    Description

    It's not everyday that you come across a home of this historical magnitude. This 4 bed 4 bath colonial farmhouse sits on 78 plus acres in Hopewell, NJ. Built in 1690 by Cornelius Anderson, this 3200 sqft home was turned over to Andrew Mershon around 1730. It was about that time that the home began operating as an Inn and Tavern. The current owner has dedicated his time to preserving the integrity of the entire property, keeping its unique originality in tip -top condition. The home contains many features that are as they were in the 1700's. Among them are, the original hardwood flooring, hand carved fireplace mantles (1776), the original stone fireplace in living room and master bedroom, the original cooking fireplace with lug bar in kitchen. In addition to its unique historical features, this home also contains modern day amenities such as 5 zone hot water baseboard heating, renovated bathrooms,and newer appliances in kitchen. As you venture outside the home, you will find,custom brick patio, fish pond, gazebo, and a large entertaining area. Additionally there is a modern outbuilding that has a 3 car garage, storage, and a artist gallery/workshop. As you venture further along the property, you will find horse areas as well as tillable crop fields and woodlands. In the center of the property lies a large bass pond that is used for fishing or just relaxing on the water. It has been local knowledge that George Washington hid some of his troops on this property prior to the monumental battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. This battle ultimately changed the momentum of the war, as the Continental Army regained the confidence it needed with a victory, and continued the pursuit of the Americans campaign in their fight for freedom. Within close proximity to Princeton, Lambertville, New Hope, Washington Crossing State Park, Mercer County Airport, which makes for a great location for the daily commuter or the bed and breakfast owner...If your looking for a historically unique property schedule a showing today!!
