Description

Totally unique estate property at an affordable price in the bustling, world-class technology and health corridor that links Philadelphia and New York. A house and glorious grounds start with a private setting created by significant shrubbery on a beautiful two acre lot in Hightstown that slopes dramatically from North Academy Street to Rocky Brook in a series of terraces. The original portion of the house dates to c1889 with significant additions in c1900 and c1980. A slate roof, not more than five years old, covers the entire structure. All the old electrical wiring has been replaced and updated. All the windows have been replaced with custom made wooden Pella windows. The gas boiler and the gas hot water heater were replaced in January 2016. The first floor rooms feature finely crafted oak parquet flooring. Principal rooms include a bright, sunny entry room, added about 1907, a dining room large enough for two sideboards, two living/sitting rooms, the kitchen, great room and library/bedroom. The kitchen's former wood-burning cook stove has been expertly converted to a gas cook top and oven. This room also features a hidden dishwasher, marble sink surrounds, marble counter top, butcher block island, wall oven and fascinating cabinetry re-purposed from a nineteenth century Scottish apothecary. The back of the house contains a great room that has a seventeen foot ceiling and private library, or additional bedroom. The double doors, surmounted by a fanlight, originally graced Point Breeze, the former home of Joseph Bonaparte in Bordentown. They lead onto a portico with four sixteen foot fluted columns and down into the gardens below. There are three good sized bedrooms on the second floor and a bonus room and two studio spaces on the third floor.
