COMING SOON Historic 3BR Cape Cod On 4 Plus Idyllic Acres In Sparta
Fall in love with this charming 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Cape Cod, tucked away up a private drive on 4.54 picturesque acres, surrounded by majestic trees and fun trails. Sparta’s 135 Sterling Hill Road is the home you’ve been seeking!
According to local lore, this 1913 character-filled gem was built for nearby Sterling Hill Mine’s head miner. You’ll be transported back to a simpler time when gathering together in front of the rustic, decorative stone fireplace in the family room, or curling up with a good book in the 2nd floor dormer reading nook.
The newly-restored 2-stall barn offers space for storing quads or dirt bikes to be used on the beautiful property’s trails, or could be renovated into a future art studio or private getaway zone. The property is zoned for horses and offers a perfect home for them, both in terms of the lovely land and the barn.
An oversized, detached 2-car garage means plenty of parking and work/storage space, and the large basement offers additional storage space.
This home lies within easy driving distance from Sparta's town center, meaning dining and entertainment options abound, and you'll be just a few minutes from the route 15 commuting corridor. New York City is only a little over an hour away by car. NYC Bus is available from Sparta. Newark Airport and the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania average about an hour's drive as well. And don't forget the nearest ski slopes and water parks are only 20-30 minutes away in Vernon!
Like hiking? Just 15 minutes away, the 1400-acre Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management area offers numerous trails for all levels of hiking, as well as Ryker Lake for kayaking, fishing and birding. Kittatinny Valley State Park lies only 11.4 miles away, boasting 5.2 miles of hiking trails with views of glacial lakes, limestone outcroppings and former railroads. Additionally, Kittatinny's Lake Aeroflex and Gardner's Pond are excellent for fishing and boating.
Sparta's fantastic school system provides wonderful educational opportunities, and Sparta Middle School and Sparta High School lie a mere 5-minute drive away. As one of 2018's top 100 safest towns in America (according to Safewise), Sparta offers peace of mind as well.
