A mere walk from the picturesque downtown Kirkwood area, this handsome, two-story home resides on one of the township’s most coveted streets. From the moment you enter, it becomes evident that this contemporary abode has been updated with care and attention to detail. Pass through French glass doors to the library and head to the sunroom, lit beautifully by a wall of gorgeous windows. Granite and travertine tiling stand out in the modern kitchen, which boasts fantastic appliances, including a six-burner stovetop. Settle beside the wood-burning fireplace in the living room, which adjoins the media room. Archways and elegant millwork are trademarks of this abode. Beauty follows you as you venture outside to find the aggregate patio and yard, with a deck, Koi pond and gardener’s haven. From additional fireplaces and a partially-finished lower level to the two-car oversized garage and a wonderfully large laundry room, the property’s amenities prove extra appealing.

This 5-bedroom, 2 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in Kirkwood is listed for $894,900.
