabinetry includes a section with glass doors to feature your favorite pieces. The custom finishes, such as the backsplash, granite counters, recessed lighting and pendant lights, create an elegant and inviting ambiance, whether you’re working at the convenient desk, or serving appetizers to friends at the oversized island.
Thanks to front and rear staircases, the second level is easily accessed and includes four generously sized bedrooms, all with ceiling fans and those gorgeous new floors. The owner's bedroom has its own ensuite, a fully remodeled bathroom with a spa-like feel, walk-in glass shower, rain shower and huge walk-in closet, awaiting your finishing touches.
The third floor boasts a large bedroom featuring recessed lighting and a vaulted ceiling, with ensuite including stand-alone soaking tub, walk-in shower, and dual vanities. This fabulous space could serve as a guest room, a private space for members of a multi-generational family, or your teenager. With loads of potential, any of the third floor rooms could fulfill many functions: studio, work from home, play room, crafting, and virtual reality gaming.
The two-car detached garage, which includes pull-down attic space for additional storage, connects to the house via an attractive covered breezeway to the back door conveniently leading to the kitchen. The rear brick patio courtyard provides a lovely area to entertain, or enjoy a secluded, comfortable spot to relax.
