One of Hammonton’s beautiful homes has recently come onto the market.


Located at 309 Central Ave., this gem offers both space and convenience.


Originally constructed as a single-family home, the house is currently configured with separately metered upstairs and downstairs living units, but can be restored to its original intent with a small amount of work on the part of its new owners.


Both areas are accessible through convenient entrances on the front porch, which runs the length of the front of the house—and features a beautiful tile floor as well as columns and a wrought-iron railing.


The downstairs area is through the door on the right of the porch.


Upon entering, prospective buyers walk into a small foyer, with a window overlooking the side of the property.


To the left is the living room, spacious enough to entertain yet cozy enough to be comfortable.


A small hallway leads to the rest of the floor’s living space. To the right is a full bathroom, with a gorgeous tile floor and a sink/vanity partitioned off from the rest of the room for privacy.


Next to the bathroom is a chamber, with a triple window that allows for natural illumination, that would make a great office.


The left of the hallway affords entrance to two bedrooms.


The first is a perfect size for a child’s room or a guest room. The second serves as the master bedroom with a large closet and plenty of nooks for storage or decor.


The kitchen lies at the end of the hallway. Here, light woodgrain cabinets complement the granite countertops and are accented by black appliances. The kitchen also has an appealing tile floor, which contrasts the hardwood-like laminate flooring throughout the rest of the rooms.


The basement is also accessible from the hallway, and has ample opportunities for storage, as well as two recently replaced water heaters. This is also where the washer and dryer may be found, as well as an egress through Bilco doors.


Entrance to the second floor’s living area is available through the door on the left of the front porch. A step through that door leads to a tiled landing—with coat closet—and a carpeted stairwell with a stunning wood bannister and newel post.


That carpeting continues throughout most of the second story, save for the kitchen at the top of the stairs. Here, tile floors abound, which are complemented by the laminate countertops and an abundance of cabinet space. There is also ample room to accommodate an eating area.


The hallway next to the kitchen leads to a great room at the front of the house, which could easily serve as a large bedroom or as a common room.


A full bathroom is at the end of the hallway, as is access to an area that could easily serve as a living room or play area.


Behind this room is another large bedroom, complete with two separate closets and windows on two adjoining walls.


Additionally, the home has a large backyard, along with a driveway is accessible from both Central Avenue and Grape Street.


This house is well-priced at $359,800, and is listed through Patricia Chiu of Balsley-Losco Realtors. For more information, call (609) 839-1311.
