The Skinny: This 13-room Federal Colonial strikes an authentic chord in a state known for more for its gargantuan McMansions, smog, and turnpike than its history. Well, before New Jersey fell into the role of regional punching bag, homes like this were the norm. Built in 1817, this mansion is about as far from the Jersey Shore as one can get—psychologically, anyway. Equipped with a swimming pool, tennis court, English garden, and groves of fruit trees, this country manse goes even further upscale with the inclusion of a paddle tennis court. Really puts that GTL into perspective, doesn't it?
