Perched on its own hill, this exquisite stately property is located just North of Paper Mill Road and sits on 1-1/2 acres of lush private property. This historic home dates back to the late 1700s and has had various additions added to it in the 1800s and 1900s. This enormous property boasts 8100 sq ft and was just appraised at $825,000 and is not part of the historic registry. It comprises three stories and has 9 bedrooms, 5.1 baths, and 5 fireplaces, with public water and sewer!

The main floor features a Grand Ballroom with a raised, coffered ceiling that hangs high above the wooden plank floors. The room is bright and cheery with lots of windows and has a stone fireplace with a large outside entrance for moving furnishings in and out. Other amenities include brass lighting sconces on all walls, along with an entryway to the enclosed glass porch that leads to a roomy greenhouse.
The spaciously bright living room has a large wood-burning fireplace with a custom wooden mantel. The room can also be used as a Dining Room with a brass chandelier.
The butler s Kitchen features lots of cabinet space and plenty of natural light. The Study has wall-to-wall bookshelves that can hold an entire collection of books. Off of the Study is a powder room which is adjacent to the Ballroom. The custom-turned staircase takes you to the second level where you will find 7 bedrooms and 4 full baths. The spacious Main Bedroom has its own wood-burning fireplace and two separate doors that open to a spacious Trex balcony overlooking the lush grounds. There are many built-ins and lots of closet space throughout the second floor.
The third floor has two bedrooms and one full bath, along with finished and unfinished attic space.
Outside are two spacious patios and a detached Ice House for cooling your beverages. There is also a circle driveway and lots of parking spaces.
This historic mansion could use some TLC to bring it up to royalty standards while also building some instant equity. A new main kitchen and some bathroom updates would go a long way. Care must be taken when touring this fine home and ice house.
