Beautifully renovated pre-civil war home located in the prime North side of Summit. Situated on over an acre of private property, this elegant and stately Colonial was completely renovated in 2001. Boasting 7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 4 fireplaces, this home offers the charm of yesteryear with the updates for today's living. Large sunny living room, dining room, front parlor and open kitchen to the family room offers ideal space for entertaining. The ground level includes a home office, au pair suite w/ full bath plus family room, exercise room and a separate entrance. A huge mahogany wrap around porch overlooks the yard, complimented by a heated in ground pool and pool house. A short walk to town and train, this home is within blocks of Summit's downtown and schools.

Just under 22,000 people call the city of Summit, New Jersey home and for good reason. Located in Union County, the community is just 20 miles from New York City with easy access to transportation, making it a dream for commuters who do not want to pay big city prices or spend their nights and weekends in the bustling city.

Summit is nestled at the intersection of Interstate 78 and the Morris Turnpike, and the New Jersey Transit Rail System runs right through the center of town. However, you do not have to go into the city for entertainment. The picturesque Downtown Summit is home to a number of restaurants, shops, art galleries, spas, and other ways to spend a crisp New Jersey evening or a Saturday afternoon. There are also a number of business opportunities available in town, including the corporate headquarters for Merck & Co., as well as the biotechnology company Celgene and Hibernia Atlantic.

The city sits atop the Second Watchung Mountain and borders Lake Surprise and the Watchung Reservation to the south and the Passaic River to the north. This means plenty of natural beauty in every direction. There are also a number of parks and green spaces inside Summit's 6 square miles, including many ball fields and strong youth sports organizations.

Summit has one of the highest incomes per capita in the state of New Jersey and prides itself on being an "economically and culturally diverse community." From 5K races to farmers markets, there is always something going on, and because of the great schools, a crime rate that is much lower than the rest of the New York City Metropolitan area, and access to all things work and play, Summit is the perfect place for practically anyone to call home.
