250 Upper Mountain Avenue in Montclair
A new listing by The Lane Team is slated to hit the market soon. Located at 250 Upper Mountain Avenue in Montclair, the home features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms spread across 4,037 square feet. This contemporary home was designed by noted architect Rolf Myllar and built in 1963. The dramatic interiors show off the contemporary architecture with an open concept living room and extensive windows throughout for unparalleled natural light.
The Main Floor
The entryway features soaring ceilings with a skylight above the stairwell. The main living space has floor-to-ceiling windows and a wood burning fireplace, which is perfect for a cozy vibe during the colder months. The modern, eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, an oversized island, and is situated next to the breakfast area with a one-of-a-kind curved wall of windows and fireplace.
The rest of the first floor provides additional living space, including a family room with sliding glass doors; an office with custom built-ins; and a formal dining room that leads out to a large patio, landscaped backyard, and stunning in-ground pool.
On the second floor, the spacious primary suite features a large closet and primary ensuite bathroom. Three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms provide plenty of space for more family members or guests — or both.
This property is situated between Upper Montclair Village and Watchung Plaza, which houses must-have shops, boutiques, and restaurants. Nearby parks include both Edgemont and Anderson Parks, just a 10-minute walk away. The house is a 2-minute drive or 5 minute walk from the Upper Montclair train station with direct service to Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan.
“We love the cosmopolitan feel of Montclair with its world-class restaurants, parks, and easy transportation to NYC by train or bus,” Chris Lane, team leader at The Lane Team, told The Montclair Girl. “Montclair is a welcoming community with a diverse population whose interests encompass the arts, including music and theater — all in close proximity to a vibrant downtown.”
