Location: Lawrenceville, New Jersey
This quaint Dutch Colonial in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, was built in 1920 and is known as Maple Manor. Updated since then, the 2,068-square-foot residence boasts an array of original details and contemporary upgrades that make this historic home sing.
A white picket fence, verdant manicured lawn, and a portico entrance set the stage for the bright home, which features a center hallway with a hand-stained maple leaf medallion on the oak and fir floors. Off the entrance are a formal living room with fireplace, an adjacent family sun room (also with fireplace), a formal dining room that opens onto a screened porch by way of French doors, and a cute cottage-style eat-in kitchen with wainscoting.
Up the oak stairs are a master bedroom suite with a huge bathroom with clawfoot tub and separate shower, two additional bedrooms, and another full bath (plus a powder room downstairs). Outside, the expansive private yard offers brick terraces, a petanque court, gorgeous landscaping, maple trees, magnolias, and more. Located at 2739 Main Street across the street from a golf course, the property is offered at $699,000.
