This Week's Featured Listing: 612 Park Place in River Vale

Real Estate Agent

612 Park Place in River ValeI know that as a Realtor, homes are supposed to be like kids. We’re supposed to love ‘em all equally. But I have to confess, I have a soft spot for this brick-and-cedar ranch in the heart of the Pascack Valley.

Tucked away on a corner lot at 612 Park Place in River Vale, the house features hardwood floors throughout. The eat-in kitchen adjoins a spacious dining room with gorgeous natural light. The dining room, meantime, flows naturally to a sunken living room that’s anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. There’s a master bedroom with bathroom (practically unheard of at this price), in addition to two other cozy bedrooms (one of which could very easily double as a home office) and an additional full bathroom. To top it all off, there’s an attached two-car garage to afford you off-street parking.

This is a builder’s home that was originally built in the 1960’s. It would make an ideal starter home, but it would be just as well suited to an urban sophisticate looking to escape the bustle of the city (not to mention the tight confines of your typical city apartment). In addition to the usual amenities of home, it’s filled with thoughtful little touches, from the tiled entry to the ample storage that includes a large cedar closet.

Stylistically speaking, the house shows its age; Martha Stewart might frown at the color of the bathroom tiles, or turn up her nose at the 60’s vintage kitchen cabinets. However, this ranch has been well-maintained and is solid throughout. Furthermore, the hot water heater, furnace, and air conditioning system are all recent and in excellent working order. All this, and enough room to swing a cat.

This home is located on a very quiet street, and the secluded two-tier deck in the back of the house reinforces the feeling of a tranquil suburban oasis. It’s easy to forget the world – or to forget how close you are to shopping, transportation, and schools. A home with this combination of charm, location, and unbeatable price won’t last long.
