Single Family Home

In-town living in one of the Princeton area's most charming places, Hopewell Borough! This 1900 Colonial was fully rehabbed for its 100th birthday in 2000. The main floor was gutted down to the studs and all interior walls removed, giving you the best of both worlds: a well built historic house with a modern open floor plan and all updated systems. The windows and doors, electrical and plumbing, kitchen and baths, floors and trim were all replaced at that time, and the siding was replaced with incredible Hardieplank- lap siding, a concrete material that mimics the feel of wood and is essentially maintenance-free, as it requires painting only twice a century! The kitchen features professional grade appliances and high end fixtures. Master bedroom suite includes en suite bath, storage alcove, and Romeo and Juliet balcony overlooking the double lot with huge backyard. Large modern barn (2000), complete with heat/air/electric and plumbed for a bath or kitchenette, can be used as office, play or guest space, and adds a ton of functionality to this property. No garage, but off-street parking for 3+ vehicles. The hardwood floors need refinishing and the house needs a little TLC, but the potential here is huge. Enjoy what today's buyers want most: walkability and community! From this location, walk or bike to all of Hopewell's amazing shops, restaurants, parks, houses of worship, and the incredible Brick Farm Market. Students also walk to the excellent elementary school along safe streets protected by crossing guards. Join the two thousand people who know the secret of beautiful Hopewell Borough. Nestled two miles from the Sourland Mountains, this idyllic location is just 15 minutes to downtown Princeton, 20 minutes to Lambertville/New Hope, 25 minutes to Trenton or the Princeton Junction train station, one hour to the Jersey Shore at Belmar, less than an hour to Philly, and less than 90 minutes to NYC. Please note this is a short sale requiring third party approval. The process has been started.
