Description

Welcome to +G+The Hook+G-, a charming historic home located on Federal City Road in Hopewell Township. Dating from 1794, the history oozes out of the property. Be prepared to fall under its charm! Entering the mud room entry next to the single car garage (presently used for storage), you get the first sense of what is to come. The stone tile entry is a practical touch and leads you into the kitchen/sitting area. Where do you go first? The sitting area in the sunroom at the front of the home is beckoning you to come and sit for a while. Imagine viewing the majestic weeping cherry at the front of the home in spring from here, or the autumn foliage. The kitchen is calling too; the brick counters are tactile, try to resist touching them. The ingenious built-in wood food prepping board adds another feature. Note the pantry, which is a good size, and the laundry/half bath off the breakfast area. The focal point of the room is the wood burning stove, one of two in the home. Don+GGt miss the second set of stairs which provides another access to the second floor. Through to the dining room, with its views of both the rear and the front of the property and then through to the large living room. This bright, sunny room is a great spot to relax. The +G+Dutch barn+G- door is a nod to its original Dutch Settler owners and gives access to the deep front porch. The fireplace is flanked either side by deep built-ins providing good storage. The second staircase leading to the second floor is located here and gives an indication of how the property was added to over time. On the second floor leading from the living room staircase, there are two bedrooms, one with a fireplace, that share the updated hall bath. There is also access to the walk-up attic. The primary bedroom suite can be accessed by the stairs in the breakfast area or though the second bedroom. The wood burning stove is a show stopper! There is a comfortable sitting area and ample closet space. The ensuite bath has a double vanity. Located on 1.17 acres with mature trees and plantings, the house has wonderful views of protected farmland and Greenacres. It is just a short walk to Rosedale Park and to Mercer Meadows (location of the historic AT&T pole farm). 6 Miles to Princeton, 3 Miles to Pennington and 5 miles to Lawrenceville. Wonderful bucolic location but convenient too!
