3 beds | 2 baths | 0.2 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3547760


A mid-century home in Clark presents three bedrooms and two full baths on a large corner lot. This well-maintained residence awaits the next owners’ updates and personal touches. Highlights include refinished hardwood floors in most first level rooms, a freshly-painted interior, newer windows throughout most of the home and a first floor master bedroom and full bath. 

Natural light fills the entry, a tile-floored sun room with three walls of windows. This space offers a newer set of French doors opening to the spacious carpeted living room.  Recently-finished hardwood flooring is featured in the dining room, den and expansive first floor master bedroom. The paneled den could serve as an additional first floor bedroom with closet. In the master bedroom, a triple closet and access to a full bath with tiled floor and walls are notable design elements. Vintage features lend character to the kitchen with a full complement of appliances and door to the updated deck. 

Upstairs are two more generous bedrooms and a shared hall tile bathroom with stall shower. The unfinished basement provides laundry hook-ups and ample storage options.

This centrally located home is near shops, restaurants, Madison Avenue Park, RWJ University Hospital Rahway and the NJ Transit train station in Rahway for New York City-bound rail service on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line. Clark offers easy access to the Garden State Parkway as well as extensive shopping at Whole Foods, Target, Barnes & Noble and numerous restaurants and cafes including Starbucks.
