1885 Victorian
Mount Holly, NJ

Welcome to Historic Mount Holly. It is the county seat with a vibrant Main Street, spectacular architecture, and history at every turn. Settled in 1677, the town is steeped in history.

Part of that history is 402 High Street built in 1885 and only having two owners, so much of the original home has been preserved. Making this home a historical gem! Sitting stately back from the street with its iconic yard urn, brick exterior, slate roof, wrap around front porch, and brick walkways, making this home a true treat to view.

As soon as you enter you are awed by the gorgeous curved oak staircase and floor to ceiling gilded mirror. There are so many original intricate details to notice as you walk through the home: 12 foot ceilings, stained glass windows, ornate woodworking, window locks, light fixtures, fireplaces, doors, hardware, mirrors, and more.

The Living Room, originally called the Library, boasts wonderful views of High Street, as well as a fireplace with spectacular mantle. Pocket doors lead to the Parlor, now being used as the dining room, also with a fireplace. The Family Room, originally the Dining Room, also has a fireplace and opens to the kitchen.

The kitchen was updated 1988 and has all the modern conveniences required for todays lifestyle. This area is very large with plenty of cherry cabinetry, counter space, and a breakfast room with sky lights. Check out the built in hutch with photos of the original owners, the Merritt Family.

A Piazza is located off of the kitchen and family room. Off of the breakfast room is a 3 season porch overlooking the serene and private backyard. The main level also has a powder room.

Take the grand staircase to the second level where there are 4 large bedrooms (originally called Chambers), a full bath, and a half bath/laundry room. The main bedroom has a walk in closet, while the other rooms also have large closets. The water closet has a private commode/sink, while the rest of the bath has a jetted soaking tub, walk in shower stall, and sink.

The third level has two more bedrooms, storage rooms, and amazing stained glass windows. This home has a full basement with updated utilities and Bilco doors to the back yard.

The grounds have been beautifully landscaped with a magnolia tree, Japanese maple tree, holly, yew, and a vast grassy backyard. The large brick patio is the perfect place to dine al fresco.

While this home is located in the heart of historic Mount Holly, there is plenty of off street parking, with a long stone driveway and parking area in the rear of the home. Additional information on this amazing home - in 2011 the HVAC, was upgraded to geothermal with humidifiers on basement and attic units (two zones: first and second floors), 3 gas fireplace inserts installed in 2017, irrigation system.

Own a unique Victorian home and be a part of historic Mount Holly at 402 High Street.
