336 S Atlantic: Bloomfield
It would take us days to describe the architectural prowess of this early–20th-century Victorian. Not only because it’s a seven-bed, 4 1/2-bath colossus of a house — but frankly, there isn’t much (if anything) to dislike about the place. And believe us: We tried to find something to dislike. It’s our job to. But here, the task is largely impossible. Built in 1902 and balanced with traditional charm and modern upgrades alike, 336 S Atlantic is the closest we’ve ever been to an actualized daydream. (We’re obsessed with real estate, remember?)
Immediately apparent is how much the home’s primary designer adored wooden architecture. From glass-paneled pocket doors and inlaid flooring to fireplace mantels, wainscoting, and bay windows, that original woodwork lends itself to opulence and rich character. Wood accents are also prominent in the gourmet kitchen, where 42-inch wall cabinets come complete with raised crown molding. The remodeled room holds granite countertops, porcelain flooring, directional lighting, and new stainless appliances (the latter of which includes a 36-inch pro-style gas range).
