Ideal as a weekend getaway or year ‘round home, a beautifully restored circa 1860 Colonial is an unparalleled offering in the scenic countryside of Hardwick. This notable Warren County property has over 500 feet of frontage on the Paulinskill River for fishing, kayaking or simply enjoying sun-dappled water views. An online video here is an outstanding introduction to the home and acreage.
Solidly constructed of whitewashed brick, the Federalist architectural style creates a gracious presence on six serene acres. The 3,700+ square foot layout offers three bedrooms and two-and-one half baths, while an oversized detached garage has parking for two vehicles. Buyers seeking a refuge from city living will appreciate the convenient location of this antique home less than 65 miles from midtown Manhattan and about 90 miles from center city Philadelphia. Hudson County towns like Jersey City and Hoboken are about 60 miles from rural Hardwick. Proximity to major metropolitan centers makes this property an ideal weekend or vacation home with plenty of space for guests and family members.
Sited along a peaceful country road a small bridge leads to this impressive Colonial featuring a covered front porch and serene views. The interior is painted white to complement the warmly-toned wood floors and architectural details throughout. Generous gathering spaces include an expansive front-to-back living room, clean-lined dining room, center island chef’s kitchen and fireside home office with a private entrance. Two staircases ascend to the second floor, where a renovated hall bath serves two roomy bedrooms. The master suite is arranged with a spacious sitting room, large walk-in closet and luxurious master bath.
Thoughtfully renovated in 2018, this home presents all new walls, custom wood floors, a showroom kitchen, upgraded tile baths, plus new insulation and mechanical’s.
This antique Colonial is just minutes from Blairstown’s charming downtown for shops, restaurants, the intimate theater space at Roy’s Hall, and Blair Academy, a prominent private high school founded in 1848. Alumni include athletes, writers, politicians, musicians and top executives, including the late Jack Turpin who was a proud 1962 graduate.
