Welcome to 96 Fairfield Road in Clifton
Located in the Montclair Heights section of Clifton, about a mile from Upper Montclair, sits 96 Fairfield Road. This home is on the market for the first time since the original house was renovated in 2005. The views alone make this house truly one of a kind, as you can see spectacular views from most rooms in the house.
Original Stonework + High Ceilings Abound
The entrance hall is accented with the original stone interior archway. French doors lead from the great room to the elegant chef’s kitchen, featuring a large center island for seating and ample space for entertaining. The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and cupboard-front refrigerator door panels.
Adjacent to the kitchen sits the breakfast room which highlights the high ceilings and hardwood floors found throughout the home. The first floor also provides access to the outdoor patio which overlooks 2+ acres of landscaped grounds, offering privacy while not limiting the view.
Skyline Views from the Second Floor
The second floor houses the primary suite which includes two walk-in closets, an ensuite bathroom with soaking tub, and views of New York City. All four bedrooms located on the second floor have ensuite bathrooms. There is an additional in-law suite complete with living room and kitchen.
The Game Room + Carriage House
The third floor of the main house features a 28-foot by 35-foot game room perfect for billiards, a media area, crawl space access, and skyline views. Behind the main house sits the spacious carriage house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Built in 1985, the carriage house has a separate driveway, central A/C, and a two-car garage — an ideal setup for comfortably hosting guests. Utilities are billed separately from the main house which means it could also be an opportunity for additional income.
While the property is expansive and private with more than 2.5 acres, it is conveniently located to major highways, providing easy access to all that Northern New Jersey and New York City have to offer. In under 20 minutes you can easily drive to the MetLife Stadium, Meadowlands Racetrack, or New York City.
