The space

Our home in South Orange, New Jersey is just a short ride from midtown Manhattan, New York City. It dates to the 1880's and is a key property on the National Registry of Historic Buildings. Although just a 25 minute train ride from Manhattan, NYC, the property has a private in-ground pool and garden area. Our home was recently redecorated in a mid-century modern style, while respecting and highlighting the Victorian architecture. See: https://houzz.com/projects/7088248 Our first floor includes a library, dining room, living room, kitchen, and formal entry hall. There is a large kitchen with a custom designed french Lacanche Range, marble countertops, a butlers pantry with wine fridge and an eat-in breakfast nook. The second floor has three bedrooms. The master bedroom with a queen bed and full bath is on this floor along with a queen guest room and a third bedroom with a queen size bed. There is also a recently renovated full hall bath. The third floor has three bedrooms, each with a full-size bed. The third floor also has its own bathroom, with a shower and claw-foot tub. The front of our house has a deep wrap around porch that is a wonderful spot to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. The porch is furnished with outdoor furniture and a double porch swing. The gardener will come once per week to care for the yard and a cleaning/maid service is available to assist you. The vehicle available for exchange includes a BMW x3. The outdoor garden area includes a private in-ground pool with chaise lounges, a dining area and an outdoor grill. We also have a basement level one bedroom apartment with a separate entrance at the rear of the house that can be made available for non-simultaneous exchanges.

Guest access

Our house is 3 stories, requiring quite a bit of stair climbing.

Notes

We also have a basement level one bedroom apartment with a separate entrance at the rear of the house that can be made available for non-simultaneous exchanges. We have quite a bit of flexibility in accommodations -- just ask!

Jerry and I (Jen) are both attorneys. Jerry works in a private firm handling various civil matters and I am employed as a Child Advocate. We have three older children who will travel with us on occasion. Generally, however, it will just be the two of us. If an exchange is local we prefer to travel with our well-behaved, non-shedding, never on the furniture doodle although if the circumstances don't allow him to join us we can arrange for him to stay with family or friends. Over the past 20 plus years we have had over 50 successful home exchanges (France, Ireland (3x), Spain, Costa Rica (2x), Arizona, West Virginia, Seattle, British Columbia (3X), Florida (4x), Martinique, Iceland, California (3x), Morocco, South Africa ... just to name a few). and are looking forward to the opportunity to arrange our next exchange soon. We have thoroughly enjoyed all of our past exchanges and are adventurous and resourceful travelers. We are always seeking our next exchange! We can always be tempted by unique and interesting locations! Please note that we prefer to travel during the fall, winter and spring as we enjoy spending our summer months at our home on Cape Cod.
