A long, winding drive leads to a circa 1820s stone and clapboard farmhouse capped by a slate roof with a copper cupola. Overlooking the Musconetcong River, it is situated on 7.24 farmland-assessed acres in Bethlehem Township in Hunterdon County. This property retains many of its original antique details, adding greatly to its charm. Wide plank knotty wood floors, interior stone walls, a covered porch and a two-story dairy barn with silo enhance this farm property which borders approximately 50 acres of preserved land. Additional farm amenities include two paddocks, three fenced pastures, several sheds, a stone-faced goat barn and a spring house.
This vintage residence contains four bedrooms, two full and one half baths. From the entry foyer there is access to the dining room, which is fitted with a Scandinavian wood stove for chilly nights. In the spacious living room, built-in cupboards and a china closet are refined design counterparts to a rustic stone wall and wood burning fireplace.
The remodeled country kitchen has newer appliances including a stainless steel KitchenAid™ four-burner electric cook-top stove and dishwasher, KitchenAid™ microwave and GE™ refrigerator. Other design details in this eat-in kitchen include European-style cabinets, ceramic tile flooring, recessed lights and a ceiling fan. The mud room nearby provides access to a slate patio or the covered porch and deck.
Also on the main floor is a remarkable master suite with a separate dressing room providing a walk-in closet with built-in organizers, a gracious bedroom with Scandinavian wood stove and lots of storage, and a master bath offering a jetted tub, Corian™-topped vanity, tiled shower and half tiled walls.
Upstairs, three more bedrooms and an office are joined by a full bath. This level has stairs leading to the storage attic and stairs to the living room.
In addition to the extensive farm buildings on the property, there is also a heated in-ground pool with patio, an orchard with apple and pear trees and a grape arbor.
The home is served by oil forced hot air heat, two water heaters, a water softening system and many electrical upgrades.
The Bloomsbury section of Bethlehem Township is located on the south side of the Musconetcong River in the northwest corner of Hunterdon County and is the third smallest municipality in the county. While some modest expansion of Bloomsbury’s residential areas have occurred through the years, a distinctive small town atmosphere still describes this quiet country hamlet.
