Incidentally, this home is located in the same area of New Jersey as the Charles Lindbergh Hopewell Estate – the fated house from where little 20-month-old Charles Lindbergh, Jr. was kidnapped in 1932.

Our featured house is a lot older than the Lindbergh house, however.

The original core of the farmhouse reportedly dates from 1745.

It is difficult to tell from the outside how old this home truly is (with all the add-ons and updates) but take a look inside…

You get a hint that some of this dwelling is very old…

Look at those heavy support beams – it’s hard to imagine they probably pre-date the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783)!

The kitchen is newer but absolutely adorable in a country cottage kind-of-way:

Love that sensational blue paint on the walls!

It is cozy enough…

But those sofas (above) look like great big doggie beds for a couple of Irish Setters, don’t you think?

It is hard to tell if the stone walls (below) are old or new made to look old

And moving upstairs… check out the bedrooms:

Even though the original part of the house was built in 1745,

Extensive updating has brought 21st century functionality to the pristinely preserved Flemish Colonial featuring beamed ceilings and Dutch doors throughout.

PLUS there is a barn on over 15 acres of rolling hills and pasture land…

It’s a nice barn. Or, rather, a nice “equestrian facility” as the realtor calls it.

If you would like all the details on this magnificent property, see the complete listing here.

Surrounded by Sourland Mountain views and over 70 miles of bridle trails, this 15-acre property is everything one could hope for in a country home.
