About 1940 Gouldin Road
A refined and secluded mid-century modern retreat in Montclair’s highly sought-after Thornhill district, this 1948-built home exudes style and charm with its open floor plan and graceful transitions to generous outdoor spaces for box gardens, BBQs and entertaining. 1940 Gouldin Road's living room boasts original redwood paneling surrounding a working fireplace while the tall picture windows invite in the outdoors along with the perfect perch to enjoy the views, or read a book. The dining room connects to the large open kitchen with stainless steel appliances. All three rooms provide access to the deck and yard spaces that surround the home. Three bedrooms and one and a half baths fill out the rest of the main floor. Downstairs, in the spacious rumpus room with a fireplace, built-in desks and storage, see if you can access the secret room behind the bookcase under the stairs. Laundry, a fourth bedroom, and a second full bath fill out the lower floor plan. This is a truly unique home that merits serious consideration.
