A charming rancher has recently come onto the market in Hammonton.


Located in a quiet neighborhood at 131 Fernwood Dr., this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers comfort and ease with virtually every step.


A step over the threshold brings prospective homebuyers into the foyer, and one is immediately struck by its red tile, which continues into a roomy coat closet to the right.


Immediately next to that closet is a doorway into the one-car garage, complete with automatic door opener.


The red tile melds seamlessly into two small white-tile steps—and matching hallway—which leads to the rest of the house.


To the left of the tiled hall is a longer, carpeted hallway. At the far end, on the right, lies a linen closet.


To the left is the first of the home’s two bedrooms. This is a rather large chamber, which is currently decorated in two lovely shades of green but which could easily be updated to suit the tastes of the new owners. Additionally, there is a large window overlooking the front of the property.


In this room are two doors. The far door leads to a spacious walk-in closet, which features a built-in shoe rack and a light which switches on automatically. The closer of the two doors opens into a private bathroom. Here, there is a sink encased in a large vanity, a shower stall, and both a commode and a bidet.


Outside of the bathroom, on the left of the hall, is the home’s laundry room, which also has its own sink.


Further down the hall, to the right, is another closet, and to the left is the second bathroom. This room features pink accents and a full tub.


At the end of the hallway is the home’s second bedroom. Immediately upon entering, one finds a closet on the right, as well as a built-in hidden ironing board to the right. There are shelves built into either side of the left wall, which would perfectly flank a bed of virtually any size.


A doorway at the far end of this bedroom leads visitors right into the home’s common area.

The current owners have this large area serving two separate purposes.


The part of the room nearest the bedroom is, at present, outfitted as a dining room. This respectably sized area can more than accommodate a full table and a china cabinet, and is perfect for family dinners and intimate dinner parties.


The rest of the room is ideal for a family room or living room, and it can hold furniture of various tastes and sizes. Among its features are a brick-lined fireplace, a tile-lined windowsill and vaulted ceilings with skylights that provide ample amounts of natural illumination.


To the left of this room is a sliding door that leads to porch enclosed with windows and a door leading to the backyard.


The kitchen is located next to the dining area, and is separated by a half-wall that also features a breakfast nook. The white-tile floor from the hallway continues into the kitchen, which also has a delightful amount of counter and cabinet space.


There is also a doorway that leads to the basement. Though unfinished, the basement—which runs the length of the back of the house and takes up half the width of the home—provides simple storage space and plenty of opportunities for work and play areas.


This home is full of promise for families of any size, and is suitably listed at $285,000 through Joyce Littlefield of Littlefield Real Estate.
