Stately In Stature, Dignified Living

Farnsworth Ave, Bordentown, NJ 08505, USA
$750,000

Description

The most prominent corner in historic Bordentown is an apt match for the impressive grandeur of this treasured home built by Colonel Joseph Borden, son of the town’s namesake, successful businessman and Congressman, and Revolution-era patriot. Compelling architecture delights the eye and tempts the imagination. The elegant simplicity of the exterior is complimented by cast iron supported sun porch and the truly exquisite cast iron fence that frequently draws photographers. The dramatic entrance hall and the grandly scaled formal rooms on either side display bespoke molding, large windows and handsome mirrors typical of the style. A proper butler’s pantry, large mudroom, and a modernized, sun-kissed kitchen offer functionality to the splendor of the entertaining spaces. On the 2nd level, the main bedroom suite currently combines two bedrooms with a shared bath featuring a clawfoot tub and vintage tilework. One serving as the sleeping chamber and the other as a large dressing room with soaring ceilings and ample closet space. A Paris-inspired hall bath and three additional bedrooms are perfect for guests. A flexible upper level floor plan allows for 4-5 bedrooms in total. Step out back into the beautifully planted garden on the large-for-town, nearly half-acre, lot. An attached garage and brick driveway offer off-street parking for 4. A prime location in Bordentown City’s coveted Hilltop neighborhood, a single block from downtown shops and dining, and just 45 minutes from Philadelphia and 75 from NYC.
