A deceptively large home hit the market in Hammonton.


Located at 23 Marlyn Ave., this brick rancher features five bedrooms, three bathrooms and three full kitchens, as well as plenty of space to accommodate families of all sizes.


Visitors to the house will find themselves making their entrance through the back door, which leads into the first-floor kitchen. Here, classic, country-style wood cabinetry abounds, accented by white countertops. This kitchen also features several mounted appliances—like a microwave and a toaster oven—and a built-in, roll-top breadbox.


The doorway to the left of the kitchen leads visitors to the home’s formal dining room, which offers space to accommodate guests for every occasion.


From here, visitors have access to the Florida room. This well-lit area has windows on all sides, allowing for sunlight to flood the area, and includes a gorgeous white-tile floor.


The dining room also allows entrance into the living room, which sits at the front of the house. This chamber is illuminated by a large bay window which overlooks the front of the property. Here also is a wood fireplace with a gorgeous, mid-century modern hearth.


The living room leads to the home’s foyer—and also access to the front door—which is decorated with gorgeous hardwood floors (which run the length of the first floor, even under carpet) and other wood accents. This is where the hallway to the first-floor sleeping quarters may be found.


The first of these rooms is outfitted with built-in bookshelves; the room itself works either as a bedroom or as an office.


The room next to it is of a similar size, and can also double as an office or a den. The master bedroom, also to be found in this hallway, boasts a large window and plenty of closet space.


At the end of this hallway is the first floor’s bathroom, which is decorated with a beautiful, single-sink vanity and has a stand-up shower, surrounded by tile, separate from its bathtub.


The second story of the house is where the second full kitchen may be found—in the center of the home’s in-law suite. This suite is of an impressive size and can accommodate all manner of gatherings and parties.


The second floor is also where the remaining two bedchambers may be found, along with an extraordinary amount of storage space which runs the entire length of the house.


Additionally, the second bathroom may be found on this floor, which is decorated with subway tiles on the wall and mosaic tiles on the floor.


In addition to the two main floors, the house has a full, partially finished basement, where the third bathroom—with pedestal sink and stand-alone shower—may be found. The third full kitchen is here, and is perfect for canning or for auxiliary facilities for large holiday meals.


Also to be found in the basement is a full workbench, as well as a fully-finished room that is perfect for a private den or quiet office.


This home sits on a respectably sized lot with a fully paved driveway and a well-cared-for yard. It is a beauty to behold, both inside and out.


Currently under contract, the house is listed for $307,000 through Joanne Murphy of Keller Williams Atlantic Shore. For more information, call (609) 703-8926.
