Own a piece of Allendale History! This 1906 colonial with a large front porch and family room addition sits on 0.58 acre of private property just a few blocks from the Celery Farm. This home underwent a top-down renovation and update in 2011. New, gourmet kitchen features a Wolf gas range and commercial-grade ventilation, stainless steel appliances by Bosch and KitchenAid, glass backsplash tile, european cabinetry, and recessed LED lighting. The family room addition features exposed beams and wide planked floors made from reclaimed barn wood, a vaulted ceiling, and a gorgeous fireplace. Large living room and formal dining room feature new flooring and original chestnut wood work. A charming library with built-in cabinetry and bench seat, and a full bath are both adjacent to the living room.
The upstairs features 3 bedrooms, including a large master bedroom, all with ample closet space. A spa-like remodeled bathroom features a whirlpool tub, dual sinks, glass tile, and european vanity.
The back yard features a large outdoor living space, including a 600 square foot hardscape patio and a 5-person spa under a pergola.
The 1880 barn was expanded with a garage addition in 1987 making it's capacity 3+ cars. It is heated with propane and air-conditioned with a window unit. Currently used as a professional photographer's studio, this huge, vaulted space could easily and economically be converted into a multi-bedroom guest house, in-law's suite, or spacious home office.

Fully updated 200 amp. electrical panel. 2014 property taxes were $11,660.
