I have just listed an Edgewater home for sale at 7 Rockwood Place. It’s going into 3 MLS systems tomorrow so I can give you an early notice as a coming soon listing.
The reason for the sale is simple. Edgewater homes are almost always small. The owner expanded her family so she needed a larger residence. Because she didn’t want the hassle of getting a house ready for showing, she moved and then put this home up for sale. As a result, showings can easily be tailored to your schedule.
7 Rockwood Place
7 Rockwood Place is a single family home on a small dead end street. Edgewater homes are typically small with little or no parking. This home has the luxury of a 2 car garage which is huge here.
Another plus are the updates. Both the kitchen and 2nd floor bath have been modernized plus the windows are all vinyl replacements. The 1st floor has an office space at the back with windows looking out onto the Hudson River. It’s really a nice sunny space for working remotely.
The living room is quite large and there’s a full bath on the 1st floor as well. All you need is a sleeper sofa and you’re set up for overnight guests. Upstairs is a front Master Bedroom and 2 nice tandem bedrooms plus the redone main bath. This bath has a whirlpool tub for melting your cares away.
The basement is unfinished and provides excellent storage. There’s also a laundry room and access to the rear deck. The dining room is an open space to the custom designed kitchen where you’ll find a center island and plenty of cabinets.
You’ll also find a SubZero refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. The working triangle is ideal making this a great kitchen for both a serious cook and for hanging out at the breakfast bar center island.
Edgewater is always so popular because it’s on top of the George Washington Bridge and has a ferry to Manhattan. This is a wonderful commuting location and schools are great too. While it was a factory town in the early 20th century, Edgewater has become a mecca of development with new construction happening constantly and sophisticated shopping malls. Whole Foods, Starbucks, Barnes & Noble are just some of the stores you’ll find along with many of Bergen County’s best restaurants.
Rockwood Place is a small, 1 block long street so it’s a very private location. Because it’s 1 block from River Road, location is also great for so many other things too.
Commuting to Work in New York City
You can walk to the ferry in 15 minutes and once aboard, it’s only 10 minutes to Manhattan. If you don’t want to walk, there’s a free shuttle service for you.. If you’d rather just take the bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, New Jersey Transit has this option too. Take NJ Transit Bus # 158.
Whether you’re driving across the George Washington Bridge, taking the mid town ferry to 39th Street or the bus to the 41st Street Port Authority Bus Terminal, Edgewater is an easy commute. Add in all the wonderful restaurants and stores for an unbeatable combination. No wonder Edgewater is in high demand.
