This cozy storybook Victorian is a wonderful presence in the heart of beautiful Pottersville.  Originally built in the 1930s it has been thoughtfully expanded and renovated over the years while still maintaining much of its original charm. The one-plus acre setting is magical; natural views of pine trees, apple and dogwood trees, forsythia and many perennials surround the home. Sunlight pours in through large windows and bells can be heard in the distance.

Entering the house, an open floor plan connects the efficient eat-in kitchen to the family room and tiered deck beyond. There is a separate dining room which could also be a convenient home office.  Adjacent is a step-down living room which takes full advantage of the country surroundings through numerous large windows and a  glass door leading to the private side patio. A powder room/laundry completes this floor.

Upstairs, the master bedroom with sitting area is bright with many windows and two skylights - the perfect spot for star gazing on a clear night. The enchanting master bathroom has a claw foot tub, glass shower, tile countertop and cherry cabinets. A hall with linen closet leads to two large bedrooms, one with a built-in desk. These bedrooms share a bath with a pedestal sink and shower/tub combination. With its high cathedral ceilings, the attic could be converted to usable space or simply used for storage.

The captivating rental cottage with a private yard features a loft bedroom, kitchenette, bath and laundry facilities.  Weekend guests or an artist would be equally at home. Additional dry storage is found in a large area at the rear of the detached two-car garage.

Close to major highways, Pottersville is a delight to experience. Excellent schools, numerous children's activities, pancake breakfasts at the firehouse and lunch at the local deli are but a few of the many advantages this peaceful country life has to offer.

Bedminster Township, NJ real estate market

Homes for sale in Bedminster Township sit upon 26 square miles of charming hamlets with antique homes, expansive equestrian estates, lavish town houses, and rolling farmland in the heart of Somerset County's legendary hunt country. This quiet area experienced unprecedented growth during the 1980s when The Hills, a master planned community east of Route 287, opened its doors and the population soared from 2,500 to 8,000-plus residents today. Yet much of the Township retains its peaceful feeling; many unpaved lanes are ideal for bicyclists, horseback riders, hikers, and dog walkers.
