Property Description

This house is a fastidiously maintained historic 3-bedroom classic farmhouse with modern support and utility systems (heat, cooling, plumbing, and electricity), bathrooms, and kitchen. Numerous pre-sale upgrades have been made within the past year including a new roof, new siding, a new oversized septic system, and complete interior and exterior painting. The 1.27-acre park-like property is beautiful with many decorative trees and plantings and many fruit-bearing trees and bushes. Its centerpiece is a pretty in-ground pool with a recently-new safety cover, liner, and filter. The property has 4 auxiliary buildings totaling 4,000 sq ft that the current owner used for storage and for a home-based business. The main building is a newly constructed 2,400 sq ft 2-story barn with electricity and water. On the first floor, there are 2 large clean bays formerly used for oversized vehicles that would be ideal for storing an RV or a boat or for projects such as collecting and working on specialty cars with a half bathroom to clean up after working on them. The second floor is a wide-open space for a home gym, art studio, band practice area, yoga studio, or a home business. Other auxiliary buildings include a 2-car standard garage with a second story for storage, a heated former professional workshop suitable for woodworking or other projects, a garden shed, and a heated/air-conditioned home office detached from the house. All are in good-to-excellent condition. Adjacent to these buildings is a very large parking area with ample space to park one or more of an RV, boat, horse van, trailer, etc. plus a half dozen regular parking spaces. For commuters, trains, buses, and NJ Turnpike Exit 8-A are conveniently accessible. The house is listed in the Cranbury Historic District. It is just a short distance from the historic Cranbury village where there are shops, restaurants, services, post office, public library, etc. Students go to the blue-ribbon K-8 school in the village. Older students in grades 9-12 are bussed to Princeton High School.
