I just listed a great 4 bedroom home on a quiet cul-de-sac in the River Oaks section of Fair Haven. As soon as you walk in the door you see the quality and attention to details. You begin in the living room, which has a bay window and a natural gas fireplace. There are hardwood floors throughout most of the home. As you walk into the eat-in kitchen you’re greeted with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Down half a flight brings you to a large wood-paneled den that extends all the way from the front to the back of the house, so it’s filled with lots of natural light. Up half a flight you’ll find 3 bedrooms, two of which have custom, cordless-lift room-darkening cellular shades.
The master bedroom is on the top level, and it has a 7 x 7 alcove with a skylight, which makes an ideal office area. Plus a custom-designed closet for efficient organization of hanging items and items in drawers.
The basement has been completely finished and also has hardwood flooring (currently it’s being used as a playroom). French doors separate the main area from a large, bright laundry room that has a sink and lots of counter space for folding and sorting. The hot water heater is an efficient, energy-savings on demand unit.
I could go on and on. There’s a screened in porch that looks out on the large, fenced-in back yard. A stone patio and an Ipe deck provide space for outdoor activities. If you haven’t heard of an Ipe deck, Google it and you’ll see that Ipe is a super-hard wood (ironwood) that resists insect damage and is considered by many to be the world’s best decking material.
If you’re thinking of moving to Fair Haven (or if you know someone who is), this is a move-in ready home that should be considered. It’s within walking distance of a park, school and riverfront, and a short drive to the beach, downtown Red Bank and the high speed ferry to Manhattan.
