The St. Cloud neighborhood of West Orange, NJ is a small area sandwiched between the Essex County Country Club and the South Mountain Reservation. Though it’s considered affluent, the homes here are still relatively affordable, even though it’s only an hour train ride from Manhattan. This classic Victorian home sits on a full acre and has five bedrooms, a salt-water swimming pool, a custom play area, and a backyard cottage. It’s on the market for $745,000.

In addition to all the yard space, there’s a spacious side porch.

The first entry foyer has a convenient built-in window seat flanked by closets, while the second foyer is more formal.

The living room sits behind the street-facing bay window and shares a double-sided fireplace with the dining room. Both rooms feature gorgeous moldings and ceiling medallions and open to the porch.

Off the dining room is a charming office with another bay window.

The kitchen is at the rear of the home. It’s been designed with tons of open shelving, but this could easily be converted to cabinetry for someone looking for more discreet organization. There’s a vented range and a potbelly stove.

The second floor has three bedrooms, including the primary bedroom suite, which has a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom. There’s another full bathroom in the hall.

There are two more bedrooms and another full bathroom on the third floor.

Out back, a large patio is perfect for outdoor entertaining. It overlooks the raised salt-water pool.

A custom play area and campsite are perfect for kids, and there are also two raised beds to grow your own garden. Throughout the property, you’ll find organic apples, cherries, berries, and grapes.

As the listing notes, the “fully conditioned out-building” would work great “as a guest house or home office.”

As mentioned, the home is near the Essex County Country Club and the South Mountain Reservation, where you’ll also find the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo, Rock Spring Golf Club, Treetop Adventure Course, West Orange Tennis Club, and Greenwood Gardens.
