Property Description

Nestled in the heart of historic Berkeley Square, 940 Berkeley Ave offers a unique blend of classic architecture and modern updates, perfect for those looking to imprint their personal style on a property rich with character. Guests and residents alike are greeted by a picturesque wraparound porch that sets the stage for relaxation and neighborhood interaction. The fenced yard promises a private outdoor space for gatherings and leisure, complementing the home's welcoming exterior. Inside, the spacious foyer features a built-in bench seat featuring lift-top storage, an ingenious solution for maintaining an uncluttered entrance. The interior boasts fresh paint and new appliances that harmonize seamlessly with the original period details. Notable features include a tin roof accenting much of the main level, detailed moldings, and thoughtfully placed built-ins, all echoing the home's rich history. The living spaces are truly the heart of this home, highlighted by three distinctive fireplaces arranged in a unique triangular layout, each facing outward to a different room, including the foyer, living room, and dining room, with each fireplace featuring an original tile surround and unique mantel that contribute to the eclectic ambiance of each space. The main living area is bathed in natural light, thanks in part to a large walk-in bay window in the living room, complete with built-in bookcases for your literary collection. The dining room has yet another expansive bay window, this one with a long bench seat under another expansive bay window and a built-in breakfront for displaying cherished items or serving pieces. The kitchen is both functional and stylish, equipped with granite counter tops, a full suite of Samsung stainless steel appliances, and pristine white cabinetry. A butlers pantry and a conveniently located updated powder room enhance the practicality of this space. Upstairs, the living quarters include a primary suite and four additional bedrooms sharing a hall bath. The finished attic offers three extra rooms and loft space, complete with new carpeting and a cedar closet, providing ample space for a home office, playroom, or additional storage. Recent updates also include two new air conditioning units and a new roof, ensuring comfort and peace of mind. This property is ideally located near Cadwalader Park and Arthur J. Holland Middle School. While it captures the essence of historical elegance, it remains a canvas ready for your personal touch to create a home that truly feels like your own. Embrace the opportunity to own a piece of Trenton's history at 940 Berkeley Ave, where historic charm meets modern living.
