|July...a cooks dream, a family's hangout!|
By strengthening the lower structure, and adding a second level over the once decaying back porch, the owners expanded the second floor to allow a true master bedroom with an en suite. A large walk in closet completes the ensemble! The house grew in square footage without changing the footprint!
Extending the second floor has made all the difference in making this place exactly what buyers are looking for today.
And as mentioned before, this house is almost brand new, including the complete replacement (and removal) of an old oil-fired heating system and numerous radiators.
Duct work and venting were worked into the design to accommodate the new high efficiency gas heater and central air conditioning system. And, every rotting wooden window and sill have been replaced as well. Just doesn't get any better than this!

And as beautiful as it is on the inside, the best part, the very perfect part at the end of this renovation, is what is on the outside...Riverton, New Jersey.
Imagine having your morning coffee on the front porch as your neighbors walk by. Or, taking a short walk down to the river for an evening stroll.

But it is the 4th of July that brings it all home (pardon the pun). A town wide decorating contest sets the tone with flags and bunting waving in the summer breeze! The day starts with a 5K race, then continues with a parade, contests in the park, raft races on the river and go carting down Elm Terrace Lane. And parties galore. During a stroll through town yesterday, live music could be heard at every turn. This town celebrates it's presence with each page turn of the calendar. If you want to be part of it all, a stop at the "not so little"house anymore, is a must!
