About This Old House

A restored ca. 1860 Colonial set back from the road offers an especially serene and tranquil setting for those seeking relaxation. Interior features such as beamed ceilings, wide plank wood floors and two fireplaces lend character to the floor plan. Vintage appointments include generously-sized bedrooms, high ceilings, tall windows, classic baseboards and crown molding treatments. Modern updates provide comfort and livability with the addition of central air conditioning and vacuum systems, plus a three-year old high-efficiency gas furnace.

Measuring approximately 2,691 square-feet, this Colonial is arranged with nine rooms. On the main floor is a lovely sun-filled den/office, a country kitchen with bay window overlooking the koi pond, and a dining room anchored by a brick-hearth wood-burning fireplace which is currently decorative. In the heart-of-the-home family room topped by a massive wood-beamed ceiling, a gorgeous fieldstone wood-burning fireplace creates a commanding focal point. The adjacent light-filled sunroom has a volume ceiling, skylights and door to the backyard. Upstairs, a master bedroom offers multiple closets, a master bath with original claw foot tub, and a special surprise: the master balcony overlooking the picturesque backyard. Four more sizeable bedrooms, a full bath and a laundry area complete the second level.

Lush landscaping crossed by stone-edged paver paths lead to the backyard pergola, an ideal spot for entertaining and al fresco dining. Welcoming scents of lilacs and peonies fill the air, while flowering dogwoods, apple trees, a fenced-in vegetable garden and a koi pond enhance the outdoor enjoyment. Scenic level land behind the house gives way to a wooded area. Completing the serene grounds are a two-door shed, paver walkway to the sunroom, and back porch connecting the house and garage. This charming home, once an old manse, was featured on the 2016 Historical House Tour hosted by the Washington Township Historical Society.

Located in the Schooley’s Mountain section of Long Valley, this historic area features established neighborhoods and rural farmland. Close to shopping, restaurants and commuting highways, Routes 46, 24/513 and 517 pass through town, and Interstate Route 80 is minutes away in neighboring Mount Olive. Newark Liberty International Airport is about 30 miles east of Long Valley.
