Antique home lovers will be enchanted by a circa 1810 Bank house set on a gentle rise across the street from the Musconetcong River in Lebanon Township. Offered for the first time in 35 years, the present owners have honored the home’s Early American heritage while implementing a wide array of updates and amenities. The result is a comfortable, inviting home filled with charm and character. Arranged on three levels, the layout includes three bedrooms and two full baths.
Period details within the beautifully restored floor plan include hand-hewn beamed ceilings, wide plank pumpkin pine floors, deep window wells, a wood-burning fireplace and Jersey winder stairs. Inside, modern updates such as a newer kitchen and third floor addition are desirable features within the 1,870 square-foot layout. Enjoy seasonal river views from an expansive covered front porch, a tranquil overlook that is ever-changing. Natural surroundings are enhanced by a goldfish pond with waterfalls, three patios, a screened gazebo, mature trees, established evergreens and colorful plantings. The Musconetcong River was designated Wide & Scenic River by the National Park Service; it offers some of the best brown trout fishing in the state.
