A mid century modern home close to NYC

Available late June (earlier is possible) until August 2021 is a sunny 3-bedroom colonial home built in 1927 (with original floors and windows!) located in Bloomfield NJ. Enjoy lots of space for working and studying remotely with easy access to NYC.

The house is meticulously maintained and is fully furnished featuring vintage mid century modern furniture and a beautiful upright Yamaha piano. It has two floors, with an additional unfinished (but VERY useable) basement and a small attic. The first floor has a full living room, dining room, half bath, and a spacious kitchen. The second floor has 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom.There is a front yard and a fenced back yard, with a sizable deck in the back and a large maple tree. Fire pit and charcoal grill are available to use.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a Kent Coffey Predicta Tallboy dresser, and a drop leaf table. The second bedroom has a Kura bed (can be converted to a loft bed that fits 2 children), dresser, and bookshelves. The third bedroom also has a Kura bed but can be used as an office. All rooms have spacious closets. 

The house is equipped with all amenities: heating, window ACs, stove, fridge, dishwasher, W/D, wifi, and a roku TV. Commute to NYC is accessible by car (20-30 minutes) or express NJT buses to Port Authority (a 20 minute ride) that are available at Allwood Rd bus stop across CVS. You can get to this bus stop on foot (19 minutes), local bus, or Uber/Lyft.
