The Grubb Estate..Historic Burlington City, NJ
Originally built in 1872 for General Grubb of Civil War fame and later US Ambassador to Spain, this 4 bedroom 2.5 bath, Riverfront Grand Victorian, attributed to Philadelphia's famous architecht, Frank Furness, is being lovingly restored to it's past grandure. From the top of the ornate chimneys and the boxwood gardens to the period ironworks and brick pathways, attention to authenticity and detail is evident throughout. The detailed inlaid woodwork doorways and floors demonstrate a level of craftmanship and architectural design not often seen. 3 of 4 original fireplaces have been converted to gas.A commercial quality cooking area has been added in addition to the period style EIK. A full marble-surround bath is being added to the "General's Master BR". A large 2 story carriage house has been built on the property that affords infinite possibilities as an artist studio or home office use,w/GREAT River views from the balcony. You can close your eyes and hear the past hoof beats of the carriages entering the grounds.
Home is located within Federal designated Historic district and is a documented home in the "Underground Railroad".
