In the world of Bergen County real estate, one of the most popular style of homes is the split level. It’s efficient design, open floor plan, bright sunlit interior and uncomplicated mechanical systems makes these homes highly sought after by buyers. Bergen County saw an explosion of split level home construction from 1960 through the mid 1970’s. A wonderful example of the split level design is found in my listing at 18 Ridge Road which is offered at $795,000:
To the right is the upper level where you’ll find all 4 bedrooms. The lower level of the left is the entry level where there is a formal entry hall, the living room, dining room and kitchen. One level down on the ground level is the family room, power door with laundry and entrance to the 2 car garage. There’s also a basement with a rec room and separate storage/utility room. All in all, you get a lot of living space in these mutli level homes.
The present owner renovated and expanded the home in 2004 – take a look at how well done it is:
The living and dining rooms are filled with light. The open floor plan allows for tremendous light to enter the house through the large window at front and sliding glass door across at the end of the dining room leading to the outdoor deck.
There was a lot of planning that went into this beautiful kitchen renovation and it shows.
These 2 rooms in particular demonstrate the versatility of the split level home.
18 Ridge Road was constructed around 1960 and has only had 2 owners but that isn’t all that unusual. People tend to stay here once they’ve moved in. Cresskill is a highly prized location – it has an excellent school district, robust business district, terrific town services and a very strong community spirit. It’s large enough to support it’s own school district but still very much a small town where one easily feels at home. A classic Bergen County home located in a quiet family neighborhood with an easy commute to NYC, 18 Ridge Road is simply a wonderful home.
