Surrounding Area

Everittstown Road is the Section of County Route 513 within Frenchtown.The route is not a busy one,it is a meandering country road Horse Farms,3 Churches, a farm stand,corn fields,a Horse Rescue Farm,a Horse Surgical Hospital,and right on the border of our town is a Sheep Farm complete with a Border Collie who rounds them up just like in the U.K. !The part of Route 513, about 12 minutes away,close to Route 78 offers easy commute,and Shopping. Walmart,ShopRite,Cracker Barrel,A Nursing Home,A Christian Acadamy School and other shopping choices. We are so far from the main Route 78 that you cannot hear the constant drone of the traffic as you can from the other towns along the big interstate route.

Recent Improvements

Most of the restoration of the buildings took place from 1979-1980 by the current owners in order to save the property from being too updated or neglected A labor of love but now ready to pass the stewardship to the next old house lovers retired and ready to downsize.
