HISTORIC 1870S VICTORIAN GEM SPARKLES IN VILLAGE OF OLDWICKThis enchanting Victorian has been recognized as one of the village’s premier historic buildings by the Oldwick Historical Society and
has had subsequent additions over time that have blended seamlessly with this unique home. A spacious 15-room interior features wide
plank pumpkin pine flooring, three fireplaces, extensive molding treatments, faux painted walls, French doors and three levels of living
space. The 3,644 square foot layout offers three bedrooms, three full baths and one half bath.
After stepping onto the covered front porch, a double door entry reveals the roomy foyer fitted with pumpkin pine floors and picture
frame moldings. In the living room, a two-sided fireplace is flanked by built-in cabinetry wrapping around two walls and double sets of
French doors topped by transom windows. Double doors from the living room open into the parlor/keeping room, where there is access to
the home’s main staircase and the front porch. A roomy den with fireplace and built-in cupboard is joined by a welcoming family room
featuring pumpkin pine flooring, fireplace and bay window welcoming in the sunshine. Built-in cupboards, pumpkin pine flooring and
chandelier enhance the den/music room. The dining room features pine flooring, and built-in glass cupboards. A beamed ceiling summer
kitchen on the main level facilitates easy alfresco dining. A powder room with pedestal sink completes this level.
Upstairs, a master bedroom is fitted with plush carpeting over wide pumpkin pine floors. It adjoins a turret-shaped sitting area with a
window seat beyond the carved wood arch doorway. The tiled master bath has a tub and pedestal sink. Two more bedrooms share a nicely
appointed full bath. Also on the second story is the home’s kitchen with a storage pantry in the hall, Corian™ countertops, gas stove,
