Reminder: Highest and best offers for 324 Becker St., Highland Park, are requested by 5 pm today, May 9th. Part of a darling Town & Gown neighborhood situated between Donaldson Park, Rutgers University and the shops of Raritan Avenue, this vintage home was renovated in 2019 with dual priorities always top of mind: using of-the-moment materials to enhance, rather than compete, with the interior’s inherent charm and maximizing the usability of every last square inch. Both goals were achieved with aplomb! A built-in bench catches bags and fetching cement tile stands up to wet shoes in the entry, allowing the living room ahead to remain clean and clutter-free. A wide doorway gives the dining room an open feel and shows off a stained glass window handsomely framed in natural wood. White shaker cabinetry, softly veined Quartz, handmade tile and a farmhouse sink quietly complement the playfully patterned kitchen floor. A coffee station and powder room are perfectly tucked into an alcove. Upstairs, a full bath serving 3 corner bedrooms is equally fresh and stylish. Just completed, the finished basement is the newest improvement on the list. Whether used for projects, play or work, this multi-purpose level is graced with a surprising amount of natural light and extra storage. Of course, the super-cute detached garage handles any overflow. A maintenance-free deck above the fenced yard and driveway parking for two make this 100-year-old house the ideal base for a manageable, modern lifestyle.
