Location: Forked River, N.J.
One of the oldest homes in Forked River, New Jersey, just hit the market, a colorful Queen Anne Victorian that retains a high level of (very florid) historic charm, despite a recent renovation that gave it what looks like one of the newest kitchens in Forked River, New Jersey. Dating back to 1892, the Mary Canis House is now offered at $849,900.
Set overlooking the north branch of the Forked River—boat slips, we're told, are available at an adjacent marina—the home has 16 rooms, including six bedrooms, four baths and an office. There are four original fireplaces, and a very cool third-floor common area with wood paneling.
The total square footage is 4,088, situated on three quarters of an acre, with a heated pool out back.
