229 233 Black River Rd,
Washington Twp. NJ

4 beds | 4 baths | 1.51 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3390408


Here is a unique opportunity to live in a scenic location near Pottersville along Black River Road on a 1.51 acre lot. The property presents two houses above a babbling stream. The main house needs restoration and updating, so the future owner can live in the cottage while fixing up the second house. Pastoral acreage is surrounded by the enchantment of the neighboring stream, meandering tree lines and old stone walls. 

Each home is accessed by a separate driveway, and the cottage has an attached two-car garage underneath with additional parking. The main home features pumpkin pine floors, Jersey winder stairs, fireplaces with period stone work, and beamed ceilings. Each residence offers a full kitchen and two baths. The cottage features recent Berber-style carpet in the living room.  The kitchen is modern, bright and cheery with a window overlooking a charming view.  The first floor also has a bedroom and full bath. 

Located on a country road notable as a fly fishing destination, the two homes are one-and-a-half miles north of the village of Pottersville. These homes are located in the southernmost portion of Washington Township providing a 15-minute drive to the Route 206 corridor and the Peapack-Gladstone train stations.   Large estate holdings, horse farms and parkland share this location in Morris County. Hacklebarney State Park and Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center are also nearby.

Washington Township, NJ real estate market


Washington Township is located in the western-most portion of Morris County, a picturesque part of the state that still maintains a rural feeling with an abundance of farmland and wide open spaces. This is an ideal setting for residents who appreciate a peaceful setting that’s still within commuting distance of Manhattan. 


Measuring nearly 45 square miles, Washington Township encompasses the largest area of any municipality in Morris County. The township borders Somerset, Warren and Hunterdon Counties and is about 15 miles from the Delaware River and Pennsylvania border. Routes 46, 24/513 and 517 pass through town, and Interstate Route 80 is minutes away in Mount Olive, a neighboring community.


Two notable sections of Washington Township are Long Valley and Schooley’s Mountain.  Long Valley was once known as German Valley since settlers from Saxony, a region of Germany near the border of Poland, relocated there in the 1700s. 


Schooley’s Mountain stands as a tall ridge in great contrast to the gently rolling hillsides found in the rest of the region. It became a famous resort in the 19th century due to its natural springs. The region’s iron-infused chalybeate water was said to have health-giving properties and many people promoted the water’s healing qualities.
