A Storied 1840s Home in Bucolic Pennington CountrysideDriving along a winding road lined with farms, fields and woodlands, the first thing you notice about this lovely country property is a romantic gazebo near a lily-dotted koi pond. Farther back, a large and stately home from the 1840s, and a charming a brick cottage, are the essence of storybook tranquility.Brick patios and stone walkways meander around the home and cottage and into the fenced garden, and beds planted with peonies, roses and perennials provide old-fashioned charm. Near the guest home, an arbor covered with mature and producing grape vines could be your next hobby.Inside the main home, random-width wood floors gleam in rich tones, in rooms that are very generously sized for the time, and accented with crown moldings, tall baseboards and window sills a foot deep.On the main level, there~s a wide foyer from the main entrance. The kitchen, to the left, needs updating, but has a fireplace as a focal point; the dining room is conveniently located to the right. Down the hall, there~s a study with bookcases built into the wall, and a living room with fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases. Also, on the main level near the kitchen are a pair of deep, shelved closets, and a half bath.The upper level has three bedrooms sharing a hall bath, and a fourth bedroom with a private bath, and generous closets in all of the rooms, as well as in the hall. In the walk-up attic, which is mostly unfinished, a room at the back is outfitted with built-in cabinetry, tall table and a rack on two walls. The hunter/sportsman will be right at home here.The home~s walk-in basement contains a laundry area with double-wide utility sink, a large room, a half bath and storage.The cottage, fully equipped with kitchen, laundry, bath, and living and sleeping areas, is perfect for an au pair or in-laws, or as a rental property.At one time, the home was the original Pennington area Poor Farm for people down on their luck. Today, it~s part of a vibrant community with an award-winning downtown filled with eateries and boutiques, a top notch school district and preserved hiking and biking trails. Located midway between NYC and Philadelphia, the location also offers easy access to Princeton, New Hope and Lambertville.
