Delightful Country Colonial on 3+ Acres

Situated about halfway between the charming villages of Mountainville and Cokesbury along Water Street - one of the area’s prettiest country roads - this custom Colonial is surrounded by over three acres of natural beauty in Tewksbury. Set far back from the road on a gentle rise, this larger-than-it-looks home offers three bedrooms, two full baths, a powder room and an attached two-car garage. Sunlight streams into the open floor plan, where oversized windows frame magical views of leafy woodlands, a babbling brook and lush green lawns.

Beautifully maintained inside and out, the updated layout includes hardwood and slate flooring, crown moldings, a wood-burning fireplace, newer windows on the second level, high ceilings and recessed lights. An expansive tiered rear deck overlooks the private backyard and wooded perimeter, providing a scenic backdrop for warm weather get-togethers. 

Approached by a brick front walkway, the front door reveals a slate-floored foyer with crown moldings, a turned staircase, adjacent powder room and sightlines into some of the main gathering spaces. Both the living and dining rooms feature wood floors, crown moldings and view-filled windows. A set of French doors in the dining room opens to the roomy rear deck, while a pocket door connects to the kitchen. 

The upgraded chef’s kitchen presents slate flooring, painted cabinetry, granite countertops, a decorative backsplash and a full complement of upper-end stainless steel appliances including a Wolf gas range, Bosch dishwasher and LG refrigerator. In the adjoining breakfast area, glass doors to the deck make indoor-outdoor entertaining effortless. Continuing the open flow is a dramatic family room anchored by a floor-to-ceiling wood-burning brick fireplace. Set under vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, additional design elements in this convivial space are hardwood floors, large windows and an airy ceiling fan.

Upstairs, a sunny staircase landing tucked under a window creates a quiet spot for reading. This level offers a gracious master bedroom with hardwood floors, a walk-in closet and a private master bath. Two more bedrooms with hardwood floors share another full bath. There is also a convenient laundry area on the second floor. Completing the home is a partial, unfinished basement arranged with a workshop and utility space. 

Originally built in 1983 and upgraded through the years, this Colonial is served by a newer septic system. It is a few miles from Interstate 78 and Route 22 for commuting, shopping and dining as well as about an hour from Manhattan and approximately 45 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport. Tewksbury Township offers a Blue Ribbon School District and peaceful countryside scenery in its quaint villages, rolling farmland and equestrian estates.
