Alantha wrote me about her mother’s “really beautiful and unique post and beam farmhouse” in Hopewell, New Jersey.
It was built in 1813, and although it has been updated, many of the original details remain intact. It sits on nearly 8 acres and is surrounded by 200 more of “preserved land.”
Take a look…
The listing says: “Circa 1800’s post and beam restored farm house with many original details and authentic renovations. The long private drive, leads you to this charming homestead, surrounded by 200 acres of preserved land. The welcoming front porch will lead you into the foyer, which is flanked by a formal living room and formal dining room.”
“Large, original wood burning fireplace, with massive pine mantel surround & stone hearth creates a wonderful dining experience. The open kitchen & family room, with WB fireplace, lots of windows and French doors, leading to the side porch & patio for outdoor entertaining.”
“Beamed ceilings and gorgeous restored antique flooring throughout, will impress the antique home enthusiast.” (That’s probably an understatement!)
There are 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
Thanks to Alantha for telling us about her family’s home.
