THE FREDERICK BLAW HOMESTEAD, circa late 1700’s, is a classic example of elegant simplicity - - combining gracious architectural details of a past era with the sought-after comforts of today. The long circular drive leads to this charming five bedroom, four bath colonial on over eight acres in the beautiful Bedens Brook area of Montgomery Township. You will be delighted by historic features such as gleaming wide floor boards, original handcrafted moldings and millwork, vintage hardware, leaded glass, Dutch doors, and recent updates including central air conditioning.
The front door accented with transom windows, leads to an inviting foyer with dentil molding and chair rail. A lovely living room with high ceilings, tall windows, handcrafted moldings and millwork, opens to a cozy library with recessed lighting and fireplace. A back foyer off the library has built-in closets and a Dutch door that opens to a fieldstone walled terrace. A vintage marble fireplace, chimney cupboards, high ceilings and crown molding enhance the dining room. Access from the dining room to a butler’s pantry, cozy den and old-fashioned screened porch make entertaining a breeze.
The dinning room!
The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances and features a cozy sitting area with fireplace, French doors to a field stone terrace, pine floors, hand-hewn beams and back stairs to the second floor.
The barn is still here!
From every vantage point, the views are magical…a pasture and corral, an historic multi-purpose barn, a lovely English garden, fruit trees, tranquil landscaped pond and the greens of Cherry Valley Golf course beyond the front porch. This is the best of gracious, country living, just minutes from downtown Princeton. Offered at…$1,250,000
