A shining example of early 20th century, classic Hammonton architecture has recently been listed.


This beautiful home, located at 97 S. Packard St., was built in 1935 and underwent extensive renovations in 2014 that maintained the traditional style of the house while updating its look for the modern era.


With one step across the threshold, the elegant mix of vintage and new becomes immediately evident.


Walking through the front door brings prospective owners into the living room, where subdued blue-gray walls are accented by white ceiling and molding, all of which serve to highlight the room’s beautiful laminate floors.


To the left of the front door lies the entrance to the Florida room. Here, the original hardwood flooring really stands out against the white walls and a gorgeous shiplap accent wall.


The living room—and its decor—lead directly into the dining room behind it. Here there is ample room for intimate meal gatherings, as well as a separate bar-style counter overlooking a window into the kitchen.


The kitchen itself has gorgeous tile floors, stainless steel appliances—including a glass cooktop stove—and a pretty backsplash which coordinates perfectly with the floors and cabinets.


Next to the kitchen is a utility room, as well as a small hallway which leads to the downstairs powder room—which features wainscoting on the walls, tile floors and a unique side-fauceted sink.


The second floor of the house is accessible through the living room via a beautiful wooden stairwell.


At the top of the landing, visitors are immediately struck by the prevalence of original hardwood throughout the second floor, as well as matching molding and accents that really bring out the antique charm of the home.


The first room to the left currently serves as a bedroom. Though there is no closet here, one could easily be added next to the entrance to the full attic, which is accessible here.


The master bedroom lies directly next to this one. This is a larger chamber than the previous one, with soothing light blue walls that truly pop with the ample natural light that the room enjoys.


The third bedroom is just down the hall from the master bedroom. This is slightly smaller than the previous two, and would be perfect as either a child’s bedroom or a study.


The home’s full bathroom is across the hall from that third bedroom. The tilework on both the floors and the walls is truly something to see, and is quite complementary with the beautiful pedestal sink.


This home has a lot to offer. The current owner switched to gas several years ago, and the house features dual zone central air conditioning.


Additionally, the house sits on a surprisingly deep lot; the dimensions measure 50 feet wide by 271 feet deep, which allows for plenty of opportunities for leisure and recreation. There is also a detached garage which has been outfitted as an outdoor party room, complete with a bar, as well as landscaping that simply must be seen.


This home, which is currently under contract, offers both space and comfort, as well as charm and style—and it is a bargain at $269,000. It is listed through Dave Birnbaum of Re/Max Community Williamstown. For more information, call (856) 524-2927.
