More About This House

Offered for the first time in 35 years, this lovely circa 1810 three-story Bank House features interior renovations and modern updates including the kitchen and two full baths, plus a third floor addition. Interior period details such as hand-hewn beamed ceilings, wide plank pumpkin pine floors, deep window wells, a wood-burning fireplace and Jersey winder stairs provide vintage character. Measuring approximately 1,870 square feet, this Bank House is arranged with eight rooms including three bedrooms and two full baths. The first level includes an eat-in kitchen, family room with wood stove and a partial basement. The dining room with access to a large front porch, living room with native stone wood-burning fireplace and door to a front porch, sewing/office/bedroom with closet, master bedroom with walk-in closet and full bath with laundry area complete the second level. There is a newer third level addition featuring two bedrooms and a full bath.

The 8.75± acre parcel is sited well back from the road offering peace and privacy. The paved driveway ascends toward the house and widens to offer ample parking. Mature trees and established evergreens and plantings dot the landscape. An inviting bluestone and brick walkway leading to the bluestone patio is flanked on both sides by stonewalls and myriad bulbs, perennials and pachysandra beds. Nearby, a goldfish pond with waterfalls and a bridge to a brick patio blend in with the natural surroundings. A sensible rain barrel with spigot collects roof runoff helping to conserve water usage. Additionally, the outdoor area includes a screened gazebo and carport.

This property is located in the New Hampton section which is listed as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places (there are no restrictions on the house). In 2006, the Musconetcong River was designated as a Wild & Scenic River by the National Park Service. The river is frequently mentioned as offering the best brown trout fishing in New Jersey. Routes 78, 31 and 57 are close for easy commuting and Newark Liberty International Airport is approximately 48 miles away. Local bus service is provided by Trans-Bridge Lines in Clinton and train service on the Raritan Valley Line is available at the High Bridge station. The Hunterdon County LINK bus offers handicapped-accessible, on-demand bus service throughout the county.

About Lebanon Township

Tucked into the northernmost corner of Hunterdon County, Lebanon Township’s longstanding rural heritage can be witnessed on a drive through its 32-square mile borders. Bucolic landscapes include an abundance of wide open spaces, conservation land, parks and working farms. The township’s terrain is characterized by acres of forests, rivers, streams, gorges and mountain ranges.

With approximately 6,500 residents, the township borders both Warren and Morris Counties, offering access to a network of local and interstate highways. Surrounding towns include Washington Township, Long Valley, Clinton, Readington, Califon and Annandale.

History

The first record of Lebanon Township appears in 1731, and it was incorporated as one of New Jersey’s first 104 townships in 1798. Back in the 1700s and 1800s, small hamlets had names like Woodglen, Anthony, Red Mill and Bunnvale. Bunnvale was named for a prominent area land holder named Bunn, and Bunnvale Road is named in his honor. Hoffman’s Crossing Road traversing the South Branch of the Raritan River was named for the local family who ran a basket factory. Today, the Woodglen General Store is a reminder of a simpler time. A sign outside the store was placed by the Hunterdon County Cultural Heritage Commission, recognizing it as one of the few remaining general stores from the mid-1800s.

Recent Improvements

New 3-bedroom septic and radon remediation systems have been installed.
