Proudly set along one of Delaware Township’s most beautiful country roads, the J. Reading House is available now for the first time in decades. The land on which this classic stone farmhouse was built c. 1820-50 is rich in history dating to pre-Revolutionary times, involving one of the most significant founding families of colonial Hunterdon County and the state of New Jersey. A substantial bluestone walkway and veranda lead to twin front entry doors and onward to the handsome parlor and inviting living room with stone fireplace. Elegant period details throughout include original Greek Revival molding, pine floors and built-in storage. The warm and comfortable dining room is anchored by a walk-in stone hearth. A powder room with charming, hand painted mural serves this wing of the home. An addition to the rear of the house contains an open kitchen and family room with picture & bay windows overlooking the acreage beyond. Glass sliders lead to a screened-in porch, while a second half bath and mud room complete this level of the home. The ensuite master includes a walk-in-closet, second floor laundry and a balcony. Two of the three additional bedrooms enjoy their own fireplaces, whilst one has been sweetly envisioned in the likeness of a ship’s berth, with built in twin beds and shiplap trim. A full guest bath serves these rooms. In addition to lush rolling lawns, fenced pastures and multiple patio/courtyard areas, the grounds include several accessory structures and outbuildings. A six-stall, bank barn has both electricity & water, tack & feed rooms, and a massive second level screaming for conversion to party space, art studio or other creative use. Original stone smoke & spring houses are still intact as well. It is not difficult to imagine the property’s Enlightenment period provenance when standing among the natural splendor enveloping all around. Stretching from promontory, to valley, and forest before finally terminating at Lockatong Creek, this historic homestead is ready for its next steward. More info here.
