“Firefly Acres” c. 1890 Stone Home

361 Center St Phillipsburg, NJ 08865


Thousands of fireflies. Hundreds of wineberries. Dozens of pears. Autumn bonfires. Your own sledding hill. Follow the deer path down the cliffside of an old quarry into a hidden acre of woods, or watch sunsets from an elevated deck tucked among black walnut trees.

Continue to be delighted as the magnificent 19th-century front doors swing open to reveal hardwood floors, masterful woodwork, and eleven-foot -tall ceilings. This stone home includes arched windows grand enough to stand in and deep enough to settle into with a book. The T-shaped footprint means that many rooms have three walls with windows, bathing the home in sunshine and color. Modern upgrades, such as white marble countertops in the expansive kitchen, additional doorways to facilitate entertaining, and second floor laundry appliances contribute to the beauty and functionality of this architectural masterpiece. With legend still circulating in the town of hidden treasure on the grounds, this home is a joy to the eyes and imagination!
