Lovers of American history and nature, take note: This charming Cape Cod sits on property within the borders of Washington Crossing State Park, a 3,500-acre preserve dotted with historic markers and buildings, open fields, an open-air theater, and trails for hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
The highlights of the home are many. In the living room, wood floors and a wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in, lighted bookcases take center stage. An opening in the wall offers a glimpse of the kitchen, and allows natural light to stream through.
The large, country kitchen is equipped with black stainless steel appliances, including a ceramic cook top and a refrigerator with French doors; a traditional apron sink, deep enough to accommodate large pots and pans, set in one of two quartz-topped islands with seating for a total of eight; rough-hewn ceiling beams; open pantry shelves and ample cabinet space. Opening to the dining room, and offering views of and access to the spacious deck and backyard, this room will doubtless become the focal point for year-round entertaining.
A few steps down from the dining room is a home office which closes off with a pocket door. On the other side of the kitchen, a full bath with pedestal sink and Jacuzzi soaking tub/shower offers access to the deck, making it the perfect point of entry after a swim in the above-ground pool.
The first-floor master suite has a sunlit walk-in closet, and a white and gray spa-like bathroom, the focal point of which is the large steam shower with built-in bench and six shower heads, including rainfall and body sprayers.
On the upper level, two bedrooms (including one with a sitting area) share a hall bath with shower. A third room could be transformed into a bedroom with the addition of a closet, or used as a playroom or home office.
Part of the basement is finished and includes a bar, full bath, and media space; the rest is well organized and offers tremendous amounts of storage space, both on open shelving and behind closed doors. A Bilco door offers easy access to the yard, which is dotted with mature trees, as well as sheds for the garden, pool and whole-house generator.
Very recent upgrades include new windows nearly throughout, a new front door, and new roof and gutter guards.
In addition to its prime location bordering the park, the home also offers very easy access to I95, and nearby train stations in Hamilton and West Trenton, with rail access to New York City and Philadelphia.
