Single Family Home

When historical houses showcase just the right amount of modern finishes and furnishings, suddenly a 250-year-old structure becomes very fresh. This c. 1765 manor house, carefully updated by its present owners, has just this aesthetic. Set on a tranquil three acres with two barns and country views, the property is located on a quiet lane a few minutes outside Frenchtown. The house balances a wealth of authentic details, including Flemish bond brick patterning, raised paneling, four fireplaces and gorgeous original wide-plank pine floors, with an array of well-designed updates.The paneled Living Room is gracious in scale and detail. The original 18th Century kitchen functions now as a lovely rustic family room with slate floors and large fireplace with beehive oven. The new kitchen has an upscale cottage feel with Carrara marble and stainless appliances. Upstairs are three bedrooms all with bucolic views. A newly installed patio provides lovely outdoor living and dining space and is the perfect vantage point for taking in the fancy latticework brick design on the gable end of the house. Enjoy long-distance views stretching across the river to Pennsylvania as well as verdant surroundings that include a private, grass airstrip. For those seeking workshop, garage, and party space, two barns await. The grounds and gardens are simple and may be expanded should a gardener wish. Enjoy easy access to New York City via I-78 or bus. The shops and restaurants of Frenchtown, Stockton, Lambertville are just minutes away. This characterful place is as plain or fancy as you wish and has much to offer in every season.
