21 Canterbury LaneI just listed 21 Canterbury Lane in New Milford at $449,000.  This 2 bedroom and 2.5 bath townhouse is located right off River Road in the Canterbury Village complex.  Let me tell you about it.

What appeals to me about this complex is the fact that it’s older  construction.  Because it was developed in the mid 1980’s, it’s a whole lot quieter inside than some newer places.


The Value of Quieter Construction

I received a phone call about 2 years ago from a client.  His parents bought a new retirement condominium apartment recently out of the area.  They are not happy with this purchase because of noise.

They hear their neighbors, they hear water in plumbing pipes doing down the wall,  He describes this as “paper thin walls”.  I suggested that they contact the management association to see if some insulation can be blown in.  21 Canterbury

Canterbury Village was constructed in the mid 1980’s.  Construction was done differently then.  As a result, it’s quieter than some new complexes.  It really depends on which complex you’re talking about because they’re all different.  I’ve never had a noise complaint about Canterbury Lane units.

Let’s talk about space.  Space is important.  So is a functional floor plan.  You’ll find both here.  Walking up a few steps you enter into a foyer.  Then it’s up a few steps more to the main floor.  Living and dining rooms are good sized.  Here is a luxury feature – the living room is sunken.  The dining room overlooks it because it’s open between both rooms.  While you have an open aspect, each room is separate.  As a result, you get the best of both worlds.  Additionally the living room has a fireplace and sliding glass door to the deck.

New Milford homesKitchen is great too and has room for a breakfast table and chairs.  Custom designed with wood cabinets and granite you will enjoy the terrific storage.  There’s also a guest Powder Room on this level.

Upstairs will impress you.  The Master Bedroom is very spacious with 3 double closets and a renovated full bath.  This is beautifully done plus there’s a skylight which adds abundant light.

There is a downstairs too.  You’ll find is a home office space, a storage room and access to the 2 car garage.  The garage is big.  You can line it with a storage system if you wish.  No squeezing out of your cars in this garage.

Great Changes

The owner made some wonderful changes.  He put in hardwood floors throughout.  Upstairs was completely carpeted before.  Also added was beautiful detailing and crown moldings on the 1st floor and the basement home office space was unfinished originally.

21 Canterbury Ln is a treat to behold.  It so has the feeling of a single family home even though it’s a townhouse.  You will be able to host large parties here or just unwind in the quiet.  Imagine the fun you’ll have!  Considerably superior in design, workmanship and luxury features than what you’ll find elsewhere, it offers much.  You can downsize here in style or start home ownership without the hassle of exterior maintenance.

Come on over to 21 Canterbury Lane in New Milford NJ this Sunday, Oct 4th, from 1 to 4 pm.  You’ll be glad you did!
