About This Old House

The owners who have lovingly and expertly coddled and expanded this home over their years of ownership are ready to pass the baton to the next caretakers!

The 1830 Cross Roads School House was originally built by the First Congregational Church. After the church burned the Schoolhouse was used as their meeting house for a while. Turned into a residence in the mid 1950’s, this wonderful property exudes the charm and lasting quality of yesteryear, yet has been updated and expanded with the needs of modern living.

For old house lovers, there are wide board floors, exposed stone walls, deep window sills, beamed ceilings, 2 working fireplaces for cozy relaxing, vintage tiles, brass door knobs and plates, cedar shake roof and a lovely garden. For today’s lifestyle, there is a huge sunlit dining or breakfast room with three sides of windows, a large bright family room (or office)overlooking the pool, laundry on the 2nd floor, two furnaces and central air units and lovely comfortable bathrooms.

Overlooking the pool is a convenient pool house with a 3rd full bath etc. There’s also a detached 2 car garage. A new septic is designed and about to be installed. With town permission, one could have a professional home office with shingle outside, utilizing the wonderful big light 1st floor addition with it’s own half bath.

Chester, in Morris County, is a delightful town, originally developed for it’s ore mines, cider and flour mills with fast flowing streams and stage coach stop. It now is a commutable bedroom community for NYC and the many large corporations located in NJ. Yet Chester retains it’s charm because of extensive large parks and preserved farms. Also boasting excellent schools, a downtown walkable shopping area and beautiful homes, it is a town people strive to move into when they are able!
