hidden under stair compartment in stratford nj

This beautifully renovated living room in Stratford, NJ features a whimsical secret — pulling down on the hardcover copy of The Lord of the Rings turns the bookshelf into a closet door, leading to an under-the-stairs storage space (or hiding place). Of course, extraordinary attention to detail was paid to the accompanying trimwork, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and window nook.
