Donnybrook has added value as a location since over half of all home buyers have school aged children. This is because Demarest is renown for it’s outstanding schools. Let’s look at this Demarest home for sale first and then at the town of Demarest itself.
57 Prospect St
57 Prospect St is a bi-level home. Bi-level homes give you a lot of open space. You walk into a foyer with steps up and steps down to the 2 levels. Going up you are greeted by a nearly 22 foot long living room. It’s bright because tons of light comes in through the picture windows plus there’s a gas fireplace too.
The Formal Dining Room has French Doors out to the big covered patio overlooking the yard. What a perfect flow for entertaining! Imagine the holiday parties and family get togethers you’ll have here. This is a 3 bedroom 2 bath home; the Primary Bedroom has a full bath and walk in closet.
Down the steps takes you to the lower level where there’s a large rec room with a wet bar. Because the previous owner was a collector, there are lighted display cases too. Add in a separate laundry room and storage/utility area on your way to the 2 car attached garage.
This was a happy home that raised a family for a long time. While the senior owner maintained it very well, she didn’t redecorate. As a result, rugs cover the hardwood floors. Although it’s not been redone for years. this is a fabulous opportunity to get into the Donnybrook neighborhood. I am honored to have been asked to market this house which only needs the energy and vision of a new owner.
Demarest as a town is one of the most coveted locations in Bergen County. People who move here love it. If they bought a starter homes, they upgrade in town. This is because Demarest is a welcoming, small town with a close knit community. The business district is tiny and people like it that way. It run along the Duck Pond where Boy Scouts paddle canoes at the fall Octoberfest. eThe town has a decidedly country feeling. If you want to relax, come home to the serene ambiance here.
Demarest is also affluent. Where 57 Prospect is located, there are homes that easily start and exceed $1.5 million. What’s interest about this town is the fact that homes next to each other can be widely apart in their value. Because this has no effect on either home’s value, Demarest is very different in this regard than most towns in Bergen County. You get, as a result, an eclectic mix of homes in many parts of Demarest. I think this is a very cool part of it’s character.
People come here for the schools too. Schools in Demarest are high scoring and award winning. This is one of the strongest school districts in Bergen County. The regional high school is one of the best in Bergen. The Northern Valley Regional High School at Demarest is made up of Closter, Haworth and Demarest students.
