Welcome to this east coast inspired traditional Colonial home in the heart of Broadview. There are so many things we think you will love about this home. A traditional hallmark of Colonial homes is the symmetry with the front door always in the middle of the home. Upon entering you will notice how warm and welcoming the home feels. You can picture hosting large holiday parties in the spacious living room or spending quiet evenings in, chatting by the wood-burning fireplace. The living room enjoys plenty of natural light through both West and East facing windows. Like most traditional homes, the back yard is an extension of the home. You’ll appreciate easy access to the covered patio and private back yard.
We all know that people tend to congregate in the kitchen. They are more than just the room where we prepare culinary masterpieces. The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s often where we help kids with homework, pay bills, or work on craft projects. This spacious, well-designed kitchen will fill all of those needs and more. Whether you are a novice, a top chef, or can order take-out like a pro, meal prep will be a breeze. The roomy kitchen features a large cook island, plenty of storage and slab granite counters. Summer is upon us, which means it is barbecue season. You have two areas to set up the grill and it’s accoutrements. Summer entertaining will be a delight. Your guests will appreciate the numerous options for hanging out depending on their mood. The covered patio offers cover from the sun or rain. The fire pit is the perfect spot to cap off the evening, making smores, enjoying one another’s company and watching the last embers die down.
You will love the upper level of the home which features four bedrooms and two full baths. The layout is ideal. There are three spacious bedrooms, two with built-ins and full bath on one end. The north end contains the spacious primary bedroom. This will be a welcome retreat at the end of the day. This gracious room features a wood-burning fireplace, full bath, dual closets and private deck overlooking the back yard.
Have we mentioned how much we love the layout of this home? The lower level is the icing on the cake. You won’t want to miss the lower level of the home. There is a spacious family room that would make a perfect media space plus room for a game table. Your overnight guests will appreciate the privacy of the lower level 5th bedroom (non-conforming) with nearby ¾ bath. Not sure where to store everything? Check out the small room off of the family room. It has built-in cabinets for storage. The oversized two car garage can fit two cars plus room left over for other toys.

Just a few short steps from this home is Dunn Gardens. This is a privately owned 7.5-acre property composed of the remaining acreage of the estate of Arthur G. Dunn Sr., who made his fortune in the fish cannery business. Dunn bought the property in 1914 as a summer get-a-way for his family, and contracted the landscaping to the Olmsted Brothers. Upon his death, the property was inherited by his children. His son Edward B. Dunn provided for the care of his share of the estate in his will. A trust was created two years after his death to oversee the entire property. Dunn Gardens were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 15, 1994, and are open for special public events and docent-led guided tours April through July, and from September through October.
