Cozy house on Fernwood Drive
A charming single-family house has recently been listed in Hammonton.
Located at 125 Fernwood Dr., this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom home is just waiting for the right family to come along.
With one walk through the front door, visitors can immediately see the potential that awaits them.
The front door opens into a small foyer. To the right is a coat closet; to the left, separated by a half-wall, is the living room.
The living room is a comfortable space, large enough to spread out but cozy enough for family closeness. The jewel of the room is the large bay window overlooking the front of the property, which features an impressive window ledge that can serve as a centered display piece or—with a simple cushion addition—a bench seat.
Behind the living room is the dining room. Here, prospective homebuyers are faced with a bevy of use choices, as the room provides ample space for tables of all sizes, or it can double as both an informal dining area and office space.
To the rear of the dining room is a door that leads to an impressive deck porch on the back of the house, complete with vaulted ceilings and skylights.
This area is currently screened-in, but buyers may want to consider the addition of windows to convert this to a Florida room.
The kitchen is to the right of the dining room. Here, the features include a newer refrigerator as well as a surprising amount of cabinet and counter space, laid out in such a way as to make it all easily accessible to whomever is creating culinary delights.
Behind the kitchen is the laundry room; the washer and dryer will be included with the sale of the home.
The next room is the house’s half-bathroom, outfitted in delightfully retro tile.
Accessible from the other side of the bathroom is the first of the home’s three bedrooms.
This is the biggest of three, and is currently utilized as the master bedroom. It has plenty of natural illumination from windows on two exterior walls, as well as a large closet.
The other door of the bedroom leads to a hallway where the rest of the bedrooms may be found.
The first, across from the master, is well-suited for a teenager. Additionally, this room boasts the hardwood floors that are present under the rest of the home’s carpeted floors, which can be restored to their original glory with a little bit of work.
Continuing down the hallway, visitors will find a linen closet to the right, next to the full bathroom.
This bathroom room features an oversized counter, soothing blue tile, and a shower/bathtub combo in a frosted glass enclosure.
Across from the bathroom is the third bedroom, which is the smallest of the three, perfect for a young child. This room may also be repurposed for a craft room or office, if the new buyer so wishes.
The home also has a full basement. Half of it is unfinished, suitable for storage, but the other half is completely finished and would make a great space for a den or rec room.
This house is the perfect size for a younger family just getting started, or for anyone looking to downsize.
Currently under contract, the home is priced at $239,900, and is available through Ricky Mauriello of Re/MAX Community-Williamstown. For more information, call (856) 318-2313.
