3 Sparta Open Houses Sunday From Colonial To Custom With Ponds Or Pools
Whether you're seeking a Sparta home that's custom, quaint or Colonial, Team Nest Builder has you covered! Check out one or all of our THREE OPEN HOUSES this Sunday May 5th, from 1-3pm:
368 West Mountain Road: Sophisticated Serenity in a Sparta 5BR Colonial with Stunning Pool Oasis
Welcome to a world of sophisticated serenity at the custom Colonial ! Experience a sense of peace as you pull in and pass the 3.75-acre property’s charming apple barn, then ride the wooded, winding drive past the English-style old stone walls and up to this eco-friendly 5BR, 4-bathroom beauty surrounded by mountains, forest and wildlife.
Around back, discover a private backyard oasis complete with a state-of-the-art fresh pool with a gently calming waterfall and two hot tubs, all surrounded by a gigantic, travertine patio with a large pergola. A high-efficiency pool heating system and electric cover combine for an extended swimming season, and the automatic, in-floor pool cleaning/chlorinating system makes maintenance a breeze.
The flat yard offers a great place to play. Sample the backyard apples, peaches, pears, cherries, plums, blackberries and raspberries, or warm up at the fire pit while you admire the wealth of blooming perennial flowers.
Follow the meticulously-landscaped walkway up to the mahogany front doors, and enter this all-brick home to find a grand, curved staircase leading to the upper hall gallery. Oak floors lead into the spacious great room where a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace commands attention.
Offering a perfect balance of beauty and functionality, the state-of-the-art kitchen contains an oversized, separate commercial fridge and freezer; 60-inch Wolf range with 2 convection ovens, 6 burners, griddle and grill topped with a massive, high extraction custom hood; soapstone countertops with integrated, large/deep soapstone sinks; a drawer fridge/freezer/ice maker; large pantry; massive island and seating peninsula; desk area; and roomy table area.
Relax in front of the brick living room fireplace, where wall-to-wall glass doors offer wonderful views of the pool and woods.
Entertaining’s a dream due to the flow of spacious first floor rooms and the opportunity for friends and family to spill out into the backyard through any of the six doors.
Upstairs, the stunning master suite contains a grand bedroom, sitting room, and a luxurious marble master bathroom. The heated, non-slip, sand-blasted marble floor welcomes you into a zero barrier shower built for 2, or, if you prefer, sink into the free-standing soaking tub under a gleaming chandelier. Separate vanities, each with a lighted makeup mirror, offer the personal space you desire.
Downstairs, the basement is studded-out for a full bath with shower, rec room, home theater, wine cellar, and a gym.
7 Milton Road: Simple Pleasures in a 5BR Sparta Slice of Heaven
If you dream of lazy summer days relaxing near your own brook-fed pond, or hiking historic tree-lined trails overlooking your own Sparta home, 7 Milton Road is ready to make your dream a reality!
Nature surrounds this 1st-time offering, custom 5BR, 2-bathroom home on 6.46 pristine acres. As you enter, you’ll cross a bridge over a bubbling brook streaming down the mountain and feeding past a pretty gazebo into the private, brook trout-stocked pond--jump in a canoe and catch dinner! Towering red spruce and natural rock formations surround the property, providing beauty and privacy. Plentiful cords of wood mean you’ll be cozying up around a crackling fireplace after sledding down the property’s surrounding hills or ice-skating on the pond when winter comes. The pump house efficiently provides water from the pond for lawn care and other outside uses.
Lovingly maintained by the original owner, the house features a lemonade front porch, very private back deck, and hardwood floors as shown and under carpeting in the living room, dining room and three bedrooms. A basement rec room completes your dream home.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
All 3 of these wonderful homes lie within easy driving distance from Sparta's town center, meaning dining and entertainment options abound, and you'll be just 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? The nearby 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 is also a short drive 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. Sparta Middle School and Sparta High School lie mere minutes away. As one of 2018's top 100 safest towns in America (according to Safewise), Sparta offers peace of mind as well.
