The listing for the circa 1867 Thomas Watlington house in Ridgewood, New Jersey’s Prospect Street Historic District calls it “unforgettable,” and it’s certainly not one you’d pass by without taking note. The six-bedroom Second Empire style home at 226 Prospect Street, on the market for $1.825 million, is filled with historic details. But the home’s wide, gracious porches, grand port-cocheres, in-ground heated pool and 3-car garage make it especially well suited for enjoying everyday life.

An inviting wrap-around porch reminds us of a bygone era, but it has the kind of timeless appeal that’s perfect for warm-weather living and entertaining.

In addition to the many porches, an in-ground heated pool and a three-car garage make life easier in any season.

This iconic village home is a rare combination of nostalgia, livability and location. Ridgewood is about a 40 minute drive from Manhattan.
