I just listed 511 Knickerbocker Road in Tenafly for sale at $999,900. This is a beautiful home sitting on a gorgeous half acre property with over 4,100 square feet of living space. While this house underwent a major expansion and renovation, it lost none of it’s early 20th century charm and character. The result is a uniquely special ambiance. You have both colonial charm and modern features.
There are actually 4 levels of living space because there is a separate level for a relaxed, private family room plus a finished attic. Traditional meets modern here. The first level has a fabulous entry foyer that opens to the staircase going up to your right and living room to your left. Moving further through this level you have the formal dining room and then comes modernity. The modern high end kitchen has a large dining area and expansive Family Room. This is one open space and it works brilliantly with the traditional charm beginning.
One flight up on it’s own level is the private family room which is huge by any standard. Another flight up you have the Master Suite and 3 more bedrooms. The finished attic has it’s own bath with a skylight.
Down below are not 1 but 2 separate unfinished basement areas. There is the smaller original – ideal for storage – and the new with a very high ceiling and prepped for finishing.
The house has high end materials throughout and gleaming hardwood floors. Windows (except for a few ornamental) have been changed to modern double pane. This makes the house very quiet. There are charming porches in the front and rear of the house just for relaxing. The Master Suite is stunning. It is oversized, the private bath has both a stall shower and whirlpool tub and closets so big that you can use one as a home office. In addition there is a private outdoor balcony overlooking the yard.
There are 2 fireplaces as well; one in the living room and one in the main level family room.
A Forever Home
511 Knickerbocker Road is a forever home. It is so big (5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths) that you’ll never need to upgrade. The house is a statement of success and elegance. The yard seems to go on forever. Imagine the wonderful events you’ll have here over the years from winter dinner parties to children’s birthdays to backyard weddings. There is in this home a grace and style blended seamlessly with modern features that’s rarely if ever found.
All this and the prestige of a Tenafly address! Call me today at 201-741-8490 for your own private viewing of this important Tenafly residence.
