Active (49 Days)


PROUDLY PERCHED near the road in the quaint little village of Georgetown, Mansfield Township, Northern Burlington County, sits an eye catching 2,160 square foot, four bedroom, one and a half bath center hall colonial dating back to 1681. It sits on a beautiful 0.7-acre lot and is loaded with history and character from days gone by. Previous owners have updated and improved the house throughout the years, but it still needs work. The sizable main foyer showcases a beautiful antique door with sidelights that opens to the covered rotunda (or round covered front porch), as one would call it today, that originally housed the US post office beneath it and was once a stagecoach stop. Off the foyer are several large rooms including the formal living room, parlor, half bathroom, and kitchen/dining/great room. This room is the heart of the home and features an open beamed ceiling, working fireplace, and kitchen with wide plank knotty pine floors. The kitchen area with a built-in gas stovetop, sink and dishwasher also overlooks a breakfast room featuring a cedar planked ceiling, skylight, large oven and full baking counter. The previous owner loved to bake and had her own separate space to do just that! There is also a back staircase off the kitchen that leads to one of the bedrooms that showcases original wide plank flooring and beamed ceiling. Head up the main staircase in the foyer to the second floor where you will find four bedrooms and a large full bath with a classic claw foot tub/shower. The third floor offers two very large rooms that could be converted into whatever you wish. Throughout the house are several fireplaces that have been closed off yet remain a focal point, crown molding and other special features. There is forced hot air heat and central AC on the first floor while individual electric baseboard heat covers the second and third floors, all with separate thermostats. The roof has three-dimensional shingles that seem to be in good shape and most of the windows have been replaced throughout the years. The oil tank is in the basement as well as an upgraded electric panel. Outside, the large yard with winding driveway, leads to the back of the house and to an amazing 30x40 concrete block workshop with one overhead garage door. Concrete flooring and electric make this a great workshop for hobbyist or just plain storage. Perennial gardens are scattered throughout, and a cute garden shed is also included. This home is being sold AS IS. Sellers will make no repairs. Buyers responsible for CCO. Cash, Conventional or FHA203K buyers only.
