Why we have a crush on this property

I am a sucker for a centuries-old home. This one for sale in New Jersey was built in 1812, and it’s filled with the kind of features that delight an antique lover like me.

Original pumpkin pine flooring can be found on the home’s main level, while period wide-plank floorboards outfit the bedrooms. Intricate mantels surround ornamental fireplaces in the living and dining rooms, while exposed brick leads the way to the second floor, in one of the two staircases in the home.

For me, the kitchen shows how it’s possible to blend the old with the new. Dark wood cabinets thankfully haven’t been removed in a renovation — they add extra vintage charm to the place, and complement a more bright and modern dining table. As for other standout features? A year-round sunroom with skylight windows and a lovely porch to lounge on.

One of the property’s biggest perks, however, is the converted barn on its 0.75 acres. The building now serves as a photography studio, but could easily become a home office or gym. The house, the barn, and a good-sized stone patio are also all are a stone’s throw from 10 acres of conservation land.
