Welcome to this classic 6-bedroom lovingly maintained Glen Ridge colonial loaded with Old World craftsmanship, located on Ridgewood Avenue, one of the most prestigious streets in town, convenient to New York City transportation, shops, schools, parks and more!

Updates include a new roof (2019), updated eat-in kitchen (2020), refinished 3rd floor (2021), and newer mudroom (2017).

Step up to the spacious wraparound porch and into the foyer and den with natural woodwork and gracious wood columns. Intricate parquet floors with ribbon inlays run throughout most of the first floor. 

The sunny living room sports a bank of bay windows overlooking the front yard. A pair of pocket doors lead to the formal dining room with a decorative fireplace, beamed ceiling, and plate rails.

The eat-in kitchen, which boasts stainless steel appliances and wide plank flooring, leads to a newer mudroom, and access to the back deck, inviting yard and double-wide driveway and 2-car garage.

On the second floor you’ll find 4 generous bedrooms, including the primary with ceiling fan, walk-in closet and bay windows, as well as a full bath with tub/shower in the hall. The third floor features 2 more bedrooms and a storage room that could be made into a bathroom.

The full unfinished basement has a newer hot water heater.

Located less than a mile to the Glen Ridge Train Station and bus to NYC (there’s also jitney service to the train station that stops on the corner of Ridgewood Ave. and Cross St.), this lovely home is also convenient to all the shops and restaurants in Montclair, Glen Ridge and Bloomfield along Bloomfield Ave.

It’s all here! Welcome home!
