Sensitive interior renovations earlier this year have reconnected the oldest section of the house with the rest of the residence for a more complete flow of spaces. The former farm worker apartment is now a family room with brand new kitchen to support entertaining or for use by overnight guests. This elegant, updated farmhouse in Cream Ridge is truly something special. The prosperity of past generations is evident in the grandness of the entrance hall and the next owners will enjoy farmland vistas, on this manageable 6 acre parcel. Usher in guests from a wide porch with a sky blue ceiling into a tall, welcoming center hall. Unusual is the sense of openness found in the living and dining rooms which also feature very large windows for the date of construction. Heritage features are found throughout the house which evolved over time. Of particular note are the 12 over 12 windows, five fireplaces, wide plank floors and very handsome mill-work. Over time, exquisite additions, such as high quality tile add to the charm. This backdrop for future parties can only suggest the family and community celebrations that must have taken place in this remarkable house. Climb the deep treads of the original staircase to a study with a patterned tin ceiling, three spacious bedrooms, and two baths - one with a claw-foot tub. The recently redone kitchen captures the spirit of old and new with handhewn beams, exposed brick, and every modern amenity, plus a nearby half bath and the sunniest mudroom. From the recently reconnected family room in the oldest section of the house two more bedrooms, a loft, laundry and another full bath are accessible. A crop of charming outbuildings complete the picture: garden shed, ice house, garage, and two barns - one ripe for transformation. Horses, organic gardening, Christmas tree farming are just some of the opportunities on the grounds and nearby, a walking, riding, jogging trail on an old rail-bed adds to the country lifestyle. Two laundry rooms, two kitchens, whole house generator, and several newly outfitted closets to dispel the notion that old houses don't have enough wardrobe space for a modern lifestyle.
