The main home has been beautifully restored with period details throughout. The 3.3 acre property is a storybook setting of charming gardens with a pond, stream, small barn and a separate guest/entertainment building. Formerly known as ‘The Inn at Cokesbury,” this historic home has three restored stone fireplaces, a gourmet cherry and granite kitchen, antique beamed ceilings, two-foot deep set windows and wide plank wood floors.

A spacious floor plan on three levels offers approximately 3,500 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths as well as a two-car detached garage or barn. “Kingscroft” is entered through a foyer fitted with wide plank pine flooring and a true Colonial front-to-back hallway. In the living room, a “Lord Rumford” style stone fireplace features a stone hearth and pine mantle. Deep set windows, exposed ceiling beams and double French doors are appealing design details. Nearby, a cozy den has built-in bookshelves, exposed beam ceilings and deep set windows. The dining room is illuminated by a period reproduction chandelier and is appointed with wide plank wood floors.

Adding to the livability of the home’s layout, a section of the kitchen and family room are combined. Exposed ceiling beams, wide plank pine flooring, an eight foot wide stone fireplace, the original stone dry sink area and a beehive oven grace the family room. The spacious kitchen is designed with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, Waterford™ tile imported from Ireland, and a movable breakfast bar topped in marble.

Upstairs, a generously-scaled master bedroom contains five deep set windows, a stone fireplace with wood mantle, two walk-in closets and carpeting over wide plank pine flooring. The private master bath has a jetted tub, a cherry vanity and cherry cupboard. This level offers two more bedrooms, a full ceramic tile bath, laundry closet and dual linen closets. On the home’s third level is the home’s fourth bedroom, a full bath and an exercise room.

“Kingscroft” was originally built and owned by prominent local families, the Farleys and the Apgars. This property is zoned Village Residential. The peaceful grounds provide a man-made 12 foot deep pond stocked with bass, a stream running near the eastern boundary of the property, a fenced bluestone patio, and colorful English gardens framed by stone rows and lattice fencing. Among the outbuildings are a former antique store which includes an historic tavern bar from its time as “The Cokesbury Hotel,” a workshop, storage area and two-story 19th century barn with work bench.

Tewksbury Township in Hunterdon County offers a rural lifestyle that’s close to a network of highways for easy access to Manhattan or local business campuses. The entire area has a longstanding history dating back to the pre-Revolutionary War era, and retains much of its original character. Fine old homes, equestrian estates and working farms dot the open landscape of rolling hills and fields.
