Welcoming wrought iron gates open to a profusion of lush foliage, Creekside ambience and architectural splendor in this Fernwood district Tudor home. Acclaimed for its high concentration of storybook architecture, this residential enclave includes prominent examples of the period revival building boom of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Brick and stucco veneers, timbered beam exteriors, dormered windows, wrought iron hardware, vaulted ceilings and hand-hewn wood finishes are all iconic representations of this era and superbly displayed in this very special residence. A magnificent living room with vaulted ceiling, handsome gas fireplace, wall of multi-paned windows and built-in cabinetry serves as the dramatic centerpiece of the home. The updated kitchen opens to the family room featuring premium brand appliances with classic white cabinetry, black stone countertops and terra cotta with wood inlay floors. A bright & comfortable family room with wood burning fireplace & whitewashed brick surround, pitched beamed ceiling and French doors seamlessly transitions to the inviting side patio and yard. The sleeping quarters are equally impressive with an expansive primary suite featuring a walk-in closet, built-in wardrobe storage, gas fireplace & sumptuous bath. An additional bedroom suite on the upper level features a recently added full bath with radiant heat tile flooring and large plus space ideal for a playroom, meditative studio or wardrobe closet.
Outlooks from nearly every window bring the natural imagery indoors. Situated on approximately a quarter acre lot framed with brick and tile patios and meandering walkways there are multiple viewing posts to visually relax. An eclectic blend of red and green Japanese maples, hydrangeas, rhododendron and ferns adorn the landscape with bursts of contrasting colors creating a sculptural aesthetic.The harmonious arrangement of colorful flora merges with soothing sounds from the creek lending both privacy and tranquility to this enchanting property.
Ideally located, this residence is within minutes to Montclair Village, schools, regional parks and convenient access for commuting.

Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city.
The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant.
Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods. Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
