Englewood homes are highly prized for their gracious old world charm. The East Hill is famous for its many grand estates that are surrounded by towering oak trees, 15 foot high native rhododendrons and flowering fruit trees. Such beauty and ambiance is not only found on East Hill acre estates; west side Englewood homes are equally beautiful just on a smaller scale.
Traditional colonial and Tudor style homes with gorgeous woodwork framed by 30-40 foot trees are in abundance here. Many of these Englewood homes also feature stained glass windows, gorgeous inlaid wood floors and chestnut trim. Traditional floor plans create ideal flows for entertaining and the friendly neighborhoods are exceptionally stable – turnover isn’t high here because people love living here. In fact it’s not at all unusual to see people stay in their Englewood home for decades after their children have grown up and moved on. As a result you’ll find long time residents on every street as well as new young families.
A perfect example is my listing at 315 Katherine Street. This traditional colonial is located on a hidden street – ask most folks and they’ve never heard of Katherine Street and when you try to find 315 Katherine Street 07601 on your GPS you are bound to get lost. This 1 block long street is at the end of St Nicholas Street which is itself a dead end. Extremely quiet with 100 year old trees, it’s as if you’re on a country lane yet you’re only a 15 minute drive to New York City.
Englewood homes on the west side are also quite affordable as far as Bergen County homes are concerned – at an asking price of $345,000 this 3 bedroom 1.5 bath home sits on a 50 X 110 lot in a terrific location. Come see 315 Katherine Street – you’ll be glad you did!
