Location: New Hamton, New Jersey
On the market for the first time in 35 years, this three-bedroom, two-bath clapboard frame house one hour west of Newark, New Jersey, is packed full of historic charm. Built in 1818, the home originally had just two stories before a third was added on, bringing the total square feet to 1,870.
Interior period details include hand-hewn beamed ceilings, wide plank pumpkin pine floors, deep window wells, and Jersey winder stairs. The first level includes an eat-in kitchen, family room with wood stove, and a partial basement.
The second floor is where most of your living happens thanks to a dining room and spacious front porch, living room with an original wood-burning fireplace, and a sewing or office room with a closet. The master bedroom is also on this floor with a walk-in closet and full bath with laundry, while the newer third-level addition rounds out the house with two bedrooms and a full bath.
The historic home sits on almost nine acres of land with mature trees and inviting landscape. A patio is set amongst a perennial garden, and a goldfish pond with waterfalls and a bridge add to the ambiance.
If you’re ready to cuddle up in this quaint home, 18 Musconetcong River Road is on the market now for $344,900.
