Updated 1700s Tavern Promises 'Charm Personified'

Now offered for $1.175M, the Andrew Mershon Tavern of Titusville, New Jersey, was a "famous stop" for George Washington's Continental Army on the way to the Battle of Trenton, at least according to a listing from this spring, when the historic home was asking just $795K. Original details still on display in the 2,600-square-foot four-bedroom include what the current listing calls "random pine flooring" (surely meaning "random width"), five fireplaces with original mantles, exposed stone walls, and a "great tavern room" with beamed ceilings and a "walk-in fireplace," currently decorated with a few antique guns and a portrait of Ol' Tommy Jefferson. The remodeled kitchen looks like one of the biggest departures from the space's original look, but it's also a real charmer, with Dutch doors and a cast-iron baking oven. The 8-acre plot it sits on also includes a "spacious heated artist studio" and a three-car garage, but there's also an additional 70 acres of adjacent "preserved farmland" up for grabs.
