42 Highland Ave., Montclair, NJ, 07042 | Virtual Tour | BHHS New Jersey Properties – Montclair (vht.com)

Set high above a sweeping yard on one of Montclair’s most coveted streets, 42 Highland offers gorgeous grounds including a recent in-ground pool, extensive patio with media hook-ups, a hot tub and wooded areas as well.  With vast views towards NYC, it’s fitting the property’s name is Buena Vista.

Inside, the large-scale rooms make indoor living extra comfortable. At approximately 4300 square feet this home feels even larger due to the high ceilings. The grand foyer entrance brings you and your guests into the home, but more likely you’ll enter from the expanded driveway into a perfectly designed mudroom with a powder room and sitting room. To the right is a formal dining room, separated by French doors from the foyer, which in turn lead to a window-enclosed office, also separated by French doors, and with access to the butler’s pantry and kitchen. 

To the left enter the extensive formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, the large windows bringing in great light, and views to the backyard. Calmness abounds!

The kitchen – expansive with plenty of storage, and open to the extra-large family room with access to the outdoors. Sit together at the custom center island and watch the family chef do their thing! Enjoy informal dining, games, homework in the informal dining area (if you so choose,) or spread out for movie night. 

From the family room, overflow onto the vast patio where the fun continues with an outdoor tv, bbq cooking, fire pit, pool and hot tub. The rear yard is fully fenced, and there is extra property behind the fence, offering security and privacy. Recent improvements include a major restructuring of the rear property including drainage, hardscaping including terracing, the addition of the in-ground pool, hot tub, and expansion of the driveway and patio.

Plenty of spacious bedrooms (5!) and several office spaces for spreading out round out the second and third floors. Bathrooms have been renovated. The primary bedroom is extra-large with plenty of closet space. The third floor can be bedroom spaces, a playroom/office, extra storage, meditation room, or whatever your heart desires!

The basement is finished with an additional entertainment/play area, gym zone, powder room, laundry, storage, mechanical room and a work room with work bench. Access to the garage is through the basement. These owners use the garage space as their cross-fit gym – 2 cars fit, tandem-style.
