Its premier setting on a cul de sac street is a short walk from Main Street and the Califon General Store.
Hinting at the high level of detail in the interior is an entrance foyer anchored by a unique staircase created with hand-glazed risers and porcelain tile steps edged by hand-forged wrought iron bannisters and railings. Flanking this space are the formal living and dining rooms. Special features in both rooms are hardwood floors, large windows and classic crown moldings. An outstanding focal point in the family room is the stone façade fireplace with a raised slate hearth and wood-burning insert. This sunny space also presents two circle top windows bordering the fireplace, vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors, crown moldings and a set of atrium glass doors to the rear deck.
The updated chef’s kitchen offers birch cabinetry, granite countertops, a tumbled marble backsplash, under-cabinet and recessed lighting and a bar seating at the peninsula.
