With over 18 acres, property offers privacy and 12,000 square feet of living space
The dead of winter hides the exterior beauty and charm of many properties, but not the home at 23 Warwick Road in Warwick Township.
Set on over 18 acres, the property is surrounded by tall trees that offer not only privacy but also a window on the seasons.
“Every season is special here,” says the property owner. “There’s no way to see us from the road. It’s such a nice private lot.”
In the summer, there’s the in-ground gunite pool, multiple shaded patios and a private tennis court. In the winter, a hill from the pool to a field below the tennis courts offers the perfect spot for sledding and snowboarding.
For buyers who want to embrace all seasons, the property is now for sale. Listing agent is Anne Lusk of Lusk and Associates-Sotheby’s International Realty.
The home is large enough to entertain a crowd, but filled with special places to enjoy quiet moments. Its 12,000-plus square feet of living space includes an in-law quarters and finished basement.
There are a total of five bedrooms, five full and five half baths. The current owners added a second floor featuring three bedrooms, each with a private bath. A first-floor master bedroom is more like a penthouse suite, with walk-in closet and attached master bath with Hydromax jetted tub, stall shower and dual vanities.
The fifth bedroom is part of the in-law quarters above the attached three-car garage that also includes its own family room with wood burning stove, living area, kitchen, full bath, powder room and space for a washer and dryer.
In the main home, the spacious kitchen includes an 11-foot island with granite countertop, a pass-through window into the dining room and a Viking gas cooktop with vent.
“Every single shelf in the kitchen pulls out like a drawer,” the owner says. “You’re not down on your hands and knees trying to get a piece of Tupperware out of the back.”
Hardwood floors lead from the kitchen to a family room with wood burning fireplace, a professional office with French doors and a sunroom lined with a window seat to relax and take in the view.
“It’s just an inviting spot,” the owner says, recalling the words of a friend: “If you gave me a hot plate, I could live in that room.”
The first floor also includes a dining room with window seat, a living room and a spacious craft room with plenty of shelving and a wall of built-in, glass-front display cases with lighting.
The finished basement features a theater room with row seating, living room and game room.
A landing between the main floor and the basement offers the perfect spot for a sunny little seating area. “There’s just lots of little spaces, special ups and downs that I’ve always been grateful for,” the owner says.
It’s not surprising then that, despite all the home has to offer, the owner’s favorite room is another convenient little space — the powder room in the garage that connects to the backyard.
“When the kids would go out sledding, they would cut through that room and take off their wet clothes in the garage,” she says. “It’s warm and heated.”
The property also has a detached four-car garage and a bomb shelter that the owners use for storage.
The home is in the Warwick School District. It is priced at $1,495,000. . Interested pre-approved buyers should contact Anne Lusk at 271-9339 or 291-9101 for an appointment.
