On a rarely found large tract of land totaling 1.71 acres right on the edge of Pennington Borough, the John D. Hart House is a significant part of Hopewell's rich history, tracing its roots back to the early 1800s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural significance, this exquisite 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home is a true find, believed to have been originally built by a nephew of John Hart, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, who lived nearby. With its freshly painted exterior by a historic home professional and newly installed garage doors, it welcomes with the undeniable appeal of a home that has stood the test of time. Once a thriving nursery dotted with specimen trees and meticulously maintained gardens, the home and grounds are tucked well off the street and feel worlds away, yet right down the road are the Toll Gate Grammar School, Pennington's shops, and conveniences. A spacious covered porch, patio, and fire pit will be a joy throughout the seasons, overlooking a creek and a big, grassy swath of land that's surrounded by charming white fencing. An old barn, once a pony barn, has been thoughtfully converted into a chicken coop, adding to the property's character. Stepping inside, the home's rich history is evident in every detail. Pumpkin pine floors and cherry doors are complemented by antique moldings, built-ins, beams, and antique fixtures. The fireplace mantle in the living room is even documented in the Library of Congress! Yet, historical elements aside, this home also boasts a range of modern amenities designed to offer the utmost in creature comforts. The newly designed chef's kitchen by designer Max Hayden is a downright delight featuring a chevron pattern heated brick floor, exposed beams original to the home, Bosch appliances, and Quartz countertops. There's a chic bar room/lounge off the banquet-sized dining room and an enclosed, year-round breezeway that functions perfectly as a mudroom. Curl up with a book or relax in a cozy space once known as the keeping room. Updated full baths with heated floors will be appreciated and the upstairs laundry room and a bonus room on the third floor provide functionality and versatility. Three bedrooms and a bath are in their own wing, while the main suite, with its private bathroom, a large dressing room, and a bedroom, provides a sweet retreat for homeowners. All new skylights draw in an abundance of natural light while a generator panel, a four-year-old boiler, and a tankless water heater, installed in 2018, offer peace of mind. This magical piece of history is a must-see for old home buffs. Square footage per Hopewell Township Tax Assessor.
