Chester Twp. NJ

4 beds | 3.1 baths | 5.07 Acres | MLS/ID#: 9010129


This authentic, updated 19th century farmhouse on a quiet country lane abuts Hacklebarney State Park. High ceilings, an abundance of windows and glass-paneled doors let in lots of natural light. Situated on over five scenic acres, the adjoining parkland lends an additional sense of tranquility and natural beauty.

Inviting gathering spaces characterize the main floor of this antique home. The large airy farmhouse kitchen, renovated in 2007, has ample space for informal meals and opens to a beautiful square dining room with an imposing (non-working) fireplace. Spacious living and family rooms, also anchored by fireplaces, plus a powder room complete the first floor. 

The second floor, accessed by two staircases, has four well-sized bedrooms, a bonus room/office, two bathrooms and a convenient laundry room. 

Outside, a heated in-ground pool and conversion of the old stables to a multi-purpose pool house with full bath, kitchenette and garage door complete this very special property.

Chester Township offers nearby access to Interstates 78, 287 and Route 24 as well as to the charming village of Chester’s extensive shopping and dining options. This home is also close to the Gladstone train station for service to Manhattan.

About Chester Township

When talking about Chester in southwestern Morris County, you need to distinguish between the Borough of Chester, which is the shopping village, and Chester Township, the surrounding area which is decidedly more rural. At about 1½-square miles, the borough is located at the intersection of Routes 206 and 24 and offers quaint streetscapes lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques, antique shops and restaurants. Chester Township includes 29.8 square miles of farmland, newer residential developments and historic homes.

Incorporated in 1799, over 40%--or 12 square miles--of the township is preserved as open space. There are nature reserves, parks and deed-restricted agricultural property under the state Farmland Preservation Program, which buys the development rights while allowing the farmer to retain title and continue working the land.

The Borough of Chester was incorporated in 1930, and is a separate municipality that shares many services with the township such as a library, first aid squad, fire department, community pool, athletic programs, civic organizations and schools.
